I assume that you mean the XDM, as in "match grade Barrel". A match grade barrel, installed will cost $200 plus and then you still need to upgrade the trigger to equal the XDM. You make the choice.I currently have an XD 9 SC, and I love it.
In the next few months (by spring) want to get an XD for shooting games, target shooting, etc. Which of these two guns do you guys think I should get? Do I spend the extra money for the match-grade barrel or go with the much cheaper straight XD?
Obviously, I'll check them both out closely in the months to come, and I know both will fit my hands...after all, they're both XD's.
Just fishing for opinions of my local XD "brain trust."
