looks pretty cool, but at the same time completely unecessary.

CRAP! Just buy another gun why don't you. My plastic doesn't rust. No need for metal there.

From what I understand the market study showed that a lot of people wanted a metal receiver and more of a "1911" style grip. The only thing that I can see that would kill-it is what the finial cost will be? (or if Glock releases a 4th gen frame with interchangeable back straps)

Solution looking for a problem.

Glock's polymer frame is only looking for one thing: The ability to change the grip. I want to be able to install a screw-on hogue rubber finger groove grip. That would be the Ultimate! (I don't like the slip-on because if it gets wet it doesn't feel as secure to me).

I don't see how it's a bad thing. If it makes the grip more comfortable for certain shooters than it's a good thing right? It might not be the best thing for you but it certainly isn't a bad thing

It would certainly increase felt recoil. Polymer frame guns absorb much more recoil than any metal frame.

I would imagine the increase in recoil would minimal at best.

The gov't would be contemplating banning assault muskets that can accurately shoot things at ranges over 50 yards and had a tremendous rate of fire, at over 720 rounds per day...

I saw it in my catalog last week and thought it was pretty cool.

I'll agree that it is not something that I need but I would like to get one, find a top end on the EE and give it go. What the heck, I love tinkering and trying new things.

Does anyone know the price?

why is it a solution waiting for a problem? its actually a pretty good idea. I know a few people who like the glock for the reliable reputaion it has aquired but don't like the grip, etc. it would be a softer shooting gun, because of the added mass of the metal frame. more mass=more inertia. same amount of recoil dissapated through a different amount of mass.

good idea...yes
would I buy one...no, I like my G19 the way it is for now



now you hardcore glockaholics out there can flame me if you like

Hmmm...... My Grock hasn't rusted yet...and the ergonomics are pretty good to and I think the recoil is fine....... metal replacement frame for an advanced polymer frame? I don't get it

Has anyone been able to find any contact info on the manufacturer? I have tried typing in my browsers and nothing close to Glock frames come up. I am trying to contact the company personally.
