It’s about time! Springfield Armory has released the XDm 3.8 Compact and the website says that they are shipping now. The XDm 3.8 Compact is currently only available in 9mm and comes with a 13 round magazine and a 19 round magazine with a polymer extension. Looking at the kit photo below, it appears that the gun comes with 2 additional extensions so you can repurpose your original XDm 9mm mags.
The original XDm 3.8 in 9mm stands 5.6” tall, but the new compact cuts that down to 4.6”. The new compact only cuts the empty weight(w/mag) by a half an ounce, but the 6 rounds of 9mm also make a difference. I can’t wait to handle and shoot one, but it looks well executed.
