    Some might not agree but I'm personally convinced that HK makes the best polymer pistol period. (Don't bother trying to convince me otherwise as I'm convinced and dead set on that.)

    So, who makes the second best polymer pistol to HK?

    I still say Glock is king second to HK.

    How about you? If you feel like typing, include why you feel the way you do.

    You are right. Some might not agree.

    M&P, Glock or maybe FNH for #2

    If you really believe Glock is better then H&K (and we aren't talking price) then you might want to lay off the koolaid.

    In my opinion HK is in a weird class of its own... No one else makes a plastic gun that high quality. The FNP 45 tactical just might be up there, but in my opinion, it is the standout in the FN lineup with all their other models falling behind Glock in quality.

    So excluding the FNP 45 tactical, I agree with the OP. Glock makes the best plastics south of HK.

    All I know for certain is that HK is overpriced. Their pistols aren't any better than most polymers.

    Sure, $900 for a Lorcin trigger!! :rofl:


    IMO, the Walther PPQ is a better gun than the H&K P30.

    Don't want to get into what's better than what, but Steyr build one hell of solid polymer pistol.

    I agree on the USP's plastic part is no better than Glock. But I do like how smooth the slide action in my USP. And I think the mag release was very well designed.

    And as to the overpriced comment, it's worth whatever you willing to pay for. Some believe Glock was over price.

    The only FN I have tried is the FNP 40 I own. It is in no way inferior to any of the 7 Glocks I own or the 4 I no longer have.

    Nobody makes a better plastic 2 liter bottle than Coke. Although, Pepsi makes a close second.

    I say HK,Steyr,M&P,XD(m) series,Glock,FN and then the Ruger SR9c. BUT IMO there is very little difference among them as far as how much better id rate one over another...as a matter of fact in my book Steyr and HK are at a tie for #1

    There is no clear cut 2nd place, in my opinion. However, I do agree that HK is the best.
