    Decent looking gun. We will have to see how it performs. But, a Glock killer???? Nope. How many times have we heard that and they are still here.

    PSA has been extremely innovative in producing copies of firearms platforms at a reduced cost. They started with ARs, went to AKs, did a very interesting version of the AK-V that is now bombproof and takes Scorpion mags, supposedly have a MP-5 clone in development, and now this.

    I have no doubt that EVENTUALLY it will be an extremely reliable and affordable Glock platform clone. It usually takes a couple of iterations before that happens. Luckily they have a lifetime warranty.

    For the price it may be worth a try.

    More like P80, Brownells, Wolf killer
    Will also upset the other Glock emulators like Canik, Beretta, CZ, Taurus., Springfield, Honor Defense, SCCY.

    The more crowded the field, the more the competition, the more the price cutting margins-- how much innovation can there be for the lowest cost??

    It's attractive for a polymer pistol, but the Gen 3 thing sucks for those that like a reversible mag release.

    I see these eventually being offered in blowout combos with rifles they need to move.

    It's the same amount of "Glock Killer" as every one of those kind of things that has been released in the last couple years.
    When it's used on something that isn't a Glock, like an M&P 2.0 compact or a CZ P10C, it means people who don't want a Glock 19 can have something very comparable to be happy with.
    When applied to a Glock Copycat, it means nothing. It's like saying the Tanfoglio Witness steel frame is a CZ 75 killer.

    The Century is a Saiga killer
    The Taurus PT92 is a Beretta M9 killer.
    The Rock Island 1911 is a Colt killer.
    The Ruger LCP is a Keltech killer.
    The Swatch is a Rolex killer too!
    Mozilla is a Chrome killer.

    Nah.

    Looks like a crossbreed of Polymer 80 and M&P.
    Glock killer? Probably not. But if gun works reliably like a Glock, we get one more low-budget option in the crowded 9mm high capacity pistol market.

    Cons: if you’re blue label, it isn’t much savings when you add in your LGS fees.

    Pros: if they stick a dam accessory rail on their 26 sized one I’ll be tempted.

    When you add in $20 for shipping, $20 for a transfer and potentially sales tax for the states that collect it, it's competing in the M&P territory, except nobody knows anything about a Palmetto handgun. A lot of those plastic Turkish handguns also compete at this price point. I wonder how deeply PSA will discount them during sales. With free shipping, $299 is pretty attractive, but get the price below the $300 price point on sale and I think they will sell really well.

    This one is true, though, at least of the P3AT.

    It can't be a Glock killer if it uses Glock mags.
