How to accurize 9mm XDM Elite Empty How to accurize 9mm XDM Elite

Post by sharkdoctor 6/5/2024, 10:46 am

I have a Springfield XDM Elite w/4.5" bbl.  The precision/accuracy is disappointing and not what I expected - say 3-4" groups at 25 yds., this with a range of different lead/jacketed bullets weights and loads, with those known on this B-E List to be good.  POA is adjustable with different front sight heights, but I am looking for advice to increase precision.

Lockup seems tight vertically.  Hood gives some lateral shift and barrel at front of slide seems tight.  
Better leade might help, and it might help with leading, but barrel seems extremely hard compared to 1911 and other pistol barrels I have seen, and rethroating might be difficult.  Rebarreling might be easiest and solve several problems.

Would I benefit from a fitted barrel, say Barsto?  Sellers say gunsmith fitting is required versus a semi drop-in, but I don't think a drop-in would help much.  Can I hand-fit fit a barrel myself?  I have done several 1911's so have that experience.

Any suggestions from those of you with XDM Elite experience would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

The quickest and easiest is to probably ship it off xd to Dave Salyer to work on.

I spoke with Dave at a match last Sat.  While he could do his magic on a 9mm chamber, he doesn't have experience with the XDM.

I also have one of these. I have recently installed a Powder River Precision trigger kit in it.It cut the pull by about half . I've not had a chance to shoot it much since I did this to check for accuracy improvement.

A Burris FF3 was the answer for me. Now I can hit things with it again.How to accurize 9mm XDM Elite 20230518

Sorry, I missed the XDM part.

I also installed that trigger for a much better feel.
As I recall the AMU was tweaking those with some success.

+1 on the Powder River kit. I had an XDM 45 Elite. Was probably good enough to leg out in SP, but never shot even close to the groups possible with a good 1911. Glad I played with one, but sold it on.

i put a kkm semi-drop in barrel in mine and it ended up not needing any additional fitting. made a huge difference in accuracy.
