You mean like when perfect Glock perfectly realized they perfectly used the perfectly wrong perfect spring on the perfect 9mm perfect models on the perfect Gen 4s?

Manufacturers need to learn, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
In my opinion VW should still be producing 1968 style Beetles.

Crazy how similar the VP9 and PPQ are. I love them both and I probably shoot them better than any out of the box non-1911 based 9mm pistol made.

Nah, just playing around with the Glock Perfection thing, always found it a little bit pretentious. Actually have nothing against Glocks, I own one and actually like it

Pretty sure all the tooling was bought by a company in Mexico and they still produce them new. Don't know if its actually true but there were tons of them there when I went down a few years ago and most looked new.

Yea Mexico still builds them or they did last time I checked on one of our MFG sheets at work. Those cars were built to last unless you live in the rust belt.

Eh, I'm still rocking all Gen 3 glocks... with the exception of my 43 and Gen 4 26. So the Gen 5 doesn't do much for me, but the the removal of the finger groves is nice.

"pre-order" as in blue label sales for LEO's, or departments can order to "issue" to LEO's?
