Why ................ You have 1911 and Glocks with 1000's of after market companies with parts if they ever break or need servicing , plus they all kinds of better trigger or sights for them . When it come down to bottom feeders the 1911 and Glocks are the best .

To each his own, whatever trips your trigger......

I tolerate the plastic grip frames on my LCRs, or plastic grips; and a plastic rifle stock is good in awful weather, but that's it for me. No plastic pistols in my safe. Just call me a dinosaur.

This a tuff crowd to get people to tell me why they would like the new Walthers PPQ .45 over a 1911 or Glock .

You can replace the Glock plastic frame with a metal one and it also changes the grip angle to a 1911 angle and it uses all stock Glock parts and is a direct replacement and no mod to gun or parts .

Because I don't want to have to put a new trigger in it right out of the box. The stock PPQ trigger is way, way better than the trigger on any Glock. I don't doubt that your Glocks might be modified to have as good or nearly as good a trigger as my PPQ-45, but a gun that needs work to have a tolerable trigger---pass.

The PPQ -45 has a 5 lbs 9 oz trigger out of the box and Glock carry guns have a 5.5 lbs out of the box and Glock range models have a 4.5 lb trigger with the smooth trigger face . The 3.5 lbs Ghost disconnector and spring cost under $ 15 and takes less then 10 mins to change ., which is in all my Glocks . Move the slide backwards 3/8" to reset trigger . I would like to grip the PPQ 45 to see if I can shoot it DA . The Glock frames in 45 acp or 10MM are too large for me . Now the 9MM/ 40SW frames are the perfect size for me . That is why I shoot a 40 cal Glock .
