    Well I guess I was wrong, and Glock isn't the one making them. They're after market!

    yep lone wolf is going to put them out a alloy frame ...

    But one thing if ya change the frame is it really still a glock? i mean your doing away with one of the things that makes it a glock ..


    The interchangeable backstraps look pretty cool if ya had the big 10 or a 45 you could get it to fit your hand for sure now

    I bet the 1911 grip angle would help a lot too...

    While Glock continues to sit on it's ..... and not offer any new products.

    But you know what, I have doubts as to how successful this new frame is going to be. I'm with Bud - if you change the frame it ain't a Glock no more - oh no - it's a hybrid! That's bad isn't it?

    Part of me likes the idea but - I'd be looking to inspect closely and shoot a converted gun a lot, before thinking of buying.

    What am I saying - I haven't even got a Glock yet!

    OK ~ That Is Neat!

    In Titanium ~ Minus The Finger Grooves ~ & with a 1911 Grip Angle.

    I'm SOLD.

    Since they are making it out of metal & not polymer ~ too bad they could not thin out the overly thick looking trigger guard a bit but, that would result in too many holster fitting problems...I guess.

    i dont much care for the glock grip angle so i like the concept....a lot. that said, i initially bought my glock primarily for the legendary glock reliability. i just dont wanna tinker with what works every time.

    WELL, I do remember reading that the FLEX of the polymer GLOCK frame that takes place during shooting was intentional & part of the Glock operating system.

    I have absolutely No Idea if that is Total BS or not.

    Sounds like BS to me but, I sure could be wrong about that.

    I ALSO read (at one point in time) that the flex of the plastic recoil spring guide rod was intentional to 100% reliable GLOCK operation & that sure turned out to be BS because plenty of GLOCK firearms are still 100% reliable with a stiff aftermarket metal guide rod or a LaserMax installed.

    Just thought I would add that information to help spur on the debate.

    Cool Addition:

    I hate to mention this but, the die hard Glock~A~Holics will pretty much say & present anything as "known fact" that continues the myth that Glocks are The Perfect Ultimate 100% reliable firearm "right out of the box" & NOTHING should ever be changed or altered.
    God Forbid...nothing should ever be done that changes an original design of Lord Gaston Glock.
    It makes it difficult sometimes to sort Glock Fact From Glock Fiction.

    have you noticed how many manufactures have started making 1911 models. sooner or later Glock will make one also, then I can own a glock.

    myth whaddya mean myth?

    gaston glock didnt design the glock. he hired the finest weapon engineers in the world to design the glock. he may have worked with them and added input, but he cant lay claim to the design in the same way that john browning can lay claim to the 1911.

    id be glad to simplify it in one simple statement. a glock will fire every time.

    i agree. this is one of the biggest reasons i purposefully avoided glock for so many years. i dont buy into hype and dismissed everything i had heard as such. i now know that glocks reputation was well earned.

    try one (not limited to you bud, i mean collectively), you might be surprised.....i sure was. i dont like the grip angle, and i definately prefer a crisp 1911 trigger pull, but i love knowing i can totally depend on a weapon. in my entire life ive owned very few automatics that didnt suffer some form of break-in failure. be it failure to feed, fire, eject, or lock the slide back most all have had at least a slight hiccup during the first couple hundred rounds......not my two glocks. well over 1000 rounds in each without cleaning, not even a hint of a hiccup. my hk usp has also performed flawlessly. my 1911s have all been flawless after a couple hundred rounds. my TRP doesnt always lock the slide back, but im told that a medium grade weapon is "tighter" and requires a little more breakin. these issues are minor, but the glocks dont have them. if this ever changes ill post an update, but i dont expect it.
