As to date I have yet to see any torture test of a Glock that hasn't been done to a 1911. In fact the 1911 came out on top of the Glock because it showed no damage while the Glock was damaged with a melted guide rod.
I never said Glocks were more durable than 1911s, just that the difference between all-metal and poly guns, in terms of durability, is not the "chasm" some people try to make it out to be. In all honesty, I'd rather get a Glock over the 1911, and replace the plastic guide rod with a metal one. It's cheap and easy "fix" if having a plastic guide rod bothers you, and well worth saving nearly 2/3 of a pound while gaining the 3 extra rounds per mag. I have a feeling I'd benefit from those perks 1000 times over before benefiting from having an all metal gun over a Glock.
