    Like an idiot, I traded my Glock 27 a couple weeks ago for a Springfield XD Sub Compact. I really loved the way the XD felt in my hand. However, I wish I had tried it out before shaking hands and trading the G27 away. I could not stand how the XD shot and I was much more accurate with my Glock. I knew I had to get back into a G27 and even offered to buy my old one back. However, my friend really liked it and we shook on it so I just decided to live with the XD until I could move it. I advertised the XD on a local gun trading website and sold it yesterday.

    Went to the LGS today and bought a new "Blue Label", Generation 4 G27 and had them install Trijicon night sights. Pistol has a "UAR" serial # prefix with a test fire date of 2-28-2013.

    I got lucky and was able to sell the XD for enough to almost pay for the Glock. Wound up costing me $35 "out of pocket" for a dumb mistake. I should have known better than to get rid of a good shooting firearm but I really liked the way that XD felt.

    Congrats! While I love my XD series guns, the one I had to part with pretty quickly was my XD40SC. Felt like I was hold a 2x4 block in my hand.

  6. Stand by. The 9mm FanBoys will be along shortly to describe the wrist-breaking recoil of the hideous G27.

    Ugh.

    :dunno:

    You never would have been fully satisfied with your 27 had you not sold it for another gun and only then, realized you made a mistake. Should be worth the 35 bucks.it cost

    I love my G26 so much I just sold my G19 to buy a new Sig for my
    Wife because it was a safe queen.
    That said I think I want to add a G27 to the fold soon.

    Never a good idea to sell a G19 to finance another pistol.

    Just my opinion.

    Don't know about all of that. While I really like my 26, both of them, I also like the 27's and would love to add one to the fold. I haven't shot a 27 yet but I can't imagine not liking it. I would expect it to have more recoil. But, I'd also expect it to pack a bigger punch as well. :cool:

    I just about sold my G27, but I came to my senses and called it off. I did, however, sell my G23, but I haven't missed it.
