    ehh idc i'll still shoot better with a run-of-the-mill 1911 than the best Glock. I'm not trying to make up excuses for why 1911s are better. If you go back far enough in these posts, you'll see that someone bashed 1911s, and half the time it's people who have never used one in their life.

    if 1911s are so bad like you say, how come every gun that comes out on the market is always being compared to a 1911?

    even a CZ-75 has a better trigger than a Glock.

    By the way, the Glock is built crappy, explodes because of that unsupported chamber, and is ugly. And that little lever isn't a safety.

    That must be why I put 7 rounds into the 10 spot with my buddy's bone stock 1991A1 and hit 6 of 10 shots with a Glock 36 inside the 7 ring.

    But you can use every g17 barrel in every other g-17. As far as that goes, you can take the engine out of one 2011 Corvette and put it in another 2011 Corvette. Interchangable parts are not evidence of a poor product.

    Actually it has more to do with the fact that a single action trigger is much easier to manipulate than a double. In the right hands, all shots would have been in the 10 ring from both weapons.

    I like my 1911s better than my Glocks, but I shoot the Glocks better and if I had to choose which one for a shtf situation I would choose the Glock over the 1911 models.

    I just like the cosmetic appeal of the 1911 better. But the Glock is a great looking gun in its own right.

    It all depends on what you are doing with a weapon as to what you prefer.

    If you go through our SWAT course with a 1911, you will not be as big a Glock hater as you are now. When the 1911 gets full of sand, it no longer works so well. Sand to the Glock is like sand to the AK, really has no effect on either of them. I have only seen one Glock explode and it was due to a double powder charge. This was confirmed by analysis of other ammo from that lot. As far as trigger goes, they all have their purpose. Why not put a 1.5 oz Jewel on your hunting rifle?

    In all fairness, when you get away from polymer, you in all honesty no longer have a Glock. To me, race guns are race guns, no matter who makes them. They are their own creature. They are about as akin to what they are supposed to be as Tony Stewarts car is a Monte Carlo.

    You are going to have to elaborate. Glock 17 barrels are interchangable with all other glock 17s. The only 17 that a standard 17 barrel will not fit is a L.

    Amen!!!

    So well said..

    Too many here try to compare a national match 1911 against bone stock Glock for a 100 round range session on a 2D one way range.

    Put a bone stock JMB spec against a bone stock Gaston Glock and the Glock won't pop a plunger tube in a couple thousand rounds, or break a slide stop or a bushing.

    An in spec 1911 is not as mechanically accurate as a Glock, a national match 1911 will shoot the lights out of a Glock, but will be nowhere as reliable.

    I shoot IPSC a lot and never see Glocks choke. A couple fellas at a shoot a couple years ago made fun of me and my buddies Glocks. I asked the most vocal one how many stages before his super accurate 1911 choked. He made it to the middle of the second stage before he had multiple problems. Every stage it was a new excuse. The rain, got dirt in his mags, shot too many rounds and needed cleaning. Even was so brash as to tell me at the end if his gun was running he would have beat us! Never saw the guy again after that.

    Me on the other hand, give me a reliable in spec weapon and I will shoot the chit out of any match. If the CZ82 would knock over the poppers I would be right up there with that gun. Give me enough time to reload the 1895 Nagant and I would have shown him a thing or two. Infect I could have reloaded in time to give him a run for his money, he had that many troubles.

    I don't buy all the talk when I have heard it all on the line against the timer. Cyber talk is no different. FWIW at the ranges we were at I coulda smoked him with a bone stock in spec 1911. There ain't a gun out there that is going to make me a better shooter at this point in my life. Give me a gun and I will give you a run you probably ain't ready for. I don't need a super crisp breaking 1911 trigger to make me a better shooter and with most people that's what it boils down to. Mechanics or lack of is how I have seen it at matches, the range and what the kids call down range.

    Just sayin
