Springfield Armory XDM 10mm

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Great ergonomics, nice grip angle, modular grip strap, crisp trigger, nice sights, and a reasonable cost. There is a lot to like about the XDM, and we think it's a great value.

The slide sports an adjustable rear sight that is flush with the rear of the slide. The shooter-facing surface of the rear sight is matte black and serrated to reduce glare.
There is a noticeable difference in the grip angle on the XDM compared to the G40. The XDM grip angle is similar to a 1911 at about 110 degrees.
The slide is more sculpted than the G40 and has slide serrations at the muzzle and rear. A cut out in the top of the slide reduces slide mass, which along with the other sculpting, made the XDM the lightest pistol tested.
The XDM series features a modular backstrap, allowing the user to choose between three different rear gripstrap styles from nearly straight to two arched module inserts.
The slide stop lever (right arrow) is a usable size and is easier to manipulate than the G40’s slide stop, our shooters said. The magazine release (bottom arrow) is ambidextrous. The XDM has a grip safety (not shown) similar to a 1911 that gives the pistol an added level of safety, in our view.
The front grip strap and side panels wear a coarse texture that provide grip adhesion without rasping skin.
