    357!Sig offerings have really dropped in recent years. Sig themselves barely even support it.

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

    HaHa - When has GLOCK admitted anything??? They will fix it, but never tell you what they fixed or admit to any issue.

    Correct, but we continue to do business? Says something about our character.

    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).

    Looks like you're in luck with the G47.

    Sorry, I meant a " G19L (G17 upper, G19 lower) "

    That's what a G47 is.

    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 " -

    https://us.glock.com/en/pistols/g45




    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????

    No new models, there are enough.
    Make every model frame available in ALL color options.

    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).
