OK we have all heard the rumors about Glock's " New Gun " they will show off at the Feb/2006 SHOT Show.

So I thought just for fun we would take a vote here and when its announced we can see who was right.

My personal guess is a 9mm/40 caliber carbine

Poll coming ......

This time it might be the carbine...I wish, I hope. (in 10mm)
Link Posted: 12/23/2005 5:18:44 PM EDT
5.56/.223 carbine that will standard USGI magazines.

Good Poll. I've got to go with a 5.56 carbine that takes mil-spec mags.

A carbine that takes Glock Mags. SWEEEEET.
I want one three.

Link Posted: 12/24/2005 9:20:00 AM EDT
a pistol caliber carbine would be nice.


something cheaper than the olympic models would be nice.
Link Posted: 12/24/2005 9:25:53 AM EDT
45/10mm longslide probably.

A bullpup 9mm carbine would be nice but doubt it.
Link Posted: 12/24/2005 9:41:51 AM EDT
my "inside" source says it will be a carbine, taking usgi 5.56 mags, to compete on the civilian and leo market against the various ar15's

i wouldnt buy anything like that.

the ar15 platform is great along with an abundance of parts availabilty. like the others there will be limited .

I am really hoping it's a .45 single stack with the dimensions of 17 or 22. This would give me pause to think about giving up my 1911s.

+1 on that.

My uber-reliable sourse in South Florida says it will be a Polymer bullpup chambered in 5.56 GAC (Glock Automatic Carbine), a slightly shorter round that 5.56 nato, but incompatible with it and does not perform any better. Gunwriters will clambor on about the extra killing power of the 12 fps gain fron the 3mm increase in functional barrel length due to the 3mm shortening of the chamber. Doc Glock will claim that all those who think it is crap are too stupid to undertand the genius of it.



I'd love a .22lr target pistol, and a less gay looking carbine than the storm might sway me to buy a glock pistol and carbine.
Link Posted: 12/24/2005 1:00:22 PM EDT
Would be nice to see a little 9mm carbine, I've saved up all my pennies this year to acquire one if they ever come out If its another pistol I guess I'll put it towards paying off the car.

Btw, why are some people here wanting a glock carbine in .223 that takes USGI Mags? I mean if you want something that takes those, get a AR. I might be missing the point why some would want one, would it have something to do with the states that have a awb? Or just a alternative to a AR15?

What if it didn't require as much maintinance (cleaning) as the AR15/M16 does in order to stay operational? ...Like the AK/Mini-14, only better.


Mine: A pistol caliber carbine and posibly a pistol that meets US Military requirements. (Way to break the mold eh?)
Link Posted: 12/25/2005 7:02:20 AM EDT
Either way, I'm putting off buying more guns until Glock comes out with it's new firearm.

Is it a safe bet to say it's not going to be a handgun? Most people here think it'll be a carbine of some sort....pistol caliber or otherwise.
Link Posted: 12/25/2005 7:19:22 AM EDT
Don't they already have a compact .45ACP?
Link Posted: 12/25/2005 5:23:48 PM EDT
I would buy a Commander size .45, longer barrel G36 and grip about .5 to .75" longer. That would be the ultimate Glock, single stack .45.

I would buy that one.

Why not go all the way with the G36 and make a full size grip to use 1911 mags to entice the 1911 aficionado's over to the dark side? Then do away with that prototypical swell on the grip backstrap to get rid of the 'feel' issue and call it a G11.

I heard it would be one of those commemorative models engraved with a picture of el Presidente Boosh and Vicente Fox that reads “Mi Casa Es Su Casa.”

Would anyone buy that model?

No, but seriously, I hope it’s another pistol. Can’t seem to stop buying those Glock pistols.

I'm a police officer with an agency that issues Glock and here is what I heard... My Deputy Chief over training spoke with Glock. They will have their new single stack .45ACP 1911 style gun at the show.. It is to compete with the other 1911's out there for the MEUSOC gun contract. As Kimber won only a limited contract to produce guns for the Marine Corp's SOCOM community. It will have a frame mounted safety, must be in ACP not GAP, and accept 1911 magazines with minimum 7 round capacity... That's his story and it is second hand but there was alot of detail so I'm sure that's what we will see in Vegas....
Link Posted: 12/30/2005 11:06:30 AM EDT
Remember Glock first promised this during 2005 and then put off the announcement to Feb. 2006. I don't care what it is now, I've already spent the money I laid back for the 2005 product. If its not better than the 45 GAP or 45 ACP offerings so far......

So.... with the start of Smith & Wesson offering a 1911 style gun.... it was followed by Sig's GSR (or was it Sig then Smith?) and now we have Glock possibly offering a 1911 style!?

Link Posted: 12/30/2005 1:28:25 PM EDT
Well from the sound of it there is discussion on replacing the Beretta M9... I'm not sure if it's true or not but I'm sure Glock looks at it like winning the MEUSOC contract may seal the deal to replace all the M9s and that is one big contract... Glock already controls 80% of the law enforcement market.. If they got the military too they would be like S&W was back in the day... I guess we will see....

This contract would be huge money for Glock and solidify their presence world wide. The question remains, will it be steel or poymere (sp?) I just cant see the military going with a plastic.........sorry I mean (space age polymear frame) Have you seen those M9's, most have been beat to death.

If Glock makes a 1911 what will we fight about?
Link Posted: 12/30/2005 10:10:55 PM EDT
Slim line 9mm and 40 to compete with the Kel-Tecs... Oh how a slim line version of the Glock 26/27 as a backup or a deep carry gun would be so nice.

The reality... I am expecting single stack full sized 45 ACP and it might well take 1911 mags...
Link Posted: 12/30/2005 11:11:31 PM EDT
i dont see them making a 1911, in order to compete for the contract they would have to commit to building a factory in the US. they are meeting demand as is and the idea that they would build a factory just for the USMC contract is pretty rediculous. theres lots of Police departments out there that would buy more pistols than the Corps and they dont want single stack 1911s. the number of people in the Corps who use 1911's is relatively tiny when comapred to the police market. im willing to bet we're talking less than 1000 pistols in circulation at any given time. without a hammer and a safety its not a 1911, and to have a hammer and a safety would counter their entire corporate philosphy.

and you guys who have'nt been here may see "Smyrna GA" on the glock and think that counts. any of the Atlanta area arfcommers who have dropped by glock can vouch that it is in no way anything like a factory. its in a suburban office park

BTW, i hope im wrong.

While I don't believe that Glock is (or ever will) building a 1911 they do have a factory here in the US and they're currently building G17/22/31 frames here in the states. There's an article about it in the 05 Glock Annual.
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 8:52:45 AM EDT
Well as a side note... IF Glock is planning to go after the military contract getting a foot hold with SOCOM community would be a good start (it almost worked for Sig Sauer P226 and P228). IF they expanded the manufacturing abilities here to attain the contract it would help with them getting around the import point system that prevents them from making guns the size of Kahr / Keltec as well as importing their .380 (Which is the same size as their 9mm / .40 so there is no advantage since the U.S. doesn't restrict handgun calibers to non-military sizes). Although the Tenifer process will still probably be done overseas since the rumor is that the E.P.A. reviewed it ten years ago with a big frown......
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 2:46:56 PM EDT
Is there any hope in seeing a G34/35 in 45ACP???? If not then I am just going to get a G21 and call it a day.

That's what I voted because the stuff I read has me believing that is the most likely of the rumors floating around.

That said, out of your list I hope it's #1 (9mm/40 cal Carbine ( accepts Glock Mags ))

Ignoring your list, what I really wish is it would be a Gen 4 frame on all models that incorporates replaceable front and rear grip inserts. I don't see that happening anytime soon but I do see that change coming eventually (once the people running Glock wake up and smell the nylon ).

All that said, I'll LMAO (and not be surprised at all) if the "big announcement" is nothing more then a release of a new caliber or different sized frame of a currently available caliber

Anything I posted here would be read by the Glock people.

If they were going to make it, they would cancel it just because they found out I wanted it.

I'll just keep my mouth shut.
