striker fired pistol list
 
Howdy,

I'm looking for my next upgrade (9mm or 45ACP, full size or compact, still looking) but have been out of the loop on new additions to the striker fired market. Can anyone bring me up to speed? Here is what I know (and don't know) currently (in order of preference):

Glock - striker fired
Sig Sauer ?
Springfield Armory XD line - striker fired
S&W ?

HK - no striker fired offerings (verified through customer service)

Any I'm missing?

Why do I ask? I really like my Glocks but would like to try out some other options if available.

Thanks!

S&W M&P's are striker fired. Springfield has added on to the XD line with the XD(M) 9mm,.40,.45 and XD(S) .45 and 9mm soon to come.

The XD(S) is the smallest .45 available.
There is also the XD(M) 5.25 that was made for competition.
S&W has the M&P shield in .40 and 9mm that makes for a grate carry gun.

I dont know if sig has any striker options. All I have seen are not.

The sig p250 is striker I think.

If you are looking to expand your options, then why stay with striker fire?

If you like the Glock, then why change?

Good questions. I like the simplicity of striker fired systems as my wife has to be proficient on them as well; less features is less room for error during a stressful event.

I might not change from Glock at all but I do like to check out what options are available to see if there's room for improvement.

I believe that Sig also makes an MK 25 which is striker fired.

OK, here's the recap:

Glock: all models striker fired
Sig Sauer: P250
Springfield Armory: XD line (M, S)
S&W: M&P
Ruger: LC9 or SR series

HK: no striker fired offerings (verified through customer service)

Beretta nano is striker also. I'm sure there are more. Just got to look around.

Safety, Trigger, Sear, Hammer (RIA 1911)
vs.
Trigger/safety, Transfer Bar, Sear, Striker.

Most of the polymer framed pistols today are similar in function.

Muscle memory, training (with a competent, certified instructor), and willingness to be proficient are what is needed.
Some platforms are easy to work with (revolvers, Glocks, XDm's...) while others require dedication
