Default FERRO 9MM PISTOL FROM DRD TACTICAL: STEEL FRAME GLOCK

http://www.gunsholstersandgear.com/2...l-frame-glock/



DRD Tactical announced it would show the new FERRO 9mm pistol at the 2018 SHOT Show. The new pistol is fed from Glock compatible magazines, but unlike a Glock pistol, it has a significant twist: it has a steel frame.

A stainless steel frame is a bit heretical for many fans of the Glock system. Even though it wasn’t the first gun with a polymer frame, Glock popularized the concept back in the 1980s. Since then, there has been a significant trend toward polymer frames in military, law enforcement and self-defense handguns.

However, there are many shooters who prefer to have a steel frame from which to launch projectiles. If you are of a like mind, it would seem the DRD Tactical FERRO is one possibility for you to consider.

In addition to the frame, DRD Tactical uses stainless steel for the barrel and slide as well. As shown in the above photograph, the FERRO can ship with a threaded 4.88″ barrel. You can also purchase it with a non-threaded 4.48″ barrel – the identical length to a standard Glock 17 pistol.

The trigger is provided by Apex Tactical Specialties. Additionally, the gun comes with an extended slide lock and magazine release. On top is a set of night sights.

DRD Tactical will ship the gun with three Magpul 17-round GL9 magazines.

Exactly how compatible this gun is with a Glock remains to be seen. I suspect that a lot of the parts interchange between a G17 and the FERRO. However, there may be some that do not.

The DRD FERRO 9mm will be offered with a black nitride finish and with a NiB Battleworn finish as is shown in the photo. DRD Tactical expects to ship the gun by spring of 2018. I do not have word on a price yet.

For those that are not familiar, DRD Tactical is a Georgia based company that is known for building high quality rifles like the APTUS, KIVAARI and quick takedown Paratus.

I thought the original Glock was ugly.

I predict that the recoil would be insignificant. The combination of all steel - 9mm caliber - striker fired (low bore axis) is not a bad idea.

I like it. If the price is similar to a Glock, I'll probably grab one.

Though the distressed or battleworn or whatever the heck they call it look, I'm not a fan of on that picture up top.

Grip looks awful with the long horizontal lines bit I would definitely be interested in buying one.

I retract my previous statement. @3k it's a money grab. I'll buy 6 poly glocks.

Where did you see the $3K price tag?

The MSRP on Wilson Combat EDC-X9 is $2895.
Hmmm, buy the 1911 or the Glock?
Maybe get the CZ Czechmate Parrot for $3100?

CCF Race Frames were the first manufacturer to offer aftermarket metal Glock frames.
^They've been available since 2007.

Appears the main difference between CCF Race Frames and DRD Tactical is...
... CCF Race Frames = aluminum
... DRD Tactical = stainless steel

Click on the mfg link in the article and follow your way to pistols. 3k. It is cool and different. But at 3 grand it's not high up on my list. I figured 1-1.5k.

$3K is quite high for a steel Glock IMO.

$2995 MSRP might become $2500 street price. $6K CA-unobtanium price?

Not sure why but it looks fake. Like a cigarette lighter or something. Maybe it's the finish.

I think it looks nice, but if the $3k price tag is real then hell no, I'd rather pickup a EDC X9.

Why you want metal for Glock? Is not good enough as procured from Glock Ges.m.b.H.? You think needs improvement? Then maybe you find job with army of Austria! You have drinks with Gaston Glock, trade story of many weapons designed and details of school for engineering!

Or maybe you not do this. Probably is because you never design weapon in whole life. You look at fine Austrian pistol, think it need crazy **** all metal weapon. You have disease of American capitalist, change thing that is fine for no reason except to look different from comrade. You put cheap flashlight of Chinese slave factory on bottom, you put bad red dot of Malaysian child worker on top, you put silly cuts on grip so you are like American movie guy John Rambo. Maybe you put sex dildo on top to **** yourself in ******* for making shameful travesty of pistol of Gaston Glock, no?

Pistol is fine. You **** it, it only get heavy and you still no hit largest side of barn. Go to firing range, practice with many magazine of cartridge. Then you not need dumb **** of metal of pistol.

The first 3 replies on this thread are probably the best I've ever seen in a row.

A metal glock...all the negatives of the original with none of the positive aspects.

3 months later.... "FS: DRD Ferro 9 | SOCAL | $10,000 obo | No mags unless LE"

Probably look a lot less JENKY without the battleworn finish. It looks like hell.

I'd rent one just to try shooting a steel Glock only if it really is a steel Glock, not just mag compatible.

I can imagine how great a concept like this COULD look if they designed it right with replaceable rubber or G10 grip panels on the sides like steel and alloy CZ's, and good checkering on the front strap, etc... like a 1911 or at least some grip lines machined out, not molded. Lots of potential and ZERO realized here IMHO.

Agreed. Why would I want a heavy $3k Glock? That’s custom 1911 money. I would rather spend it there and shoot the Glocks I have.

3K for a non-mass produced handgun si pretty reasonable

You know the standard Glock is 89% steel by weight, which is why that “undetectable plastic gun” garbage was so much BS.

Everyone wants to change that 11% though.

Kinda cool I think. If they sold same price as glocks, I'm sure they would sell.
