    Reaaaaaally cool trip!! Talked with a couple of techs and a local Pickens Co. Sheriff Deputies while waiting. I took a few pics and waited on my G22 Gen3 to be serviced. I bought a lightly used police trade in for a good price last summer. They had the 8lb connector and NY1 trigger installed. :shocked:

    He Dan (Bostonian sounds like JFK) took it in and restored my pistol to the stock settings. It's been test fired, all springs replaced, cleaned and lubed! The cleaner lube smells like windex afterwards.:tongueout:

    I got a Glock Camo Cap, & a Glock Key Ring to Boot!


    Here's the Meat of the Story I know you guys want... Dan CONFIRMED these rumors are TRUE!

    -There WAS a Glock .223/5.56 carbine being developed and a prototype WAS BUILT. However, it was a bullpup design and they were told the US LEO market is most proficient on the AR/M-4 platform.

    -There ARE current designs for a AR-Style rifle in the works, but not in the near future. Prototypes are being worked on as I type..:supergrin:

    -There WILL be a Glock .22lr pistol coming to market Dan said VERY SOON!:cool:

    Really fun trip and I hope to bring other Glocks for service there in the years to come!!:wavey:

    Fingers crossed for the AR... I have a feeling it will be either revolutionary or "meh", hoping for the first!

    A Glock .22LR would be an instant hit.

    Bullpup would have been cool, but I would prefer a carbine that accepts the Glock mags instead of a 223/5.56.
    A Glock 22LR might be pretty cool, but how do you get Glock reliability in a 22 semi auto? (22 auto's have always been picky eaters)

    I'm not sure what to say to that other then "DUH". Seriously...they were working on a bullpup and then realized the US LEO market wouldn't be interested.

    Seems pretty stupid to try and field another M4 variant. BFD! The bullpup if it were lighter makes more sense, look at the Tavor. Heck US law enforcement was most proficient with revolvers until Glock came along with their striker gun too!

    A Glock rimfire pistol would be very interesting.
