    Springfield Armory’s® Custom Shop listened to pro shooters like 5 Time World Champion Rob Leatham to advance the design of its polymer pistols for competition use. The result is a handgun with improved accuracy, lessened recoil, faster shot recovery and greater sight radius of its newly enhanced performance. The difference was achieved in the details:

    • Create a lightened slide to work with standard and reduced power competition ammunition, and keep muzzle flip and recoil to a minimum.
    • Develop a tighter tolerance barrel fit that enhances and maintains accuracy longer.
    • Add a long sighting radius to improve aiming precision and speed.
    • Allow perfect zeroing with any load by utilizing an adjustable rear sight with an unobstructed flat serratedblade.
    • Include a tall semi-ramp front sight with fiber optic insert to allow instantaneous visibility in any daytime light condition.

    The XD(M)TM 5.25 Competition Series is tricked out with everything a pistol competitor needs and a master shooter desires. It is like a heavily modified custom shop pistol. Hold one in your hands and you cannot help but think high performance. This polymer pistol has the legendary reliability and durability common to all the XD® and XD(M)TMs.

    Springfield Armory® created a thoroughbred. The best of traditional design blended with the latest in manufacturing technologies. They have, once again, raised the expectations of what a polymer pistol can be.

    Lightened slide on a Glock 34 or 35 is legal; assume this will be as well. Think it's a matter of factory lightened slide versus aftermarket gunsmith work.

    You can use the G34/35. You can't do aftermarket slide lightening, but this is manufactured that way.

    Confirmed price is MSRP $865 Bi-tone, $795 black. Not sure what they will sell for in the stores. I'm pretty sure they will be available very soon through normal distribution channels.

    Slide lightening is not allowed as a modification after manufacture. This model is only available in this configuration, that is the factory standard.

    Welcome to the forum Rob and awesome work! Thanks for the info as well. After looking, I see that a few places that don't have them in stock, are listing them for about $725. This could be a ploy to get people interested and looking at their sites and then when they do have stock, they raise the prices.
