I have heard and read in several places, that Glock has a full size single stack .45 on the drawing boards. I have also heard they have had problems getting it to work right. I don't have a clue if this is all just urban legend stuff, or possibly there is a kernel of truth somewhere in all these rumors. Anyone have an inside track on this possibility?

Wouldn't that be nice. Now if they would just get rid of the finger grooves, the ridiculous hump on the backstrap, and angle it less, I'd be overwhelmed with joy.

On Glock-forum, a poster said that Chuck Taylor revealed in class that Glock is at work on such an item. Supposedly, the rep told Taylor that something smaller than the G21 and bigger than the G36 is in the works. Don't you just love unchecked rumours?:D

A G21 with a straight 8rd mag, with the trim overall width of the 36, would be ideal.

Victor,

Thanks for that info. While I dunno how much stock to put in the source, it does sound like a viable idea. If they can keep the slide dimensions on the thin side, it would help the concealabiltiy a great deal. Eight rounds would be fine with me, although I am sure many would rather have it with ten.

I have heard the rumor of a single stack, full size .45 for a while now, but nothing official. Of course, we had heard in LE circles about 6 years ago that Glock was working on a carbine also, and that never seemed to happen.

I must credit them however, because they have been pretty responsive to the public's demands. First response was the G-19, then the G-21, then the G-26, then the G-30, etc. I would not be surprised if a larger, single stack gun in .45 isn't produced soon. (I still think a select-fire carbine would be cool...)

Heard Chuck mention a .45 ACP single stack holding one more round than 36 @ one of his weekend Handgun Seminars last Oct. He mentioned all they said on the time frame was ".....in the near future." Hoping that the near future for this pistol isn't same as for the 36! Think Glock would be Nuts not to bring out a SS .45 ACP in their "full-size" or P/T especially given the popularity of the 34/35 in IDPA & IPSC, etc!

If the new gun has the accuracy of the G-21, it would be THE gun for IDPA! I'd buy one, and I'm CHEAP!

I posted on firearm finishes some time ago on multiple boards and we ended up coming to the tenifer finish on each post.
After I began posting on the tenifer finish and Glock questions I received several email messages from Glock employees explaining the process and offering some history on the guns. Two of them did confirm the Glock Carbine as being very real.
I believe if memory serves that Chris Edwards has also commented on the Single Stack full size model. I spoke to a rep at Jerry's Law Enforcement sales about a month ago and he also told me that a single stack model is coming and should begin to be advertised and publicized in the fourth quarter of 2001.

I've also heard and read that Steyr might be coming out with a single stack .45 version of their M-style pistol, which will use 1911 mags. Anyone heard this?

Yes, Spoke with GSI last June and it was supposed to be on the market by now but has been pushed back to......? Great thing about the gun anyway, is that it is to take existing 1911 S/S mags.

OK - I heard some rumors today, and I have not verified them, but...

I heard that the Glock 37 is going to be a 9mm in the Glock 36 format, and the 38 will be that same gun in a .40. Rumor is that the Glock 39 will be a "longslide" .45 for IDPA & IPSC. I have no clue what length a "Longslide" will be.

Just FYI
