Glock Teases New Release–Maybe a 9mm Single Stack?

Glock This Spring

Updated:  Someone apparently breached a nondisclosure agreement yesterday and confirmed the existence of the Glock 43.  Glock, in turn, gave the rest of the media a go-ahead to publish their “secret stories.”  Looks like we are getting the skinny 9 after all…

Here we go again.  I received a media invite for a Glock event at the NRA 2015 Annual Meeting.  Glock promises exclusive “…Range Time with New Product…” among other perks at the April 20 event in Nashville.  The flyer for the soirée had the silhouette of what looks like a G42, but industry insiders accuse it of being the new Glock 43 single stack 9mm sub-sub-compact.

As if that were not enough, Glock’s Facebook page has the “This Spring” photo of the short double-captive spring assembly that would be part of the 9mm’s internals and, in another advertisement, the top of a slide consistent with the truncated pistol.  Glock is asking us to stay tuned on March 20, 2015 for an important announcement.

I have read conspiracy theories that the Boys from Austria intentionally released their .380 ACP Glock 42 more than a year before their 9mm single stack so they could sell a freighter full of kurz’s before the lugers hit the dock.

Trolls are pooh-poohing the single stack Glocky 9, saying, “I’ve already got one, its a Smith-Kahr-Kel-field.”  Yeah, well, I will still be buying Gaston Sr.’s offering.

The four Glocks in my stable, including the one I carry daily while on duty, have functioned flawlessly.  A smaller nine will carry well off duty and in the rare occurrences I go full undercover, so I look forward to the introduction.  In a few days we will know the whole story…

    I also am hoping this new release will be the long awaited and highly anticipated Glock 9mm single stack. I love my 26 but this would be much easier to summer/off duty carry. Fortunately we have a local dealer here in Salt Lake who gives preference to police officers on new gun models. We will see…….

    Just came across this…. Pretty good write up.

        Ugh… Which means my shop is going to be inundated with calls tomorrow asking if we have them in stock yet.

        Like we’ve been hiding them in the back until Glock gave us the “OK”…

        They’re not gonna be available until probably mid-summer. Hell, I still haven’t been able to get a G40 10mm in the shop yet.

        But… I did talk to my Blue Label rep… We’ve got a batch of G43s with our name on them when they become available. Not sure on pricing yet.
