I have a question for you guys. I know some of you don't like Glocks but I was wondering if there's any noticeable difference in a titanium striker instead of a steel one? I also heard that titanium parts wear down a lot quicker than steel ones but that doesn't make much since to me since Ti is harder. Any experience with this stuff??

PS I really enjoy my Glock 22, I heard all the horror stories but I don't shoot anything but factory loads out of it and I love it.

I dont know the answer to your question, but I'll call my department's armorer later and ask him. I carry a Glock23 on duty and have never had a problem with it. Have over 5K rounds through it and never as much as a stove pipe.

Yes, I have one in my G23 and the diference is not that big.
It is ligther than the factory part and it is suposed to give a quicker reaction time.
So far I've shot over 2000 rnds with this device and haven't had a single problem with it.
I guess that this is one of those devices that give you the edge in a shooting competition but you must remember that it's not the bow or the arrow, it's the indian what counts.
I keep it in my gun for daily use and if it ever breaks or wears out I can replace the factory part in a snap and keep on shooting and of course I'll post about it if it ever happens.
My advise is that if you have the money and want to show off or if you are into precision shooting then buy it, if not, you can probably live without it.
Another advantage is the increased resistance to corrosion but the factory part is Stainless Steel so corrosion shoudn't be a problem.
Good shooting and practice as often as your Checkbook & wife let you.

Benny, first of all, the ti is not harder than steel, though it is very tough and lighter. Second, it will wear quicker than the steel striker. Third, there have been several instances where the ti strikers have caused light strikes, in some Glocks. Bottom line, any slight advantage in reset times, with the ti striker are vastly offset by the possibility of a misfire, especially in a carry gun. If you're not Rob Letham, you reallly have no need for a ti striker in your Glock... :)
