I've pumped six hundred rounds of wallmart special 165gr winchester fmj without a failure, and another 200rds of JHP. The point of aim with this new model is unmatched vs any comparable auto. I did add on the crimson trace (lg660) laser grip. I have big hands and the large backstrap fits best. Although crimson trace said the grip is comparable to the medium grip it appears to be the same size as the large grip! The laser grip is a must for the guy that likes gadgets. Crimson trace once again out did themselves with this new model its low profile is not even noticable at a glance. The glock will shake in its boots when stood up next to the m&p!!

Put 20,000 rounds thru it, pour sand down the barrel, freeze it in a block of ice, run over it with a full size SUV, bury it in mud and hose it off. If it still cycles then the Glock might yawn!!!

I wonder if doing that is what causes so many Glock kabooms.

Nothing that compares to the XD. I've had Glock, Sigma's (ick), and XD's. The XD is by FAR more Superior than any other plastic dishwasher safe gun out there.

Here are some links to Prove it.

I Also like what 'Smoke Em' had to say. Well written Smoke Em', Thank you, and I hope you dont mind if I re-post what you wrote.

Take them apart and look at the construction/design.

The XD has large, robust, heavy steel lugs to support the slide. The Gock uses steel inserts in the polymer frame. I've seen these inserts fail.

Some dislike the grip safety on the XD, but it does allow holstering the gun while not depressing the grip safe and you don't need to worry about snagging the trigger.

LEO Glocks have racked up significant AD's from catching the trigger on accessories on the service gun belt

Trigger on the XD is steel. Glock is polymer. I prefer the trigger on the XD. It's smoother, more discrete.

XD has better grip ergonomics. Everyone agrees on this.

Glock chambers are partially supported, the breech is overbored. They stretch brass. Google "Gock kB."

XD chamber is fully supported. Breech is tight.

Both guns have rust preventive finish on the slide. They're chemically similar processes.

The XD design has won major awards. So has the Glock.

"Compact grip" on the XD shortens the grip length on the 45 ACP about 1 1/2". Ten rd. mag. The full-length grip holds 13 rds. This is a significant design feature you won't find on a Glock.

The XD is made in Croatia, but it's mfg'd there in a plant that is equipped, supported, contracted by Springfield USA. It's a US gun, just like Kershaw are US knives made in China.

Glock is headquarted in Smyrna GA. That's in the USA.

Lots of police depts are trading out their Glocks for the XD.

They're both good guns, excellent guns.

I owned a Glock 22 and didn't care for it at all.

I own an XD, 45 ACP Tactical, Compact grip. I have a Glock GTL 21 laser on it. I also own a Glock tactical field knife.

Glock makes serious stuff. Their guns are serious. I don't care for them, but many swear by them.
