By your smart alec remark, I guess the Glock does not qualify as a "modern" gun as it was introduced a full 10 years before the "dinosaur" Colt 2000.
Striker fired pistols have the advantage of simpliticy. Fewer moving parts. Easier/cheaper to make.
Polymer is easier/cheaper to produce. Lighter in weight. When properly made, will last a lifetime.
