I was wondering if anyone knew how many MIM parts are in Glocks?
Or even more, I would like to know is where said MIM parts sourced?

I'm not dissing MIM, because for what I am designing it is the best solution.
I am sourcing out vendors for some MIM parts and one of the vendor reps said some things I just couldn't believe. I don't know if he didn't know bunk about Glocks or was trying to dis other suppliers.

Thanks for any info!

The locking block looks like a possible candidate.
MIM is usually reserved for very, very tiny parts, that's where the advantage lies. I think the locking block is larger than necessary for the MIM process. But I've been wrong before. I wonder if someone close to Glock could find this info for us.:eyebrow:

There is nothing unusual at all about making locking block sized parts with MIM. You will find MIM parts a heck of a lot bigger than a locking block in your car.

MIM is perfectly accecptable for parts that do not receive a lot of abuse.

Kimber uses MIM and they are considered a good gun.

Sig uses MIM

Taurus uses MIM there guns are much better then they use to be.

I am perfectly comfortable with MIM parts in a gun. It is a QA issue to not have parts that are faulty.

I know who the supplier is for at least some of the MIM parts in SIG's. I have talked to their rep and his sample set was very impressive.

The question for me is: Is the supplier for the Glock MIM parts in Austria, in the US or elsewhere? ...
