    What Kind of Plastic

    Does anyone know what kind of plastic is used to make the trigger parts?
    I'm so surprised how much of this firearm is plastic and how well it holds up.
    Just curious
    Thanks!

    The kind that unicorn horns are made from if it is a gen 1 or 2. That is why they cost more than gold.

    i don't know, but it does hold up amazingly well considering it is in contact with moving steel parts and striking a steel firing pin.

    Gen 2 here.
    That's what I mean, *polymer* hitting metal and still holding up after 1K rounds?
    I would like to know what kind of material that is.

    Mines made from same plastic as Legos...I hate Legos.

    Seriously I'm leaning towards FRP.

    All kidding aside...it's nothing to worry about. I bought my first PS90 around 2006 and it's fired thousands of rounds with no issues as have 2 P90's.
