    I emailed SA asking if they have any future plans for an XDm .40 SubCompact and didnt get a reply.

    Any word through the grapevine about this? I would think they'd have a lot of interest in one.

    Thanks for any info you have!

    Thanks Kyle!

    I really like the compact, but Im trying to find out if they have any plans for an "m" subcompact in the near or semi-near future. If not I'll probably pick up a compact from you in a month or so.

    I dont see them making a "Sub compact" in the M series since the compact is pretty much already a "Sub compact" except 3/4" longer

    I was wondering the same thing but decided to get the XD-40 SC instead. While the XDm Compact is very nice and almost the same dimensions, I wanted the smallest size for the caliber. I'm not very big, 5' 6" 135# and I'm planning on this being my CC handgun. That said, so far I'm very happy with the SC. The money I saved in the difference in cost I can use to buy ammo for practice and get my crossbreed holster :)

    If Sprimgfield does anything, it will be some type of micro 9 assuming, the want to spend the $ for R&D and tooling. The market is getting full and everyone seems to compare themselves to Kahr.

    The EMP is nice but pricey. A polyester framed micro 9 at between $400 & $550 would work. It is s corporate decision. A good model for Springfield might be the CZ Rami. They could do worse.

    The RD/tooling cost to cut the 3.8" Compact to 3" SC would be minimal (compared to a whole new gun) and I "hope" it will come in time. One more gun to finish out the Compact line then we'll see where they go.

    Though expensive, the Kimber Solo also deserves a look in the small 9mm category.

    The exception is why it is not a SC, just a compact. It is fine for a CCW hobby guy but I need a SC XDM 40 for my job. They make an XD SC so I hope they come out with an XDM too.
