Actually the sight radius in not the only factor for the accuracy improvement, as they are using a new production technique (for them) to make a better fit of the slide and frame. We have seen a noticeably better fit, and we have seen a lot of these.No. It's not the gun that needs to be accurate. The longer sight radius on the 5.25 makes it easy pick up the front sight and shoot at longer distances. Other then that it's the same as any XDM.
I'm not questioning his integrity, or yours ... Perhaps it is both of you who have a problem with someone questioning neither of you, but SA and their claims about accuracy.LOL, you don't think it has been done? I've already told you several times you just need to wait for things to hit print. You wonder why Rob thinks you hate him? I think your constant questioning of his integrity might have something to do with it.
I'm not going to argue with you ... You'll just start claiming that I hate you, also.We have posted our results and I even posted Rob and Caleb's (who has publicly been skeptical of the pistol) public results for you also. Those are not opinions, those are real world tests.
I know of other results (that mirror ours) but there are folks that make a living writing for magazines, so it is not my place to post them on a public forum before their employer does now is it?
I think you would be better served to just go shoot one than to continue to post that you "don't think" SA's claims are accurate. I don't know what their claims are actually, I just know what the gun coming into us are doing.
I think 50 is a good number to give me a scientific sampling. I don't know of a gun writer in the country that is going to get 50 pistols to test for an article.
I about carped myself when I heard that the first time, then I realized that there wasn't that much different besides the slide and barrel length and started looking into it again and found that they go for just slightly over normal XDM price.Take the $1300 5.25 price point, guess how that got started and how many people still think the gun is $1300+.
And I corrected that to the best of my ability ... But someone has brought it back up for their own purpose, I guess.I about carped myself when I heard that the first time, then I realized that there wasn't that much different besides the slide and barrel length and started looking into it again and found that they go for just slightly over normal XDM price.
