    3.8 Xdm upgrades?

    I love my .9mm Xdm. 19 rounds with great accuracy. I am caught between "Don't fix it, if it ain't broke" vs. "Any gun can be improved on."

    If anyone has upgrade ideas and why to upgrade, I'd love to hear your ideas.

    If you think it is better to leave it alone, tell me.

    Thanks,

    So far I've added a pearce grip extension so my little finger isn't hanging off the bottom, and one of these:

    Defense Review - Strike Industries Frame Shock Buffer (SI FSB) for Combat/Tactical Pistols: Less Recoil, Less Wear and More Hits on Target! (Video!)

    Next in line is a set of TruGlo TFOs.

    Not much more you can do to an xdm than this. Already a great gun. I just think there to over priced for what they are though.

    I have installed the Powder River Precision Ultimate Trigger group, and the TruGlo TFO (Tritium-Fiber Optic) night sights. The trigger set makes it a much more accurate gun, and the reset is very short. The sights have the tritium behind the fiber optic, and they light up the sights quite well in the dark. AllenM also cerakoted the slide for me, and this pistol is the now the cat's meow.

    Update on the shock buffer - don't waste your money.

    Something went wrong with mine and it obstructed the slide. I couldn't lock it back. I had to put the corner of the slide against my workbench and lean on it to move the slide far enough that I could rotate the takedown lever just to remove that buffer.

    It might be OK as a curiosity, but do NOT put one in a gun you're going to carry.
