This is my third comparison test for my striker fired 9MM pistols.The P-10C and XDM are excellent pistols and my rating pertains to my experience with them.
Reliability: No problems with either pistol! Both manufacturers have excellent reputations for reliability.
P-10C (10) XDM (10)
Trigger: Both have excellent triggers. The edge goes to the P10C. It takes about two hundred rounds to break in a handgun and I have one hundred rounds to go on the CZ. It might be the best trigger of any of the striker fired 9MM.
P-10C (95) XDM (9.3)
Grip: I like the CZ but, if I had large hands, the Springfield would be my choice.
P-10C (9.5) XDM (9.3)
Finish: Close call!
P-10C (9.3) XDM (9.2)
Price: Slight advantage to Springfield. MSRP for the XDM is $624.00. Sale Price $550.00-$599.00 and there is usually a promotion that goes on for several months. The existing promotion gives you four extra magazines, but for home defense, is not important. The CZ MSRP is $499.00 and you can expect to pay MSRP.
P-10C (9.0) XDM (9.1)
P-10C (8.2) XDM (8.2)
Accuracy: Same criteria as the previous reviews. A second or two for sighting the target and then rapid fire from thirty feet. The CZ had a slight advantage in accuracy. Shooting rapid fire is not the best gauge for determining how accurate the handgun is but, in a life treating situation, it is not important to hit the bullseye.. I forgot to mention the XDM magazine holds 19 rounds and the P10C holds 15 rounds. For home protection, in my opinion, not an issue.
P-10C (8.5) XDM (8.3)
P-10C (64.0) XDM (63.4)
