    Has anyone heard, read or seen any information about Glock ever producing a mid size 10mm? I can't understand why they produce mid size pistols like the Glock 19, 23, and 32 for other caliber models, but not the 10mm?:steamed:

    They have been producing one for years, it called the G29. Glock may call the G29 a "subcompact" but in reality it is not. The G29 is closer in size to the 19,23 and 32 and it is wider than all 3 to boot.

    The Glock 29 is exactly the same size as the Glock 30 in barrel
    length, width, length and height.

    The Glock 29 is just a little bit heavier than the Glock 30, due to less metal cut from the barrel.

    The Glock 29 is the mid size 10mm that you're looking for.

    How often would you shoot without a mag in? I think that it was smart design on the G30/29 gives you the option to get a 9rnd mag in the g30 but also have the extended grip with the 10 rounders.

    I agree with everyone above. The Glock 29 is essentially the dimensions of the 19, albeit a bit heavier fully loaded. I'd hold one, see what you think of it, and then decide if something more is needed. The 29 is the "mid-size" option you're looking for.

    Cut from another older thread. It's a G19 vs a G30, but obviously the G29 is the same size as the G30.

    See for yourself, it's certainly not a subcompact.

    Does the m29 also have the slight grip extension on the ten round mag for the pinky?

    A single stack like the 36 only a full size grip like the 19/23 would be awesome and call it PERFECTION.

    there are extensions to make it just like the 30 mag, im not quite sure why they didn't put the extension on it factory like the 30s.

    It seems like Glock was heading that way when they came up with the G36, but I think that turned out to be quite a lemon, so they decided to start making the GAP series and then decided to fix what wasn't broken. (4th gen) So now they have to unfix what they broke so I doubt we will see a G40 anytime soon. They don't get their act back together there won't be a Glock to go on.

    I'd like to see some single stack thin framed G36 like guns with the "Glock Perfection" I used to know. Make a single stack thin framed 10mm, and then a series of smaller framed Glocks to give Kahr PX9/40 and the S&W Shield a run for their money.
