Well, they're both polymer, black tupperware as some might call it pejoratively. But they look quite different. I think the biggest difference is the grip angle. To me, the XD is a lot closer to 90-degrees, the Glock is more raked. But I couldn't tell you the exact angle difference. The grips, themselves look quite a bit different, with just different markings.

The sights look different.

The slides look different.

I'm certainly not going to mistake the two, even after just a glance.

What, exactly, is your query?

They each are black (most often), have trigger, slide, barrel, magazine, and grip. Yep... they look alike.

I do see a slight similarity, frame, thumb indent, indent around slide stop and back strap stippling. JMO.

I see a huge difference in what CHL said about the grip angle. Where's Cane with his grip angle pic? For that very reason is why I don't like the feel of the Glock. But, I am jaded...

They look a wee bit alike, but then again Bill Murray once hoisted a candy bar that was mistaken for a piece of poo in "Caddyshack". I maintain that the distinction is valid.

Well said, good sir. Well said indeed.

You don't have to pull the trigger on the .45ACP to dissemble it.

And it's NOT a glock!

Don't embarrass the XD with any similarity to the glock.

Just ask the court.
