Matrix Arms entered the handgun market about a year ago with the release of their MX19 line of Glock 19 parts-compatible pistols. The main feature that sets the MX19 pistols apart from other handguns on the market that use G19 parts is the machined aluminum frame. The company has just announced a new competition version of their MX series of handguns called Matrix Arms MXI which is a Glock 34 size pistol that also has a metal frame, except made of steel.
