Considering that Gaston Glock is 85 years old and is estranged from his heirs who are suing him for control of the company, and he has no top key executives who can run the company after he's gone, like Bill Ruger did, The future of the Glock handguns that we all know and love is uncertain. I don't mean that in the sense that there will be no more Glocks, because whoever takes control of the company when Gaston Glock passes, would be foolish to mess with the success of such a profitable company, but I'm thinking in terms of innovation. Hopefully whoever runs the parent company in Austria will allow Glock USA the freedom to respond to the American market and will be able to market guns without finger grooves and maybe even affordable carbines. In the case of Sturm,Ruger Inc, since Bill Ruger died the company has been more innovative than ever before, but Sturm Ruger inc had several key executives who were real "Gun Guys", and ther was alos Bill Ruger's son, William B. Ruger, Jr., but who retired and resigned as Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer effective February 28, 2006 and also resigned as Chairman of the Board and Board Member of the Sturm, Ruger Board of Directors, earlier in February 13th of that year. Here is an article written up in Anti-gun Bloomberg news about the Glock family lawsuit, that nonetheless has some detailed information about the ongoing lawsuit, and another little tidbit that I happened to find in Wikipedia which explains why unlike Bill Ruger, Gaston Glock has no top executives that he can trust. currently there is a new CEO and other top officers at Glock USA but the is no one but Gaston running Glock Central in Austria.

In 1999, Charles Ewert attempted to murder Gaston Glock after Glock asked for a meeting regarding an accusation of embezzlement. Ewert was convicted of attempted murder along with an accomplice for his involvement. In April 2012, Paul Jannuzzo, the former CEO of US subsidiary Glock, Inc., was convicted of racketeering regarding his involvement in an embezzlement scheme against the company.
