Springfield Armory XDm 45ACP 9mm 5.25 Competition Pistol 1 <!  :en  >Springfield Armory XDm 45ACP and XD(M) 9mm 5.25 Barreled Competition Series Long Slide Tactical Pistols: Developed by Rob Leatham for Rob Leatham  <!  :  >The Beretta Nano isn't the new tactical-format pistol to come down the pike, lately. Springfield Armory recently announced the release of the long-slide Springfield XD(M) 5.25"-Barrel Competition Series pistols, including the Springfield XD(M)-45ACP and XD(M)-9mm (9mm Parabellum/9x19mm NATO). Designed with a high degree of input from IPSC Grand Master and champion shooter Rob Leatham, the XD(M) Competition Series pistols sport a Minimal Reset Trigger that GunsAmerica has measured at .1" (.1 inches). This should allow for very fast multiple-shot strings on multiple targets. Leatham calls the XD(M)-5.25 pistol series a "game changer", which DefenseReview would normall chalk up to your basic run-of-the-mill new-product hype. However, while Leatham is a good talker, he's a truly phenomenal shooter, so if he says something's a game-changer, we'll take him at his word.

Noteworthy Springfield Armory XDm-5.25 Competition Series pistol features are as follows:

Springfield Armory XDm 45ACP 9mm 5.25 Competition Pistol 2 <!  :en  >Springfield Armory XDm 45ACP and XD(M) 9mm 5.25 Barreled Competition Series Long Slide Tactical Pistols: Developed by Rob Leatham for Rob Leatham  <!  :  >- Model Contour Frame with ideal grip angle.
- Major Grasp Slide Serations for optimum grip/purchase.
- Mega-Lock Texture (Texturized Grip).
- Melonite Finish (salt bath nitriding) for very hard corrosion/rust-resistant finish.
- Match-Grade Barrel
- Minimal-Reset Trigger with ultra-short trigger reset for faster follow-up shots.
- Fiber Optic Front Sight for faster sight acquisition and faster follow-up shots.
- Lightening Cut on top of slide reduces reciprocating mass for faster cycling and a allowing for a "larger variety of loads" to be used.
- Adjustable Rear Sight allows the shooter to dial in his/her gun for specific loads.
- Minimal Error Disassembly does not require pulling the trigger to disassemble the pistol.
- Maximum-Reach Magazine Release Button – Extended mag-release button allows for faster, easier speed reloads.
- Mega-Capacity Magazine provides for the highest magazine capacity possible. XDm-45ACP 5.25": 13+1 Rounds, XDm-9mm 5.25": 19+1 Rounds
- Loaded Chamber Indicator
- USA Trigger System
- Striker Status Indicator
- Grip Safety
- Mould-Tru Backstraps – Interchangeable grip backstraps allow the shooter to customize their grip.
- Multi-Adjust Rail System™ – Mil-Std-1913 "Picatinny" rail dust cover for mounting lights and lasers.
- Multi-Use Carrying Case (Pistol Case)

The Springfield Armory XDm 5.25" Competition Series pistols retain the standard grip safety, which Defense Review would like to see either removed or moved to the front of the grip, a la the Beretta PM-12S submachine gun and Hecker & Koch HK P7M13/M8 pistol series.
