is it worth it to trade for the xd9.

Asking thison the springfield forum I pretty much know what I am going to hear,,but I carry a sig 225 and I want a little more capacity. I was thinking of the xd 9mm subcompact.What do you think. thanks and please be honest and put your springfield fondness and share your opinion and experience with the xd 9 subcompact.

Well I've owned the HS2000s since they first hit the shelves. I've also has 225s (as well as other SiGs) for many decades longer.

I found my HS2Ks as accurate and reliable as the 225. The 225 concealed better. The 225 probably balanced slightly better than the Croation Sensation and I like the DA/SA trigger on the SiGs more than the SA on the HS2K.

If I want a really skinny concealable hicap I still can't think of any better than the old P-35. You might want to check it out while you're searching.

If I wanted more capacity and wanted to stick with a 9MM I'd go with a model 19 Glock. Rasy to cary and 16 rounds. Hard to beat. The imported Springfields don't crank my tractor.

I would not trade a gun I KNEW worked for one that I HOPED would work.
If you can afford one gun, you can afford two, for a while at least. Buy the XD and compare. Keep the "keeper."

I have the XD-9 SC its a very nice little shooter. Shoots clean, shoots dirty, only complaint is the long pull on the trigger. Not long after I got the XD, I picked up a Kimber Eclipse Ultra II. I'm glad I have the XD while the Kimber goes back due to freq failures. FTF. FTE. I hope my Kimber at least earns me frequent failure miles.

I am a big XD fan but the sig may be a better carry gun. The XD is very reliable but it is big (thick) so that makes it hard to conceal, The trigger isn't bad after you get used to it, or for about $50.00 you can have the overtravel removed.

I've not had a Sig, but I do have an XD-9 Sub. I like the XD except for the bulk and the overtravel in the trigger. Mine has been trouble free and has a very good feel in the hand, it feels better than it looks. If you have no trouble with the transition from DA to SA on your Sig, I doubt that the trigger on the XD would be a problem, at least it's consistant. The only finish problem I have had is on the grip safety, it is blue steel and the finish wants to wear. I can't call it rust, but it has lightened and looks a little rough.

Personally, I wouldn't trade ANY Sig for an XD. The 225 is a great pistol; you can always carry an extra mag or get a 228, 229, or a 226 (my fav). Good luck.

Amen. This is sound advice.

not to sound contrary, but is capacity really that much of an issue for a carry gun?
i think what the old man always liked to say about revolvers might apply here 'if you need to reload it, youre not using it right.'

but ive never done anything with concealed carry...
