Glock Adj Grips Confirmed

From a good friend and industry professional attending NAPED, it’s confirmed. Glock is officially informing vendors that adjustable grip versions of some guns will be available … probably around SHOT Show 2010.

  2. Its about time, glock is one of the best fighting pistols ever made, and I bet sales are starting to fall due to S&W, Springfield, ect, showing that pistols are not one size fits all.

  3. i just sold both of my M&P 45’s and am now trying to decide what to get to replace them. i’m not going to sit and wait on the new glock though. i know i do not like the RTF versions at all. no way i’d want that thing in a IWB holster. it’s like 60 grit sandpaper sanding your flesh away the slide looks like it has hot-dogs on it.

  4. Shotshow, huh? Perhaps thats when Glock will also introduce the proverbial single stack, sub-compact 9mm, and the carbine. Right….. :)

  6. Glock moves inexorably at a glacial pace into the new millenium, driven there at the point of a gun, specifically the M&P and the HK P2000 and P30 family of weapons. Now how about a beavertail to prevent slide bite and enhance control and perhaps they really will have achieved something close to perfection. :-)

  7. It’s ironic that Glock probably did more to advance combat pistol design than any other single pistol design to date of the last three decades, yet now we accuse them for moving at a glacial pace?

    As much as I would like a Glock with better ergonomics, I agree with Glock’s decision to not continuously redefine their pistol for meet the fads and trends of the modern market. They have a nearly legendary, iconic image that would only be polluted by doing so. People buy Glocks because of their reputation, good value, and ubiquity. By continuously evolving, Glock would lose some of that identity, even if the marginal improvements were indeed better. However, they’ve clearly reached the point that they will lose considerable market share if they don’t at least match the ergonomic advances of the last decade or so.

  8. I find it somewhat bemusing to hear so many people say Glock is doing it wrong (I’m on a lot of forums, and it’s a common topic) when they own 80+% of the LE market, have a serious number of pistols in the hands of the military, and have a world wide back order into the tens of thousands of guns. Its no wonder they move slowly; they’re going balls out just to meet current demand.

  9. Haji — That 80% number is way, way off. Glock is the dominant force in LE handguns but not close to 80%. They calculate that number in a way that dramatically over-represents the number of Glocks issued.

    On another note, I had to delete a comment to this post already because someone couldn’t play nice. Everyone is welcome to offer his opinion in a professional, mature manner. Calling other commentators names or inviting them to perform inappropriate carnal acts will not be tolerated. 8)

  12. hmm, can’t post pics. rats, have some good pics of Glock bite form a couple weeks ago.

  13. Oh my god, get and S&W M&P

  14. cool thanks Todd!

  15. my Sig doesn’t have a dovetail and I’ve managed not to get bitten in about 1500 shots. My husband and a couple of friends have managed not to get bitten either.

    I rented a Glock last night at a local range, put 100 rounds thru it, and managed not to get bit (without even thinking about it).

    Must just be lucky, or I’ve become the “gun whisper”m so they are tamer around me.

  16. bogie — I think you mean beavertail, not dovetail. Some people benefit and some do not. If you have big enough hands and get a high enough grip on a gun, particularly a Glock, you can get bit. Just follow the links to the two pictures Rob E posted in his first comment, above, to see the results.

  17. yup gotta grip lower or the gun does that. Not that I care, it’ll eventually wear a permanent track in, or I’ll learn to grip it lower. one of the two.

  18. I get bit by my G19 every now and then, which is why my training gun is an M&P 9. I’d love to see them add just a bit of an extended tang to that gun, along the lines of the M&P. That said, there’s enough to like about the Glock (easy to shoot well, accurate, monotonously reliable, and well supported, among others) that its my preferred concealed carry gun.

    I guess all that to say that I’d rather have them lengthen the tang than have an adjustable grip if they’re gonna change the design. I guess I coulda said just that, but that wouldn’t be any fun.

  19. Any luck at seeing a Glock in .22LR for cheap practice? Or even a conversion kit of their own. I would personally jump all over that!

  20. Hey, What do you think about belly band holsters?, I thinking of getting one for the wife because she is not doing well with a regular hip holster. I found a great one on http://www.personaldefenseservice and they swear by them.
