    Debating between Glock and Steyr

    I've been reading both this forum and the Steyr forum and it seems to be split down the middle. I would like to know what truly sets these two manufactures apart. Is it quality?
    Reliability? One thing that leads me more towards Glock is the availability of accessories and more holster options. Can both of these guns shoot reloads without issue?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Glock. Has everything you need. I dislike them and may never own one, but when I started looking for a polymer pistol all I did was compare it to Glocks, knowing thier bonafide reputation.

    Why don't you skip both and get an M&P? Plenty of accessories and you can shoot reloads all day long.

    I agree. Check out the XD, M&P, and Glock platforms..... choose the one you like best and shoot well. I shoot reloads out of both my glock and XD all day long.

    I have a S&W M&P 9mm compact and hate it, which is why I'm looking elsewhere. Who sells the XD in Mass?

    The M&P is a fine pistol and is very similar to a Glock. If you don't like the M&P then there is a good chance that a Glock, Steyer or XD is not for you either. Perhaps you should expand your search.

    What exactly is the reason behind your hatred of the M&P?

    I agree, he might as well just totally leave the polymer platform all together. All of these pistol are fantastic, but pretty similar.

    By the way, I smell a light airy hint of troll.

    I had the M&P compact in 9mm and really liked it. I had, what I thought was an abnormally high FTE rate. When it worked, it was beautiful. I loved it and it was super accurate for me. I "upgraded" to a Glock 30, which I also love. I'll probably have this forever and plan to add an XD soon.

    If you love the G30 why would you move to the XD platform? There are plenty of G models out there to satisfy a new craving. If it aint broke don't fix it.

    If it's a trigger or safety issue I think he might like an H&K pistol.

    Give this a read. I'm not saying I agree with it, just read it and decide for yourself.

    It doesn't really fit my hand too well and the trigger pull is really tough. Massachusetts has VERY STRICT gun laws and all guns must be "Mass Compliant" to be sold from a dealer, which includes a minimum 10lb trigger pull and magazines can't exceed 10 rounds. I probably could have the trigger adjusted but the guns that are available to you guys are a lot different than what we can get up here at the dealers.

    Oh and Springfield Armory isn't approved by Massachusetts either. The only way I could pick one up is through a private sale if someone has one in my state. We can't buy guns from out of state either......which is why this state BLOWS!
