    The dead horse needs another beating; Glock Carbine

    OK, my noodle had some electric impulse the other day, and now I want to know why Glock has not built a PCC.

    Think about this for a minute; Glock holds the majority of LE contracts by a wide margin. They also enjoy the best sales numbers in the general market as well. That is slipping some what, but they could save it if they wanted too.

    Ammo costs have sky rocketed, and a lot of people are looking for lower cost carbine/rifle options for HD or patrol functions. Lets be honest, most of use dont really need a 223 or 308 for HD. A PCC would be just fine.

    So, an answer to those problems would be to build a carbine. Beretta did it, they have been very successful with their storm. They havent been able to build them fast enough. Ruger was doing it with their PC9/4, however they missed the mark due to them not pushing and updating their compatable pistols. KelTec has tried to fill the gap, but it was a half hearted try and it shows in the quality and design.

    Glock has the perfect backround to build a carbine that would boost sales of their pistols. Even if built in limited numbers, they would shake the industry and have a death grip on the personal defense market.

    So why Gaston? Why are you such a stubborn old fart?

    I've said it time and time again, I would LOVE a Glock PCC in either .357 Sig or 10mm.

    Um, because Glocks are "perfection" so why would you possibly need anything they don't already have?

    Actually that is a very good question, I'm sure Glock could make a boatload of money if they developed a PCC. I like my PCC to be a lever action myself, but thats just me.

    I'd buy one, heck if they did that I'd buy a Glock 17 to go with it.

    See! Thats my point! They would also sell a lot more magazines parts and other doodads.
    Lets just look at slings; Glock could produce a simple nylon sling for their carbine. It would cost them 5 bucks top. Sew a Glock label and they could sell it for 20-25 dollars. Thats profit right there.

    Devil's Advocate here -

    What if they DIDN'T get it right? Would that hurt them in pistol sales?
    Would they still be "Perfection"?

    Seriously though, I like the idea. I'm sure some one over there has kicked the idea around.

    Well they do have those, although they are kinda hard to buy.

    I would stick with the $5 sling myself, and forgo the glock logo

    How could they go wrong? They already make most of the componets needed, and they have plenty of designs to model after, like the HK UMP. They already make a 16" barrel, they already make the magazines. They would need a receiver and bolt, the stock would be made out of the Glock poly... they would have to try to screw it up.

    I don't see how the could screw it up unless they tried to intergrate a scope or some other gizmo's on it.

    I'd buy one instantly! Probably in 10mm and a 10mm Glock to go with it.
    I'm too young to be this old!

    SIXTO -

    Honest question here:

    You seem to know the Glock products better than I do ( not hard admittedly).
    It is a great idea. So, why do you think they haven't come out with one?

    I can only speculate that Glock wants to stick with what they do best, pistols. Thats why all their guns are of the same design. I think it gives them a level of credibility that they only make one thing; combat pistols. No foo foo junk, just solid reliable pistols. Its hard to argue with that line of thinking, they have been very successful.
    But, they are losing market share to copycat competitors. So, I think its time for Glock to come out with something as new and innovative as the Glock pistol was when it first came out 20+ years ago. A PCC would jump start their sales and lock a lot of buyers into Glock loyalty.
