I finally have my first glock ( 27 ) and I am so happy with it. I used to be an XD sub compact owner and sold it because it was bigger than needed, way more internal parts than a glock, harder to detail strip and ..... welll.....ITS NOT A GLOCK!!!! what else can i say. I got the gun yesterday new in case for only $450.00 and just finished a full detail strip and clean. I was amazed how many parts are plastic in a glock, but with their reputation they must have done somthing right. the striping process was a lot faster than an XD and I only nedded a allen wrench(as a punch) and a small pair of plyers to do some light tapping on the allen to remove the trigger pin.
