    I just got a Glock 24C. New in Box. Haven't shot it yet. I wondered if anyone else, out there. Had one.

    And any thoughts as well.

    Plan on it. Haven't done it yet; it would be the first year. My concern is, it appears obsolete. Many have switched over to the 35.

    Is that a problem? Depending on where you go. Naturally.

    The gun itself is sensational. Why did Glock stop production? IPSC demands, size concerns? Frankly, I find it sad. The 24 may be. The most impressive Glock I've seen. I wanted to have one. Before Gen 4 mania, made models like these, impossible to find.

    As the Boy Scouts say, "Always come prepared."

    Great purchase! Probably the most intimidating Glock in existence(except longslide G20).

    Thanks. I know.

    The 20C is equally impressive. Especially with Trijicon Nights Sights, and an extended mag release. Finding ammo for it... Is the problem. Protection and Planking. That's the problem.

    As for the 24, does anyone know the story? Of what happened. I'd like to know.

    The G24/G24C and G17L seem to made in small batches every two years or so. While they are great looking pistols, they are too long for certain shooting events (such as USPSA) and thus aren't as popular as the G35/G34s (which is the longest a Glock can go to stay legal in those type shoots). Then, when you talk about the average pistol shooter, they generally stay with guns that are a little handier or priced better (the G24/G24C/G17L are generally well over $150 more than the regular/compact/subcompact guns). All of these points lead to expensive uncommon target guns that just don't pull in the revenues for the company, IMHO.

    I myself would love to have a G24C but it just hasn't presented itself in a trade opportunity. :(

    So... It's an occasional production model. That comes in and out vogue. When another bunch is released. Thanks.

    You can shoot ASPSA matches with it, just in limited division.

    Not sure about IDPA. I know they have that box the gun must fit in (G24 won't).

    Thanks. Yeah. I heard about the box. Well. I guess that means a G35 at some point. But really. I couldn't resist this. If anything, it's a keepsake and a##kicker. And for that, it's priceless.

    Ok, sorry, but it is time for a question. When I first saw you say 24, it was like the first time i saw G18.....I was going yeah, right, that isn't a model. i went and checked Glock's website, and the 24 isn't on there. What is the 24? i haven't heard of it.

    Thanks...
    :dunno:

    Thanks all. I just got done reading the history of it. That looks like a pretty bad @$$ pistol.

    I need to say it again, I love Glock and the things they do for Gun Aficionados

    Its no longer in production, and it hasn't been on the Glock page for some time. It was the precursor to the Glock 35. It was Glock's first competition pistol chambered in 40 S&W.

    Here's a link to more info: http://www.remtek.com/arms/glock/model/40/24/index.htm

    Hope that helps.

    there is a dealer in the firearms listings section with a few of them for sale. If anyone is interested in picking one up.
