Would you buy a Glock if it were all metal?

    I was thinking about this last night. If Glock offered a handgun that was the same design and dimensions but all metal (with perhaps some sort of rubber or plastic grips) I think I would buy one or at least try one out.

    Not if it weighed as much as I think it would have to. In all-metal I'd rather have a Sig.

    Well, seeing how THE PRIME ATTRACTION OF THE GLOCK PISTOL IS ITS LIGHT WEIGHT, GLOCK WILL NEVER PRODUCE A PISTOL THAT WEIGHS TOO MUCH. POLYMER FRAMES ARE HERE TO STAY. GLOCK WILL NEVER PRODUCE AN ALL-STEEL HANDGUN.

    I would just carry another polymer at that point. If polymer were not an option, I'd carry a 1911. Heck, the weight of a fully loaded 1911 is the only thing holding me back from carrying a 1911. Maybe I should just find a nice, lightweight 1911...

    I'd never buy it or carry it or think about it. I like plastic guns because of the weight and will probably never own a metal framed gun again. Honestly I don't get the 1911 crowd. I'll agree they are sexy, but 40oz/ 8rds/ big $$$/ I don't see the appeal there.

    No. I carried a 1911 for 20 years and was tired of the weight. I would have bought another polymer pistol if Glock wasn't around.

    No. The weight is too much. I have a M9 & 1911 if I wanted that but I carry a glock.

    Weight is a major benefit of the Glock. To get close to that with a metal gun, you'd have to use a lot of aluminum and I trust plastic a lot more than aluminum.

    I'm with everyone else in this thread. No......it would be too heavy.

    When I bought my 10mm the two choices in my price range were the Glock 20 and EAA Witness. I went with the Glock mainly because of the weight difference between the two guns. So I would have to say no I wouldn't buy an all metal Glock.

    It appears as if CCF isn't doing all that well with a metal receiver,that or their just isn't much demand for them at all. SJ 40

    What I like best about glock is the time it takes to clean the weapon after shooting. If it was all metal, it would still have to have the ease of cleaning to want me to move to a metal gun.

    I'd probably buy one because I love every Glock I've ever laid my hands on :supergrin:. The weight wouldn't be a big deal for range or HD use. I'd rather see a single stack slim 9 over an all metal frame but I'd buy either...

    I would guess that Glock would loose more than a bit of its price advantage if it was all metal.

    No.

    I'd get something else instead.
