Springfield Armory .45 ACP XD(M)
Springfield Armory is finally leaking information about the 45acp XDm series pistol. No samples were available but they had what they called their Ghost XD poster hanging up announcing the existence of the pistol. According to the Springfield Reps, execs from the company flew to Croatia last week most likely to finalize things with this new pistol. Reps said it was real hush hush and thought the prototype would make an appearance at the show, so I will have to check back every day to check. Since there is all of the secrecy no one knew or would talk about MSRP, colors, barrel lengths. Speculation was that the NRA Show would be the first major release of the the new pistol.
The XDm series of XD pistols is getting a second generation. From now on they will be called XDm-3.8 and XDm-4.5. The 3.8 & 4.5 denote the barrel lengths, respectively. The new features include redesigned slip resistant slide serrations, factory available fiber optic sights and the new 3.8 and 4.5 engravings.
