XD

I like the additional grip safety. Glocks trigger pull is shorter but a little less crisp. Other than that they isn't that much of a difference.

either one is great, however make sure the xd is new. i'm not sure when but the new xd's have the new finish either melanite or tennifer not sure i get them confused. i used to have one and the old finish was just blue'd. it was bad leave it in the truck overnight and it would have a layer of rust. springfield will refinish if it's a problem. me i just traded mine for an m&p.

S!
(forgive grammar) I myself am at a loss about all the hubbub-bub. I recently looked into the Springfield just to see what all the hubbub was about. Without benefit of being a gun-guru or a gun writer..the first thing I didn't like was the full lenght grip..ok..now I see they made a shorter version. I love my Springfield 1911 but the XP appears as a GLOCK clone(lets get in on that). Cool feature to me the non-pro. Xtra grip safety and the "gee-look it IS loaded feature". I don't know-maybe it fuctions better or is cheaper or comes with a bigger mag..or comes in non-glock calibers. I'm not buying. Course-I already gave my money to Springfield Custom shop and tell Kathy I said "hi". Gots to tell..that was as sweet as dealing with S&W! Very nice service..one rep throughout the transaction. I didn't take S&W deal but that was a special circumstance and I won't repeat that here. They went out on the ledge and I appreciate that! WTG Springfield and S&W

I'd go for an XD. Its a heck of a lot less fugly than any Glock you'll ever see. Plus, it lives up to the Glock's torture tests.

You cant go wrong with an XD.

I bought the XD Service in 45ACP. It just fit my hand better. To me the real difference is in personal fit. Yes, I like the trigger on the XD better, it's crisper. I still sent it off for a trigger job to lighten it up. The more I shoot it, the better the trigger becomes. The down side is it absolutley, positively will not feed LSWC bullets. It does feed moly, plated, or jacketed anything. I hear Glock says don't shoot bare lead bullet in their's either.


My advice is pick the one that fits your hand better.

In terms of reliability they're identical.

The Glock has a longer track record, and more (and cheaper) aftermarket parts and magazines.

The XD trigger is much better, the grip is more ergonomic, and the stock sights are nice and solid. They seem a bit more accurate than the Glocks do.

I've owned quite a few Glocks over the years. I sold most of them when I bought my first XD.

In my opinion, the XD is far, far superior -- not because the people who designed it are geniuses or anything, it's just that the Glock hasn't really been updated since it was designed (adding finger grooves and light rail are meaningless to me). The XD took all of the good stuff from the Glock, none of the bad, and added a few cool extras.

I like to think that the XD is what the Glock would be if it had been designed in the late 1990s.

My answer is yes, as they are both the correct answer. Hold...might I say fondle both and see which feels "right" to you. Nobody else can tell you that answer.

Exactly. I was torn between a G26 and XD9-SC until I was able to hold both of them side by side. The XD just fit my hand better. Definitely fondle both of them...fondling guns is good...mmm...
