New 4th Generation Glock?
« on: November 17, 2008, 08:44:54 PM »
Well, well, well.....what do we have here.... I saw this on one of those "other forums" and it is being touted as Glock's newest gun...... any idea if it has any merit or is it just internet rumor?








SayUncle says it will debut at the next SHOT Show:

Couldn't be... they are perfect... just ask glock or its fanboys.
I always break all the clay pigeons,  some times its even with lead.

did they get rid of those useless finger grip grooves? I don't know whose hand they used for a model, but it isn't even close for my hand.

That has more dimples than a golf ball. Probably made from the same plastic too.  ;D  You may need to add a box of toothpicks to your gun cleaning kit to keep all those cavities clean. But I'll have to check them out. I need more guns.

It was "Glock Perfection" then they changed it again and again and again. Now it's something different but they still say it's perfect.  ???  How can that be?

I was really shocked the first time I heard about that. It seems to go against the safety rules I learned about guns.

Since when is a minor change in the external finish a "revision"?   Yes, they revised their molds, but it's not like they've added a de-cocker or something truly new.

If people would actually READ the owners manual for the Glocks it says to only move the slide back slightly less than 1/4 in and pull the pins down to strip it.  The problem is most people pull it back to far and it cocks it.  I have straipped mine 100s of times and only have to pull the trigger when I'm in a hurry.

Besides isn't the first rule of cleaning a gun making absolutely sure there is no ammunition in it/around it?  If you follow the rules you shouldn't have to worry about pulling the trigger to get the slide off.

BTW I don't think the dimpled grip would be all that good.  I think it would make it slick and hard to hold onto.
When seconds mean the difference between life and death, the police will be minutes away.

You are either SOLVING the problem, or you ARE the problem.
