    I don't understand why Glock hasn't been suing all these companies that are basically stealing their core design? Not saying I WANT Glock to sue them, but it's pretty obvious what's going on.

    From what I've gathered over the years, it's about patent expirations on the Gen 3 frames. No one's making Gen 4/5 slides and frames.

    The main two are Lone Wolf and Zev.
    Then you have Shadow Systems, a few others, and even PSA.

    Lone Wolf and Zev are HUGE in the Glock world. They may have access to Gaston's ear.
    And who's going to tell Palmetto to cease and desist?

    However, when S&W copied the Glock, that fallout was legendarily huge.
    I think there was a little bit more than that to it per the unofficial Glock book.
    Something about the CEO of S&W saying "if you can't make a polymer pistol like Glocks, then just copy the mothereffer!"
    That's why the original S&W Sigma was shut down hard in the mid 90s.
    Per wiki:
    The Sigma series pistols were so similar to the competing Glock pistols that Glock sued Smith & Wesson for patent infringement. The case was settled out of court in 1997, with S&W agreeing to make alterations to the Sigma design and pay an undisclosed amount to Glock.[6]

    Glock's haven't ever been aesthetically pleasing. But, the aftermarket re-imagining of them are even uglier in my humble opintion. Regardless, Glock's are great for the tool they are. I have a couple dozen 1911's in 10mm auto. Pictured below is my Dan Wesson's. Pictured are 8 of the original 1 of 150 series, as well as a highly polished Dan Wesson Patriot. They are beautiful to look at, and are very accurate (more than I am in a few cases). But, all that said, I still grab the Glock's when I go out to fill the freezer or for protection from 2 or 4 legged predators. Everyone will recognize the Glock's in the other picture. Shown are a model 29, 20, and 40.
