If you hit up Springfield Armory’s XD website, they have a form up about the new XDM in .45 ACP that allows you to sign up to receive updates when it’s going to be available. According to the information I have, the new XDM .45 will be available for people to see at the 2010 NRA Annual Meetings, which I’ll be attending in Charlotte, NC. I predict that this gun will sell like absolute hotcakes for Springfield. The XDM is a better gun than the standard XD, and people have been crying for a .45 ACP verison for a while now. I expect that the insatiable market for carry guns in .45 ACP will gobble this pistol up ASAP.
If it actually is on display at NRA, I’ll get pictures and info as quick as I can and get them out to you guys – the upgrade to the .45 ACP cartridge in the XDM is something that a lot of shooters have been waiting for!
