Is that a Leupold Delta Point?   

 

I am still waiting on Unity Tactical to make a Gen 4 Slide so's I can put a T1 or T2 on my Glock 19.

Because Glocks not in touch with the gun community IMHO.

If they were we would have this same on the 17/19 and have a single stack 9 instead of a 380.

My conspiracy theory on the single stack mag is that Glock released the .380 first so everyone bought one and will release the single stack 9mm soon, so everyone will buy one of them too. If Glock released both at the same time there would have been no reason to buy the .380. But that's just a conspiracy theory.

Agreed but from a business perspective it would be bad for glock to release the 9mm anytime soon because the 42 is still selling like hot cakes. I have a feeling once 42 sales start to dwindle that's when we will start getting hints of a 9mm version.

I carried a Glock 20 as my EDC gun from '91-'99. Loooooove me some 10mm. 

 

This could be my post-retirement SW Colorado gun.

 

Love the model number, too. Not that I believe in Glock numerology, but, 10x2=20; 20x2=40... *giggle* - time to put the Honey Jack Daniels away. Sorry.

 Its hard to tell from the pic, but the G40 looks like it might be a 6" bbl, like the 17L or 24...

Some pics look like an RMR, others show a Delta. My guess is you will be able to mount a variety of RDS on these.

I would like to subscribe to your conspiracy theory; Sir, please tell me more.

I noticed that you can't co-witness the stock "irons" through the RMR. Sorta disappointed that Glock didn't address that. Easy fix, of course, but, still...

A factory-made, optic-ready 10mm CLOSED TOP long slide that's the same width as my 3G G24 is very interesting. I've thought of such a thing for 20+ years.

As an aside, I wondered what the Glock model 40 was supposed to be. But no longer.

As noted, the Safariland 6354DO holsters are available in black for the G34/35 in configurations both with or without a WML. Keep in mind that there are some high round count, real world, non-competitive shooters who use slide mounted RDS equipped pistols with longer slides like the G34/G35 so the WML lens does not get as covered with soot. Perhaps this is also a factor...

Good to see them finally address this.  However, I have a conspiracy on the .380 also, as well as these.

 

It seems Glock wants to test the waters with non-major market models...(ie. a .380 concealed gun, and competition long-slide models ---- both expected to sell far less than standard 9mm concealed or a G19 etc.).

 

This way they get all of the issues, complaints, etc. out of the way before pushing into the Glock 17/19/23 LEO market.  Imagine if Glock made a 9mm single stack and then had a recall (ala XDS).  They'd end up having to recall 5-10x as many handguns as their .380 single stack.  Just my guess.

 

I feel bad for this shop though if they really did drop the Glock MOS stuff before they're supposed to.  That'll put them in a bit of hot water.

That is why I use extended barrels in my Glock 19s.  Combined with a little lip balm, it keeps the carbon build up on the lights' lenses to a minimum.

 

I honestly think Glock is releasing these new guns purely for the competition shooting market.  

 

If they had the tactical shooter in mind, then they would have made the RDS slides on model 19/23 and 17/22 guns.

One would have though the G40 would have been chambered in .40 S&W but then that would have made too much sense. I have also heard hood rats claim Glock markets the G(what ever) as "Gangstah" because they are the gun of the people... They were usually the ones getting denied or nicked for straw purchases so there is that.

I was at a Grock armorer class about two days before the SHOT Show when the 42 was released.  The Glock rep had a 42 that he passed around.  I thought "meh".  When I told the rep that if it was in 9mm he'd have my credit card to process a sale, he commented that he thought that they would come out with a 9mm in a year or two so they could sell everyone who bought a 42 a new 9mm model.  Just like JW104's theory.  I makes sense, they can sell double the guns that way.

Why would they make the G40 in .40 S&W? They already made the G24. The G40 does appear to have a longer barrel ala G17L/G24, and may be a replacement for the 6" long barrel G20 that they have marketed for hunting in the past.

My take on the "conspiracy theory"? It's all down to numbers.

 

Up to G41: Double stack in various sizes and barrel lengths.

 

G42: Single stack .380.

 

G43: Single stack 9mm.

 

G44: Single stack .40 S&W.

 

G45: Single stack .45 ACP - This is the big one, the Glock45!

 

G?: Single stack .357Sig/10mm/45GAP/whatever.

 

Regards.

This made me think of the Colt SAA that Wyatt Earp had in "Tombstone."

Me too.  My Kel-tec Sub2K is a fun range toy, but I'd love to have a quality 9mm carbine.  It would still be a range toy, but a QUALITY range toy.

Yeah, an AR-based 9mm carbine won't qualify as a range-toy for me.  Too much $$ and would perhaps teach some bad habits on 5.56 manipulation, like that mag release.  But very nice.

The rumor of a Glock "carbine" has been bandied about for a quarter of a century.

 

Meh...

This isn't nearly as reasoned a response as your theory, yours makes complete sense, but I spoke to a Glock employee last year at SHOT and this is what he said. Not a straight quote but paraphrased...

 

Yes, the single stack 9mm makes more sense.  Yes, Glock is working on that.  What you don't realize is just how slow and cumbersome our development process is in reality.  The .380 released this year was in development in 2011 when everyone else released their .380's at SHOT.  We have just now, two years later, got ours ready.

 

So, based on that, you can expect to see the "new" single-stack 9mm in 2015? 2016?

I continue to be amazed, but not surprised.
