There are really only 2 brands that arent always embroiled in flames wars, with lovers and haters of their respective brand slinging shit. Those are HK and FN. The only thing you hear about HK, is customer service. You hardly ever hear of or see weapon issues. Same with FN, they have 3 modern mainstream pistols out now, the FNP, FNX, And the FN45. People that own them never seem to have any complaints. I honestly believe that the issues people are and were having with the Gen 4 9mm Glocks, was due to useing the lightest, cheapest crap ammo available. The Gen 4 was designed to run with 124 Grain, 1200 FPS Nato ball and LEO +P rounds. I just bought one, droped some clp in it, loaded it up with Nato/+P ammo, and it ran like a damn top. I imagine if I were useing the weak dirty shit, I would have had a problem or two. For some this may be considered a failure, but im okay with it. I would much rather have a Glock that is designed and able to digest and operate on a steady diet of 9mm Nato/+P,and have to feed it quality 124 grain WInchester Nato Spec and full power Ball/hollowpoint, than one that is sprung low enough to run all the severly underpowered, light weight US/Russian bottom shelf branded product ammo that the ammo companies put out for the guy who will only buy the cheapest available. A gun sprung to that standard is gonna be beating itself to death if and when you decide to get serious and start useing Full power hot 9mm loaded to Europen/Nato Specs. Anyway, the Sigs are now all sold except for my Wife's 229 and my 239, both from 2002. They have been replaced with an HK, a Smith no lock 442,A Gen 4 Glock 19, and in a few days an FNX in 9mm when it comes in. As long as this post/these pictures keep on person from having to go through the bullshit I did with Sig, or keeps them from giving SIg any money for their junk, then Ill be happy with the results. Thanks for reading this thread. Oh, and before I leave, I would just like to say......
FUCK YOU SIG SAUER!
You pay alot more for HK's, but they are very consistent. My only complaint on them is spare parts and spare parts price, though they've gotten better in the last 2 years for spare parts availability. Glock is having some hiccups with the Gen 4 guns, but I'd trust any or their Gen 3 guns right now, and spare parts for Glocks are ridiculously cheap and available everywhere online.
