Anyone know of a good holster for the XDM 4.5 .45's?

That's also like asking if anyone knows of a good car that has 4 tires. Everyone has their own preference of holster style. Perhaps a bit more information can help narrow it down. Are you looking for belt, shoulder, paddle, pancake, IWB, OWB? What kind of retention are you looking for, friction, thumb break, locking, level II, level III?

Have you used any type of holster before, if so what kind and what did you like or not like about it?

I have the paddle holster it came with but I want one level ll or level lll, but I can't find a holster that fits the 4-1/2 .45 XDM

I personally use a holster by Brand X. They are all made of nylon outers and felt inners, level 2 with thumb breaks, and comes in several sizes.

The one that fits my XDM 4.5" 45 is their size A6.

Personally, I like leather owb thumb break holsters. I have both Tagua and Don Hume branded holsters of the like for my full sized XDM, like them both. Other styles, options and retention available, just depends on what you like.

What might be catching you up is the XD vs XDM. Note that for holsters, the XD and XDM versions should be interchangeable, I have had no problems just check the sizes.

XD/XDM holsters are indeed interchangable (this is also supposedly true for the .45 XD/XDM mags, but not for the 9mm/.40 mags). Personally I'll be using a leg holster with a level II serpa.
