    Nicer looks, all stainless steel components, Metal sights vs polymer etc.

    Heck, Maybe Glock will end up cloning the PSA-9 dagger.

    I would definitely have a wait and see attitude about the PSA PS9 Dagger. Give it some time to get out into the marketplace and then see what the real world feedback is like.

    In other words I'm in no hurry to get one.

    I have a RIA 9mm 1911---100% reliable and accurate---no interest in a PSA or a Glock.

    Well... at least it's not Glock ugly.

    There are two things that keep me from buying a Glock:

    - I think they're ugly as sin.
    - I don't like the absence of a manual safety.

    And yes, that's my order of precedence. With all the choices out there, I see absolutely no reason why I should own an ugly gun, regardless of how well it may function.

    I could see myself getting one of these.

    Nope. I'll stick with my CZs
    But with that said, you can buy the real deal, used, for slightly more.

    It literally takes Glock (or Glock compatible aftermarket) parts. The world is your oyster when it comes to spare parts.

    Way too far forward to be a locking block pin on a glock parts "compatible" gun.

    Should be Joe Dirt

    Two reasons I don't own a Block. Their looks and their Fanboys, both get under my skin. I'd buy a PSA-9 just because they look a lot better than a Block and I could show it off while at the range.

    The Dagger. I even like the name. Seems to have a little symbolism in it. Like a Dagger deep into the Heart. I have always been on the fence with a Glock. But this is a, and hate to say the words "A Game Changer".

    I would agree with Robbins 290. The gen 3 has two pins in that area, one for the block, the other for the trigger. But this frame looks shallower so the have it pined different.

    I literally just bought a Gen 5 G19 MOS. It’s taken me a long time to take the plunge, the Gen 5 finally hooked me in. Regrets? None.

    I would also give the PSA a chance...after everyone else has put it through the wringer. I bet they don’t stay at $300 if they are worth a darn though. Any bets?

    Your right, should've looked at mine. Have to wait and see when it comes out.

    There is nothing wrong with finding a firearm unattractive and saying so. I think hipoints are pretty ugly but are fun to shoot.

    G19 without the grip divot that cuts me open? Maybe. At $300 and change... stronger chance but still a maybe. There is too much promise in revolvers right now. And honestly for what I do, more guns are just more toys now, so I’m more focused on getting stuff for my kids or getting more cool old stuff.

    But with out seeing it. That woyld be my guess. Maybe the locking block patent is active and they had to redesign it and needed another pin. I dont think there would be anything in that spot be sides some kind of block retainer.

    makes me curious to see what parts are compatible. And until i find out if the pile of parts i have for the gen 3 will work in the dagger, its not one my want list. If they are, i will be oj board.

    Instead of the hole for the pin being in the back of the locking block maybe it's in the front and just a different shape. Don't see any other reason for the pin but who knows.Doesn't matter.

    yes, but if you don't want a glock, as parts wear, you will have one in the end. Now, if you want a starting point for upgrades, great.
