Looking at getting a Police trade-in gun. My choices are Glock 22 or Smith and Wesson 4053. Both are same price, lets assume they are in the same condition.

What would you get??? and why....

Personally I'd pick 4053 ... but that's because I already own a glock and happy with it ... if it was going to be my first handgun... between those two I'd choose the Glock

If the gun is for range only my vote is for the Smith. HD, I would go with the Glock. Nothing worng with the Smith. I just don't like the idea of DA/SA transition in a HD gun. It is hard enough to do at the range, in a SD senario it just overcomplicates things.

Perhaps you are dealing with Summit Gun Broker in Missouri, which has both of these guns in used police tradeins for about $330 (I'm assuming the 4053 is on the CA list - I know the G22 is on it).

I'd probably go with the S&W 4053, because it has a single stack magazine holding 8 rounds. The G22 is made for a 15 round double stack magazine, but you can only buy 10 rounders in CA, which seems like a great waste of grip space to me. And I like aluminum frame S&W semiautos in general - they are durable and reliable.

I think the 4053s at Summit are double action only with no safety or decocker, judging by the photo above. So they are equivalent to the DAO Glock in trigger action.

GLOCK 22!!! Not even close!

Here is my HD setup. and if I want to go to the range I know I can put 30,000+ down the pipe in this thing without any worries.
