Yep. Glock is basically a one-trick pony. It's a pretty good trick, but it is still only one trick.I shot the Ruger PC9 Sunday using Glock magazines . It functioned flawlessly and was a blast to shoot . On this if they came out with one they would be 2 steps behind just like on the single stack . For a company that was so innovative when they introduced a polymer pistol they sure have been stuck in a rut and behind everyone else now in innovation .
Build you own for $700. I did.Am I alone in thinking that Glock should design and produce a 9mm carbine, or rifle? Given their legendary simplicity, reliability, and ergonomic, single basic-platform pistol design, a long gun using the same 'upper' design would've hit the shelves long ago. I always thought this was way overdue and that a lightweight carbine that uses standard Glock mech and mags would've been a 'natural progression' by now --- But Nooooooo!
I'd be the first to purchase one. I'd wager they would be flying off the shelves even faster than all the AR15's did in this current market.
Would you buy one if the price was in line with their pistolas? For the sake of debate, let's say in $1200 ballpark?
I considered one of these. However, I don't like that the outside pf the gun eventually gets covered in a big mess, from the carbon from the fired rounds. Depending on the kind of night sights you have, it could eventually mess up the painted rings around tritium...Why mess with perfection?
CAA has the Micro-Roni line of frames that allow you to turn your simple trusty Glock pistol into an SBR, or if you get a an extended barrel, it is a carbine-- that has not lost the essentials of the Glock.
They are damn near impossible to find right now. I managed to get one in the beginning of the summer. But, it wasn't easy. Beretta hadn't imported any in a while, until early this year... When the gun rush came up, the supply vanished.Cx4... Beretta makes cheap 30 round mags.
Kalashnikov (USA)I don’t understand why so many people don’t understand it would be cool to have a Glock carbine, assuming it had the same reliability as the pistols. And it’d be like shooting fish in a barrel for the company. No other option has the name and legend behind it like Gaston
This has GOT to be a troll post, just like the mall ninja thing years ago on GlockTalk. Good for a few laughs but someone will still believe it.Why won’t folks accept the fact that Gaston has a lot in common with Bill Ruger and the “change” of venturing into the carbine market won’t happen til he’s gone like Ruger starting to innovate, innovate at Ruger level for what that’s worth, after the namesake passed?
Somewhere in Austria, not here because a leak would damage the image, there is a mostly polymer, modular, multi caliber carbine. The trigger assembly section will be the serialized part so you can change calibers and barrel lengths.
The two examples are black, of course, and Alpine blue (kinda grey). The guns are too fed, like the old British Bren but can be ordered with or without your favorite combination of RDO cut and accessory rails. It will accept Glock bayonets and has a collapsible stock similar to the KelTec PMR.
While the guns will eventually be offered in the standard caliber offerings, the initial offering is in a bottlenecked 7mm cartridge based on the old Tokarev round but using a polymer, nonreloadable case.
