I see people saying that they want to replace MIM manufactured parts with "metal" MIM parts ARE metal, high quality, hardened steel, as a matter of fact. The only plastic part is the mainspring housing.

Is a part better just because it is machined? No. Machined parts can and often are of sub-standard quality. Just because apart costs more, doesn't nake it better.

All the components of HK USP's are MIM or stampings, and I don't see a rush to replace these parts.

My Gold Match is 4 years old, has many thousands of rounds through it. The MIM parts are holding up quite well, thank you.

I feel your money is better spent on ammo.
