    If Glock thought this way, they would never have evolved from the G17. They did it with the .45, why not the others?

    Then they would not have come up with the G36 if they thought that way.

    Because they learned their lesson.

    Glock has never (nor do I think they ever will) covet the consumer market. Seeing as how the primary use of a single stack pistol would mainly be a civilian CCW piece I doubt glock has any interest.

    Not sure I agree with that. The GSSF is mainly a civilian shooter organization, though they do have LEO categories for the competitors. It would be interesting to see what percentage of Glock's sales is to civilians in the USA...worldwide, I'm sure the percentage is fairly small. OTOH, military and police contracts do not come up too often. Civilian sales are smaller, but steadier.

    The consumer market in the U.S. is nothing to ignore.

    Glock is the biggest mfg of hand guns because of their reliability and DOUBLE STACK MAG so why change what works

    IMHO, one of the factors that makes Glocks so generally reliable is their unique magazine, made with polymer and a steel liner. The steel reinforces the polymer, while the polymer cushions the steel from drops and such. Given that bad mags are a big factor in semi-auto pistol malfunctions, this mag design helps minimize that source of issues.

    The downside is that this design makes the mags thicker. Look at all the slim single-stack pistols on the market, and they all have bare sheet steel mags. If Glock came out with a single stack, but kept the polymer-and-steel mag designs, it wouldn't be as thin as the competition (see the G36 for an example). So - why bother? Just keep making the lightest, highest capacity double-stack pistols on the market. After all these years, no one is able to make a polymer pistol that matches the comparable Glock in rounds/weight.

    Just a thought.

    We are talking thousands of an inch (0.0003) plastic coating so if you take that and times it by 4 (four sides) you are talking about 0.0012.
    not enough to make a grip fat, no the double stacking adds to the thickness but that is what most want.... a high cap mag.
    Single stacks are good but polymer and injection molding makes what used to be heavy much lighter

    Just thinking out loud here, I own a Browning BDM and it's a double stack but only 1" thick. Glock could just make a thinner gun.

    In my opinion the double stack design supporting the rounds is what makes the Glock feed so well. If they made a single stack it would have feeding issues as well, it's the tapered cases of 9mm that cause this and not the brand of gun.

    I like the way the G19 feels. I feel it's slim enough and wouldn't want a slimmer version. I can easily conceal the thicker G30. I like the capacity of the double stack and would have no interest in a single stack.

    Look what they did to the awesome G19 with the Gen 4.
