Guns.com 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.
