Matt is good people, had a ton of real world military experience and had a curious view on life that was fun to see pop up in threads. He hit a rough patch with his job and stuff, so he stepped down and left the forum for awhile. I hope he finds his way back someday because he was HIGHLY quotable and always good for a funny comment when things got out of hand.

I saw that today this morning in a magazine at the ga station and had to look. I not so sure I like the idea of a polymer 1911. Doesn't seem right, but I did read in the article that several other manufacturers have tried and failed at making a polymer 1911.

if your going to tote around any handgun with the idea you MAY need to use it as a club, do yourself a favor and be sure you have a force multiplier on the main spring housing.

If your looking for a poly framed 1911 well I'm not sure. But if you're looking for a poly framed perfected .45 acp, come see me. Signed Gaston

when the Glock has been around for over 100 years and copied like the 1911, then we can discuss perfection. compared to the 1911, the Glock is still a new kid on the block.

don't get me wrong, the Glock is good design and a reliable pistol, but it just doesn't give a person the same warm fuzzies like a 1911 does. BTW, i have shot many Glocks over the years, and if one comes along at the right price i would buy it, and right now my polymer gun is a XDm40.

didn't want you to think i was a Glock hater and some 1911 fanboy!

Meh.

Is this the same Gaston that had NO intention of selling his wonder invention to the consumer/civilian public?

Because last I checked, you wanted to sell to the military exclusively and then "lowered" the standard to LEO.

When that failed to produce the sales quota you needed to offset the R&D, well, you "lowered" the bar again to us lowly civilians.

I have nothing against the design. It works. And anyone can shoot it, although I would rather not rely on them to protect my 6. :roll eyes:

Having said that the design is a solid one.

But if you are going to produce a "superior" design, then it should be available to EVERYONE EQUALLY.

i forgot about that Dillinger. that the Glock was originally intended for the military, then LEO, when that didn't pan out, then they went with civilian sales.

as far as i know, the 1911 was always available to everyone.

That's pretty interesting. I didn't know that glock was originally intended for military only.

That's why I love this forum, so many people with some much knowledge in one place one is bound to learn new stuff.
