    i would totally jump on one. I've own quite a few Glocks and haven't had a single FTF/FTE's yet after 1000's of rounds. Sorry if this has been discussed already. Searched, but didn't find anything.. If one already existed, please merge or delete thread.. thanks!

    Why not just by a Kahr?

    I would be suprised if they didn't, unless they don't want to replace existing sales of double stack compacts. Single stacks are the hottest thing going right now as Ruger and others have made a lot of money in this market. Now it looks like S&W may be following suit.

    Well, they do have a subcompact/slimline...the Glock-36, and it's a great firearm.

    GLOCK "Safe Action Pistols"

    Because Glock isn't innovative since they were introduced and their pistols have to feel like 2x4s.

    They're well made but a Glock is a Glock. If you've seen one, you've seen them all.

    was thinking about it, but decided on a beretta nano instead. picking that sucka up tonight. :) I'm not use to FTF/FTE's so hopefully the Nano isn't too bad even though some reviews mentioned FTE's..

    totally agreed. Glocks are actually pretty ugly, but i'm sure most Glock owners (like myself) bought some, not because they're good looking, but because they're reliable. But damn....... a G26 in single stack will make me **** in my pants.

    Because everything that it's famous for is based on it's current design. Why weaken it?
    I hope they never change.

    For a company labeled as not innovative, there sure as hell are a lot of copies on dealer shelves right now.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    A single stack 9mm would likely be too light weight to import. G26 is the bare minimum already. Were it an ounce lighter, it would be illegal to import.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    interesting.. i never knew that part.... So i'm assuming this weight part only affects imported guns?

    true... i couldn't agreed more......... the first thing the beretta nano reminded me of was a Glock. Not so much about changing things........... More like adding new things/design.

    i'm very happy with my G26. Great size, weight, capacity, and shoots well. I'd rather buy another companies single stack and have more variety.

    Not sure why Glock seldom changes. Maybe so they do not screw up a good thing.I like the look of the new Springfield XDS .45 , holds 5+1 I believe.

    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.
