The XDM arrived in a sophisticated attache case packed with accessories including (clockwise) three backstraps, a dual magazine pouch with adjustable tension plus Picatinny rails at both edges, an adjustable-tension belt slide holster, and possibly the best magazine loader we've tried. More XD Gear is available from Springfield Armory, including the weapon-light mount that features ambidextrous pressure switch panels.
By mounting the rear sight flush with the end of the slide, the shorter-barreled XDM 3.8 offered about the same sight radius as the original Four Inch Service model.
The difference in length between the 16-round XD Service model magazines (right) and the XDM magazines was small. But the grips they are housed in were very different in feel and orientation.
