I heard Glock had finally really perfected their product line.

It now includes steel guns, useable external controls, ergonomics slightly better than a 2"x4" and a grip angle suitable for more than three percent of the worlds population. In contrast, of course, to everything they've made previously.

Appears legit; Glock's Facebook page references it in official posts:

https://www.facebook.com/GLOCK

Internet speculation leans heavily toward single stack in either compact .45ACP or subcompact 9mm, and the ever longed for, never realized Glock carbine.

Hapworth
January 4, 2013, 10:34 AM
Others have noted a close look at the "Big Announcement" word puzzle on Glock's FB seems to have the phrase "online community" jumbled up, leading some to speculate this is nothing more than an official Glock forum launch.

The letdown would be similar to the last time Glock had a "major announcement" and it turned out to be their 25 anniversary.

They already have a single stack 45 - the 36
A single stack 9 would be nice ONLY if they make the slide as thin as a Kahr

Glock could change the stippling on their slide and call it a new generation. Wonder if the Gen 5 will be a downgrade like the 3 to 4 was with the same QC issues at the beginning?

My money is on a sub-compact single-stack 9mm. That market is absolutely booming and Glock would be crazy not to grab their piece of the pie.

Well, Gen4 was certainly more than a change in stippling, but your point about the problems in the early Gen4s is well taken: Glock rolled a product out without the benefit of full R&D testing and paid a heckuva price for it, money and reputation-wise.

Hopefully they learned a lesson from that...

Just one thing I noticed - right before their announcement of their - er, upcoming announcement, they replaced their cover photo with a puzzle piece partially filled in. I'm guessing that is alluding to their new product:

Not to derail the topic, but what's the fascination/desire for a single-stack 9mm? I thought the whole point of a double stack 9 was that it wasn't that much wider than a single stack 45. I have a G26 and it fits both IWB and in a pocket holster just fine, and I've never once thought it was anywhere close to too wide for my grip.

You may not think so, but a lot of people don't like double stacks, and find them too wide for their hands or to comfortably carry.

Note that when "wonder nines" took off most states didn't have concealed carry available. Handguns were either for the range, the nightstand, or for open carry. The concealed carry movement has changed a lot of the criteria that people have for weapons. Size most definitely matters.

Different people have different tolerances as to pistol width for IWB carry, and tiny differences on paper can make for huge differences in actual feel. You may be able to comfortably IWB carry a G26 but I certainly can't - its just too wide. My LCP for example feels wonderful IWB but my Makarov that I sometimes carry (in a Theis holster which is pretty good) still feels like I'm shoving a brick between my pants - and its even a single stack.

I am looking at their Facebook page, and I don't see where they promise a new product. They just promise big news. As mgmorden posted above, they have a cryptic facebook profile picture to match. I'm not sure if it's the only possibility, but it certainly looks like it might say "The Ultimate Online Community" with what might be a "sign up" in the bottom left, and possibly a "share" about middle of the page. It may not be a product at all in the firearm sense.

Speculation is its nothing more than their usual attempts at something "new" as in mix match their parts bins and designate new numbered gun.

On their teaser, notice the upper right. Appears to be a new compact handgun. Dimensionally it looks like a single-stack to me, based on the grip to trigger-guard ratio and the light-rail width.

Please, please be a full ambi 34 so I can shoot a Glock again.

But it won't be... after witnessing the success of the Shield, if they come out with a new gun I would guess subcompact single stack 9 like everyone else.

xwingband
January 4, 2013, 12:03 PM
If it's not a singe stack 9... they're dumb.

For those saying a 1911... if it doesn't have a safety and is striker fired, how can you say it's anything 1911 related? I can see saying something like the HK USP's and HK45 is a polymer 1911 of sorts, but Glock is not going to add a safety or suddenly make a hammer fire pistol.

Skribs
January 4, 2013, 12:09 PM
Single stack, sub-compact 9 seems most likely, but honestly if they don't make it thin then it won't sell very well. The G36 is significantly bulkier than the XDs, for example (although the XDs did come out later). By my estimate, if they do the same thing with the G40 (if the G40 is the single stack 9), it would be about 1.04" wide, which would be a lot wider than a Shield and significantly wider than the LC9.

The other thing that nobody in this thread has said is that the G40 would be a .22, which would be ironic since the G22 is a .40.

My guess is that it will be a full size gun. The teaser shows a smooth trigger which is something that they only use on full size guns. It will also have a rail so it's doubtful that it will be a subcompact model.

IIRC, serrated trigger was done for import points on smaller guns. Glock just recently started doing a fair bit of domestic production, so they don't necessarily need the import points and can use whatever trigger they want.

And speaking of that import situation, another possibility is a US release of the Glock 25 (though I kinda doubt they'd make this much stink over that).

I have Glocks - I love them, I'm not a Glock hater.

I know there are folks out there who absolutley love their G26, but the quest to get it accepted as a pocket pistol is just not going to work. The Glock G26 fan boys do 1 of 3 things

They drop a G26 into a cargo pocket and declare it a pocket pistol

or

They drop it into some work pants type work wear that has larger front pockets than say the average Levi or Lee jeans or cotton Dockers

or

They cram that pistol into a normal front pocket, with it bulging out all over and peeking out the top, but because it's "in" the pocket they declare it a pocket pistol.

If the G26 was everything that it's fans think it is then S&W Shields wouldn't be selling like hotcakes, and Luger LC9s wouldn't have sold like they do, and people wouldn't have flocked to the Kahr PM9 and CM9, and other slim nines.

They updated their puzzle with a few more pieces. It's looking from what I can see like it truly is going to be an online community site.

I have got to say that if it turns out to actually that, this will have been the DUMBEST advertising campaign I've ever seen. I mean bad. Really bad. Like someone in their marketing department should be fired bad. The only firearms community (as evidenced by this very site and many more like it) is already quite well served.

I hate Glocks. They are a one-trick pony, but even I admit they do that one trick very, very well. I've encouraged many, many people to buy Glocks because of the simplicity and availability of parts, although there is less reason to do so now with the M&P.

The funny thing about Glock is that you sort of have to buy into their way of thinking. As one poster above said about the G26, "people shove it in their cargo pocket and call it a pocket pistol." And they are right. Glock owners will conform to the pistol rather than demanding the pistol conform to them. This is why they deal with the crazy grip angle, the fat grip, and the crappy stock sights. And if you don't like it, well: "NEIN! Das Glock est Perfection, Ju est zee problem!"

So I think Glock knows that its market will do just fine if they don't introduce a slim carry pistol. There is a reason why everybody owns a G19. It holds a good amount of ammunition, conceals up pretty well under a loose t-shirt or sport coat, and goes bang when you pull the trigger. For most people who are not enthusiasts, it works pretty darn well. EDIT: Even for people who are enthusiasts, it works pretty darn well.

So I doubt that Glock will introduce a thinner pistol. It would be a solution in search of a problem and lots of retooling when they've already done a good job at making their customers conform.

Quite possible. The amount of criticism they were receiving on Facebook was unreal. Not that a Glock forum wouldn't be useful (though I think its adequately covered already), but it's the type of thing that could just be announced with no buildup. When they do a "secret" countdown customers expect a little more.

Hammerdown77
January 8, 2013, 04:11 PM
I'd heard you could do that, but I didn't see the point. The grip frame is still as thick as the slide of the standard G30, so what do you gain? No G36 holster would work because the trigger guard and dust cover would be too wide.

Unless this is a whole new frame that is between the G36 and G30 in thickness...

Skribs
January 8, 2013, 04:17 PM
Glock 17 was the first pistol (17th patent by Gaston), I don't think they'd retrofit those numbers. If it was a brand new pistol, it would be G40. If it's a retrofit of an older pistol it would be a next Gen option, or maybe something like a Small Frame.

What's the hottest selling pistol these days? Pocket .380s. The Glock 40 will be a single stack, 6+1 (optional 7-rd extended mag) .380 Auto. It'll essentially be a scaled down G36, almost exactly the same size as the DB 380 but reliable, like a Glock. And it'll have traditional Glock sights.

So from what I can tell on their facebook page Glock wasn't referring to a new handgun. They released a new website/tool called Glock ID, where you can do all sorts of stupid stuff. Like store the Glocks you own in a virtual safe, track your range time, and earn points to get "Glock rewards."

This social networking forum was their big announcement but the reaction on Facebook and Glocktalk was so overwhelmingly negative and mocking that Glock is desperately trying to find something else that they can promote as new. Glock is totally coasting and it appears that they will never release anything new as long as Gaston is running the show.

Though it'd be the 40, 41, 42, and 43.

I wonder if it might be a Gen 4 G30. If I'm not mistaken, they haven't made that yet, and if it truly was just the forum, and they are scrambling to come up with something, that would be a pretty logical and easy step to make in a hurry. Might have already been on the drawing board and is just getting pushed sooner.

Does a 1911 count?

I would also love the same - a modern gun in 7.62X25. Not that I have anything against 357SIG.

I never heard of the 9x25 dillin. A 1911 would do the trick :-) I don't have any issues with the 357 sig either. I have a few guns in 7.62x25 and have a lot of ammo stock up.

I always see Glock as the Harley Davidson of the firearms world. A dominant market position, a fair number of haters but a larger group of fanboys who would chew lead to get the next model - be it a G40 or a FatTailWideBoyHardSomething. They both do a lot of customer studies and a thoughtful bit of marketing.
Both will rarely if ever step outside of their brand association - so no 1911, hammer model, carbine, etc. just as Harley will not build a high-revving superbike (the Porsche co-designed model notwithstanding but not exactly a towering success).
They move at their own pace, seemingly unaffected by external trends or competitors. But it likely does make sense for them to produce a single stack 9/40. A thinner CCW version of the G26/27. I don't know if they are losing business against others in this piece of the market, but there is a lot of money to be made here, the model totally fits in their design center and sooner or later it would seem like a slimmer version of an existing model will be produced.
At least that's my take.

Interesting cartridge. In a compensated gun, you had to craft the load very closely or you'd get pronounced negative muzzle movement upon firing. The gun would actually nose dive. But once you had a balanced load, the round was absolutely awesome.

Well, even though they may not have intended to do so, Glock has perfected something with this ad campaign- disappointing their customers.

They had already been doing that for certain LE contracts from my understanding, and it wasn't much of a secret.

I for one am thoroughly underwhelmed by these announcements. Something actually new would be nice. A single-stack 9mm, a US release of the Glock 25 - just SOMETHING.

It's still anti-climactic.

but I'm sure if they offered it in OD Green and DC Brown that it would raise the excitement level of Glock Nation sufficiently..

I don't understand why they couldn't do it in a Gen 4... Get it together, Glock.

coolluke01
January 14, 2013, 09:29 PM
The 30S is just a segway into getting rid of the 30SF. The 30sf in a gen 4 would just be a 30. I think they still have lots of old stock of the 30SF frame and once they are gone the 30s will be in Gen 4 and the 30 SF will just be a 30 again.

There still is one more announcement to come. Maybe the single stack 9? Don't hold your breath...

I like your thinking, BDS. Also, make the slide release something actually usable by one hand from an ordinary human. I can't speak about Glock, but the one on my M&P is spongy, small, and hard to activate.

The funny thing is the Glock that I would want isn't even made by Glock...half Lone Wolf and half Guncrafter Industries. But it would be aftermark parts designed to work with the other half of a Glock.

No it doesn't

You don't get to speak down on the rest of the gun community as a whole from on high in their unenlightened in all things 10mm squalor like you would if you had a 10mm CARBINE

No glock doesn't need to make a 10mm carbine because the rest of us PCC fans don't want 10 fanbois invading that niche too.

The Ruger .44 auto carbines do way more than a 10mm carbine can do, for hunting purposes. I like 10mm, but it simply cannot compare to .44 mag as a big game round.

I'd like to see Glock build the Baikal MP412 break open .357 revolver. New, modern, and just enough cheap plastic to keep Gaston happy :D
I'd buy one.
If Glock autos actually fit my hands and were ambidextrous, I'd buy one of them, too.

I had a ruger 44 carbine with a factory milled sight receiver I lost it in a trade. I was sorely disappointed when ruger didn't upscale their police carbine to 10 mm but try finding one now 10mm is ballistically about the equivalent to the old 41 mag and would not have the feeding problems of a rimed round but looking at the possibly of the new gun ban looks like I'm stick with a mosin
