    There are other important differences between the XD and the XD(m) models:

    1) I would not classify the XD(m) pistols as a subset of the XD models. The XD line has several sub-models in its own right: the 3″ sub-compact, the 4″ and 5″ compact, the 4″ service and the 5″ tactical models. They are available in .45 ACP, .45GAP, .40 S&W, .357 SIG and 9mm calibers.

    2) The XD(m) is superior to the XD line. It is outfitted with a match grade barrel, and is available in 4.5″ and 3.8″ lengths. It also boasts a Melonite finish on the slide, improved ergonomocs, and as mentioned a longer throw on the mag release. Both the XD and XD9m) models have an ambi mag release.

    3) The XD line offers a thumb safety on the 5″ tactical model, and this is the only model in the XD or XD9m) lines that offers a thumb safety. The rest use a grip safety and a trigger interlock safety.
