    About all I can tell you is they are nearly the same length,
    but the XDm 3.8 is about half a pound heavier.

    Wow, an entire 8 ounces? Where's the extra weight? Where does the glock slim down compared to the 3.8?

    Not sure, I was just quoting weights from their' technical specs on websites.
    I would expect the additional weight to be in the XDm's slide.

    Grip on the 3.8 is like a full size grip, in some ways they cut the extra off the wrong end.

    Just picture a Glock 19 slide on a Glock 17 frame. It reminds me of a Colt Commander in concept, probably nice to shoot. If Glock offered a 17 with a 19 slide I'd be very interested but the XD is too heavy for me.
