I see that it it plastic. Is it durable? I am desiding between a Glock 17 or a Beretta 92fs. Can you point me one way or the other?

The trigger shoe is the plastic part, the rest, metal(trigger bar)
No worries, it won't break, keep it stock and buy gun food.

Having shot both, Ill let my friend keep his Beretta, and Ill still let him shoot my 17.

As for the trigger being durable, have you seen any of the torture tests done to a GLOCK???? GLOCK takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

ETA: With the GLOCK it either fits your hand well or it doesnt. Take into consideration the grip, feel, and natural aim with both pistols, and decide which one is more natural for you.

I own both.

I grew up on the Berreta 92 platform and I learned how to shoot with it. It fits the best in my hand and i'm most accurate, I've shot over 14k rounds with it and never once did I ever have any sort of malfunction with it. It'll serve you well and theres a reason why its deployed by L.E. Officers and our military as well.


Having said that, my glock is my SHTF pistol, and its the Glock that is by my bedside, not my Berreta.

I have never, ever seen a broken glock trigger. It's hard to imagine how force could be exerted to break it short of gross negligence on the user's part.

glock's trigger is great even if it's mostly plastic.

of course beretta and glock have a very different trigger pull since one is duble action and one isn't. I prefer single action pistol....beretta trigger pull is too long for me.

They had original Glock 17s at the Glock factory in Austria with over 300,000 rounds on them decades ago, ya really think the trigger is a problem on 'em.....,

Note: last I heard of these pistols they were still shooting them even though the polygonal rifling had long since vanished from the barrels, (but this was a long time ago).

I had a Beretta 92F and a GLOCK 19. Sold the Beretta, carry the GLOCK every day.
