Steel vs Polymer Anonymous 08/14/2019 (Wed) 05:11:59 No. 11 History File history

Let's see what /k/ has to say about this.

polymer

pros:

- cheap to produce
- lightweight
- doesn't rust

cons:

- Lack of weight makes balance feel off
- recoil isn't as well absorbed as steel
- doesn't outlive the owner
- flexing

Steel

pros:

- Heft helps control recoil
- Will not melt as easily as polymer
- no flex
- Tougher than polymer
- Gives proper balance to gun
- BIG IRON

cons:

- Heavy
- will rust if not properly taken care of
- ?

Call me stubborn but I wont fall for the modern plastic fad. Anyway which do you side more with?

Steel is better in a vacuum, where you aren't carrying around a heavy fun. But with polymer, by adding a light you get a lot of the weight and recoil mitigation advantages anyways.

Polymer flex is a good thing. It absorbs recoil better than steel, not worse. Learn to physics.
i work with metal,i prefer metal, only real con is weight as a lot of the others are maintenance issues, besides, when you run out of ammo i'd rather be being the shit out of someone with a full steel framed gun than a poly gun. lol
the frame absorbs the recoil more which causes it to twist in your hand making successive shots more difficult, the rigidity of a steel frame sends the force directly back in a more controllable fashion inline with the shooters position.

the dynamics at play here aren't limited to the gun alone,don't forget about the shooter.
if one cant crack a walnut with it, its worthless
