Springfield Armory XDm 3.8 in .45 ACP

XDm 3.8 .45 ACP review

Springfield Armory is releasing their XD(M) 3.8 in .45 ACP now.  As its name suggests, this new XD(M) has a 3.8 inch and pretty much mirrors its predecessors except for the cartridge.  This new .45 ACP version has a capacity of 9 rounds or 13 with the Springfield X-Tension magazines.  It has a trigger pull between 5.5-7.7 lbs, features dovetail sights and weighs 27 ounces with the flush magazine and 29 ounces with the extended.  The new Springfield XD(M) 3.8 in .45 ACP could be a good choice for fans of the .XD(M) .45 who wish to have something a little easier to carry concealed.  Price should be around $650 and should be at gunstores soon.
