Is the Wait Almost Over for a Single Stack 9 from GLOCK?

For the past week images have been swirling around the Internet hinting at a NRA Show by GLOCK of the fabled holy grail; a single stack 9mm.  Collectively, we’ve been demanding such a beast for years, sure that it will be the ultimate concealed carry pistol.  

Something big is definitely afoot at GLOCK.  They’ve dropped a few subtle hints on their Facebook page and set up a countdown clock on their site.  They’ve even invited members of the members to an exclusive look at something new, the night before the NRA annual meeting starts.

UPDATE: GLOCK posted this image to their Instagram account today.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard this rumor so I’m not getting too excited.  The real question is, if we get it, after all these years, what will we have to complain about?

    Glock carbine.

    • reverenddel says:

      THAT! THAT is what we’ve been asking for YEARS from GLOCK!

    • blehtastic says:

      It’d have to be an SBR. How many barrel inches does it take for a 9 mm to burn up all its powder? Anything over 5 to 8 inches wouldn’t be “perfection”, and an SBR is too niche for them.

      But, I too, wish they’d ignore all that and come out with one anyway.

      Mr. Glock has just recently completed development of his new carbine. It will be the ultimate CQB firearm also capable of 1,000 yard competition. Just like his revolutionary cartridge, the GAP, the carbine will come with its own new cartridge. The Glock Automatic Karbine. The GAK.

      • GW says:

        A GAK was a East German Recon trooper that was allowed to operate on the west side of the physical boundaries (fences, Mines, Dogs, dudes with AKs) and the east side of the border.
        One night Sully and I almost bumped into two of them. Nothing between us but a pine tree.

    Long slide, double stack, .32ACP. Because that’s what you wanted.

    • mark says:

      Oddly enough, I would be all over that. Ultra low recoil and would be able to hold 19-20 rounds in a slimmer grip frame and slide, and would be simple to suppress.

      Damn, now I really want one.

    • james says:

      I can see the .25NAA conversions now!HAHAHA

  3. JimS says:

    Certainly they’ll sell tens of thousands (because Glock) but, in the grand scheme of things, hasn’t the single stack 9mm been already conquered?

  4. Pieter says:

    Hmmmmm…… tempting…

  5. cimg says:

    WHAT?!?! no OD green?

  6. straps says:

    I have the California Handgun Roster/Microstamping requirement to complain about.

    Yeah I know, just move.


  7. Larry says:

    Instant buy.

  8. PNW_Tree_Octopus says:

    I think the most recent Blue Label pricing sheets recognize this gun…

  9. Derek says:

    Sitting here drooling…

  10. LCSO264 says:

    I’m not a Glock guy, but a single stack Glock 9mm might be one I’d buy. Depends on size, etc….

  11. JP says:

    How about a full size Glock 36, single stack .45

  12. PNW_Tree_Octopus says:

    Point being? There are pricinig sheets that confirm this gun. Can’t blame Glock for hyping it a little.

    • straps says:

      It’s not like they tried to fake the width, which offers most in terms of concealability and control for tiny-handed…

  13. Stu says:

    This image was posted on a “gun stippler’s” Instagram account. He is well documented at creating interesting Glocks via Photoshop.

  14. Stu says:

    He recently posted that it was in fact a fake image.

  15. mike says:

    Maybe, but the 43 has already been confirmed.

  16. TexasKrypteia says:

    Finally! With beach season coming up I will now have a pistol I can conceal in my speedo.

  17. The Glock 42 I purchased was a total piece of crap and after two trips back to Glock, I finally got rid of it.

    I will never be a beta tester for Glock again.

    So, let them release whatever they want, I’m going to sit back and wait a long time before buying anything “new model” from Glock.

    • mike says:

      Hear, hear.

      • Seamus says:

        Let me just say I am a huge Glock Fanboy and after watching 3 of my friends get Glock 42’s and ALL have problem after problem with them I am completely rethinking my love of all things Glock. My Gen-4 23 is going strong 4000+ rounds later so I am happy but as for NEW Glock products I am not going to be the guinea pig.

        • chris says:

          Early G42’s had issues, like Gen 4’s in the beginning. I have a new G42 from this year, and after 100 rounds to break in it shoots like a full size glock (reliable).

    • LCSO264 says:

      This is one of the reasons I’m not a Glock guy. They have a history of letting us be their BETA test group, rather than test the hell out of a given product before releasing it. That said, their 9mm guns are hard to beat. The Glock 19 (with the exception of the grip) is right at the top of the list (well second from the top) for 9mm general use handguns. I just can’t get past their, “let the people work the kinks out” attitude regarding new products.

      However, that is just my personal opinion. like I said, their 9mm guns run like champs generally.

      • TomcatTCH says:

        That’s the new thing. I can’t think of a major manufacturer who doesn’t do this these days.
        It’s stupid, it sucks, and it’s just about a documented industry standard.

  18. Gunslinger6 says:

    That is what I did with my Gen 4 (my first glock) waited for bugs to be worked out, that I read about before I made the purchase.

  19. PTL21 says:

    I think y’all are looking for this:

  20. pro says:

    Come on Glock!!!!!!! I expected more……
    Make a slim about 1″ glock26 double stuck and destroy the ccw market.
    The size of the 26 minus the width was perfect . Correct that imperfection…….
    You will need new steel mags? Ok . The 9mm single stuck of this glock43 is a new mag non the less. …

    Now I am going to wait for the S&W shield double stuck…….

    (Come on major gun companys…….. keltec an scyy did it . Why cant you)

  21. james says:

    Sounds great, now if they will make a 4″ with an 8 rd mag and longer grip we’ll be caught back up with the 3913 from 25 years ago………
