Gun Preview: Springfield Armory XDm 5.25 9mm

Springfield Armory’s much talked-about competition class XDm is in the hands of your faithful correspondent. Crimson Trace marketing maven and Top Shot champ Iain Harrison reckons the 9mm 5.25  is the most versatile handgun on the market. Springfield created it so you (yes you!) can dominate your local IDPA club with righteous aplomb. It sure looks sex, what with all those “match grade” components and the low-weight slide. Watch this space to see if the 5.25 XDm is writing checks it can’t cash or if you should write a check to your local gun dealer for this something-of-a-race gun.
