Sig VS XD
I Have a Sig 226 and an XD9 Service.
The XD is Lighter and Feels Better to Handle.
The XD is More Concealable.
The XD Shoots Straighter.
The XD Has Less Recoil.
Both Guns are Top Notch in Craftsmanship and Materials.
I Loved The Sig Till I Got an XD, Now I'm Waiting for Sig to Answer.
MY CONCKUSION :
When a Man With a Sig, Meets a Man With an XD in an Alley, Nine out of Ten The XD Man Is The One Left Standing.
I own P226's and an XD .40 S&W 5". Thus far, I still favor my Sigs. The XD is still pretty new to me. It feels good in my hand, but for whatever reason I'm far less accurate with than I am my P226s. Maybe I just need more time. I've also had a few jams with my Newer XD and have never had a jam with my Sigs.
I'll continue to work with the XD, but would I replace a Sig with an XD? Not at this time.
I do not have any experiance with a sig. but, I do have an XD.45 and what a great gun that thing is comfortable to shoot, very accurate, and have never had 1 prob. out of it IMO the only thing the same between a XD and Glock is the polymer Frame. I have never heard anything but good things about Sig so I dont know if I would get rid of but, maybe add a XD to collection if you like the way it shoots.
i own sigs and XDs and S.A. 1911s , the sig 220 is the best shooting most accurate .45 out of the box, more craftsmanship is put into sigs,i also have an XD 40 that i like a lot. but i would never trade a p series sig for any XD
I was looking at sigs. today I went with a Walther P99 but, if they had had a reconditioned P226 in the store I would have prob. went with that. I think if I get another for some reason that I havnt thought of yet I will get a Recon. seems like a great deal.
They have with the P250...should be out in a few months.

[QUOTE=Shipwreck;51589]I read a post on another forum this week - I forget which one. But a guy explained in detail a problem the design has, and he compared it to the Glock design. Apparently, from what I remember, the action of the slide can "beat" the locking block in the frame, and over time, cause it to fail. He claimed it was a design flaw. And, I will admit, I have seen a number of locking block issues discussed on the XD forum over time.
After reading about this occassionally over the past few months, I would be hesitant to buy an XD.
i am pretty sure you would be O.K. during the first 20,000 rounds, ship:smt083
I own an XD 45, and a P226 (9mm).
I learned to shoot the 226 very well.
I shot the XD very well instantly.
They both are excellent. It's all personal preference.
Like saying "which is better, the new Nike driver, or the new Calloway driver." The answer is: "Are you Tiger, or are you Phil?"
Here'a a 20,000 round tourture test article on the XD.

I had another gun with me for sale, someone made me an offer I couldnt refuse including a XD-40 in the deal. I took the XD with intentions of reselling it, not needing two 40 cal. pistols. When I got home I couldnt wait to shoot my new sig, I went out to my range and took both guns, shot a couple of clips through the sig, was very happy with it. I loaded the xd, fired a few rounds, was very impressed. Now I have two 40's and dont want to part with either. Both are exceptional guns, I like the sig because it has a hammer, if the xd had a hammer I think the decision for me would be much easier.
It all comes down to personal preference, try to shoot both and decide which one fits you best.
Google the XD torture test...
17,000 plus round with one cleaning, a bucket of sand, ice, mud, water...
I'm not worried about the slide beating ANYTHING...
They shoot ragged holes... see my targets posted here. I've dumped 1000? 1500 rounds through mine? In a few weeks?
No failures, great control...
I also own a Sig. P226.
No complaints there either.... I just prefer the XD
