    The 21's grip is mammoth... I have no idea what they were thinking. The 17's grip is worlds better, but I still can't reach the mag release without taking the pistol off-target by turning it in my hand. I know that it can be remedied with aftermarket parts, but that's yet more money for something I just dropped $500+ just so that I can use it properly.

    that's the one. thanks.


    you know, i bet if glocks came with better designed grips and an optional secondary safety, glock would be able to buy its own country with the sales revenues.

    I have one of these,

    (it was a picture of a Ruger P89)

    and I actually like it much better. I don't know how it would hold up to being frozen, dropped out of a plane, or buried in baby powder, but it's accurate and I can hit the things I want to hit with it, so I'm not complaining.

    I've got the 23 - did you know that as a bonus you can convert it into a .357 by just changing the barrel? Isn't that fucking great?!

    I had no idea that was possible.

    i had no idea. i thought the conversion kits only allowed you to change it to 9 mm parrabellums?

    Regarding Glock 23 conversion barrels: http://www.barsto.com/category_main.cfm?ID=G23&cco=33

    You can do the same with the XD .40 or .357: http://www.barsto.com/category_main.cfm?ID=XD&cco=63

    A number of things might help Glock...
    • Rethink their naming scheme. The current method of using Glock's n-th patent isn't the most memorable method. A model line could help. As an example, I'll use the acronym GAP (Glock Automatic Pistol).
      • GAP 9 (Glock 17)
      • GAP 9C (Glock 19)
      • GAP 9SC (Glock 26)
      • And so on...
    • As previously stated, the grips as a whole could also be re-evaluated
    • Ambi slide stop, and mag release. For someone with as much market penetration as Glock, appealing to as many people as physically possible isn't exactly a bad thing.
    • Disassembly without a trigger pull


    That's all that comes to mind at the moment...

    After I shoot my Glock, I take it down, clean it all up, oil it good and then put it away.
    The next time I shoot it, it still works real well and I'm pretty happy about that. It doesn't make sense to work real hard to make your weapon unreliable. A weapon that doesn't work properly just frustrates the hell out of me. Just wait and see. That crazy bastard is going to sell that gun someday and some poor devil will think that Glocks suck, just because of that gun.
