Glock 43…I’m going to just leave this here

glock43Finally. After years and years of hints, teases, and the release of the red-headed step-child none of us asked for, Glock has a single-stack 9mm. The single-stack we actually wanted. A proper, 9x19mm rather than the 9mm short.

We will make every effort to get one into our hands and tested as soon as they become available. While we’re excited to see the gun enter the market, I promise, we won’t be “fan boys” who give it a glowing review just because it’s a Glock. If it fails, it fails. We’ll tell you what works for us and what doesn’t. But, we do hope, that like nearly every other Glock, it will work with boring monotony.


Word is, Glock is teasing us…Again. says Glock may be teasing about a new single-stack pistol. We at GOTR mentioned more than a year ago, that Glock specifically told us there was a 9mm single-stack coming but, wouldn’t say when they might release it. We all expected it might be released in time for SHOT Show but, that didn’t happen.

Instead, we learned the much anticipated Glock “40” would be a “long-slide” like the Glock 17L and 24 models that came before. The Glock 40 is also the first of the new Modular Optic System (MOS), optics ready models that will compete with Smith & Wesson’s, Pro Series C.O.R.E. pistols. Not an unwelcome addition to the Glock line-up but, the concealed carry market is ripe for Glock to present their own answer for Smith & Wesson’s highly successful M&P Shield if Glock’s own 42 is any indicator.
