Why...I have never had problems with them.
Adco and Delton have always done great work for me. almost immediate service on parts and shop work.

I need to add..Sorry to hear that, but did you call Adco and tell them there is a problem. I am sure Steve will make it right.

Missed the smiley? From the links, I assume bigbore is connected with ADCO, and I certainly wouldn't want to see my stuff tortured like that. I assume the limited torture testing on the customer's HK was with their permission.

ADCO threaded and put a Phantom on my AR...and it looks like it was born that way.

WOW...Glad to hear that and didn't realize it also.

Same hear Adco does my Supressors till I got set up to do myself. I know one thing their service is fast and excellent. I do not have any stock or part in Adco. I am just glad to see a place to trust.

OMFG!!! ;G That totally reaffirms my wanting a Glock.

To those that ask why this was done. It helps to easy the mindset of those that are worried about durability and functionality of their Glocks in the worst Life or Death situation.


Like one range master told me, He loves his 1911 to death and its considered the top of the line kinda like a Porche. But his Glock is like a old Honda (old faithful). The 1911 works like a charm if everything is perfect and fine tuned, but the Glock can be old and used and not in the best shape but it's known to still work regardless.

Wow.

Just b/c of this thread, the G21 may be on the nightstand a bit more than it has the past year.

The only thing I'd seriously consider in the furture is *your safety*. Bore obstructions, etc etc. I'm amazed no one got their proverbial eye put out. Simply wearing gloves like Friskers and a heavy denim shirt would probably go a long way.

FINGERS ARE EXPENSIVE.

That said, I think the thread does have a lot of value. I have some high dollar 1911s that I doubt would do as well. However, I know they will make it through 99.999% of the things they will encounter... you being that last .0001% ) Stay away from my safe!

Good testing, glad no one was hurt. A little more safety, then onward and upward!

You know, I bet all the 1911 haters would each chip in $10 to see you do this to a mil spec springer... hell, find a die hard 1911 smith and let him tune the extractor, etc etc... I'd love to see the results.

I do think some might be suprised how well the old horse ran...

Complete bull****. When Larry originally posted his test on 1911 forums (I searched today and it's gone forever since he removed his name off the posters list), yes the Glock choked, but do did his 1911. What ADCO put his G21 through is a LOT more than what Vickers did.

How do some of you get the "you guys have so [sic] much money" comments? This is HIS gun, NOT one he just bought to test. He uses it and carries it and it still works fine, so he's not really out any more than anyone else with one, is he?

GLOCK or SIG

This Thread helped me decide between GLOCK or a SIG... obviously I chose the GLOCK (G22)

It was a USP compact. Would it have been different with a fullsize? Maybe yes, maybe no.

It was a full size. The compact was the day before and performed the same.

Hey Bigbore, congrats on your 'mission successful' with that Glock.


Was that a totally 'stock' pistol? Would have worked differently with the Maritime springcups? Did/are the sights loosened where you had to install new sights? I don't think the plastic ones fm Glock would have stood up to that abuse.

You can always drive over it on concrete etc...next time. ;f

Somebody should send this thread to Jeff Cooper, the guru of the "if it is not a 1911, it is worthless," crowd.
