First Impressions Thread on Brian Enos Website


The new model is cosmetically redesigned, has interchangable backstraps (grip safety remains, so length of pull is not changed when swapping inserts), the magazine release button has been redesigned to make it easier to activate, there is a second slot on the dustcover rail, and a "match-grade" barrel. The .40S&W pistol can hold 16 rounds in the magazine. The 9mm version holds 19 in the mag, IIRC.

From the thread on the Enos website, it sounds like the trigger has been improved some also. Springfield claims, "The new XD(M)™ trigger has the shortest travel than any currently available polymer pistol along with a similarly short reset which keeps you on target with greater ease for faster, more accurate follow-up shots."

Suburban, I had heard that the 9mm was a rumored future product ! have you confirmed its release as in my area the dealers are still saying only a 40 cal. is currently available.

There are some 9mm XDMs floating around. I don't know if they are available to the general public yet though. I sounds like there aren't enough to go around.

Would you believe that the mags hold 19 rounds?

The 9mm XDMs were available in Kansas City area just a couple of days ago (November 15, 2008). The 40 XDMs are claimed to be selling out as fast as they come in.

It took about a week for mine to come in, 2 weeks ago. It's awesome. 19+1! And 2 free magazines from the company.
Life is good!
