The Least Best Kept Secret in All of Gun-dom

There's a countdown clock on the Glock Live Events website, counting down the seconds to 20 March 2015 at 9AM…

There's pictures of a dual spring, a la the Glock single stack .380 but not, on Facebook; other teases show the outline of a strangely shortened Glock slide…

There's a leaked product photo...

A Russian gun website is showing what may or may not be…could beoh, hold your breath hold your breathI'm scared Mommy hold me!finally finally…I hear the music from JAWS…this is the Big One…8.7 on the Gun Richter Scale…tell the kids to get a job, Martha, because we're going to need cash right awayoh please oh please oh please…YES! The gunny equivalent of a unicorn! The…pause for effect…Glock 43 single stack 9mm! Maybe.


Is any of this stuff real?

Beats me. As a rule, the Austrians make Hillary Clinton seem positively transparent. As I told you guys after SHOT, all my cherubs and seraphim were telling me that the single stack 9mm Glock would be introduced at SHOT…shows you what a bunch of thuggish winged angelic hosts know!

As I said before SHOT, if and when the 9mm angle stack appears, if will go from zero to a bazillion units sold in about 30 minutes to become the best-selling handgun on earth and at least 4 of the remaining 8 planets. I'll buy one. So will you.

Glock has posted a dual captive recoil spring as a teaser for a new pistol. Now, the common guess is this is for the new single stack 9. Now, we all know that ain't going to happen, so here are my guesses for what this actually is:
The new G42L. A long slide version that no one has been asking for.
A captive buffer tube spring for the first pistol AR that glock is making. In 6.8. Because that makes sense. The GLAR.
The main spring housing for the new Glock revolver. The Glevolver. Only available in 327 federal and 455 webley.

It will indeed be a unicorn in California as it won't be allowed.

Would it really be that much slimmer and/or better than the Glock 26?

I'm waiting for the Glock Winterized AR, an AR that doesn't need lubrication and is designed for cold weather use with over sized controls, trigger guard, and a white coating that you can't get your tongue stuck to.
The GWAR!

Thats all old man Glock needs so he can afford another goomah...

If I know Glock, it will be a slightly larger pistol than the 42........in...........wait off it............ 9x18 Ultra! They'll sell a bunch of them. The original mags won't work, then they will after two generations and then and only then will they introduce a single stack 9x19.

Or it could be a new 38 Super!

I will Shield my gaze for the time being... awaiting the transition from vaporware to reality, then proven reliability.

Well the wife is a "Glock Girl" - so if she can rack the slide on the 9mm Glock 43, she likely will get one. However, years of working in the dental field have limited her grip and I have a feeling I will be loading .380 for her Glock 42.

I, personally, could care less, other than I work in a gun shop, and I know we will sell a ton of them, if and when they bring it out.

I've carried a G19 and now a G22 as a duty pistol for going on 20 years. I own a G27 for a BUG, but it's too large for off duty carry, especially here in SoCal.

At the IACP convention a few years ago I got some quality time with one of the Glock factory guys. I told him that we carry and train and shoot and in some cases sleep with our Glocks constantly. The platform is part of us. I don't want to use two different platforms, Glock when I'm on duty and another when I'm off duty.

"So when are you going to make a small BUG that a big guy like me can hold onto, not like the G42."

The guy said in so many words...we sell everything we make, change and the adaptation to new models comes slowly. With that being said I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the development of a smaller pistol line.

Hurumph. I reluctantly carried my G27 until this new generation of CC gats showed up at my gun store. Now it's a Ruger LC9s. It's small enough for me, yet is large enough for my catcher's mitt hand to hold onto.

I understand that Glock sells everything they make, but I also know that they have missed the concealed carry bus, big time.

Thankfully Kahr, Ruger, and Smith, among others, have taken advantage of new manufacturing techniques and are the innovator that Glock was 20 years ago. Today Glock is the General Motors of the pistol world with all the good and bad that goes along with that fact.

Innovation is a bitch, but you have to innovate or die a slow death. A single stack 9mm Glock is a yawner unless there is something innovative and unique about the gun.

Glock, you are being overtaken by the innovatiors. You're pudgy and you sleep well at night. The other guys are hungry and restless.

Glock will sell a ton of them, because they're Glocks, just like Apple will sell a ton of iPhones this year.

But the days of innovation are over for both of those companies.

Except that the "leaked photo" is just a photoshopped G42.

Not until they make one with a standard rifled barrel I can shoot cast lead out of. Otherwise, it's just another Glock.

John Richardson said...

Meh!

I don't doubt that Glock will sell a gazillion billion of whatever they release just because.

That said, I went Pro - Ruger LC9s Pro.
