    I can only hope that these 4th generation Glocks go over well. So well, in fact, that maybe people will trade their 2nd generation models in for them. Then I will have plenty of 2nd generation models to choose from.

    I think the adjustable backstrap will be a big bonus for many folks. I personally like my gen III Glock grips just as they are. However, the majority of the complaints I have heard from people about Glock has been about the grip.

    I have the same size hand every day. Why would I need an adjustable grip on a handgun?

    One size does not fit all. Nothing fits me worse than a Glock, I'd look forward to one with a different grip!

    I love the RTF frames. The finger grooves are actually smaller. I get a better grip on the frame than with a standard 3rd gen glock. Plus, the texture is much better. No need for a rubber grip.

    Hopefully its fast to change out and you could swap it out and let you g/f, wife, brother, sister, mom,dad whoever shoot it at the range more comfortably.

    Recently picked up an RTF2 G17....I love the feel of that frame.

    I am waiting to see the end product. It does seem promising though.

    I think the interchangable grip panels will be a big selling point for Glock. I would like to see them make a CCW model that wasn't so 'brickish' in size. A different grip angle would be good as well. I guess it wouldn't be a Glock then would it?

    Guess I'll stick to my M&P's. They were engineered for my shooting hand position. We are fortunate to have so many quality handgun choices to make. Everyone should be able to find one that suits their particular needs.

    My problem with Glocks has never been the grip itself, though I think that will be a nice feature. I've always had a problem with the grip angle. When I draw and point, the gun is always above target.

    Maybe they will all be single stack so they will fit my hand,

    and hopefully they keep RTF as an option and dont make it standard. Its OK but Ill take the standard grip thank you.

    It certainly is a more aggressive angle than most. It took me a while to get used to it, but now I prefer it. I really like the low slide axis and steep angle for recoil control. But then again, this is really a matter personal taste... thats is the beauty of free-market capitalism. If it did not exist, we would all have to carry the same gun. Or perhaps no gun at all.

    If everyone else on Earth had the same size hands, you might have a valid point.

    The "correct grip angle" is the one you are used to.

    there is a hint of the new design in the the newest edition of the NRA's 'America's First Freedom."

    The quote is:

    Glock is considering other areas of the firearm industry beyond pistols, and the company plans to offer a new product, what Dorsey (Glock VP) calls the next generation of Glock pistols, to the commercial market at the 2010 SHOT show."

    I like my G23 just fine and can't wait to see what they have up their sleeve.

    It's good to see that Glock has a sense of humor and that they're still working to improve their product.

    I guess they finally listened to almost everyone on the planet who has handled their product. Glocks are great guns no doubt. Ergonomic that is a different story. I think The xd (which I prefer), m&p and other striker fired poly guns are giving them some real competition and forced them to make the change. I wonder if the will increase their magazine capacity as well to regain some of their lost market share.

    Regardless, it will be interesting to see what they have developed. I loved my glock until I used an Xd, so I wonder what the new gun will be like.
