ive never shot an xd or a glock. im not old enough yet to have one so ill find out soon. but looking at the xd the grip is more north and south then the glock. so if looks tell then the springfield would have greater recoil.

Are we talking about real recoil or perceived recoil? Which caliber.

IMO, owning both, there is close to zero difference. Of course that may vary depending on how YOU handle recoil, and how much of an effect the different grip angles have for you.

Got the XD 40 sub and 45 service 4". The mag handle of the XD is a little bit more rounder than the glock. I believe the glock's flatter, longer handle is reason why it has a little more recoil.

Yup. I had a Glock 22 in .40 S&W and it tended to have more muzzle rise on firing, causing the shooter (me) to have to concentrate to re-acquire the target. The gun tended to twist in my hand as well. A rubber sleeve type grip cover helped, but it was inconsistent so I traded it for a new XD40. Wow, that XD fit my hand like a glove, and it put all the bullets through the targets where they were aimed, easily. Not as much real or perceived recoil with the XD40!

recoil

XD45 recoil was perceptively less then the 40 Glock. My personal and humble experience only, other results may vary. 45 was 230 grain FMJ, and the 40 was 180 TMJ. Defense rounds may vary with recoil, but the XD has a recoil system, the glock a recoil spring (if stock). Again, it was my experience. You should really try both pistols out and see for yourself.

What do you guys think, does the Glock produce more real/perceived recoil or does the XD?
:confused: Some of these responses are jokes, right? There is no way in Hell that - CALIBER FOR CALIBER - a Glock is going to have more of any kind of recoil than an XD - Absolutely no way!

Anyone who fails to appreciate or recognize this fact simply isn't doing enough pistol shooting - Period. :)
