Springfield XDM 3.8
I just received a gun that’s been the talk of the town—the Springfield XDM 3.8. There are two notable differences in the standard XDM’s and the XDM 3.8.
Obviously, the barrel was shortened from 4.5 inches to 3.8 inches on this model. The main purpose was for carry, but the way I see it if you change the medium to the small backstrap you have a standard XD, slightly customized.
The serrations on the frame are also different than the standard XDM. These have more of a kink to them as our friend Steve from thefirearmsblog.com describes. They look better, and from what I can tell, it does provide better purchase on the slide.
I've yet to test this one in the range, so I’ll try to get some videos up on our YouTube page soon. Keep checking back.
