Below is a great article on the classic and still awesome 1911 pistol and Springfield Armory’s XDM. Now I will admit it I am a 1911 kind of guy they are always my first choice but I have owned an XDM in 40 cal and my DW and DS both own XDM’s in 9 MM and they are a great gun as well. Not a classic but still a very good gun. So take a look at what one of the best in the business has to say about them and decide for yourself or better yet have a couple of each of your own.
Take care out there
