But let's face it, the contract you speak of is just as much about protectionism as it is about quality factory parts. There are literally thousands of parts made for Glocks by other manufacturers that work just fine. And there some pretty crappy ones as well. Do a lot of reading before you buy. BTW, Glocks are easy to work on. You don't need a Glock certified armorer unless your gun has a malfunction issue. Most qualified smiths can drop in Glock parts. If you polish stuff like I did, the warranty will no longer cover a malfunction. A risk I am more than willing to take.
The short answer is yes. Just wanted to compare notes.
