After looking at the 2020/21 imports in Pakistan, I am talking pistols only, it seems striker fired pistols are “in” and hammer fired “out”. It seems like world over the trend of making striker fired pistols in catching up. Why is that? I am not sure, but the few I have seen are all going for strikers. Please see the few examples below…
Even CZ has a new line up CZ P10 series. All of them are striker fired. The Walther has the now getting very famous Walther PDP.

However the Chinese have preferred to stick to their old designs with some minor changes, but hammer fired. I am not sure if this is because of the importers or a world wide trend, but this is the shape of things to come. How do you fell about this change? Share your thoughts please. Cheers
