    What is the purpose of having a heavier Glock?

    Ultimate range tool.....plus it has many upgrades over the current design. Glock should really take note and make some of the same changes to keep pace with what people are wanting.

    :) The website, pretty much, says it all. I plan on getting a stainless steel frame as soon as they're available for the G-21.

    Well, I'll be damned.... I've been comming on here for a while now and haven't seen anythign about it. My bad.

    Titanium, that should be similar in weight but a whole lot stronger.

    Wow! This opens a whole new train of thought with these additional frame options. How about a Titanium frame 21? Man that would be a hoot! Guess I will be watching their site for that!

    :) This has been posted before; but, for those who'd like to know: The discernable advantages of the new metal Glock frames over the original polymer frames are as follows:

    (1) Two interchangeable backstraps; one provides an exact 1911 grip angle

    (2) Higher cut beavertail and front strap permit a handgrip that is closer to bore axis

    (3) Longer, thicker, and stronger slide rails offer increased durability and reliability

    (4) Stronger frame integrity with enhanced frontstrap and backstrap checkering

    (5) Finger memory grooves have been eliminated

    (6) Rounded and more open traditional triggerguard accommodates gloved hands while eliminating trigger pinch points

    (7) Zero frame flex results in a significantly cleaner, crisper, trigger pull with no, ‘rough spots’

    (8) Increased frame weight(s) greatly improves recoil control. Weight increases are,

    aluminum = 7.3 oz
    titanium = 12 oz
    stainless steel = 21 oz

    (9) More robust 1913 Picatinny rail system

    (10) Beveled mouth on magazine well

    (11) Interior frame magazine walls are perfectly straight and correctly tapered – Not, ‘bottle shaped’ as is common with polymer frames. (‘Bottle shaped magazine frame walls are characteristic of polymer when it cools after being ejection molded.)

    (12) Fully loaded new Glock magazines drop free

    (13) The metal frame enhances and tolerates occasional weapon strikes

    (14) An optional (Cominolli) thumb safety is available.

    Then it would not be a Glock.

    Game gun for Glock lovers.

    Think USPSA Open Glock. Add a Lone Wolf extended slide, barrel with comp, optics, and you have a nice race gun for about half the price of a custom 1911.

    Something like the gun in this thread that is heavier and soaks up recoil better:

    Jager Comp - soon to be released. I designed it for USPSA Open Division, and with the CFF Race frame it is comparable to my STI, shoots soft AND flat. I will post more info and pictures about this in about a week. Should have them on the shelf in about 3 weeks. This frame and hopefully my comp will give the S_I's a run for the money in Open Division.

    If you have to ask why someone would want a heavier frame for a polymer pistol, then you need to research the issue from a pistol competition stand point.

    From what I have heard, adding the extra weight brings a Glock 35, into the same weight class of a S_I pistol.

    Also, something to mention, is there is reportedly much less frame flex, which results in a much smoother and consistent trigger pull.

    If you are a Glock purist (makes me sick), or one who believes any change to a Glock is worthless or causes the pistol to become unrelible, this is not for you!

    Yes, you are right, it's not for me. My G35 is fine just the way it is. Leave the titanium guns for the :aodnsb: crowd.......

    I don't know how well the other guys shoot, but I can shoot well enough to protect my family. ;)
