Hey, it looks like you got a lot of welcomes, but not many answers. I became sold on the XDm and bought one last month (Aug). The pitches I heard from shills/reviewers: Match grade barrel, polished feed ramp, short reset trigger, 3 interchangeable backstraps, vastly improved grip, deeper grip serrations on the slide. The overall look of the gun--if you buy guns for their appearance--is slicker, shaplier. Of course, if you buy for looks, you should be looking at a 1911 anyway, but if you've had Glocks, then appearance probably doesn't matter to you. The XDm looks a lot better than a Glock.hi there, new to this forum , but but have been around the hk, s&w and glock, among others for a while-- my mai quesiton is--- WHY XDM? OR PUT DIFFERENTLY, TO XDM OR NOT TO XDM, THAT'S THE QUESION , AND IF SO WHY??
