The full blowback action of the slide with each pull of the trigger is strong, providing a realistic recoil sensation that is sure to get your attention. And once you've fired your last BB from the magazine, the slide locks back, letting you know it's time for a reload. Firing steel BBs at speeds up to 325 fps and achieving 70 shots per CO2 cartridge, the XDM is bound to provide hours of airgun enjoyment.

The first day it was available, I bought this gun; and a few days later, I received it. I tested all its advertised features, such as the working slide catch/release, the weight of the gun/mag, the field-strip, the mag release, etc. Then I decided to shoot at targets with it. Unfortunately, the little pin that was in the magazine would not pierce the CO2 cartridge correctly, which resulted in a lot of CO2 waste. Also, because of that, the cap would not correctly be screwed; and it took a LOT of effort to open the cap and get the CO2 cartridge out - all this process damaged the cap, the Allen wrench, the screw "rails" of the mag. Therefore, I had to return it.
The customer service, however, was very friendly and helped me ship the defective gun and replace it with no problem. Some time later, I received the replacement, and like always, tested it to make sure everything works. The replacement is by far better: no defective screwing, no dull cartridge pin, and it shoots amazing. But alas, despite the fact that this gun is great, it still comes with flaws. The major flaws I noticed:
1 - Gas leaks when I inserted the cartridge in the mag (which was solved, hopefully, by adding a little extra Pellgunoil on the tip of the cartridge and on the mag's gas release brass-looking thing);
2 - I only got about 42 shots (which is 2 full mags of 20 + 1 BBs) out of one CO2 cartridge. The consumption of CO2 is heavy;
3 - It's a bit difficult to put back the guide rod in its place, when field-stripping, unless you're already a pro (which I'm not);
4 - The field-stripping latch can be hard to turn back to its original position;
5 - The BB are a nightmare to put into the mag.
All in all, I love this gun. I think, despite its flaws, it is a wonderful, fully licensed replica of the real-steel version. It shoots well and feels great in the hand. It is lefty-friendly (except for the slide catch/release - if it was ambi, it'd earn more bonus points), which is helpful to me. If it lasts long, like my Walther PPS M1, I'd be very grateful. And I hope the gas leak problem will be corrected soon.
