You're not making it easy for me.
I have a rtf2 17. Love it.
Late 80's Gen2 19 in the classic Sport Combat Holster.
Wonder when the Gen 10 comes out will the Gen 5's be legal in Cali then?
I think the ammo makes as much difference as the caliber. I don't follow like I did years back, do they still make Magsafe and similar ammo? I never see it here and just use Hornaday defence rounds.
Good. MARSOC and all the other guys in SOCOM can buy them up. Let me get those Milsurp P226s thank you.
You guys should totally start buying polymer guns and get rid of your trash metal frames. Save those ounces for a substantially weaker frame!
Pays $1400 for a pistol that only holds 9 rounds.
The only thing I really like about Gen4 (and beyond) over Gen3 is the feel of the mag release. If I get another striker-fired polymer handgun it'll probably be a Springfield or SW M&P.
uhhh... I am weak. No resistance after I saw it really.
Pic requests welcome. It's sweeeet!
No it isn't. I own both. Fight me.
Standard 1911 and a 14 round 1911. Bring it.
The only modification I will consistently make to my Glock frames is this one:
The undercut. I have somewhat fat fingers and if I shoot more than about 50-60 rounds out a Glock in one trip I chew the shit out of my middle finger.
I'd like a Gen 3 19 that I could mount a Vortex Viper on and has front serrations. Nothing ridiculous but something akin to this:
Looks like a glock
i had one bit man i couldn't shoot it worth a shit. I'm usually a pretty good shot but something about that gun just didn't work for me
Looks TOTALLY different.
No finger grooves and beveled slide at the muzzle makes it look like a work of art!
Next to my carry gen4:
Will likely get Warren tac sights, buttplug and hi-dollah bicycle innertube for it too.
9 and 45 are by far my favorite pistol rounds. Butter smooth. I used to work at a gunshop so I've shot almost everything.
They're just as reliable. Steel frame have a much smoother feel to them though, I'll give you that. I'm a fan of CZs but polymer frames are combat tested and can go through hell. Here's the px4 storm torture test. I will never shoot a 40 cal polymer though. Those feel absolutely disgusting.
Ugh. What're you a dinosaur. Get with the times old timer.
How much did you pay for those overpriced relics from the dark ages?
Your turn curator of ancient weapons.
My Springer 1911 was a 21st bday gift from my dad. Retailed at the time I received it for like $650. Has WWII style sights on it.
The Para 14.45 was $1200. Came with a threaded barrel, 2 mags, and suppressor sights. Love both guns.
ALL THAT SAID, if SHTF and I actually had to use my plate carrier and gear setup my Glock 23 with 9mm conversion and G19 mags are what I am taking not the 1911s.
AND OLD TIMER?! I'm not even 30 yet.
Also, outside of my Springer not liking certain types of hollow points (looking at you Winchester white box hollow points) I've never had a reliability issue with either of them.
Actually, my Para runs like a goddamn tank. Dropped it breech open into a fucking mud puddle, pulled it out and made sure nothing was obstructed and it ran like a champ.
Looks like the Glock's older, less attractive uncle.
