    Glock 21 or XD45?

    Which one should I get? They're the same price from my dealer, I like how both of them shoot, and they're similar in size and concealability.

    How reliable is each? How much are additional mags?

    Or should I just buy both?

    XD45.

    Why? Because it isn't a Glock. 8)

    Honestly, I've heard more good about the XD45. Go with the XD.

    Greetings,

    I own a XD45 compact and I am very satisfied with it. Never had any feeding issue, I can carry with the 10 round mag and use the 13 rounds to shoot. The price for 13 rounds mags is decent (www.xdpistol.com) 23$

    There is a lot of customs that fit that gun: sights, rods, springs and I read a guy bought some pieces and did pretty nice trigger job.

    I got mine at 530$ + 50 ammo + 3 shooting sessions at the range with targets.

    Moreover, people at xdtalk are as friendly than here.

    Thank you

    I like my new Glock 21SF. It shoots great, mags are cheaper than XD mags and there's tons of accessories out there for it. I like the grip on the Glocks better than the XD's. YMMV so get the one that makes you happy.

    Seconded. Though I've only shot the XD-9.

    Glock 21 - I myself prefer a glock over just about any handgun.

    But then again, it is your money and overall decision. I have heard a lot of good feedback on the XD though. But I'm a Glocker through and through.

    If you have the money... buy both then send me the one you don't like! \:D/

    You thinking about the subcompact? Service? Tactical?

    Try to get somewhere and shoot them both. I just found that the G21SF fit my hand better and pointed more natural to me than did the XD45, and I also shot the 21SF better, but the XD45 was a nice pistol.

    It's not a .45, but if you want to try my XD-9 Tactical Sat you are welcome to.

    I don't own a 21SF, but I has shot all three versions of it. That's right, there is a third version with Glock rail and single side safety. I did just quasi-inherit a second generation 21 that feels better in the hand to me than a third generation version.

    I doubt I'll make the shoot. I have to work on Saturday, and by the time I could get there it would be over.

    I had the opportunity to fire a few mags through the XD45 this weekend. Extremely smooth and dead straight. I am happy.

    I will be buying one instead of the USP .45 Fullsize (Currently use a USP .45 Compact)

    Greetings,

    One thing about the XD that it took me some time to understand:

    3 models :
    - Tactical
    - Service
    - Subcompact

    Those are the length of the barrel (5", 4", 3")

    The subcompact is ONLY available in .40 and 9mm.

    Then you have the compact model. This one is a Service with a short handle. You can have a 10 rounds magazine and a 13 rounds magazine with a sleeve you put at the end of it to fill up the gap and extend the grip. When you use the 13 rounds magazine, your compact model is like a service model.

    You usually carry with the 10 rounds magazine with the 13 rounds magazine as a backup magazine.

    I know here I am kickin the Glock crowd, but I really think XD is one step ahead of Glock with its XD line and 2 steps ahead with the compact line.

    Thank you
