this is my viewpoint on SA XD platform. the XD's are a very good pistol, just that IMO the XDm is better version of a great pistol. trigger seems smoother, interchangeable grip backstraps and match grade barrels. recontoured slide and better sights. i just think of the XDm as an improved version of the XD!
now the SA 1911's. these are fantastic pistols. very reliable and very well built. range in price and features, to suit just about any budget. overall, in the whole scheme of things, i would put the SA 1911's as running close to Colt 1911's. i have nothing but high praise for Colt 1911's, so IMO the SA 1911's are definately top notch.
You owe me a monitor bracket or a cervical vertebra, your option.
I love my XD45 with the 5" geezer barrel. A shooting buddy has the XD9 with the 4" barrel, and it is a fine, smooth-shooting lil pistol with a comfy grip and very managable recoil. That said, i would really like to compare them to a M1A1 by SA before i make my final choice.
I would also like to see Mecgar make some mags to fit these things.
Dead Bears, the only good kind.
