I want them all!! But if you had to choose 1, which would it be and why?
G17, no question in my mind - Legendary reliability, plus a wide availability of parts (OEM and aftermarket) and mags.
Smith and Wesson's M&P Line. I love my M&P 40, have you ruled them out for some reason?
The Sig 2022 is a steal, nite sights, superbly accurate. I have one in 9mm and it is a great gun. You won't be sorry. Bill
Neg Unionguy, I havent exactly ruled the M&P line out. These 3 are the ones I've been really looking at. I should of stated before but I'm going for a 9mm.
But, out of the 3 my left eye is looking at the SP2022 and my right at the G17.
M&P is also an excellent choice... What little I've handled them I've been impressed, and both Chris and Travis of Magpul Dynamics are running M&Ps as of late and had very positive things to say about them at a recent class.
I'd still probably choose GLOCK based on the aforementioned legendary reliabilty and the fact that they fit my hand well but some hate their ergos.
Awesome, thanks for all the input guys.
Let us know what you decide...and then how you like it!
I'd vote for the XDM. - It's likely the most accurate of the 3, and it fits my hand like a glove. I think that's what it's going to come down to- feel. If the P2022 is anything like my 228, the trigger is going to be much better than either the XDM or the glock. The glock will have the most aftermarket accessories.
Hold and dry fire all 3. Pick the one that feels best. They're all great guns.
+1 on the XDM. I love the feel and function of my XDM .40
If I had to choose between my XDM40 and my Glock 21.... the XDM wins by far.
Glock 17 - Great reliability, cheap parts, tons of aftermarket. The bad part is that ugly trigger, the blocky grip, and the grip angle itself.
Sig2022 - I've held one, but never shot it. Felt great in the hand. I haven't seen any aftermarket support.
XDM - Basically everything like the Glock 17, but larger mag capacity (longer grip), much more comfortable, better trigger, and the aftermarket support is really starting to boom. It's the new Glock for competition that's not a Glock. A bit more expensive, mags are now about the same, aftermarket is still smaller than Glock.
My personal preference is the XDM. I had one in .40 before I consolidated everything to .45. It worked great, and was surprisingly soft recoiling. I'm really hoping Springfield releases one in .45.
I love my XD45, it's a great gun, but it all comes down to what feels best to you. Try to go to a range where you can 'rent' any of these and see if you like how they fire.
Easy Steve, Sig supports the SIG PRO series, the SP2022 is a Sig Pro, parts etc are available. Try Top Gun Supply. Sig will support the SP2022 in the US until 2022. This pistol is still sold in Europe and will continue you to be sold there. A pistol no one has metioned is a CZ PO-1, an excellent pistol. NATO approved firearm. You can't go wrong with the SIG. Bill
+1 for the XDM!
Love it. Awesome trigger, soft recoil, but the selling point for me was holding it... as soon as I picked it up it was all over
Great stuff guys. So many to choose from, wish I could get em all. I was def looking at the CZ as well, but just narrowed it down to the 3. Still looking though and you guys are just making it harder! bubblegums!
+1 on spending time and money at a range to see what works for you. A $600.00 handgun with all the bells and whistles will not do you any good if you can't hit what you want with it. Go with what works for you.
Myself, GLOCK works well for me so a big + 10 for the G17.
