XDM 9mm subcompact

I am interested in the XDM 9mm subcompact or the XDM .40 subcompact. Had a dealer call Springfield last week and he was told that they would not be available for sale until end of month Feb 2011 or first part of Mar 2011. Has anyone heard differently? I am intersted in getting asap if and when I can find one.

XDM line does not come in a sub-compact...........they make a compact, and the 9mm version is already out........the .40cal should be shipping by the end of the month........the XD series comes in a 9 and a 40 sub compact

the xdm 3.8 9mm compact is only a little bit longer than the xd9sc it is shorter in height than the xd9sc and is thinner than the xd9sc.

So to me the xdm 3.8 compact is as much a sub compact as the xd9sc is! Trust me on me the xd9sc will print more than the xdm compact due to thickness of the xd9sc.

This is what I'm "mulling" around in my head now........

XD/SC or XDM/C (9mm)...............
I was at my local shop today, axed to see both, but I think they showed me the wrong XDM because the grip "height" was longer than the XD, almost bought the XD because of that, but I need to confirm what I was looking at, I guess.

I'm doing a "search" to compare the two "size-wise"......

anybody got a link for size comparison?

If I were just looking for one gun, it would be the XD(M) 3.8 Compact.

Here is a compare shot of my SC laying on the XD(M) 3.8 Compact

There is a xdm 3.8 with the long reg handle, the one you want is the xdm 3.8 compact it's handle is small like the xd9sc

the XDm 9mm comes in 3 flavors right now:

4.5" barrel full size grip
3.8" barrel full size grip
3.8" barrel compact grip

If they showed you a gun with a grip longer than the XD9SC, then you were shown the regular full size 3.8. You want the 3.8 compact. Big difference, yet 2 gun stores I went to and asked to see a XDm compact showed me the full size 3.8. Neither got my buisness.
