    Striker-fired non-polymer pistol

    Do any manufactures make a striker-fired, non-polymer (metal alloy) pistol? Besides the Kahr T, K and MK series, I can't think of any. Is there a reason that nearly all striker-fired pistols are polymer?

    I was going to say Rohrbough, since I'm pretty sure they're all metal, but then I got to thinking; I'm pretty sure that they are flush-hammer, not striker.

    I think most are polymer just because that is what a lot of modern pistol frames are made out of and it is popular for weight and cost savings. There is no reason they have to be polymer and if you look at a lot of the early-ish pistol designs there are plenty that are striker fired such as the Colt 1908, Fn1900 FN 1910, Ortgies, Po8 Luger, and even the old Borchardt C-93, one of the very first auto-pistols. Long arms have been using strikers even longer.

    edit: Forgot to mention, the original Browning design for the Hi-Power, before the changes by Saive, was striker fired as well.
