    Howdy,

    I'm looking for my next upgrade (9mm or 45ACP, full size or compact, still looking) but have been out of the loop on new additions to the striker fired market. Can anyone bring me up to speed? Here is what I know (and don't know) currently (in order of preference):

    Glock - striker fired
    Sig Sauer ?
    Springfield Armory XD line - striker fired
    S&W ?

    HK - no striker fired offerings (verified through customer service)

    Any I'm missing?

    Why do I ask? I really like my Glocks but would like to try out some other options if available.

    Thanks!

    S&W M&P's are striker fired. Springfield has added on to the XD line with the XD(M) 9mm,.40,.45 and XD(S) .45 and 9mm soon to come.

    The XD(S) is the smallest .45 available.
    There is also the XD(M) 5.25 that was made for competition.
    S&W has the M&P shield in .40 and 9mm that makes for a grate carry gun.

    I dont know if sig has any striker options. All I have seen are not.

    If you are looking to expand your options, then why stay with striker fire?

    If you like the Glock, then why change?

    Good questions. I like the simplicity of striker fired systems as my wife has to be proficient on them as well; less features is less room for error during a stressful event.

    I might not change from Glock at all but I do like to check out what options are available to see if there's room for improvement.

    I believe that Sig also makes an MK 25 which is striker fired.

    OK, here's the recap:

    Glock: all models striker fired
    Sig Sauer: P250
    Springfield Armory: XD line (M, S)
    S&W: M&P
    Ruger: LC9 or SR series

    HK: no striker fired offerings (verified through customer service)

    Safety, Trigger, Sear, Hammer (RIA 1911)
    vs.
    Trigger/safety, Transfer Bar, Sear, Striker.

    Most of the polymer framed pistols today are similar in function.

    Muscle memory, training (with a competent, certified instructor), and willingness to be proficient are what is needed.
    Some platforms are easy to work with (revolvers, Glocks, XDm's...) while others require dedication

    Mk25 is striker fired? I wasn't aware they made one that was striker fired. Isn't that the Navy version of the P226?

    Beretta makes the BU9 Nano. That is a striker fired 9mm subcompact. I love mine. My review is in the articles section of this website. It's a great little striker fired pistol, acts a bit larger than it is. No where as much felt recoil like the Ruger LCP or 9 and super easy to conceal.

    I believe the Navy version of the P226 is simply called the P226 Navy.

    The P226 Navy and the MK25 are the same, it is NOT a striker fired pistol.
    The P250 is NOT a striker fired pistol.

    Bersa makes a BP9cc that is striker fired.
    Taurus makes the 24/7 and Pro series.

    What about the FN pistol? Nobody has mentioned it. Believe it's the FNS with the 's' meaning striker. FN makes a great product.

    Did they change there minds? I know there was talk of the P250 adopting a striker fire system.

    The LC9 is hammer fired ,
    The Diamondback DB9 is striker fired and has a decent trigger for a micro compact 9mm

    This^.

    I gotta ask, why the fixation of striker fired pistols? There are plenty of great pistols with metal frames and proper hammers with decent triggers.

    I don't think the OP was fixated on striker fired pistols rather just trying to get up to speed on what striker fired pistols were on the market today.
