Xd 45 vs glock 21
 
Which one holds more 45 acp? Can you buy an aftermarket barrel for the xd like you can the glock? Wich do you think is the better 45.?

Don't worry about which one holds more, or who says what about one gun is better than the other. If you are interested in buying a .45 go to the LGS and rent the ones you are interested in buying and shoot them, see which one fits you the best and buy it. Every one has there favorites, likes and dislikes. Most all manufactures of guns be it SA,Glock,SW,Ruger,Kimber,Sig Sauer, etc etc etc all make good reliable guns.

Its not about capacity, but your ability to shoot accurately that counts.

Its not for me im not buying either yet. i just want to have a discussion, see what what people think is a better gun maybe ill learn somthing im bored. (: im more familiar with glocks so id probably go for the 21 but i do like the look of the xd and if it holds more than a glock then id probably change my mind.

I prefer the XDm over the Glock.

Capacity is the same between the two. The XDm doesn't feel so much like a brickbat. Man, that Glock grip is HUGE!!

I despise the fact that Glock barrels can't shoot lead cast bullets, especially in a .45acp. I also hate the fact that the chamber isn't supported.

Ohh, and the Glock is WAAAYYY ugly!!! :D

I prefer the xd. I think it's ally smoother less muzzle flip and recoil. The xd .45 is also more concealable for me. Although the glock is a fun gun I prefer Springfield over glock. I prefer xds over both but just my opinion. You can buy aftermarket for both. Glock is of course easier to find though.

I'm pretty happy with my .45 XD 5" Tactical

I'm thinking about a G17 though.

get the xdm not the xd. much better upgraded design. you dont need a aftermarket barrel with the xdm its superb out of the box super accurate. they have outstanding triggers for a polygun almost on par with 1911's.

there are aftermarket barrels but the factory barrel is really good its not like a glock that needs almost everything replaced or tuned to run...

In .45 the Glock chamber is supported. The .40 S&W chambers are the ones that are not fully supported.

Supported in what?

An unsupported chamber means that there is a small area of the casing's side exposed.

Supported means that the entire casing is covered/supported by the chamber.
