No, they CAN'T do things just as well or better than conventional metal frames. But as long as people believe they do they will sell all they can squirt out of a mold. They can be manufactured for much less than a machined steel frame (but you will pay almost the same price for the cheap plastic). I agree with the dude. Most of these young guys bloviating about their "perfect" plastic pistols are completely astounded when you hand them a properly built 1911 or S&W N Frame. I just love the look on their faces when they fire one. Then they usually mumble something about how their plastic gun holds 17 rounds to which I have to reply, "you must plan on missing a lot". Oh, and front wheel drive ain't all that great either.
