    OK Guys, as you may know I am swearing of Polymer for the most part...
    (except for my M&Ps and of course, Hi Points:D) So I am trying to compile,
    with YOUR HELP, a Master List of Steel and Alloy framed handguns... ;)
    Many of the imported favorites are still Metal Frames, but they are going "poly"
    also. If you know of the dates and or model designations, I'd like that info so I
    do not fall victim to a clerical error, if I would happen to make a rare online buy.

    Metal Guns are what I call "Legacy Firearms" and can be passed down for
    hundreds of years. I do not have a single "inherited" firearm, but will someday,
    and I'm not looking forward to that, but I stand to get a sweet 8-3/8"
    model 27 S&W revolver someday. I "think" that one is metal, and wood ;)

    So let's hear your input, and I will compile and sort the list!

    Current Production only or "Still available for purchase" guns (like the CZ70, for instance)?

    To be honest, even it it's just "current production" handguns, this is going to be a massive an unwieldy list. How many different 1911's alone are still being produced?

    Anyway, here's a few I'm gonna chuck at you. :)

    Remington R51
    Remington RM380
    Jimenez JA9 (couldn't resist)

    Peace favor your sword,
    Kirk

    I hope to compile these into "groups" so it will not be as unwieldy...

    Like the Sigs, but that can be a bit tricky. They use a "P" designation for metal
    framed guns, where MOST save that for polymers. I will likely need to make an
    exclusion list for that brand. Like the P250 I believe :confused:

    Generally,

    "I Dig the SIG!"

    BOTH.
    I will try and get it into 2 sections, available NEW and USED ONLY...

    I'm also wondering how long my HP 22a will last with Standard Velocity Ammo :(

    Just current or all?

    Some currents:

    Bersa Thunder
    Beretta M-9
    Ruger Mark series (not the POS 22/45)
    Revolvers

    There's probably 100-200 of them.

    All, but please note if it is "out of production" if you see fit to list a "classic" handgun...

    A Q for you, Rich? Does Beretta still make the 92 and 96?
    The Keltec Sub2000 has carbines that use those magazines.

    I'd like to know "old and rare" as that will be a 3rd category

    Really just looking for commonly available, but interested in exceptions :D

    Should probably edit the title to reflect your request for information on non-HP metal framed firearms. At first glance it looked like you wanted to know every model of HP that had an alloy frame.

    We should probably limit the list to basic platforms. Naming every sub model of the 1911 or CZ-75 would make the list pretty endless.

    Yes, try and generalize guys. Thanks, Think... or is it Thinks, Thank? (Thunk) ;)


    Hermy, I noticed just yesterday that some models of the EAA Witness 10mm are polymer :(

    I will denote that. The good ones are METAL :D

    I don't get it.

    Polymer, nylon, other synthetics, they last a LONG time.

    I have a Savage with a Tenite stock, some Mossbergs with a plastic fold down forend, and the Remington Nylon 66 has been going strong for 5 decades.

    Yeah, I know...frame vs stocks, but still...does anyone have an actual case of a poly gun being worn out? We all know of metal ones that cracked or needed to be refurbished as holes were wallowed out...but has polymer had the same problems?

    Or will it take longer than 40 years to show up?

    I think its more of it degrading over time that people worry about. The rails can be changed easily on a poly not on a full metal gun.
