Default XDM 5.25 with all the goodies!!

I figured I'd post pics of my XDM and installed the following to it;

PRP Ultimate match trigger kit and polished all components and surfaces(Very well worth the time and money!!)

Tungsten insert Guide Rod

Polished the ramp and chamber of barrel

Polished the striker safety and striker sear contact areas

Springer precision grip tape

PRP Patriot magwell

PRP grip safety

stippled the backstrap



Most of the installation was pretty easy as long as you took your time and had a good resource to refer to(youtube, 2 thumbs up). If you have a fair amount of mechanical comprehension, I recommend trying it yourself. I used a punchset from Springer Precision and the polishing tips for my dremel tool and diamond honing stones. Stippling was done with a fine tip on my soldering iron. Remember, go slow, take your time and polish, dont grind.



Enjoy

I’m a big XD guy… 5.25 is something I’d like in my stable as well.

Nice pistol.

They are a very nice pistol with a lot of nice features however the only complaint I have with them is the trigger; it's like a corvette with great interior, paint, wheels and finish but then they make it a hybrid! The PRP trigger is a phenomenal improvement, the rest was just because I wanted to. Thanks for the replies.

What light is that? I like it.

I have 3 XDm's including the 5.25 (amazing competition gun) and the XDs... That light looks like it would be just perfect on the XDs

It is a Crimson Trace Railmaster. They have the same model in a laser that is even smaller. Very nice operation with three modes, constant, pulse and temporary and has switches on both sides.
