    .38 Super, in the larger .45/10mm-sized frame, preferably with a long-slide version available, too, would get my attention. I have no desire to hot-rod the .38 Super; the warm side of within-SAAMI spec is fine.

    The roughly-equivalent 357 SIG being a more-prolific cartridge will, of course, work against the offering of the .38 Super, in any pistol platform.

    22 TCM

    Rock Island already pays to maintain a commercial infrastructure to support the cartridge, so Glock would incur no costs beyond simply designing and tooling up for the pistol.

    It would also give them the ability to generate additional sales to existing owners by offering conversion kits for existing Glock models compatible with the cartridge (or at least the 22 TCM 9R variant).

    And, since the 22 TCM case is based on the .223 Remington, once the 22 TCM pistol was out, Glock could leverage the design experience and tooling to begin cambering other pistols for other rounds based on the .223 Remington case.

    Anyone up for a 6.5 Grendel handgun?

    .38 super would be great.

    What I really want from Glock is a 10mm/.45 compact with a Glock 19 length grip, not the stupid pinky pinching hybrid the 30/29 is. Could even get a 10 round mag that won't dent the crap out of my rims then too!

    25ACP with a 30 round mag. For when you want to tell someone NO, but don't really want to hurt them.

    .22LR seems the obvious choice, I think people would buy them to train with them, I also think a lot of instructors would buy them for their classes, to sart new students off with.

    I'd like to see a full sized short-recoil .380 but it doesn't look like anyone is going to produce one, and maybe there isn't a market for it... but I still think It'd be a fun gun to shoot.

    I'd like to see .32 ACP also... I regret not getting some of the 32s that used to be on the market

    22 magnum would be a cool upgrade, they already have a 22 conversion. A 22 mag would be cool

    I can think of many many other guns I'd want more chamberings in. Glock in a 44 mag? Come on now. How big would that polymer gun have to be. Guys have trouble handling desert eagles. A 44 mag or 357 mag Glock would be a joke. And for people suggesting .22 lr, there are some well regarded conversions out there.

    A Glock in 5.7x28 would be interesting. I'd like to see a redesigned grip for all of their guns. I like Glocks, don't love them, but adding say a different grip angle or thumb safety would be a nice.

    I'd like a G42 in .32 ACP. I'd also like it in 22LR.

    While we're at it, I'd like a factory option for 22LR for all their models. The aftermarket conversions are absolutely heinous travesties.

    .380 in a Glock 34, or 19 sized pistol.

    5.7x28mm, or the .22 TCM if it has similar ballistics. I'm not a huge fan of long skinny grips. Long and fat is fine.

    .50 GI version of a Glock 41.

    1) Take the 10MM case and neck it down to 9MM. Should boost the 357 Sig stats by a considerable margin.

    2) high speed 22...neck the 40S&W down to 22 ( and no they didn't already do that. The 22 TCM is based on the 223 case.)

    3) FN 5.7X28

    4) 38 Super case necked down to 25 caliber...should come close to the old 256 Hawkeyes.

    My brother has the Advantage Arms conversion, its picky with ammo but even dedicated .22lr autoloaders can be. It runs all day with mini mags. Just his experience with AA.

    7.62x25 mm,in a Glock 34/35 type barrel length...or maybe the 6 inches of the 17L, without porting.. probably have to use a Glock 20 frame like the other poster suggested for the.38 Super/9x23 Winchester idea(NICE!).

    Purpose build blowback .22LR on the 42 frame. I think they'd sell.
