What's your preference for handgun frame material?

Paper or plastic? Actually, I prefer stainless for some things and tupperware for other applications.

Auto:

Stainless or blued steel with maybe some polymer components.

Think Beretta 92FS or a nice 1911.

I'll make some exceptions for mostly polymer guns, but it has to be something exceptionally comfortable to me.


Revolver:

No question. Stainless or blued steel with wood or rubber grips.

Of course, I just bought an Airweight J frame with rubber grips, but that's beside the point

I like both.

For EDC a lightweight polymer frame is nice.

For sheer awesomeness and aesthetic beauty, nothing beats an all-steel 1911.

Steel

Science is awesome.
So awesome that it found the perfect material many years ago!

While I prefer the weight and reliability of Glocks, I keep telling myself my next auto HAS to be all metal. Ain't worked yet though.

Steel or alloy. Sold off my plastic...er... 'polymer' handguns sometime ago.

CZ PCR & P-01. Alloy Frames.

I love polymer.

Does not really matter to me. I have all three. What it is made of rarely comes into my mind.

But most of my handguns are plastic framed now that I think about it.
