STI GP6 or XDM9?

I have a black XDm-9 4.5 and while I prefer my Glocks, I'm tempted to replace it with an OD stainless model just for the looks of it. On the other hand I feel like I already decided it's not the best fit for me so I'm contemplating selling it and getting an STI GP6. I've never shot it before so it's a gamble, but the grip looks very comfortable - CZ like, which I know works well for me.

How does GP6 compare to XDm? Anyone owns both or shot enough rounds to offer an unbiased comparison?

I prefer the GP6 over the XD as, to me, the XD feels bulky and top heavy.

The XD/XDm is pretty top bulky which is a main thing I'm not a fan of.

My vote - GP6. I really like this gun for a plastic 9mm.

And don't forget the GP5 which has a shorter barrel.
