What features does this gun have that appealed to you?

Capacity, barrel length, durability and the equipment that it came with.

Tell us about shooting this gun:

Cadillac! It has a phenomenal trigger; very smooth recoil; great grip and beaver tail; long sight radius. It’s super smooth, and fun to shoot!

How does it fit your hand, how do you like the sights, how difficult is it to rack the slide, how would you describe the trigger pull, and how would you describe the recoil?

The XDM comes with three interchangeable back straps to fit almost any hand. It has great metal sights. The rear sight is adjustable for windage only. This gun has a butter smooth slide which is really easy to operate. The trigger has a short, smooth pull with a crisp snap at the end. The recoil is very pleasant and manageable! It’s the best recoiling pistol that I’ve ever shot.

How reliable is it?

100%. Never had a single malfunction in seven years. We’ve put over a thousand rounds through it and it’s been completely reliable.

Any problems with any type of ammunition?

We’ve shot all types of ammo through the XDM, and it chews through it all with no problems. Never a single misfeed or misfire!

For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them?

It’s an amazing pistol that will last a lifetime (or more!). It’s perfect for target shooting and training, and it’s reliability makes it a natural choice for home defense. It’s too large for me to conceal carry, but great for open carry when hiking, etc. it’s my favorite handgun!

Anything else you would like to share about the gun?

It comes in a nice hard plastic case with lots of accessories: paddle holster, double magazine pouch, speed loader, cleaning kit, two 19-round magazines and three back straps (grips). PS: the pistol barrel is match grade!
