This is the XDM striker spring in its forward, relaxed position. The spring is brought to nearly full tension by movement of the slide.
The XDM 45 utilized a long single-filament recoil spring. Note the overhang extending from the top of the barrel hood. Springfield Armory ignores this area and lists barrel length at 4.5 inches.
The Springfield's alternate back straps swept upward and pinned at the bottom. The back straps do not bolster any other mechanical feature.
