XDm 45 kydex holsters

I've recently purchased an XDm 45. Love the gun, but finding a holster is a headache. I like kydex holsters but have yet to find anyone producing XDm holsters and no one producing XDm 45's.

If anyone has purchased one or knows someone willing to make one, please let me know. I am sure other people are having the same issue (pictures would be appreciated).

Thanks,

-Jim

Unless you are fitting a long barreled model into a closed muzzle short barrel design holster, all holsters that fit any XD/XDm fit all XD/XDm. With an open muzzle holster, same model fits all XD/XDm. Fitting a holster to a pistol with a mounted light or laser will present more problems and limited selection. Any of the site sponsors as well as just about any aftermarket retailer will have a selection of XD/XDm holster styles.
This is almost like saying you can't find a tire brand that fits on a Ford car or you can't find 9mm ammo that fits an XDm 9mm 3.8 model.

The XDm 45 has a slightly longer overall slide length. 7.75" in the XDM 45 and 7.6" in the XDM 9 and 40.

I was not looking for a open muzzle option. The XDm 45 is actually longer than the 9 and 40 models 7.75" adn 7.6" respectively. So an XDM 45 will not fit in a closed muzzle model kydex holster made for a XDM 9 or 40.


Thanks,

-Jim

Well since IWB is a priority, check out that site I posted for you. I'm sure you'll find something.

I would NOT use an XD-specific Kaydex holster with an XDm. Yes, they will fit, but you can expect unusual wear patterns on the slide. Blade Tech makes XDm-specific holsters, as do others.

WARNING: Unless Blade Tech has changed their web site ordering, you order an XD holster, which is the only XD choice, and in the comments section SPECIFY it is for an XDm. This was told to me on the phone by a CS person at BT. I did that, and twice they sent the wrong holster. They did correct the problem with profuse apologies, and the XDm-specific holster fits much better than the XD-specific holster.
