This Springfield XDM Elite is a factory upgraded version of the XDM. It had a magazine well to help speed up reloading and extend base plates on the magazines. The sights are blacked out suppressor highs and the barrel is threaded, both make attaching a silencer easier. The top of the slide is milled to accept red dot sights. The trigger has been upgraded too, making this a perfect range, defense or competition 9mm.
