    April fools!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It would sell like hot cakes but Glock is too scared to branch out and offer new innovative designs. Glock is too comfortable selling the same basic reliable 20 year old handgun design. Can I blame them? Nah, why branch out? Ride this sucker til the wheels fall off.

    Yes, it might sell well in Europe but not in the USA, because due to The Gun Control Act of 1968, Glock could not export them to the USA.

    they may not be doing it because it might be too hard to import one to the U.S. the G26 barely passes as it is. thinner = less weight = less points = sorry you cant import that

    They have the facilities to make frames in the US. The rest is just parts and AFAIK, could be imported, no?

    They could build one in Smyrna, just could not use Tenafer, the chemicals can not be imported, they could use melonite, a 68 hardness, on Rockwell hrc scale they use it already, so does S&W.

    Supply 10 shot magazines that fit flush, the spare takes two extra rounds.

    But slim! Still a holster weapon, a perfect fit for ITW holster. One calibre only 9mm.The diameter of the bullet calls the shots on slim (pun intended)
    but really why? A 16 round Glock 19 hides on me.

    It is funny how Walther and S&W are able to import their single stack "26 and 27" look a likes.

    mixflip i saw this video the other day and when I saw the title of this thread I thought it was the story to the video. I know you meant this as a joke but you might be on to something.

    If it was true I wouldn't buy it unless it was DAO.

    Yes, they CAN do "tenifer" in the U.S. They just can't call it that. Why? Ask Durferrit. They own it, and give it different names in different markets. Tenifer is the EXACT SAME as Melonite, Tufftride, QPQ.

    Don't believe me? Go to Durferrit's site and look at the bottom of page 15 and you will see the following:

    "The TUFFTRIDE® process is known in English-speaking
    and Asian countries under that name, in Europe and
    German-speaking countries as TENIFER® and in the
    USA as MELONITE®. TUFFTRIDE®, QPQ®, TENIFER®
    and MELONITE® are registered trademarks of Durferrit
    GmbH."

    http://www.durferrit.de/media/pdf/Tenifer_QPQ_eng.pdf

    Also, Glock could build such a weapon if technically feasible and if they chose to in Smyrna, Georgia. It isn't subject to import rules if not imported.
