I want to buy a GEN3 GLOCK17. But some people say that it was a plastic gun. After many years, the plastic will crack.

Can't even think how to respond to this. Google "Glock 17 reviews" if you are serious and educate yourself.

I'm sure the polymer frames on my Glocks will eventually crack. By then, however, my bones will be dust, so I won't care.

Don't listen to those people. They are ignorant (or just plain stupid--you pick). Buy your glock with confidence. If those people only own hunting rifles, they are woefully misinformed (or Fudds).

You live in Kalifornia. The brown suits will have searched your house, confiscated your Glock and placed you in a re-education camp long before it gets old enough to crack.

I have all of mine dipped in the fires of Mount Doom...figuratively. But no, it's plastic and is probably not under a lot of stress being the 'lower'. The slide and barrel are hardened Adamantium or something proprietary that Glock makes a deal with the Debbil to acquire.

Well let's see. There is a Glock 17 that has been fired over 1 million times. Of course some parts have had to be replaced, as one might expect, such as guide rods and return springs, trigger springs and.... perhaps that's about it. The gun still functions.

The simplicity of the Glock is its strength. Go ahead and buy the gen3 G17 you've been considering with confidence. Unless something is wrong from the get go, it will serve you very well.

Whoever these some people are you got that information from, run away fast from them and never ever take any advice from them about any firearms ever again, because they are uninformed idiots, and you don't want to end up like them. It's lucky you dropped in here when you did.

I've heard of problems with the earlier model 40S&W guns cracking frames after thousands of rounds, but not a 17. Don't sweat the hype.

I waited 25 years expecting them to crack, melt down, or just disappear. None of that happened so I bought a couple of them for myself. So far so good.:biggrin2:
