Custom compact XDM 3.8 “Minus”

    Rich at Canyon Creek Custom has created a custom compact variant of the Springfield XDM 3.8 which he has named the “Minus”. The original XDM, despite being called a compact by Springfield, retains a standard sized grip. Rich has chopped 0.5″ off the grip which makes it more concealable without making it uncomfortable to shoot. The cut down magazines are reduced to 16 rounds of capacity.

    Personal Armament Podcast has a very interesting interview with Rich about this gun and speculations about the future of the XD line. It is well worth listening too.
