Well don't know what the fck happened there ^??? Tried to delete but couldn't find the option.
Thank you for contacting Springfield Armory. The XDM Elite will not work with the standard XDM holsters due to the ambi slide stop on the elite. The XDM magazines will not work in the XDM Elite models.
Tried contacting Blackhawk, no response.At this time we have not been given a specific holster that will work the XDM Elite models. I do know that Crossbreed is currently work on a holster for them though.
The only now-traditional XDM’s SA is selling are the .45 acp and the 10MM, both in the 4.5, OSP, and 5.25 versions. Definitely seems planned that way.Has anyone else noticed that a few months ago all XDM's in 9mm disappeared from SA website? The XDM Elites are on the site but not XDM 9mm's. With the addition of the XDM Elite 3.8 in 9mm it seems like SA is trying to replace the XDM with the XDM Elite as their premium level offering in the XD line while phasing out the XDM. If this assessment is true it kind of makes sense. Nearly everyone who bought an XDM either paid for or wished they had all of the upgrades that eventually came out on the Elites.
What they didn’t tell you was, remove the mag well and your older mags fit perfectly. And the Elite mags fit your older XDMs, perfectly, as well.I ask Springfield Armory about XDm mags in the Elite and this is their reply:
"Thank you for contacting Springfield Armory. No, the XDM magazines do not fit the XDM Elite due to the magazine well."
So, I'm assuming, the XDm Elite mags will not fit the XDm.
My 3.8 Elite fits my Vedder holster just fine. It also fits my Remora and Sherpa holsters. My OSP Elite will also fit my Remoras, but the elevated rear sight sticks out.I'm really having trouble finding a holster! SA says XDm holsters will not work due to the ambi controls.

I still have a love my XDm 3.8 compact 40 cal. It's 90 % of the time my EDC.Well, they no longer make the old standard XDM 3.8 compact.
Glad they brought it back in this form. The traditional "compact" double-stacks are kind of dinosaurs, but there is still definitely utility in having a compact and full size that are magazine- and parts-compatible.
Know what you mean. The ability to use full sized 40SW magazines with the extended grip sleeve installed, is also very nice. Some holsters do not seem friendly to the ambi slide stop on the new Elite. Right now, I'm looking for a decent shoulder holster with magazine storage for an XDm 3.8 compact 40SW.I still have a love my XDm 3.8 compact 40 cal. It's 90 % of the time my EDC.
For XDm 40 3.8 compact I had been using Alien Gear 4.0 IWB. For the elite one, which holsters don't work? Is there a list? Have you checked out Vedder holster?Some holsters do not seem friendly to the ambi slide stop on the new Elite.
