  •  Eh, no good reason the magazine needs to get hot (3+ / 0-)

    if half-well designed, and there shouldn't be any stress placed on the magazine from the act of firing. I don't see any reason to expect a magazine to perform better or worse based on just the material.

    I'm not a gun person at all, but aren't big chunks of Glock pistols made of plastic?

    •  Barrels… (0+ / 0-)

      …are what need to be made of metal. The cartridge explodes inside the barrel thus propelling the bullet forward. That explosion will most likely warp, deform, or melt a plastic barrel. Thus giving you one shot. A Glock, while filled with plastic components, still has a steel barrel.

      Teh stoopidTM, it hurts. Buy smart, union-printed, USA-made, signs, stickers, swag for everyone: Get your We are the 99% Yard Sign.
