    They need to produce some new pistols chambered in 7.62x25, .38 Super, and .45 Super.

    45 super can be shot from the G20/G21.

    A carbine is long overdue.

    Because those are really good cartridge chamberings for handguns.

    I would love to see Glock bring out a .38 Super, in an all metal gun, in polished stainless. And make it in a G17 slide length with a G19 frame size.

    But that would mean they would have to design an entirely different gun. As of now, they really only make the 1 basic gun, in 4 different sizes.

    Make it an UZI styled carbine. Then the internals remain the same. Only the furniture needs changing.

    A 7.62 x 25 would be cool.

    How about you also add (in your "open letter to Glock") to resume making extractors like they used to--about 12-15 yrs ago.

    I am going to go way out on a limb here, but I don't think Glock will be listening to this.

    People keep wanting Glock to make new things like they will be the best at everything. Look at the Glock 36. I see more complaints of that than on many common guns.

    Glock is great at double stack polymer framed pistols. They sell as many as they can make. Why would they want to mess with that?

    Look at the initial release of the Gen4 Glocks. Perfection was just a marketing slogan. Now, they have sorted the issues out with the Gen4, though not so much with the 36.

    As to unusual calibers, maybe that will be the thing for the after market to address.

    I fixed it for ya. Now Glock gives us another fat .45 and a .380
    instead of a carbine, a slim single stack 9x19, or anything else
    us Glock owners and users have been begging for going on years
    now.

    If I got to pick a new caliber to add to the Glock lineup, it would be .22mag.
