Springfield Armory has recently come out with a long awaited compact version of their XD(m) .45 pistol. The XD(m) Compact series in various calibers featured a standard match grade barrel for improved durability and accuracy as well as improved ergonomics. This combination added to the fact that this .45 caliber handgun has only a 3.8 inch barrel, makes for a great choice for a powerful conceal carry option.
If you are looking for a great carry gun, but do not want to compromise on a smaller caliber round, the XD(m) Compact is a great choice. We have also been very pleased with the customization available on these pistols as they feature adjustable grips and an accessory rail. Reliability is also top notch as the XD and XD(m) pistols are modeled after the near flawless design of Glock pistols. Despite a good compact design, the XD(m) Compact is slightly more exspensive compared to some compact pistols of Glock or Ruger, but $679.99 is still a reasonable price. (ImpactGuns.com)
