    Polymer framed pistols

    I'm in the market for a new 9mm pistol but have one nagging question. Just how long will a polymer frame hold up before the solvents leech out and the "plastic" becomes brittle?

    You will not have any problems with that as far as I have heard....I don't know anyone who has run into a similar problem.

    Well let's see. We're at about 30 years and counting with plastic handguns, and about 50 years and counting with plastic rifles.

    So I guess the jury is still out?

    I guess you could wait another 20 or 30 years, just to be sure though. After all, there's no sense being in the beta test group.
