Yes and yes again… if you actually read TGZ's report (reprinted from a 1991 Gun Week Industry Intelligencer column), you may note that all the "affected" M9s were made with slides of a European manufacture. I believe that you are the same fellow who yesterday wrote me:jonnyslick said:Just bought a Beretta .40 Vertec. Beretta had a problem with slides cracking due to poor metallurgy. Have not heard about this problem in years, did Beretta solve the problem or just cover it up really well?
So why would you think that your new Vertec might be at risk?Read an online string you wrote about beretta slides with Te in them. I just bought a .40 vertec which is more powerful than a nine and I don't want my
$600.00 gun breaking. Did Beretta solve the problem and what if I put a .357sig barrel in it, would it hold up?
jonnyslick said:…the industry is very good at hiding flaws. I have owned Glocks for years and never heard any of the problems I saw here and 1 other site.(I'm new to the online thing) Mine is a .357sig, which kicks hard. So what should I expect a blown barrel or broken slide rails. I guess 2/3 of the police force of America has been tricked along with me. OK, so the Beretta is cured and Glock is crap, is that what I'm reading?
I was wondering more toward what caliber had he been shooting before, but maybe a better question would be which handguns and what caliber were they chambered in. Granted I don't have a G31 but I do have a G23 that I occasionally fire with a 357 SIG barrel installed. I guess I'm not overly recoil conscious with pistols but do think my 4" 629 S&W Mountain Gun does snap a little.CP said:If the 357 SIG "kicks hard" , and it does, why on earth did you buy it?
Case in point, no one "on my site … don't like the Glock," obviously or otherwise… I'm the one primarily there, as the bylines on each page will reveal, and I not only own, shoot and sometimes even carry a Glock, but virtually singled-handedly (without an iota of assistance from Glock!) got Glock pistols "civilian legal" in my county during an 11-month long battle with the local Sheriff (now an ex-con from a stint in his own jail!) So who is it who is so obvious to you who doesn't like "the Glock?"jonnyslick said:…what is it I read wrong or did'nt read that makes you think that? A lot of poeple on your site obviously don't like the Glock I'm just wondering why?
Two more cases in point:I'm sorry if "kicks hard" misled you. I meant that the slide velocity is obviously higher compared to 9mm and .40 and was wondering if the Glock rails would hold up. By the way, define" case support".
Now that wouldn't be any fun!And to think, I could have stayed at Gun Week and insulated myself from all this….
