How about a single column 9mm/.40, the same length and height as a G26/27, but thinner than a G36? I'm thinking the ideal front pocket or ankle holster pistol. IMO, the G26/27 is too thick, chunky, and heavy to adequately fill this role. Anyone else interested?

I heard that something along those lines is in the works from Glock. Until then, try a Kahr. Many friends say that they work great, and they are a pretty well made critter.

Chris - I have been thinking along those lines myself. If I don't get the chance to fire a G26, I may well purchase a Kahr in a couple of months. Just trying to hold out for a chance to fire a G26 before I make up my mind. :cool:

The Kahr 9 and Glock 27 are two great pistols. They are both accurate and reliable. The Kahr holds fewer cartridges and feels heavy in my hand. The Glock is stockier and I only know one person that uses it for a pocket pistol. I sure it is just that Stephen A. Camp likes hearing: "...or are you just glad to see me?" If you want a very versatile pistol go with the Glock 27. Why? Try a Model 19 magazine and an A&G adapter. You will swear you are shooting a Model 19. If you have a Bar-sto barrel for your Model 19 and want to shoot great groups switch it to your Model 26. It fits and works well. I guess after reading my ramblings I am saying buy the Glock 26. Regards, Richard

FWIW, Have had both a G26 and a Kahr K9 "Elite '98". The K9 is a very well made and soild gun but despite it's thinness the G26 is probably the better choice. This is from shooting them back-to-back with the same ammo. There is noticably less muzzle flip with the 26. In my estimation only, the "Elite" has a more revolver-like trigger pull which may or may not be to ones liking?

Funny,
Mark and I were talking and he brought up the slim line model 27 thought/idea, my response was yes they do make it, it is called the P40 from Kahr, I have both of these pistols the P9 and the P40, the P40 is snappy so I installed the Harrts stainless recoil rod in it and now it is back to 9mm feel, both pistols wear Ashley Big Dot tritum front and rear sights and I ground the slide stops down, someone else asked about that, well if you are reading this I ordered replacement SS stops from Kahr as spare parts and the metal is completely SS. Great guns, I would like to see a full size slimline G21 in .40 Super or a slimline G20 in 9x23 wtiht he thickness of the G36,now those would be guns with real cartridges and we would not need to rely on "pocket" calibers like the 9mm and .40 S&W.

I'd like to see a slimline, full size, single stack .45 with a 1911 flat mainspring profile to the grip. Preferably with at least an aluminum reciever if not steel.

Dump the butterfly POS on the trigger and maybe an external safety. Aluminium or stainless mags.

Then we might have something.

I'm with you David, Lets see Glock make a single stack 9x23. Or evan a double stack. The only reason I can see that the makers won't chamber it is ..Liability. Maybe they dont think their guns can take the pressure

I seem to remeber a Gun magazine article where the writer, I beleieve it may have been Gary Johnston mentioned that Glock had considered producing a .400 Corbon G21 pistol, but Glock wanted the round to be named .400 Glock. I would be ok with 9x23 Glock, in fact I promise to buy at least five of them, maybe as a single stack slimline full size similar in thinkness to the G36 with a grip length that matches the G17/22 and as a medium size double stack the size of the G23/32 and how about a single stack ultra compact close in size to a single stack G26/27??
And Mr. Glock please also add a long slide model with a 6" barrel so we can crank up the 9x23 ballistics and please offer Richard Heinies excellent Slant Pro sites on all of them.
Now please send them all without the cursed finger grooves, please make them smooth panel models like the first G17, but I want the light rails on the full size and mid size models.
One last thing please ensure that our existing G20 high cap mags fit the new guns, if not I can live with "only" 10rds for civillian carry, but it sure would be nice to realize some continued usage from my G20 investment.
Change that, I will buy at least 15 of them, well come now if I stop carrying everything else even a Glock will break at some time on some day........

Good posts All, With everything being PC now days. Your wishes might be hard to fill. The Glock 380 does not have the PC numbers to be imported and I believe that the finger groves were needed to get the current batch of glocks imported. I don't think I will see things change in my life time,got to break a hundred + anyway! Mike

If the G26 and G27 were single stack I would probably buy one.

The pistol is just too chunky to be a good concealment gun for really thin people like me. Single stack (1911 thickness at most) and holding about 8 to 10 rounds - doesn't matter if the grip has to be a bit longer. In fact, that would be just fine.

If I tried to put a glock in my waistband right now I would have constant offers to refer me to a good cancer specialist for the strange bone growth on my right hip.

I would like to see a single stacked version og the Glock 21. The main reason would be comfort. I do shoot the large pistol well, but it does not fit my hand the way it should. I also want to be free of the temptation of taking out a second mortgage for preban magazines.

Yeah, I'd like to see a single stack 9mm or 40 S&W. Maybe not the size of the 26 & 27 but maybel like a 19 or 23. I think mag capacity would be too restricted in the sub-compact size.

I would love for Glock to bring out a 4 1/2 inch barrel 45, the width of the 36 with the full lenght grip of the 21 in single stack form. Ten rounds of 45 in a small slim package. I would for sure buy that concept.

I would like to see a fullsize 10/ 45 in single stack. It would have 36 length grip with the backstrap extending slightly lower to mate with a longer mag. I would like a regular length front receiver that accepts L style extended slides. Eliminate all finger grooves but the very bottom one. Put on Novak or Heinie Style sights as standard.

I'd like to see Glocks w/o the finger grooves; Maybe as a "B" product line so that those that prefer the grooves can have them and those that don't like them have an option too.

The G27 shoots well, much easier and more accurate than I expected. A 9x23 would be great. A .357 Mag, like my Coonan, would be even better- ammo is much more readily available.
