Spose it means that Glocks patents have run out?

Who knows about patents? How long are they good for?



:patriot:

It all depends on how long you get them for.. the most common ones are 20 years.. but for large businesses such as Glock I'm almost positive they have a chance to renew it. But, I don't believe that this would be an infringement on a patent but rather an upgrade for a pistol.

why would you expect more recoil from a heavier pistol. In most cases a heavier gun will provide less recoil due to absorbing the forces of the shot.
Even though my HK USP45f was purpose built for the new hotter 45 ACP +P loads my two full size 1911s handle the recoil of the SXT 230 grain +Ps better due to the 10 or so ounces of extra weight. Also due to the excellent design of the 1911. Still the idea of a metal framed Glock or USP does not appeal to me. With standard pressure loads the HK is pretty soft shooting.

Weight would take some of it but the polymer frame is what absorbs a lot of the recoil by it's flexing and all.

Still like others have said, it's a waste of money to me.

glock has to be pissed about this gun. It looks like a complete glock copy. Yet, robar is acting like its a new gun. Its the same thing that makes me kinda mad when I pick up a new magazine and see the 35 pages dedicated to 1911 pistols. seriously, they are all the similar thing. different sights, a few custom options, etc..

Shh you'll stir up the 1911 aficionado's who think minor differences between stock models means "custom".

I get that the 1911 is a great operating system. Learned that like 65 million times. Its been around since 1910. I think that everyone knows its great. Time to put that baby to bed.

Shot all-steel Glock in IPSC open for 2 years in that configuration. The CCF frame is a tighter fit to the Glock slide. Overall felt recoil is reduced (even without the ported barrel :supergrin:). I spent a lot of time running both polymer and steel frames with the same internals. I found the both stock and performance trigger configurations were crisper than with the polymer frame. Weight the biggest issue, the SS frame will make this Glock weigh closer to a 1911 all-steel gun.

You need to fit the barrel if you do it yourself, it's definitely not a drop and go situation.

Why put to bed what works and works well?


Anyway, to get back on topic. I don't really see the point either...:dunno:

Not worth 1445.00 dollars the price I saw one listed for.
