Has anyone put together a all metal Glock?

    You couldn't pay me to do that

    Well, maybe if you paid me a lot..then I'd get rid of it in favor of another regular one

    The stainless frame is interesting, If i could get it without the ugly billboard on the side.
    I like the idea of adding some weight to control recoil, and a rigid frame would probally solve the problems g22/23's have when lights are mounted to them.

    But as long as they have that goofy billboard, no way. Not at the premium prices they charge.

    if you want an alloy frame, buy something other than a glock.

    what's the point of spending $500 on a glock and then paying $300 for an aftermarket alloy frame that looks like crap?

    I think Robar sold something similar for a while. Shiny chrome metal glock frame. Weird.

    I'd imagine any of the benefits of polymer would be negated... frame flex/reduced recoil/enhanced reliability etc.

    I'm with FMJ. If I want an $800 metal service handgun, I'll buy a SIG, not a frankenglock

    Not to mention having to do two NICS checks to get it...if that sort of thing bothers you

    Why not just buy a Kahr? :)

    If anything, a polymer frame increases felt recoil because there's less weight to absorb the force.

    Why would you have to do two NICS checks? Buy the frame and an aftermarket barrel and slide (or even a Glock factory barrel and slide, I've seen new ones for sale separately) then hit up Midway or some place for the few internal parts that nobody but Glock makes and you've got a "Glock".

    I certainly agree with that statement, but why do looks matter? It's a Glock. If you want something sexy, buy (almost) anything but a Glock.

    When you are required to use a Glock & can get away with changing the receiver to better fit your hands. Buying the race frame & an upper will only require 1 NICS check. I talked to a deputy last week who put the alloy race frame on his Glock 22 (pre gen 4) to change the grip size & loves it. Now that the generation 4 is out with 3 sizes of backstraps I see less of a need to change the frame.

    aesthetics aside,

    you would also loose the benefits of polymer frame strength, which far surpasses that of alloy frames due to flexing dissipating the recoil energy.

    polymer frames reduce "felt" recoil by flexing, but the "actual" recoil is more because of the light weight.

    Glocks are supposed to be plastic, just buy a Sig insted if you want metal.

    Could do that as well I suppose. If you aren't using a Glock frame, may as well complete the package and use everything else aftermarket :p

    Still, you'd gain nothing but a conversation piece IMO. But for that reason alone, I guess I can't say I've never seen worse ideas

    If you get a metal frame you won't be able to take it on planes with you anymore.

    That's why Air Marshalls carry Glocks in .45 GAP, so they can go through the normal security checkpoints and no one will know that they are Air Marshalls and they want a big slow bullet so it won't be able to fly through a hijacker and pierce the airplane and make it fly out of the sky in a huge fireball or if they miss with half their shots none of them will be able to make it through the seat backs and then hit a passenger minding their own business or if there is no passenger it won't be able to do more than mildly dent the inner wall of the airplane so it won't go boomcrash because that's all .45 GAP could ever be good for other than giving normal 9mm and .40 framed Glocks a fat head.

    The point is to make a Glock more competitive ... if you shoot Glocks and like Glocks but your poly Glock is not beating the 1911 guys in IDPA/IPSC than the CCF Race Frame makes sense.

    Then you end up with either a "Crunch-n-ticker" (DA/SA) or an SAO ... so if you WANT a Glock type action and a competition gun that complements your EDC or duty gun than the CCF works.

    Furthermore, if you're a cop and your department demands you pack a Glock but you hate poly pistols, you can probably get away with a CCF.

    All that said I'd rather have a SIG or CZ, but hey, it takes all kinds.

    Sorry guys I just had to try to pack as much nonsense into a single run-on sentence as possible. I hope someone else laughed even half as hard as I did while writing it.

    Interesting. I'm not sophisticated enough to tell the difference, I suppose. :)
