Absolutely not. What makes the Glock 19 such a great pistol is the balance between being big enough for uniformed duty, yet small enough for CCW...The balance between having a high enough capacity of rounds on board without becoming overly large for concealed carry. If you take away any one of those components, the Glock 19 loses its luster.

I'd find a Glock 19 to be too large of a gun for a capacity of only 7-8+1 rounds. Others may like the idea though.

It would probably be an 8+1 gun. Imagine the shootability of a Glock 19 in a slim package for carry. I think it would be popular. The Kahr CW series, Shield, xDs, 43, PPS are all very popular guns. I don't think a slightly larger gun that you can get your whole hand on in a size package that is already hugely popular would fail.

There will be those that will like this model and those that won't. Although a different platform, there are 1911s in 9mm that meet this criteria. One thing is that it will be lighter than a 1911 and probably a lot cheaper. So there may be a market for it, but maybe not very big. For me it's intriguing but not a sure bet.

If what you are wanting is a larger version of the 43, with a similar feel and grip (i.e. no finger grooves), then I would be interested in that. I already carry my 43 with TT+2 magazines so I have 8+1 available now. A 10+1 single stack 19 would be nice.

Of course not. There is no demand for something like that IMO.

The market is flooded with +2 grip extensions for the Glock 43 as is. I see no reason why Glock shouldn't make an 8+1 single stack with a 4 inch barrel.

No. Pretty much already there with Springfield's XDS 4.0. With a 9 round magazine, it has basically the same profile as the 19 only much thinner.
Right. But some of us would prefer this size package in a Glock.

Would you buy a Glock 19 sized single stack with a 7/8+1 capacity to compliment the 43?
Absolutely not. If you are going to carry a gun like that you might as well go all the way and get a purse and a sex-change operation to go along with it. :supergrin:

I really like my 19 and feel I shoot it pretty well. But I also like my 43 and feel I shoot that well too. They each fill a very different niche for me.

Since I live in California my 19 is already capped at 10+1 and I use MagGuts OEM +1 inserts and ETS 7 round magazines so my 43 holds 7+1. So the difference is more about form factor than capacity for me.

The harder choice for me would be if my 42 could magically carry 10+1 without significantly changing its footprint compared to my 43 with its 7+1 capacity. The higher capacity would start to make up for the difference in caliber.

No. The G19 is the best all around pistol. I would have no use for the single stack version. As said, I can add Taran tactical pads to increase capacity of my G43.

Not going to happen from Glock. They won't even bring their mythical "Gen 5" to the public market.

If you want a single stack, close to G19 sized pistol, wait until later this year and pick up a new Avidity PD10. I was going to go this route but I had a chance to go a slightly different direction with my carry situation. That however, is a different thread in the General Firearms forum. Will post that up when I have a couple of decent pics for you all.

I agree because their marketing strategy seems to be marketing stuff to military and law enforcement agencies first and then to general sales. And I do not see that being a desirable choice for that market.

.. They won't even bring their mythical "Gen 5" to the public market.

....
In the last few days there have been some credible reports here by guys who have seen and shot a Gen5. Perhaps in a month or so we will see.

I'm happy with my gen2 G-19 like it is, and I have an Officer Size 1911 in 45acp.
It might be popular and have a following, like the G-36.
It might be just a flash in the pan too.
My G-23 is my main carry, and sometimes the G-19.
