Re: GLOCK OR SPRINGFIELD XD
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.
