So I am in diamondback today picking up some things.
And the glock rep is there with some of the new glocks. WTF!!! the new glocks will only take the new glock mags!

Also kind of weird another guy in the shop asked him what was up with glock selling 30k pistols to iran this week and the glock rep was speachless.

Is this true about glock selling to iran?

I know in another thread about steyr selling 50bmg sniper rifles and the us gov said they would not buy anything from steyr.and now there seems to be a boycott going on.

I sure hope this isn't true about glock.
But the guy at the shop said he had read about it on arfcom and that thread was based on fact not rumor with a news release about the austrian govt approving the sale.but I can't find anything about it.

That would really suck if it were true.
On the pistol side of things it looks like they went and made a simple gun complicated. Having to buy all new mags?
I will just stick with my 1911's

Markm the new glocks are the latest gen with a bunch of new"improvements" includind new mags that work only in new glocks.

Tucan now that you mention it I think he was wearing some fancy boots.

I love diamondback. I only wish it were closer to the center of town...

The new Glock is their model 21SF (Short Frame). Uses a new style magazine which allows for ambidextrous mag release. The new mags will work in the old guns, but not vice versa. This gun was discussed in all the usual SHOT Show threads.

Next, it was IRAQ not Iran that Glock sold the handguns to.

I believe it was G19's to Iraq.
For their police or something like that.

GLOCK sells 30,000 pistols to IRAN.


I wonder if steyr had the same "documents" stating that the 50bmg rifles wouldn't fall into the wrong hands.
