    I hate the feel of a Glock but i love the feel of my XD9 no comparing the two.
    I also have a Sig P226 in 9MM.....im a 9MM fan due to a plate and five screws in my right arm

    Tough call.

    I like Sig and XD a lot. Sig is makes a solid accurate gun. I haven't tried that exact model of Sig, but for me the XD is better. It just a feel and ergonomic thing though. I'm not much of a Glock fan. Aside from feel and sites the Glocks feel more snappy on the recoil to me.

    I'm not sure why you want to sell the Sig. If you like it I'd keep it and maybe add the XD if like that in addition. If you aren't happy with the Sig I wouldn't think of the XD like a Glock even though they have some strong visual similarity I like the XD much more and I like the addition of the grip safety on the XD.

    I can shoot equally well with either Sig or XD.

    Bear in mind that some people will dog the XD just because they don't want to hear of people getting the same performance out of a $500 gun as the one they laid down $2500 for

A few gun informed and experianced individuals said they would not take a springfield over a sig....why would Sigs be that much better?
    XD and Glock are not similar the angle of the grip is differnet the XD has a safety like the 1911 and to me it feels better then the Glock to shoot. I own a Sig P226 9MM and a XD9 both shoot well the XD9 has a lighter recoil then the SIG I think. Love them both!!!!

    You should just save some time and money trying out guns and get a HK

    You still get the German engineering but in a hi-capacity polymer

    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.

    sig

    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.

    i own sig and XD,i think you should keep the sig if it shoots well for you and add the XD to your guns. both are very accurate shooters. as other posters have said a main difference between glock and XD is how it feels in your hand.i much prefer XD to glock in the ergonomics dept.

    [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

    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?"

    I went to a gun show last weekend, I took my Glock with intentions of selling or trading for a Sig 229, in 40 cal or 357 sig. I sold the glock within about 10 minutes, found a SiG 229 40, bought it. 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
