Glock Perfection shrugs off slide impact like water off a ducks back!

In actual fact, and do not tell anyone else.

It is controlled by the MPPF (Magic Plastic Perfection Fairy) they put inside every Glock that you can't see or chase away.
That gold colored grease in the frame rails on a new Glock is actually MPPF dust. :D


Seriously, there is a steel locking block pinned in the plastic frame.

The barrel locking cam impacts it when the barrel cams up into full lock with the slide running foreword.

The slide impacting the plastic frame stops it's rearward travel.

It is said the flex in the plastic when the slide hits it softens recoil because there is no metal to metal contact like on other pistols.

Kinda blows a hole in the notion that a slide can destroy a steel frame, don't it?
