Trigger Pull: The single action only trigger pull on the Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM GBB Airsoft Pistol is what you would expect on a striker fired SAO pistol. There is very little take up with a light release, which should make for great action shooting and help with accuracy when slowing things down.

Accuracy: Using .20g BBs I loaded up the Springfield Armory XDM with propane gas and placed several rounds through my chronograph to see what the feet per second average would be. The last 5 shots I took were actually the fastest averaging 290 FPS, slower than I was expecting, but just about right for close quarters airsoft games. I switched over to .32g BBs since they tend to be more accurate at longer ranges. Shooting from a rested seated position 30 feet away, I took 10 shots. The result was a 10 round grouping of about 2 inches, with one straggler just outside the main group. The XDM did shoot a little low at 30 feet, but the hop-up can be adjusted for this. It was well centered left to right which is good since the sights are non-adjustable.

Build Quality: At SHOT Show this year I commented on the Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM Pistols and how great they looked and felt. Nothing really different now that I have them in my hands for review. I did notice that my airsoft version with the silver slide had a kind of metallic, parkerized finish while my BB silver slide version has a more stainless steel look. I prefer the stainless steel look a lot more and I feel it makes the XDM pistols look higher quality. Hopefully Air Venturi sticks with the stainless steel finish. Build quality and finish are good throughout the gun.

Realism: The Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM GBB Airsoft Pistol is one of the best 1 to 1 copies I have seen out there. It looks identical, including the licensing and markings in all the right places. It also is full blowback with a full size drop out metal magazine, and all the mechanical working parts work the same as the real steel version including the trigger safety, grip safety, slide catch release, take down lever, and magazine release. Field stripping is done just like the 9mm big brother, allowing for easy hop-up adjustments.

Pros:

  • Licensed Springfield Armory pistol with authentic engravings and roll marks
  • Full metal slide and barrel assembly adds realistic weight to gun
  • Functional striker status indicator, slide stop lever, trigger and grip safety
  • Bottom accessory rail for lasers or flashlights
  • Fiber optic front sight and white dot rear sights for easy target acquisition
  • Additional backstraps for replacing worn out grip backstrap
  • Field strips just like the real steel XDM

Cons:

  • Orange tip detracts from realism
  • Blowback action can eat through gas quickly

Comments: Defend your legacy, as Springfield Armory's main slogan goes, with this fully-licensed XDM green gas-powered replica airsoft pistol. Equipped with a heavy duty blowback-functional metal slide and injection-molded nylon fiber-reinforced polymer frame, this airsoft replica has a realistic look, feel, and weight like the real steel XDM. The gun comes with additional backstraps that can replace the current backstraps when they've been worn out. I really like the Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM Airsoft Pistol. It looks and feels very solid with nice balance in the hand. The single action only trigger is short and light, making follow up shots quick and responsive. The blowback action is crisp with good simulated recoil. I look forward to trying out the steel BB version of the XDM as soon as I get my hands on one which should be pretty soon. Take your pick, airsoft or steel BB, either is a great choice!

Like I said at SHOT Show this year I was super impressed with the entire Springfield Armory lineup and now that I have them in my hands I am still just as impressed with the Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM GBB Airsoft Pistols. You are getting pretty much what everyone looks for in a Replica Airgun: 1 to 1 size and similar weight, full blowback action, full size drop out metal magazine, fully licensed, adjustable hop-up, filed strippable and similar build materials you would find as compared to the real steel 9mm version. I also like that you have a ton of choice offered by Air Venturi: Airsoft or BB, 3.8 inch compact or 4.5 inch full size, silver or black slide and even short lower capacity or longer high capacity magazines for the 3.8 inch version.

For more of a traditional Table Top Features and Specifications video for the Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM Air Pistol, then watch my Table Top Review for the Airsoft Springfield Armory XDM here.

Since both the 6mm Airsoft and 4.5mm Steel BB Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM’s are nearly identical with only a few exceptions, I didn’t feel it was necessary to make another almost identical Table Top Video for the Steel BB firing Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM. Instead I want to focus mainly on the differences in this comparison video.

Watch my YouTube Video for all the main differences but in short here they are for those reading this post:

-Steel BB version uses CO2 while the Airsoft version uses Green Gas or Propane.

-There is no orange tip on the Steel BB version while Airsoft versions come with orange tips installed.

-Steel BB versions have 20 round full length magazines for both the 3.8 and 4.5 inch versions, while the Airsoft 3.8 compact comes with the shorter 14 round magazine and the Airsoft 4.5 comes with a longer 25 round magazine.

-FPS for the Steel BB versions are 270fps for the 3.8 and 325fps for the 4.5, comparably the Airsoft 3.8 is claimed to have 280fps with the 4.5 version a bit higher at 330fps. (Keep in mind that steel BB’s weigh more at around .33 grams compared to the .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB’s used for testing).

-I did notice that on the sliver slide version, my earlier Airsoft 4.5 had more of a parkerized metallic finish while my same Steel BB version I received at a later time had more of brushed stainless look to it. Air Venturi has since informed me that all silver slide version will now have the brushed stainless finish.
