Stop bringing new product to the table when old issues remain. Transparency on fixes would be a start.

Could you please make a g32x, please?

Guarantee you'll see a G23X (if THAT even ever happens???????) before you see a G32X.



Personally I want to see a factory G19L (G17 upper, G19 lower) or a G26L (G19 upper, G26 lower).

If you look at that link - that is a G19 size Lower (G45) with a G17 length upper. The difference in the slide is a different configuration front to fill in the slide to frame gap, like the G48.

I think you are a little confused. The G45 uses a G17 sized full sized lower -

"The compact crossover pistol G45 in 9x19mm combines a compact slide with a full size frame " -

Here's a second link showing the G47, and also there is a G19 pictured next to it - clearly they are different size frames, the G47 having a taller, full size height frame as the G17, G19X, and G45. - https://www.militarytimes.com/off-d...new-glock-without-really-saying-anything-g47/

If I am incorrect in ALL of this, PLEASE someone correct me, but this is how I understand the frame configuration of the G47????

I guess I misunderstood the G47. Not near as appealing now.

The G47 frame DOES have the shorter dust cover ONLY of the G19 frame, but it is still a full size G17/G19X/G45 height frame (so it can FULLY enclose G17 length mags - 17 rounds) at the end of the day.

Apparently you CAN also put the Gen 5 G45/G19 length upper OR the full length G47 upper on the G47 frame though -

"According to The Firearm Blog, although the G47 uses a G17 barrel, the G17 slide is not compatible with the new gun. However, the end user can swap the G47 slide for the shorter G19 slide on preference. "

https://www.militarytimes.com/off-d...new-glock-without-really-saying-anything-g47/


So basically with the G47 you can have a full sized (both upper and lower) G47, OR a basically "G45 sized gun" (G19 length upper on a full size G17 lower).


I think that is where the confusion may have been?



..................not to mention the difficulty of finding a G47 in the first place as a non-LEO issued gun. It's do-able, but not easy to get one, and also I am sure at a higher price than a Gen 5 G19, G17, or even a G45.

Gen5 19 without the ambi slide-stop, please (and no, I don’t want to simply snip off one wing of a pre-existing ambi one).
