Default Opinion On Springfield XD45

I've really been eyeing it after shooting it not too long ago. Curious to hear some feedback from other owners.

You can't go wrong with an XD. They have the same quality and reliability as a Glock, but come with a few extra safety features. I favor the XD's because I can quickly tell if a round is in the chamber and ready to shoot. The palm safety is a nice feature as well. I have put enough rounds through mine without failure to be confident it will work when I need it. To top that off they are accurate and reasonably priced.

A1 hunting supply summed it up well. I have an XD .45 and it's great.

I love my xd-45C and xd-45 service. I shouldn't say this but i actually like them better than my g19. They point better.

I own a few Glocks, and was given an XD45 to test and evaluate last year by Springfield Armory. I wouldn't hesitate to buy one! A better factory trigger than my Glock 21, better hand fit for most people, and easier on the wallet! Not to mention you get the free holster and mag pouch with the purchase to boot! I took one of my officers to Springfield last week and picked him up an new XD45 for a duty pistol. Oh, one other thing. I did a side by side shoot off with the XD45 against my Glock 21. The XD shot better every time, in my hands. If the XD would have been available when I bought my Glock 21, I'd be carrying it.

Both have so far proven to be reliable dependable platforms. Some will like one over the other. I prefer the Glock for many reasons (but mostly because it does not look like a stack of legos, slapped together by a child with downs syndrome, like the XD does ).

I have owned Glocks for many years, and in all those years thousands of rounds later guess what. Not one time have any of them ever failed to go bang. Even if I am shooting some crappy made in Turkey 9mm subgun only ammo. I can always hit what I am aiming at with them. Tell me now why do they suck?

Default glocks suck

its just personal preference. some people just have had better experiences with their glocks and they will swear by them, i am not a fan, and i wouldnt trust my life to them. i think maybe a decade ago i would probably have had no other choice, but i simply prefer the xd over the glock, no offense. didnt mean for the glocks suck comment to strike a nerve. ive just not been impressed by them lately and have talked about 30 people over the last 6 months out of glock and into an xd. i think that from what ive seen, even LEO guys, who actually pick the xd up and try it, they swap over real quick. the xd is truely and impressive weapon

Default The XD45 is a great pistol

and anyone would be well served by it.

Personally, I have never liked a grip safety, and will not own a firearm with said device. Just my personal quirk.

But you would do well with an XD or a Glock. Shoot both, buy what YOU like.
