Armscor has designed a striker-fired clone of a Glock compatible 9mm that’s manufactured with a metal frame, uses Glock magazines and internals, and simultaneously, reduces flex and adds a little weight to the gun.

THE FRAME

The STK100 features an aluminum frame that adds just enough weight to reduce felt recoil while still being comfortable to carry all day. The grip texture will keep your grip solid with angled grooves on the rear, grooves on the front of the backstrap, and serrated panels on the side.

The grip angle is different from the Glock also and has been designed with a 1911 grip angle.

While the frame is constructed using aluminum, it’s machined in two pieces and assembled like a clamshell using 6 fasteners. The interior/trigger assembly is a one-piece unit manufactured from steel.

THE SLIDE

The slide is machined with rectangular cutouts on the sides, giving the STK100 a slick look, but also making the slide a little lighter which brings you back on target faster. The rear sight of the pistol is mounted onto a plate meaning the pistol is optics ready.

THE VERDICT

Some shooters are not happy with flex in a polymer-frame pistol, and certain manufacturers are adding all metal models of their polymer-framed guns. Now shooters have an option for metal with the aluminum framed STK100. Go check one out and see if it’s right for you!

That’s all for now folks! Please keep sending in your questions, tips, and article ideas. And as always – “Let’s Be Careful Out There.”
