Yes polymers are plastic but they are a step above the low quality plastics used in toys, etc. Here's some info that will give you a better understanding between the two:

A polymer is a large molecule (macromolecule) composed of repeating structural units typically connected by covalent chemical bonds. While polymer in popular usage suggests plastic, the term actually refers to a large class of natural and synthetic materials with a wide variety of properties.

Thanks for the advice djk. The spring in the magazine still feels really tight, but I'll give a new magazine a try.

tig - I'm a senior chem major :) I agree there be a difference in connotation between the two, but the differences stop there.

you should clean you mags for any gun. single stacks are tighter than doubles, therefore singles get cleaned more often. take out the follower and the spring will follow. soak the cotton mop attachment with appropriate cleaner. scrub inside, wipe clean and lube. wipe the spring and follower, lube, reassemble. helped a lot for me, in my 1911 commander.

only thing i don't like is the center of balance, top heavy

a better 9mm would be, beretta 84 cheetah or px4 storm.

Please read the message I will post in "Gun Chatter" about underwater fire. I read questions related to yours quite often, and it scares Me that someone might hurt themselves, or others.

gball, the glock 19 is a very reliable and lightweight weapon that has many pros that I will throw your way. The mags are about 20 bucks a piece if you look in the right places, the weight is amazing at about 22 ounces compared the px4's 28 and the glock 19 is also shorter in lenght by about an inch. The glock 19 has so many accessories and holsters you'd have no problems making your gun anything you'd like. The only con that I see that might make you hesitate might be the lack of safety on this gun but its still worth every penny in reliability and will last you forever if you take care of it. Berettas are good guns too but might be more expensive for you when you decide to purchase mags or accessories, just something to keep in mind.

Every review I've ever seen of the G-19 has been 100%.

I've owned many Glocks and can easily believe it.

Great thing about Glock is it has the fewest moving parts of any semi. Easy takedown & maint.

The PX4 is a fine sidearm and a manual safety is good for a first sidearm.

I'm looking for the lightest most accurate glock out there...money isn't a object for the gun...I went shooting with a buddy of mine awhile back and I shot his glock...I loved the way it felt in the palm of my hand...near weightless and it was extremely accurate...don't know what kind it was because he never said. I'm an avid big game hunter. Had a run in with a grizzly and I didn't have the right side-arm...Ended up with 100 stiches in my arm and I'll be d**ned if I make that mistake twice...any help would be greatly appreicated

on a side note. I have a AR-15 and I was wondering if they sold lighter replacement parts to cut down on some of the weight...if you haven't noticed I like extremely light guns...I find they are alot more fun to play with when they aren't aiming you...but your aiming them
