    Having said that, the insides of my daily carry, a Ruger SR-40, look just like the insides of a cheap 50's cap gun! Damn! LOL!

    You're not looking closely enough because polymer and modern metallurgy techniques like MIM have advanced more than just a bit since the 1950s... not all plastics are created equal. What you're calling 'quality' is really subjective aesthetics. The performance of products made with QUALITY polymer frames and/or parts is exceptional.

    Now examples of bad QUALITY polymer and metallurgy would be Hi Point, Jimenez, Jennings/Bryco or other sub $200 handgun brands. Making a gun out of all metal (with possible exception of grip panels) doesn't mean it's QUALITY. There are plenty of all metal handguns that have horrible QUALITY... a number of revolvers referred to as 'Saturday night specials', any Lorcin, Rohm, llama... I could go on and on.
    Being made in the good 'ol days doesn't mean it's QUALITY either... the Italian Glisenti, the type 94 Japanese Nambu, LeMat grapeshot revolver, etc.

    No, I really don't care what the innards look like if the gun works.

    Glocks work. They are quality firearms.

    You seem to have a problem differentiating between quality and what firearms you like.

    I was referencing your "workmanship" claim.

    Depends on who puts it on the holder, my wife or myself.

    Is that far enough off topic???
