Just to clarify; the XD is entirely made in Croatia and their 1911s are made in Brazil. However, the company itself is an American company and, in terms of customer service, that can be handy.Springfield is an American Made company that has been around a long time and will probably be around for a long time to come.
That's a good point - I got off on a tangent there and didn't clarify that.Just to clarify; the XD is entirely made in Croatia and their 1911s are made in Brazil. However, the company itself is an American company and, in terms of customer service, that can be handy.
Well I say Beretta if you want legendary quality built here in Accokeek, MD. virtually jam free because of the unique and timeless design you can run any ammo through this work of art and trust it will go bang, but if you are looking for Tactical Tupperware then before I even looked at XD, Beretta has got you covered there with PX4 Storm it's available in 9mm,40cal and my choice .45cal now the PX4 models are built in Italy but what the hell they been in business for over 500 years these boys know their gunmetal. Course this is my opinion I could be wrong... but I doubt it.Do you want a Croatian handgun or an Italian handgun?? They are both good guns but I feel the XD is more modern and better gun than the Beretta. The XD was born out of war in the former Yugoslavia and has been a good service side arm while the Beretta has served American troops for a long time. I would say BUY AMERICAN and get a Kimber.
