    Because in my opinion, They suck and are prone to failure just like the locking blocks of the Barrettas. Once again, That's MY OPINION. Just like it is of your opinion that they are great reliable weapons. As I said in my earlier posts, There are a lot more instances of Glocks blowing up than any other weapon out there with Barettas coming in second for catistophic failures. I've also acknowledged that the S&W sigma series were pieces of shit and notorious for double feeds and jams.

    I get it, You like glocks and they work for YOU. More power to you. Through my experiance and research, glocks Don't work for me so, I've found another weapon system that works for ME.

    Berettas have failed with factory ammunition (even the low-pressure NATO FMJ round), which is fact, not opinion, because the US Armed Forces had problems with their M9 pistols;

    However, I challenge anyone to post a real, verifiable incident of a Glock having a catastrophic component failure resulting from the use of factory ammunition.

    Glocks have had failures with "Factory ammo"

    The reason why the glocks blow up is because of a poor design in the ramp to the barrel that leaves the case unsupported. Glock has somewhat aknowleged this through their "Next generation" glocks

    THIS, isw what causes the glocks to go Ka-Boom.


    I'm sorry but, I'll take my S&W 4006, fire all the "Crappy" ammo I can find through it, maybe, and I mean MAYBE have a misfeed one in a blue moon that's easily corrected by a tap, rack, and bang over possably becoming permantely disfigured by a glock. But, to each their own.

    I think that would go back to the bullet setback issue which would be factory, albeit defective, ammo combined with the dreaded "unsupported chamber"

    Sadly, it probably would have been more reliable than the Mosquito. I would have been better off waiting a couple of years and getting the conversion slides that they now sell.

    Oh I am in no way saying the Mosquito is a quality firearm. Just saying that I'd have to think long and hard between Ketec and Walther and after a long consideration I would probably just carry my hockey stick.
