I have a few questions for you all. I have the xd-9 w/the 16 round mags right now. I've put around 900 rounds through it and it just seems inaccurate. Well it had the roll pin on the top of the slide starting to come out. So I sent it back to Springfield and they replaced the roll pin and did some test firing and they sent me a target that measures to 3.3 inch groupings at 15 yds. At any rate I saw the xdm today at bass pro and asked the "associate" behind the counter if he had gotten any feedback on it and he told me how much more accurate the xdm is over the standard xd. He told me things like..."the barrel is much better than the standard xd......it is factory sighted to be dead on at 25 yds".....I just didn't know what to believe so I figured I'd ask you guys. I love my xd9 and know I am not the best shooter....but I am a firm believer that some guns can make you a better shooter. What is the consensus? I also was impressed by the newer sights the xdm features. Does anyone know where I can get these sights for my xd? Thanks a lot for reading and merry christmas to everyone.
