The Glocks of the past were whittled down pieces of 2 x 4's, or felt that way in my hand. I had a SIG P226 for years and years....wish I never sold it, never had a malfunction with it either, and shot a ton of IPSC matches with it.
Big difference between the P226 and the 250.... Again all the guns they call their "Classic Line" are great guns. The 250... is junk.
The two contracts that did get awarded....
