Springfield Armory is adding to their popular XDM line with the new XDM 5.25 Competition Series handgun. The XDM is a proven platform with its owners swearing by them. It only makes sense that this striker fired pistol follows the same developments as its striker fired competitors like Glocks and the Smith and Wesson M&P series which all have competition models of their pistols.
The new Springfield XDM Competition series pistols hosts features that lend themselves well to the competition market thanks to the help of Springfield Armory’s champion shooter Rob Leatham who designed it. For increased accuracy the new XDM features a fiber optic front sight and an adjustable rear sight, which will allow a shooter to get a rapid sight picture and modify that sight picture to his or her preferences. To help reduce recoil and muzzle rise, Springfield gave the 5.25 XDM Comp a lightening cut to lessen the weight which in turn decreases the mass coming back reducing recoil, and allows the pistol to cycle faster. It’ll be available in 9mm with a black or bi-tone finish, has a capacity of 19+1 rounds, a total length of 8.3″ and weights 29 ounces. No word on price yet, but if I had to make an educated guess, I would put the figure at $650-$750 judging from pricing of current XDM models.
