hey operators, I've been thinking about my options for moving from my steel-framed CZ up to a polymer wondergun. however, part of why I've been such an autist about sticking with the CZ obsessively is that it lacks finger grooves, which just don't feel right for me.

obviously the Gen 5 Glocks lack these, but they have a poor aftermarket. Gen 2s are an option, as well. or I could always customize a later Gen Glock myself (or pay someone to do it for me). Arsenal has the Stryker but I am hesitant about that one for some reason. any other polymer guns I am missing?

The gen5 only has a poor aftermarket because its only been available since August. Parts don't manufacture themselves over night. And if you're so worried about aftermarket support choosing something like the Arsenal pistol, which as far as I know have ZERO aftermarket parts, makes no sense to me.

Your only viable alternative at this point is a Sig P320 or a S&W M&P

yeah nah, The Sig babby was dead on delivery.


get a Glock. if you still dislike the grooves, get a polymer80 frame for it.

If you think Glocks (of whatever generation) do not have enough aftermarket in the future, no other gun will ever measure up.

honestly I'd love a p80 frame if they just sold it for $65 extra complete but I guess that's not the point

As >>106458 said, the Gen 5 only has a small aftermarket since it's brand new. If you like Glocks, get one and backfill aftermarket parts as they're available if you must.

M&Ps are nice, but the hinging trigger sucks. I'd replace it with an Apex trigger just to get rid of the hinge, but the pull improvements are nice.

You could also try the CZ P10C. It's basically a better Glock, but with unknown reliability. My friend's runs fine, but other people have had problems. The best part is that you don't have to change anything (unless the grip texture tears your hands up, then a set of rubberized Talon grips will fix that).

there's always the sarsilmaz st9 if you trust turkish kebab quality

I remember handling an Armalite AR-24 (i.e. a sarsilmaz CZ-75) at SHOT show years ago and somehow an unidentifiable tiny piece of black metal came loose from the interior of the gun and hit my shoe. I notified the nearest Armalite rep and then GTFO.

OP here, got to actually handle a gen 5 Glock 17 today and yeah this gun is everything I've wanted Glock ergos to be for years. Fuck, now I have to actually budget for it.

Nearly all aftermarket items are useless and you would be better served buying ammo. Holsters, mags, and sights are all you need.
