I did like the OD ones they had before, it'd be my St. Pattys Day gun, but for now the Five Seven fits that role.
I'm with you, I like the OD's! :)

so everyone with a FDE FsN is a tactical fanboy? I'm not following your reasoning.

The Glock pistol, stock, performs quite well. The grip does not fit my hand well, as there is a big gap in my palm and an absence of weld. But, as always, overcome and conquer! (Or, I tried my best... :lmao: )

I started out as a serious 1911 platform nut. The Glock has replaced them for serious social wear, however. I morphed from full size to compact to mini, as I find them easier to carry.

One strange experience has recently come up that I cannot explain. I picked up a Gen 1 G17, cheap enough to buy, just because. I can blow the black out of a bull at 25 yards with my G26/27/30/35, but the full size G17 targets look like I used a shot gun with buck. It is like learning the pistol all over again. Not sure if the issue is due to the early configuration grip, or what, but it seems much more difficult to shoot well. It is a pleasant gun to shoot, but is frustrating and intriguing.

I never was a glock fan, but after getting a 3rd Gen G19 as part of a trade, I see some merits. Now actually looking for a few used/abused G17's, even willing to trade that G19. What parts, if any, are actually made of stainless steel? I know the Glock is supposed to be the AK of pistols, but unless you can eliminate rust, I don't see it being any more reliable than anything else.

So I was waiting and waiting for the Gen 4 g20 and or 29 to come out so I could get my first glock and first 10mm. I finally get sick of waiting and cop a g17 and less then 2 weeks later the Gen 4 10s are released... totally my luck. Looks like I will have to kick the hustle into overdrive so I can bring one of these home...

Regards the question of what parts are made of stainless steel: Maybe none. Not sure of the connector bar, but I was told that everything else was tennifer treated steel, which is pretty rust resistant in itself. If you put great huge gouges on the frame you will get some corrosion (rust), but it takes a bit of doing to get through the tennifer. By the way, the normal outside finish on the slide of the glock is not the tennifer, just another protective coating. Tennifer is basically similar to case hardening.

if you gouge the frame, you will not get any corrosion.

Well, if you have ever watched the now famous G-21 abuse series, you will see that the slide will corrode once you get through the tennifer. I guess my last post might have left you with the impression I was talking about the frame... my bad.

I blame it on writer's cramps, brain cramps, something like that.

Could have been butt cramps too.

Finally got my new ejector too, and the G19 is no longer sending brass to the face. But that was the only thing I did to it to help with it either. It was a bunch of little things.

Butt cramps must be acting up again

Yep butt cramps.

It wasn't the only "fix" I did to the G19. I originally switched out the extractor for a lone wolf one, it helped a little. Then polished the extractor plunger, it helped a little more. Then got the new ejector, and it helped a little more. With each fix I ended up with less brass to the face, and now it's running perfect.

I hate to admit it, but I guess I'm a Glock convert now. I have 2 Gen3 G17's. Just one question, though...

Why the difference? Waiting on Blue's expertise, but perhaps someone is quicker on the draw?
