    Anyone have any experience? Looking for a compact 9mm and the XDM looks very tempting - haven't held one yet but the specs look good. I'm in between the XD and a Glock.

    Any thoughts?

    Just got one last week. Love everything about it. :bowdown:

    Have almost 400 rounds through it with zero failures. Keep in mind though, it has a full-size grip so it would could be hard to CC. Not an issue for me because I'm a little bigger.

    Pretty snappy. Tiny bit more than my SR9... But very manageable. Follow ups and fast shooting are no problem.

    I ordered a $12 spring kit for mine which should reduce the trigger pull down to 3.5 - 4 lbs. :eek3:

    Yea with his overtravel stop and striker safety lever which i use to own both of and also the modified sear from I cant remeber who which required me actually custom fitting it as the custom sear and striker safety lever dont work together. Since the striker safety lever is is at to far of an angle downward and wont let the grip safety release properly. But than again you prob dont even know what the sear or the striker safety looks like in your handgun so its pointless to talk to you.

    And at best my XD was a 4lb pull with just the spring kit it was around 4.5lbs but had some other issues with reliability after the springs, my Glock is pretty much right with my rifle 1.5lb pull

    Those vids show nothing. And if you had such a problem with your XD trigger, maybe you should not have done the work yourself.

    The XDm trigger owns the Glock trigger in every way shape and form. Have a good trigger job done by Canyon Creek and its nearly as good as any 1911 trigger out there. And no I dont have it done, but have felt it next to my Wilson and was very impressed. I've also had and returned the Fulcrum Trigger and tried every other Glock trigger out there and they barely held a candle to a stock XDm trigger, let alone a Canyon Creek job.

    And if you watch the videos you can see the overtravel reset and total travel are all shorter on the Glock

    trigger doesnt cock an XD only releases the firing mechanism :o

    The XD is correctly classified as a single-action design, meaning it is fully cocked by racking the slide. Most single-action autos have manual safeties, but the XD's Croatian designers eliminated the need for such safeties by adopting the Glock-type trigger safety as well as an internal firing-pin block. They also added a grip safety. The XD is a very safe design, but its single-action designation has confused some.
