The ideal grip angle of the XD has been carried over to the XD(M)™, but slightly modified contours in the grip will leave you wondering whether you're gripping the gun or it's gripping you. Deeper, longer, and more slide serrations equals a better more penetrating grasp. The "all-terrain" look of the new XD(M)™ isn't about cosmetics, it's about function. The angle and depth of each contour in the grip has been calculated for maximized control vertically, horizontally and torsionally. Rivaling aerospace manufacturing, the XD(M)™ match-grade barrel takes precision manufacturing to a whole new level never available within the firearms industry. The new XD(M)™ trigger has the shortest travel than any currently available polymer pistol along with a similarly short reset which keeps you on target with greater ease for faster, more accurate follow-up shots.
