Both are very fine choices, and both should serve you well. That being said, I would go for the Colt.

The Colt is already in the store, no wait necessary. The Colt will also hold it's value better than the Springfield will. While the Colt and Springfield are close in price and features, Colt uses better parts to build their guns. Colt uses more hand fitting during their assembly process than most other mass producers, which usually results in more accurate and better functioning pistols.

The only issue I ever hear about with XSE's is that sometimes the rear sights come loose. That can easily be solved with a little loctite on the rear sight screw before you go out and shoot it. You hear of a lot more problems with Springers, though Springfield has great customer service and will usually fix any and all problems on their dime.
