That doesnt mean its superior it just means it is cost effective for them to do so.

Glock first started making pistols with thatTennfier FNC finish in what...1988? I'm sure FNC is even older than that.

I haven't seen any in-depth or even casual torture testing on FNC rifles. Admittedly, I haven't been looking. I'd be curious as to how long the finish lasts when compared to chrome slow fire, and sustained rapid fire, and how it holds up to heat stress tests will the surface crack under hot n heavy sustained fire. Do you have any sources addressing these issues?

The people who actually use the rifles and 9MM sidearms are pretty well satisfied with them.

I know a lot of Jeff Cooper type dinosaurs would like to go back to ancient weapons and calibers, but they're a small minority.

A lot of "Jeff Cooper dinosaurs" know more than you give them credit for. Stupid thing for you to say, show some respect. Nothing wrong with using today's polymer and still mixing in the 1911.

Quentin,

Nothing wrong with the 1911. I've owned half dozen or so. Still have one. A Clark built bullesye target gun.

But there's no way in hell I'll ever show any respect for Jeffie Cooper, because I don't have any. IMHO, the man wasn't just a dinosaur, but a racist, sexist and arrogant bigot as well.

Well, your comment pretty much reads like 'anyone who gets the senior citizen discount, or is close to it, is a POS and not worth heeding in any way, shape, or foirm'.

One nice thing about the First Amendment Ben, you're entitled to your opinion and I'm entitled to mine.
And BTW, I do get the senior discount. I'm 68 years old.
