    You think we will ever see one available?

    I chose the XDm over the XD because of the match grade barrel, but I would love to see one available in a threaded option so I can attach a suppressor.

    Gotta get that Tax Stamp while you still can

    I was more or less talking about something from the factory.

    Why do you need a factory barrel when there are aftermarket ones? This barrel is a dream to shoot.

    You will most likely never see a threaded barrel from the manufacturer. The additional expense for tooling and the limited customer base is just not cost effective. If you ever did see something offered by the Springfield custom shop it would probably still be an aftermarket barrel.

    LonghornAR15 very nice slide work. Did you do that?

    Just curious, but would it be possible to have the suppressor flush with the slide? Or darn near close?

    I've always wondered what the clearance issues would be, and that's the only thing stopping me from getting my XDM a threaded barrel.

    You would have an issue with the guide rod hitting the suppressor unless you make a suppressor with a cut out for the guide rod. You might be able to make a special bushing that would allow you to use a softer guide rod.

    A quick question. Does the added weight of a suppressor on the end of the barrel affect the timing? Which leads to is it necessary to to reduce the slide weight, as in the photos, to correct the timing? My gut tells me it would require more force to tilt the barrel with the added weight of the suppressor. :confused:

    Great points!!
    My last pistol was a Desert-Eagle, the barrels do not move on the D-E whick makes them perfect for suppressing, and adding optics onto them.
    But the weight of the gun was a huge downfall. The gas operated system was neat though.

    Well, that's what they make Neilsen devices for.

    Yes I did. It was the second gun I had Scott work on (the other being my daily carryXD45C) and I can't say enough about how great the work is. Instead of saying I'm just going to send my two new XDs to him as well.

    I finally got to get out and shoot it with my SWR Trident9. It looks, sounds and, most importantly, shoots great! The light trigger and the match barrel actually made my groups shrink. I'm still not doing them justice with my lack of skill, but I definitely saw a difference.

    Thanks again Scott for the great work and for helping me have a one of a kind XDm.
