The 41 sounds interesting; I wonder what size the 42 will be.

I'm LE and I'm in charge of all things related to firearms in my agency. I spoke to our rep a few weeks ago and he told me at that time that Glock would be coming out with a single stack fullsize .45acp and a single stack .380 in 2014. He said the reps were back at the factory and they got to see both models. I can't remember if he said they were able to shoot them or not. I didn't ask the model numbers so I don't know if they are designated the 41 and 42. I have no reason to believe that his info is not accurate. He has always been a straight guy and helpful.

I just did a google search to see if any info was out on new Glock models and found this thread.

I'm not buying that. 1911 guys won't buy it and who wants to give up capacity in a full sized frame? Not me.

Combining all of the features in this thread, maybe it's a competition 34/35 length with adjustable sights and a single stack. I guess it may allow the Glock into certain single stack divisions.

I don't know about other sports, but "Single Stack" in USPSA is limited to the 1911 platform only. The name is deceiving in that respect.

Oh, I don't compete, so I wouldn't know. Just speculating.

This guy is a Glock LE rep and he said he actually held both of them. I'm not sure why he would just make it up.

I think a lot of people would love a Glock .45 that would fit their hands, the Glock 21 is like holding a brick. Some guys in my department have already said they will buy it for duty with the 36 for back up and off duty, myself included. Look at the popularity of the sig 220 in LE and the civilian market. Being a single stack hasn't the 220.

Unless I misunderstood him and he was saying a Glock 21s?? I've got to admit that does make sense. When I spoke to him I was irritated that they were making the .380 instead of a 9/40 single stack.

I can call him next week and confirm it.

Only time will tell. It just doesn't make any practical or economic sense to me.

I can't relate. My 21 and 20 fit my hand perfectly even with a Pachmayr grip sleeve.

I could see it being a problem for the medium/small handed among us. Most of those persons will opt for a 9/40 medium frame, though.

Too each his own. I wouldn't buy a single stack large frame Glock and I think the 36 will be discontinued due to poor sales.

I don't know if I'd use the work popularity. The percentage of LEOs using a 220 has got to be around .0001%. Civilians usually just buy what feels good/looks good to them.

That makes more sense then a single stack large frame but I still doubt it.

That's probably a universal sentiment among Glock owners.

It's funny. People ***** and moan about the GAP's capacity, but then want a single-stack 45ACP. Just don't get it.

At least they'd be moving in the right direction for what people are asking for. As long as it's LCP,BG380,P238, DB380, etc size, it will sell extremely well.

The Glock model system is simple if you pay attention. First came the 17 as it was the 17th patent of the founder. Next was the 18 a full retard version of the 17. Then comes a smaller version of the 17, the 19. Next comes the big blocks 20, and 21. After the big blocks comes a 40 cal version of the 17 the 22. It gets shrunk so we have a 23. Evidently the 22 needed steroids so it gets blown up to make the 24. Glock thought we would need a compact .380 so here comes the 25. Now comes the subcompacts, 26,27,28, 29, and 30. A new caliber is introduced 31, 32, and 33. Now we need practical, tacticals, hello 34, and 35. Not listening to our needs we get a single stack .45 instead of a 9mm here is the 36. Again with a new caliber 37,38,39. That brings us current.

I don't see glock skipping the 40. I say that they are working on something challenging for the 40 and these two new models passed it so to speak.

The only new 45 I'd be interested in would be a full length grip (but single stack) with a 4" barrel. If they can make it hold 7 or 8 if I'm greedy, I'm in. Gimme a $500, glock reliable, colt commander.

But it sounds like we're getting something big or weird, possibly both.

They skipped the model 40 probably because people would be confused and think it referred to the caliber and not the model number.

Yep,

- G36L
- G36 8+1 .40
- G27 6+1 slimline.

Well, there's Three (3) new Glocks I'd buy.

Quick someone call Glock and tell them to stop production a Glock talk commenter doesn't agree with your decision.

With all of the .380 pocket pistols I've seen folks have and carry in my surroundings I'm not surprised if Glock comes out with the 25 and 28 model and says here finally in the US. Just what you always wanted but could never have.
Sure would like to see a Glock the size of a DB9. I'll just wait and see. If nothing fits the bill I'll get the shield 9mm instead. Even though I do carry my 19 or 27, it sure would be nice to carry something a bit smaller from time to time that was Glock reliable.
