Glock is a very successful company. They will continue to be successful, but I do think they are feeling some heat from the competition. The new G41 coming with all the back strap options, including the beavertail indicates to me that Glock is following on some cues from the competition. The G42 seems to be about 4 years late to me as most companies are now making 9mm pistols the same size as the G42. I do think that the G42 will sell well and leave many people asking for 9/40 versions of the gun. The gun will sell though because it is after all, a Glock. Perhaps this is a sign that Glock is developing their product. Not adding or removing finger grooves, add a rail and change a recoil system and call it new. In the past few years Glock has introduced some guns that people have been asking for. Who thinks Glock will expand their single stack line and add G19/26 sized single stacks in 9mm and maybe 40?
