    I purchased a used alloy frame 380. Should I be concerned about durability of the alloy at all as far as any cracking of the frame. Or should it be good and reliable for many more years to come?>

    Alloy framed pistols have been around for a very very long time... Sometimes.. if shooting heavy loads.. there cam be issues with the frame cracking stretching cause the firearm to become unreliable.. Its rare.. but it does happen... Ploy framed guns do the same thing... close inspection and good upkeep will limit this a great deal...
