    A thread was started in the 10mm forum about Glock possibly coming out with a .223 small carbine rifle.

    Can anyone elaborate on the subject?

    Thanks!

    It's pure speculation. I would be intrigued, but I would rather Glock come out with a single stack baby Glock, myself...

    9mm Carbine would be awesome, I would be all over that.

    Why? What could a carbine do that a pistol couldn't?

    I'd rather have the more powerful rifle caliber...in a rifle rather than a weaker pistol caliber...in a rifle.

    That's just me though.

    A pistol caliber carbine doesn't hit any harder, but it is more accurate. A 50 yard or 100 yard hit is easy. Try that with a pistol for the average trained shooter.

    I would like a Glock 9mm carbine, but it would have to do something that the Keltec doesn't to sell for more than a comparable price. If it is Glock's version of a Beretta Storm then I really do not see the point. However, if Glock offered an 10mm carbine, I would buy it in a second along with a G20.

    A Glock rifle or carbine, pistol caliber or otherwise, would need to be something pretty spectacular to get a foothold in an already saturated market.

    Rumors have been around for at least a decade about various Glock carbines - and so far, they are nothing more than rumors. I heard about this supposed .223 carbine as well.

    Nobody at the Glock booth at the SHOT show a couple weeks ago seemed to know anything about it. If it does exist at all (and I rather doubt it), it is probably a ways off.

    I also agree that 1)The .223 market is saturated and 2) pistol caliber carbines are falling out of favor, and for good reason.
