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.
