    Glock already has a 6 inch barrel for that frame, all they need to do is extend it with a cut out, just like a 17L or a 24.

    If you're designing a new round, make it a straight wall case too. Maybe a .38 SS (super short) :supergrin:

    We don't need another boutique round we need a firearm that is capable of the current popular rounds in the size everyone wants. I don't want another GAP or 5.7 handgun I want a single-stack, sub-compact 9mm in as small of a package as Glock can make to compete with the Shield, XDs and similar firearms because if Glock enters that segment it wouldn't even be a competition.

    Yes. I should have said straight wall and rimless, but I was thinking more a slightly shorter 9x23mm Winchester than a .38 Super.

    As cool as it would be, I have to agree with Jer. Stick with the current calibers. Let's hope for more powder improvements that will continue to increase 9x19 velocity without crossing the +p pressure threshold.

    I think the biggest market right now is the XDs and M&P Shield market. Pretty much no one has released a problem free gun in that size, with a track record similar to say the introduction of the G26. And I'm talking overall track records, which doesn't mean a lot of people haven't had good luck with them. They both have recall warnings listed in the latest American Rifleman. It seems the jump from the sub compact to slim subcompact has many challenges.

    right single stack 9mm i think goood plan

    if they make a gen 4G (or 5 or what ever) G21 G30 and G36 make them all have the same locking block so you coudl take the slim G21 (if made) slide and have a 30L and 36L

    the9x23 thought is jsut as an option on the G21 30 and 36 for max rounds in a mag that has to be deep for the 45acp anyhow

    just thinking that 10 rounds of 9x23 in a G36 woudl be great

    I think the 9x19 has reached its limit and for me that limit is too low. To get more performance you just have to have more case capacity and a higher pressure limit would be good too. The .38 Super has the same pressure limit as the 9x19 and it is its extra case capacity that reduces the initial pressure spike and lets it maintain a higher average pressure. A 9x22mm would provide enough headroom for a fairly wide range of loadings. The 9x23mm Winchester does that as well but Winchester have a hold on it and they have done a very poor marketing and development job with it.

    Methinks the small .380 is new and exciting - as of five years ago. Glock may best target the XDS sized market with a similar 45ACP...Cheers.

    NEWS ALERT:

    Can't mention any names (Guy in Red Suit with White Beard), but the word is the Glock 40 designation is assigned to a new .44 Automag pistol which will be a single stack with 7 round mags.
    It will be released at 4:41 am on Black Friday (This year kids!) in Smyrna. First 2000 people in the door get one for free with a canned food donation valued at $800.

    See you there.

    And I thought that Glock was going to introduce the new 50GI for the 21 frame. That's what I get for thinkin.

    Nah, more likely the .50 GAP for the G37 Frame. :tongueout:

    41, 42, 43, 44, whatever. All I need is to figure out is how to hold on to my G29 this time around. Dadgum dollar bills keep getting in the way of that!


    Although, a 50 GAP does sound quite interesting...

    IMHO, considering the Glock 22 is in .40 SW, I think it would only be fitting that the Glock 40 be .22 LR. :D

    Does this mean you will have to show a valid competition license, or ATF creds to buy?

    They don't have one, yet, or possibly ever.

    Sounds like the 41 would also make a sweet platform for the 45 Super-
