    Glock .380 is possible...

    OK, I know Glock can't import their .380 due to the points thing. But didn't I hear that they were going to be manufacturing some pistols in their Georgia plant? If so, we could see a Glock .380! Anyone think that Glock would do it?

    As with any new firearm I would want to see it, handle it, then let the "oooo ooooo new and shiny" people jump on it first and see what the feedback is before I bought one

    No benefit to getting a Glock in .380. They are the same exact size as the 9/40/357 line. JMO.

    Nope very unlikely to ever see one (A glock 25 or 28) in the USA. They're made for LE and over in Europe. Besides, they're just about the same size as the Glock 26 in 9mm.
    This Topic was discussed earlier too. Under "Glock 380" in defensive carry guns. Miight want to look it up.

    I guess you are referring to the G28. I do not think I would like to buy a .380 that has exactly the same dimensions than the G26/G27 which are a 9mm/.40. Furthermore, the G26/G27 are only 1 oz heavier.

    G28 data:
    LENGTH 6.29 in.
    HEIGHT 4.17 in.
    WIDTH 1.18 in.
    BARREL HEIGHT 1.26 in.
    LINE OF SIGHT 5.67 in.
    BARREL LENGTH 3.46 in.
    WEIGHT 18.66 oz.
    MAG. CAPACITY standard: 10 OPTIONAL 12/15/17/19
    TRIGGER PULL 5.5 lbs.
    TRIGGER TRAVEL 0.5 in.


    G26/G27 data:

    LENGTH 6.29 in.
    HEIGHT 4.17 in.
    WIDTH 1.18 in.
    BARREL HEIGHT 1.26 in.
    LINE OF SIGHT 5.67 in.
    BARREL LENGTH 3.46 in.
    WEIGHT 19.75 oz.
    G26 MAG. CAPACITY Standard: 10 OPTIONAL 12/15/17/19/33
    G27 MAG. CAPACITY Standard: 9 OPTIONAL 11/13/15/17
    TRIGGER PULL 5.5 lbs.
    TRIGGER TRAVEL 0.5 in.

    No, I do not think the G28 is a good choice

    kind of puzzling why Glock won't put out a compact,single stack .380 or 9mm? they'd probably own the gun market for many years by doing so..

    Maybe a Glock Model 40? 9mm Slimline? I'd love me one of those. C'mon Glock! Answer the people!
    Knowing is half the battle.

    *sigh* we can only wish for a single stack 9mm, but i'd want more options too, such as similar to the PM, P, TP, size of the kahrs....

    I don't know why anyone would want one unless they wanted a really light-shooting Glock. Other than that, there's no advantage to having one.

    Not me, I'd buy at least three or four Glock single stack 9s sized at the G26, G27 level with the same controls. I'd love to have a eight round 9mm glock at around one inch think. Big-time winner IMO.

    - I love my Kahr MK9, PM9 and P380, but I would buy a similar frame Glock in a heartbeat.

    - Not to mention having money to burn with .380ACP prices as they are.
