I was on another forum and a poster wanted a full-size 10mm that was optics ready. Someone suggested the XD-M. Then another poster said that SA discontinued the entire XD-M line, except for a handful of Elite models.

What??

I went to the website and it appears to be true.

Surprised that there is no discussion here about this.

Yeah it happened a while ago, you’d have to go back in the posts a ways to find it. I don’t know if there was ever an explanation given but I’m guessing that the XD-S sold so well that they decided to go kill off the lower selling XDM line.

Another explanation in that thread was a possible Shot Show release of an XDM-10 Elite line. We shall see...

I must be missing something…entirely possible.

SA website still shows XDM in their lineup.
I just looked using my phone and using their "gun finder" all I see is "elite" models.

Typing XDm into the search gets no guns only holsters and mag's, typing XDm 9mm shows a few "elite" models only.

Looks like the XDM line has officially been discontinued and replaced with the Elite line to me.

So, HS Produkt developed, makes, and sells the XD (XD Mod. 2), XDM, XDs, and Hellcat in Europe, which are imported by Springfield and distributed for sale in the USA. It looks like to me that they are transitioning to the XDM Elite line. I wonder if they will offer the 10mm and .45 ACP in anything other than the 3.8" barrel considering the overwhelming popularity of the 9mm Luger over other pistol rounds on both sides of the Atlantic.

I'm going to venture a guess that they are only offering the original XD (in HS2000 styling) since it is probably the only factory XD available in California due to the state's approved handgun list, but this of course is pure speculation on my part.

I’d bet a dollar to a dime that SA will come out with the full-size 10mm and .45 ACP Elites , as well as OSP versions, in short time.

As for your guess about the original XD lines, I’d say you’re onto something.

I would like a XDM10 Elite 5.25, higher capacity magazine, OSP to replace my regular XDM10's 4.5 and 5.25 that my sticky fingered wife has glommed onto. I do plan on buying a 3.8 compact XDM10 OSP Elite
