I remember reading that some time ago. Absurd to beat the heck out of a pistol like that but impressive that it's still functional.

Springfield Armory allegedly has a "torture test" for the XD that's more rigorous than the standard Glock test.

Still - noone is going to subject a pistol to that kind of abuse in the real world...

Springfield did not do the torture test, G&A Handgun Mag did the testing.

It was much more extreme than the Glock test, and one of the major differences is that Springfield told him to go to a gun store and buy one instead of how Glock sent a specific gun to be tested. Not saying Glock sent a 'special' Glock, but Springfield wanted to make sure it was a normal gun that anybody could buy.

And I agree with your sentiments...both are ridiculously reliable, and it is unlikely that any normal shooter will ever reach either Glock or XD's limitations.
