Dont flame me Glock fans!
1911's have their place. They are fine weapons. But please, just because a gun is made out of metal vs polymer, does not mean the polymer gun is less likely to last. I doubt any
1911 could sustain the torture test this Glock 21 was put through and still work. Right now, my 1911 is at Springfield after 250 rounds. All three of my Glocks have about 5000 rounds each on them and have never had anything done to them except cleaning.
