Glock 25

Why does Glock not import their model 25 .380? Saw one today and the bid was 1700 dollars with several days left. There must be very few here.

It does not score enough points to meet ATF import criteria. Doesn't seem like Smyrna is going to be making any, either.

Thanks for the info. Glock could probably sell a million of them.

I doubt it and so does Glock. The G25 is the exact same size/shape/weight and similar recoil to a Glock19, so there's no advantage to it over the 9mm. In fact 380 is more expensive and harder to find than 9mm, so why would a million of them be sold? In the grand scheme of things there are several other Glocks they could market which would be better...

I agree with 10mm. A G19 sized 380 but of blowback design? No way I would want or use one. I've shot a G28 and it has the same recoil characteristics as a G26. Again, no way for me.

The current trend in 380's is small, light, basically inexpensive. Most popular are the Ruger LCP and the S&W Bodyguard.
