Good deal.

No-frills, workhorse version of what's probably the definitive example of state-of-the-art for compact metal-framed, single column magazine 9mm pistols ever produced, the venerable 3913 model line.

I'd be happy to see it happen. Absolutely.

It's just that it's been repeatedly explained to me by folks from the company that since the manufacturing costs are greater for the metal framed guns than the plastic ones, the metal ones would have to sell for more money in the highly competitive market.

As much as some folks still appreciate a traditional double action pistol, I'd suspect that increasingly more folks are probably going to be inclined to have the "simpler" trigger (meaning one consistent trigger stroke), and they'd probably see paying less for a pistol that holds 4 more rounds in the magazine (2 more in the restricted states), and having replaceable grip inserts, as being the better bargain for their money.

I think it fair to suspect that if the TDA guns had been selling strong, with constant distributor demand and disappearing as fast as they could be turned out, they'd still be in production.

Aside from the commercial 1911 market, the plastic framed pistols are simply taking ever more market share.

If the plastic guns didn't have such a strong presence in the commercial and LE/Gov markets, do you really think Beretta and Sig would have bothered to introduce their own?
