so how do you explain the well documented premature part failures (trigger pins, hammer springs), rust problems (early models), poor sights and lack of aftermarket support? glock had none of these problems but the springfield is superior?Having fired both designs before, I would have to go with the XD9. I own one, and it is a great pistol. I keep it clean, and it has functioned PERFECT for about 850 rounds so far. The quality, and finish is better than a Taurus PT92, and the price isn't too bad either.
The Springfield XD is what the Glock is wishing it was right now.
