I can handle that, and seriously,
I was advised, when I questioned the accuracy of the 5.25, that a well known, and sponsored shooter, was conducting a test, and the data would be published, soon.

That statement is on this forum, and I sensed a bit of hostility for even questioning how much more accurate the gun is than the other XD/XDm's ... I'll wait for that article.

Have you ever shot this pistol? The bottom line is - NO. Why do you continue to post negative comments before actually trying this pistol out?

Your signature says SA XDM 5.25" but doesn't say which caliber, therefore am I correct in assuming it is the 9mm? I only assume because at one point the 9mm was the only 5.25". Either way can you let me know your thoughts on the factory sight picture? Thanks in advance.

I just changed my signature to reflect the 5.25 9mm. I think my signature has made me a braggart and I don't want to be thought of that way.

The factory sights on the 5.25 are the best sights I have seen on a stock auto pistol - and match most of my revolvers (except the Colt King Cobra of course).

In my experience the xd's and xdm's shoot similarly. But i like my xdm compact best.

That said i wont be buying any more xd's because i like the xdm in my hands and not because it shoots better but just feels right. I'm always for value so its not because its a more expensive gun or what not. It just feels better. That said my xd40sc is my carry. Dont try to figure me out or question why. It just is.

My 5.25 actually shoots worse than my xdm compact for now because i havent gotten used to it. Although I can tell it has great potential for better accuracy. But thats just my early biased observation

Are you shooting at close ranges like <= 15 yards?
