No...just the appearance.

I know there good guns but set aside the fan boy stuff and there not any better than a whole slew of "other" poly semi autos on the market yet Glock prices were climbing up into the high fives and sixes before the XD began giving them some serious competition.

Personally, in my book $500 is the top of the market for any poly framed gun. Not that there inferior to steel, there not, but the manufacturing cost is considerably lower.

I have owned poly XD's and Kahrs and actually carry a PM 9 for EDC.

I guess I just see more value in an all metal platform and when I can buy an all steel CZ for $440.00, why would I pay north of $500 for another poly anything?

But hey, it's a preference thing and I get that some are VERY brand loyal so to each there own.

Tack

I've carried an issued Glock 22 for about thirteen years and own a 27 for a handful...In all that time...I never had any problems with the angle of the grips and shoot well with both.

I have been shooting for over 60 years of the 75 years that I have been on this good earth and IMO the Glock grip angle is very noticeably different and not comfortable to me. No longer own a Glock, my first and last self destructed.

I like the 1911 and I like the GLOCK but to be honest I shoot better with my GLOCK than I did with my 1911. Both pistols fit my hand comfortably (mind you I have hands the size of catchers mitts ).

If the people that complain about Glocks grip angle would research how Glock designed their handguns they would never say it again. Probably the silliest excuse to hate a pistol I've ever heard.

you know I read about this (glock grip) on so many sites,that when we (wife & I) went looking at handguns we went to a lot of trouble to find what we liked,and didn't like.
we picked up a lot of handguns,and we finally picked up the glock 23's for both of use.
it feels great in our hands.
and the looks...well

I didn't buy it for it's looks....I bought it to maybe save my ass one day!
looks never crossed my mind...it's a tool,such as my socket wrench,it fits well in my hands....like it was ment to be there!

Didn't meant too start and Glock grip angle argument. If you read my original post, it was whether or not the grip angle enhances feeding. Not if you like the grip angle or not.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to come off as a jerk. I've read about 30 threads here of people just trashing the grip angle so it was a knee jerk reaction, again I apologize. They are not the most aesthetically pleasing handgun but the darn thing works and everyone I've picked up fits like a glove. I recently bought a M&P and when I put it in my safe I picked up my G31 afterwards. To me, the Glock still feels more natural to aim and put in action than any other pistol I own.
