My idea by posting this was to point out what is done in other countries. Some posters in here only seem to have read the title and spent most of the time looking at the pictures, since the weird assumption a Chinese airsoft pistol frame would be used would not only indicate the frame of an airsoft pistol is fully identical to the one of a live pistol (including the internal parts and the molded-in metal parts) would also mean these airsoft pistols could never be sold in the US since this then would be the receiver of a live firearm. Aside of this, reading the article would had answered the question anyway, since it clearly states:
These frames are produced in modern polymer moulding facilities in Pakistan’s Punjab province for arms manufacturers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Plus additionally:
Not only do these manufacturers have the standard white or un-coloured variant, tinted frames in colours such as blue, red, purple and yellow have also started to be churned by the moulding companies upon request of the manufacturers due to the popularity.
Finally, of course these are illegal copies and I assume Glock will take all possible actions to stop this. I did not post this as recommendation to buy illegal Glock pistols made in Pakistan, but to make collectors aware of these illegal copies as a unique variant to be remembered.

Here's an older article.

I very much doubt the Pakistanis went through the trouble of purchasing molds for glock frames or having them made. The cost for commercial grade molds for something as simple as plastic hangars runs into the 5 figure mark.

Notice how they're running ETS mags instead of locally sourced ETS clones. And mags are much easier to injection mold.

Much easier to source something illegal in your country from China and have them shipped over like certain giggle switches that the feds have been gathering back up around the country that were shipping in via Wish/AliExpress.

Your link quotes a video as source. The person who did the video was the person who wrote the article in the link I published. Even your article names the following potential sources for the frames:
The frames themselves are said to be made in China or in an injection-molding facility in Lahore, Pakistan, while the slides are CNC milled on site.
This information is mentioned by the original source in the original video. Since the same person wrote an article as well, I suppose he in the meantime found out where they originally source the frame from. This is why it is now, with more information, clearer.
