Internet rumors of a Canik Rival coming with a steel frame, stainless/chrome and black.
Anyone have any info?

It was accidentally listed on Buds Gun Shop as a Rival-S Chrome but has since been pulled down.

I'll be all over that one when it comes out.

It looks like it was accidentally also posted for a time at Midwest Gun Works too.

Matrix is doing an aluminum framed G19 and S&W is coming out with a steel frame.

It's all the rage now, not sure why.

The steel frame is better for competition. A heavier gun has less muzzle rise than the same thing with a plastic frame.

Doing better in IPSC/USPSA is (in my opinion) what is driving all these new steel framed models (e.g. the Walther Q5 SF).

If they bring out a Rival with a steel frame - and the price is still reasonable - I will definitely get one and relegate my current Rival to backup duty (for shooting USPSA and Steel Challenge and maybe use it in IDPA, too).

Not to mention for people like me (with slight built-in tremors on some days) where a heavier chassis is inherently steadier.

It started showing up on dealer sites today!

$850 for a Dark Side and $900 for Stainless Steel. I was really afraid they would be significantly more. I'll have a DS ASAP, please.
