Default The Glock

Glock --- all of the way. a dealer told me that they have had XD's come in with cracked frames, etc. etc and that Springfield is lacking in customer service. I was actually considering an XD since the pricing of everything else has gone up. I am glad that the guy was honest with me. Just a footnote, the dealer knew that I was window shopping. I was not buying on that day, and I buy from their shop almost monthly. Glock is the way to go. Sig is a close second, (due to pricing and parts availability only). Even though things have just gone up a good 7-10%; you still cannot go wrong with a Glock.

I have a Glock 23 in 40 and think its one of the best platforms for this caliber. I'll vote for Glock. CD

Default The billt argument "not"

There you have a person that has experience and the oppoturnity to see hand guns that come back and those that do not. Seems the springfield better have a good warrenty as billt has said.

But still after reading this some say well just buy the one you like. I am with billt I have never heard or read of a glock not shooting very straight for what it is made for and I have heard and read everything good about the glocks wear resistance and corrosion resistance.

So I suppose one could sum this up as saying if you want to trust you life with something that may or may not break when you need it the most go ahead and buy a springfield just because it has the grip angle of a antique.


After listening and reading someones input on how many she/he has seen come in for repair I will stick with Glock. Always loved them always will.
Also compare how many parts you have in the Glock versus the Springfield.
Less parts less parts to break. Great gun. I suppose you could argue that maybe a Sig is a better buy but you have to have a richer bank account than I do to get one.

Some of the inaccuarcy may be in the calibre. I am not sure if it is the .40 or 9mm but one is inherintly more accurate than the other. I would go for the nine just because you can get ammo so inexpensive so you can practice parctice and practice. Not so in a .40 . Get the right round for carry with your glock and I think one would be well armed for any two legged snake.

Go Glock. It's simple, reliable, and accurate. The Springfield will hurt your thumb when you use the slide lever. It just LOOKS cool.

I like my XD's but also like Glock's Too and they are a little lighter.

Well, by that rationale, the 1911 is going on 100 PLUS years of production, with about 97 years in Military service - so I guess the jury still has another 80 or so years to weigh the evidence on the Glock.

They are both fine firearms but I prefer glocks over Springfield's.I do own a hi cap 1911 which is nice pistol but heavy.
