That would be perfect!!!

Since the G22 is a .40, the G40 really should be a .22!

The G36 already is a SS .45ACP.

Is this a British or Canadian rumor?

I never thought of that... perhaps it is at the "Shotte Shouwe"?

Would an FDE gun with an FDE magazine be considered a new product??

From a technical standpoint, the polymer Glock currently uses has too much flex in it to make a pistol much smaller than the 26/27 sized pistols. Glock requires their current polymer to size ratio to maintain strength. Think in terms of a sheet of aluminum. A 1/8 inch thick piece is easy to bend, while a 3 inch piece is much harder. That is a simplified analogy, but the concept is the same.

Other manufacturers are using a reinforced polymer, H&K, Ruger, FN, S&W, XD, Kahr, etc etc. Their frames are more rigid which in turn equals a greater strength per ounce of polymer. This has allowed them to manufacture smaller frames while maintaining durability and strength. The other manufacturers above use non polymer coated magazines. This also allows the design of the frames to be smaller and thinner. Until Glock ditches the coated magazines, it will be hard for them to reduce the size of their pistols.

Glock may be able to accomplish it by using a subframe within the polymer, IE S&W, SIG. This could possibly add enough strength and rigidity to their current polymer formula.

The Glock's current iteration has basically reached it maximum design potential without changing something. They can tweak it here and there, but I wouldn't look for anything evolutionary.

This is just my opinion of course, and I am serving a grain of salt with it.

Problems

If it is like their other single stack weapon, beware, a lot of the G36's had FTF and FTE problems. Glock replaced my G36 that was 2 years old because it would not function properly after it went to the factory twice.

Have never seen a Kel-Tex frame, but have worked on Kel-Tec frames and they use a more rigid polymer also. Kel-Tec uses DuPont ST-8018 a Zytel polymer/plastic. It is considerably more rigid per ounce than the Nylon family of polymers being used by Glock. Kel-Tecs also use an aluminum sub frame to increase their overall strength.

Don't get me wrong... I want one as well. My thought was why would Glock take an existing platform, (AR15) and modify it around the Glock magazine. I would think the Austrians could come up with something better and not someone elses (Stoner) design originally designed around a rifle cartridge.

Sure, there are new/faster/better ways to do one; and I sure would love to see a simple, rugged carbine that takes GLOCK magazines, preferably something that actually comes with low-mounted, adjustable iron sights, with a fixed ejector, a Mauser extractor, and a left-sided reciprocating bolt handle.
