FIRST SHOTS: New 10mm Springfield Armory XDm

Springfield xdm 10mm review

A moderate but entirely adequate beavertail-­type profile at the top rear of the grip frame prevents slide bite. That makes owning Springfields my prime choice. With newer technologies and procedures used in ammo manufacturing the risk is lessened, even with 9mm believe it or not. Though the bore axis is fairly high the frame remains undercut. Styles ranged from hollowpoints through jacketed softpoints to roundnose flatpoints.

WATCH: First Range Test of the All

Springfield xdm 10mm review

Surprisingly, the 115 gr Extreme Defense was one of the softer recoiling loads because of the light bullet, despite the crazy fast velocity. The only drawback the 10mm faced was timing. As it happens, Rock Island Armory makes Commander frame pistols in 10mm, so if I were to want a 10mm carry pistol…that would probably be the gun I got for that purpose, due to the dimensions and my affinity for that platform. And just what makes an expert? He makes a living as a professional photographer and photography instructor. I decided to switch to the Hornady 180 grain Jacketed Hollow Points for our next round of testing. But the trigger could use some work all around. The only thing missing has been the gun to shoot it.

Springfield xdm 10mm review

Springfield claims to have fired the gun to 10,000 rounds without failure, stopping every 2,000 rounds to oil the gun and change recoil springs. Got to do some shooting with it, so I figured I'd share my observations. The smaller gun weighs a smidge over 31 oz. Its shorter length makes it easier to draw quickly and allows it to settle on target faster. For safety: before handling a firearm read, understand and follow instructions in the manual provided with firearm.

Springfield's New 10mm XD

Springfield xdm 10mm review

Regardless of barrel length, both can carry 15 rounds in each magazine. This pistol also incorporates a grip safety for an added layer of security. Those are still around, of course. But what about this pistol itself? Can you still run really fast? The testers lubed the pistol every 1,000 rounds, changed the recoil spring every 2,000 rounds and ran all 10,000 rounds in two days. Each pistol comes with two extra backstraps, enabling the owner to finesse feel to personal preference. About the author: Levi Sim hunts every chance he gets.

Springfield 1911 Tactical Response Pistol 10mm Review

Springfield xdm 10mm review

A good high, tight shooting grip is pretty easily acquired, which also makes deactivating the grip safety a cinch. You need not squeeze the trigger to disassemble the gun. Detailed Oriented Deep slide serrations fore and aft on the slide make it easy to grab and function the forged steel slide, even with the stout recoil spring paired with the 10mm cartridge. The Melonite® finished hammer-forged barrel and forged slide allow for a steady diet of full-power 10mm ammo, and the full-length guide rod lessens felt recoil. Its capacity is 15+1 and it includes two magazines in the box.

Review: Springfield Armory XDM 10mm

Springfield xdm 10mm review

I haven't been able to find stiffer recoil spring. Always clean your gun up sparkly clean before sending it in. The slide and barrel are both treated with Melonite, a ferritic nitrocarburizing treatment that makes the metal corrosion-resistant. Of course it did well on a human as well! Grab the gun, and it goes hot. Accuracy was impressive, with all loads averaging less than 2. Overall, I enjoyed my experience shooting the Springfield Tactical Response Pistol. I can foresee both failures to fire and accuracy problems, and possibly even cycling issues due to variances in spring tension strength.
