    Didn't even know these existed!!!:wow: Anyone know WHY they exist? From internet rumor mill, it has something to do with the tenifer coating.

    Its probally that Austria does not have a trade agreement with the country and the US does so they get tagged USA

    Actually, the guns are Made in USA. Or at least, assembled here. The whole Made/Assembled in USA is a grey area. Harley-Davidson motorcylces have to have a certain percentage of their parts made here in order to claim Made in USA.

    LOL...reading my mind! Just to "be different" and be able to say "I have a Glock Made in USA". That would be pretty cool. Imagine the arguments and bets you could win with a US-made Glock!! :rofl:

    There's always the economics. The U.S. is probably the largest gun market with a steady demand year in, year out. Also, 'Made in USA' vs importing eliminates a number of ATF gun importation rules and regulations. And politically, the U.S. is very gun-friendly. Finally, the U.S. dollar is pretty weak (but stable), so it's more economical (ie: more profitable via foreign exchange rates) to make guns here and import them to Europe and the rest of the world.

    Looks like USA version has non-dip extractor, or was that added later?

    X2!!!! Count me in for one!!! :thumbsup:

    If the USA-made ones become more readily available, I wonder if there will be a premium on them? Beretta is in that situation with their 92. More pople want US-made ones than Italian ones. Of course, the US-made Berettas also seem to be of higher quality.

    Thought we decided last month that a byproduct of the tennifer treatment (arsenic) made it prohibitive to make the guns here for the US market. All go through the Tennifer treatment in Austria.

    Or was that just a dream?

    May have been a dream.:supergrin:
    It's not arsenic, it's cyanide that is the offending item. Interestingly, S&W uses Melonite, which is the same as tenifer, on their guns. Must be a different process that doesn't involve cyanide.

    Here's some good info on tenifer...

    I'd happily own one. Might have to pick up one, if I can find one, to keep the imports under control. :D
