    I ran across this on another forum.The guy who owns this is in the Phillipines.So are Glocks now being manufactured here in the states?
    Sorry if this is old news.I did a search and it didn't turn up any results.The owner mentioned that the USA Glocks were cheaper in the Phillipines than the Austria Glocks.

    There are some that have leaked out. A guy in TX just bought one, and that LGS supposedly has one more.

    Can someone explain why. Seems silly we make something here to sell elsewhere and import the exact same product to sell here.

    Ok I copied a few thread posts

    (Walk Soft it's from the same forum as the pic you loaded from the guy from Philippines)

    I'd upload the pics but Taptalk is not letting me right now. Something about sever issues.

    I could be wrong, but id swear that the US polymer frame mold has a rougher surface texture than the Austrian frames we're all more accustomed to.
