Was in a simi-local gunshop the other day(craig45 would know the one) and one of the areas Glock reps happened to be there. I love to put them on the spot. She (yes SHE) eluded to the fact that Glock was gonna come out with a carbine type weapon "in the near future". Now we all know how these things go-----but----- I just figured that I would let ya'll Glockites know what I (kinda) herd.------
A glock one would be cool with the long mags but oh well i get tired of waiting ... I havent shot mine yet but my safety isnt as hard to release as you say yours is and dont think trigger pull is that heavy ill have to see if i can find my scale later in the day
The reason I asked the question is that companies don't make something if it doesn't sell. We don't have any of the Rugers at the sporting goods store, although we carry Mini-14's. And now the Berettas. It seems like these rifles are great in one format, and slow to catch on in another.
The reason I asked about a military or LEO connection was because this trend happened once before. The creation of the 30 Carbine during WWII was to give rear echelon troops an option over just carrying a handgun. The carbine was so popular that it found its way to the front.
It would seem a small, light-weight and maneuverable carbine like these would be great for door-kickin' on drug busts. But I have never seen one do that. Somebody is buying them.
I think it would be a perfect Weapon for what you are talking about Tourist .. Mp5's are certainly popular enough for this stuff but with a lot higher cost
