So, here I am asking another stupid question. I want to set up an XDM Elite 4.5 for the IDPA carry optics division. No, I don't want to shoot 10mm. So as you have guessed, I'm in a pickle as Springfield Armory does not make the pistol I want so here are my options:

1. Buy the 4.5 OSP version and purchase a new barrel for it from Bar-Sto and pray it fits.

2. Buy the standard version and have the slide milled.

Any useful advice will be appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

I know it's been a while since the end of July, but I just bought a used LEO XDM40 4.5" from Sportsman's Outdoor for $330, they have some cheaper too. I know I had 'Sticker Shock' at the 2022 prices, but I bit the Bullet. They have 'Night Sights' for what they are worth.
