The G23 and G27 are good guns. I have both and am happy enough to keep 'em around.
Personally, I consider the G23 a lot more useful than the G27. I mostly carry single-stacks (XDs45...probably the XDs9 4.0 after its run through its paces). In the layers of winter, I'm more likely to carry an XDm45 or BHP than my Glocks. Not knocking the Glocks...just personal tastes. I like the fuller G23 grip, and I have a 357sig barrel that seems to dwell inside it constantly. It makes for a great truck and outdoors gun. Sorta the gun I keep around in case I neglected to bring anything else.
For me G23 > G27. My G23 is rarely shot but always near-by. My G27 just hangs around the house. Maybe I'll sell it. If you intend to primarily carry the XDs, I suspect the G23 may fill a role for you better than the G27. Just my own speculation.
