nope, i do not like alloy framed pistols, out of all frame construction (polymer, steel, aluminum) steel is weakest and generally the shortest lived, polymer frames generally use steel inserts to reinforce the frame where strength is needed and have a lower bore axis to compensate for less recoil absorbing mass, and an extra 6-8oz to have the added strength of steel isnt a lot of extra weight for a full size combat pistol.. that said the extra mass will also absorb more recoil, and have less kick to it too

thats not to say the arex isnt a great pistol, but i go for stuff i know will almost certainly last forever

As far as polymer framed pistols go, only one that I'm aware of that has a stainless steel insert is the M&P M2.0. I don't think Glocks have any type of metal insert, at least that im aware of?

most use stainless since it holds up better than aluminum and doesnt add much weight given how little material is actually in the inserts

$585 would seem cheap for what you're getting, at least imho.

AKs are steel, but even the AR upper doesnt have a decent amount of force constantly smacking into it as the barrel reaches the end of its cam before stopping and unlocking form the slide, which is where aluminum frames generally crack under hard use.. they work fine within their service life, but if i were to invest in a sig, or something like a sig id want it to last the rest of my life

also, if the aluminum frame on the sig or arex needs to be replaced, whats that cost?.. whats it cost to replace the aluminum upper on an AR which you dont even need to go through an FFL for? you cant compare the two

No idea what the cost is for a replacement frame, AR15 stripped upper i can get for $50. No idea why you're scared of 7075 bar stock alloy frame with a steel locking block? Plenty of people shooting them without issues. Put a 1,000 rounds through a Glock in 15minutes & see what happens to the frame/dust cover & the RSA. I'm either getting the AREX or a Glock 29/30, for the money I think the AREX is a solid choice.
