    Ok, I have your attention now - and would like to ask if any of you would be interested in a new series of Glock Slimline pistols. I would like to see that concept fleshed out (from the present G36), to include pistols in 9mm, 357SIG, 40 S&W, and 45GAP. Size of guns/mag capacity would have to be finalized, but just wondering if any of you might be tempted enough to purchase one of these types.

    I realize that Glock had some initial difficulty with the G36, but that seems to have been ironed out, and mine "carries better" than any of my other four Glocks. I like that slim width!

    I arrived at the Slimline model concept when thinking of potential new Glock products. The Austrians seem to have all other reasonable pistol configurations covered, and many other firms are issuing "slim-concept" models. So why not Glock?

    Your honest opinions will be read and appreciated. Cheers.

    I always figured that Glock made enough profit with their current offering that they didn't much care what niche markets wanted. But then they jumped on the replaceable backstrap bandwagon, so what do I know?

    With other big names throwing down the pocket 9 gauntlet, it's hard to imagine that Glock won't start looking into it in a few years. The question then becomes, is the Smyrna facility up to producing an entirely new gun? (because import restrictions would likey prevent single-stack 9mm's from being produced in Austria to sell here)

    Thanks for the input. I figured that Glock's high profits would perhaps encourage them to take the risk on a potentially low-selling new model line-up. The "king of the hill" can always survive higher risks than the "up and comers." Besides, I know at least Danny R. and I would purchase a Slimline 45GAP. Cheers.

    Everyone has been clamoring for a single stack 9/40 Glock.

    tuica,

    I think that I'd only be interested in a slimline 9X19 or even a .380 ACP. The other calibers are just fine with the double-stack configuration.

    My new favorite carry is the G39, and I'm very happy with the G26, G27, G30SF, and G33, too.

    If it would be a pocket-sized gun, I would be all over that, and it would have to go up against my tried-and-true SIG P238HD.

    To the OP's question, my answer is "yes"

    I'd like to see a slimline single stack if they work on narrowing the slide. Can't see much sense in a slim frame with a standard width slide on top of it.

    I'd like to see Glock stop being cheap (even if they have to raise prices) and go back to the old extractors and be done with this erratic ejection crap rather than make a new model anything, including any slimlines or carbines.

    Glock is already behind the curve. The M&P Shield is already out.

    +1. It amazes me that for years people have put down 1911's because many believe you have to tweak them to get them to work.

    There are many on this forum who have said this then later talk about stoning the Glock extractors, changing connectors, polishing everything, adjusting this and that to get them to work properly. Sounds like tweaking to me.

    If they had a slim 9/.40 I wouldn't have had to buy a Shield. So yes I would absolutely buy a slim one from Glock.

    I wish they would make a 9/40/357 version that had a slide that was 1" wide and a slightly thinner grip. Keep it around 20oz to help with control, good sights, rtf frame, capacity in the 6-9 range.
    I know other manufacturers make these but I'll stick with my glocks and buy a slim gun when they make one or never if they dont
