    Will Glock Carbine finally be a reality?

    Rumors have abounded for years about Glock's eventual entry into the carbine market. Maybe I'm the last one to hear about it, but I stumbled across this article last night that indicates they are not only going to do it, but do it on a modified AR (M4) platform. Hope this isn't just another photoshop joker fooling around. Anybody know anything about it?

    After years and years of consumer, law enforcement and military demands, Glock will soon unveil their newest type of firearm, pistol-caliber carbines that accept ubiquitous Glock magazines. Glock plans to officially launch the new Glocks at this year’s NRA Expo.

    Glock will be launching three versions of their carbine at first, chambered for their small-frame magazines in 9mm, .40 S&W and .357 SIG (.45 GAP has not been mentioned). They will be tailored for both law enforcement and consumer segments, with an SBR, an AR-pistol type gun and a standard carbine with a 16-inch barrel. Both the pistol and SBR Glocks will have 6.5-inch barrels.

    Glock told us they are considering a model with a permanently-attached muzzle shroud, similar to the TacSol SB-X barrel, which will accept any standard silencer inside while still measuring in at 16 inches. This will give you the option of running a compact Glock carbine suppressed without requiring that you register the lower as an SBR.

    A second line of Glock carbines for their large-frame magazines chambered in .45 ACP and 10mm Auto is due later, most likely in 2014.

    These Carbines accept standard AR triggers and most other AR-15/M16/M4 accessories, like stocks, pistol grips and furniture. It isn’t clear at this point whether or not Glock will sell caliber conversion uppers separately, but we hope so, that would be a smart, not to mention profitable, move.

    Glock will be using a straight-blowback operation for these guns, making the bolts and bolt carriers compatible with existing pistol-caliber AR parts. They’re not breaking any molds other then their own.

    This shortly follows the announcement of the SIG MPX which has taken everyone by storm. While the design is simpler, the fact that it uses standard Glock magazines — and has the Glock pedigree for durability, reliability and excellence — we’re positive that these carbines will be universally popular.

    Actual details and availability will be finalized at the NRA Expo, but we expect to see the first batch of these hit the American market by the fourth quarter of this year. It’ll be a tough wait; it’s been years since people have first asked Glock to make this gun or any Glock magazine-accepting pistol-caliber carbine. A few more months will be worth it.

    The one major question is price. Glock has been totally silent on this subject, but says they’ll be “affordable” and “in-line” with common service rifles.

    I am sure they will be able to compete as far as pricing. I have read where Glocks production cost are about 50% cheaper when compared to US production costs. I know for a fact that they come in with some very low cost per weapon when they submit bids on LE contracts.

    Well, the NRA convention was in Houston last month and these didn't show up so I'm going to go with a big NO.

    Cool

    That picture you put up looks like a SBR that takes Glock magazines. I don't speak for anyone but myself but I'd want 2 30R mags and a combat sling for that Bad Boy
    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    It's not going to happen. Glock is stuck doing the same thing over and over again. Good guns but Glock hasn't been all too innovative for a long time.

    I would welcome a Glock carbine! In the meantime my Kel Tec Sub 2000 is the next best thing! The fact that it shares the same magazines as my Glock 35 makes it even better! BTW my Sub 2000 carbine makes 75-100 yd shots VERY doable! YMMV.

    I would do horrible things to own a Glock 1911.

    A carbine with interchangeable uppers to shoot several different calibers would be truly innovative. One that shoots .22LR, 9mm and .40 would flip the market completely upside down. And design it to look like an MP40.

    Only if it is in 10mm and they come out with a 30+ round magazine interchangeable with my Glock G20 SF.

    One can say the same for the 1911 and Colt; My Glock 19 turns 20 years old today. I don't see the need to carry or buy another pistol after 20 flawless years!

    I will likely carry my G19 for the rest of my life! Glock's slogan rings true for me.

    Perfection!!!

    Adding to that, why the heck would you want an AR-15 made by Glock. It would just be another pistol caliber carbine, except it would say Glock on it.

    No thanks. If I wanted a carbine from Glock I'd want something new, innovative and oozing with perfection.

    The word from the reps is that Gaston hates the idea. Apparently there are dozens of in house designs ready to go. They also passed on numerous opportunities to license out designs under the Glock brand. While I have no idea what they passed on, but the Kris's Vector probably would have been a whole cooler if it was named the "Glock Carbine".

    I want the Sig MPX bad!! I'm trying to lock down a dealer that will californicate it for me when it eventually comes out.
