5.7mm Glock coming?
#1
So i "heard" from someone that is plugged deep into the Glock world that an all new 5.7mm Glock doublestack will be coming "sometime next year."

If so, even I would buy one.

Now that is something I'm looking forward to. The FN's are great but I don't have that much money to drop right now. If Glock can drop that price down around $500-$700 I'll pick one up in a heartbeat.
My guns have killed less people than Obama's ATF has.

Well my next handgun was going to be a FN FNS-9, but if what you are saying is true, then I'll probably pick up that Glock 5.7mm if they are priced less than $700.

I'm hoping someone else will chime in and say they heard the same rumors.

Ha!

So will you give us real world data on the effects of Glock leg in 5.7?Big Grin


Looking around some more it looks like an unsubstantiated rumor... Sorry Val.

The fan boys don't see it happening.

Cartridge length is the real problem. A .45 acp round of fmj is just about as long a 5.7 case with no bullet loaded, an 8mm-ish difference. There is no way to squeeze that into the Glock 45/10mm frame size. Of course they could design a whole new gun, but I don't see that happening. They are far too comfortable turning out the same stuff 24/7 to change. I'm not complaining, but I doubt you'll see anything terribly innovative from Glock anytime soon. I wouldn't be unhappy if Glock came out with something like this, but I'm doubtful.

Sucks, because I would have loved to have seen the OP with a Glock.

Honestly Val, if what you are saying is correct, then I don't think Glock will release or acknowledge anything. They'll probably wait for Show Show 2013 to release their new firearm. Because nobody knew about it before and nothing was released, then their new 5.7mm pistol will be the Prom Queen of Shot Show 2013 and draw all of the attention. Smith and Wesson did the same thing with the M&P Shield.

I really hope you are right. I wouldn't mind using my GSSF coupon on one.

Come to think of it, I may have a coupon available with a 5.7 on it should the need arise. Wink
