CZ. Had one experience. The only way it could have been worse is if I were injured. It is pretty remarkable that didn't happen.
Nope.
Not much of a Sig fan either.

Never owned a Glock and never will. Fired two mags through one many years ago and it was like holding a 2x4. More power to those who prefer them but you couldn't give me one.
You must be a single stack guy. I get it. That is why we have variety, and it is wonderous.
Glock grip angle can be very polarizing. It is supposed to be the ergonomic solution, but many don't care for it. I can use it, and tolorate it,

Happy Turkey Day.

Well, haven't had any love for these S&W
327NG used
442 new
Maybe if I discovered one that FIT hand and trigger superior to Rugers and hit the bullseye like SA MOD.2 45 ....
College gun team coach likes one too big for my carry habits = S&W 627-3 8 shot

Tried to tweak & love G27 40, even converted it to 357sig but this is a worst effort for Glock, even the frame cracked they had to replace with no comment, no sorries
I'm with you on the 27. I have a 26.
Some love them.
Some hate them, and I'm in this column.
Load it out with a G19 mag and a msg sleeve, and it runs just fine. Otherwise, not too good in my hand.
For the no correspondence? Be happy it got repaired. Expecting correspondence or much else in the way of feedback isn't going to give you much satisfaction, usually. You modified their gun, so,,,,,,,,,,,,,

LMAO. We likes what we likes. I enjoy all the Glock hate. It is usually humorous, but then so is all the other brand hate, usually.
I like the way a Glock does the exact same thing the exact same way every time. The grip angle and some other things can be very polarizing though. I get that too.
There are lots of reliable units out there, and reliable is just that, no matter the name stamped on the side.
On the same note that Arizona touched on, ever wonder why everyone wants to compare to a Glock? Yea, there is a reason for that. Some don't need to, but some seem to want to, and not do a good job of it in the comparison.

That really is what it all boils down to. Everybody's different.

I was a late comer to the whole polymer framed pistol phenomena. When they first came out I swore that I would never own a Glock. Not so much that it was a good or bad gun it's just that It was the ugliest God damn pistol on the market second only to High Point. Then curiosity got to me and I just had have one. Now I have six and one Shadow Systems MR918. As someone who owns a wide variety of guns and loves to work on them. Glocks have got to be the easiest guns to work on and customize. There are very few moving parts and there are God only knows how many aftermarket parts and accessories available for them. One of the easiest ways to improve the trigger is with a Ghost connector, installation is about a 15 minute job if you're slow. I've never had a Glock fail to fire or jam, not one.
I seem to remember saying a lot of that when the Glock hit the ,market, along with speaking out as to the new gun probably not going to last for too long. There have been plenty that didn't.
Well, it has. Many of us didn't understand the marketing. Make a dependable gun, simple to use, at a frugal price, and go for the "fleet" sales. They did all that very well, and became an icon along the way.
I carry one every day. It is far from my "favorite", or what I conceive as a favorite, but does what it does the exact same way, every single time. Did I mention that before? :ROFLMAO: There is an amount of comfort in that functionality.
Unlike you, I did have one that was a dog. That slowed my willingness to try one again, so it was a couple of years and a Generation later when I tried again. It was a department trade and probably was in need of some TLC that would have been very cheap (springs and maybe an extractor), but no one I knew of could work on them at the time, so it went on to greener pastures. That was the only one though.
