Glock needs to make / release a "Glock Classic" model

Glock "classic" =
-Generation 2 frame, no finger grooves.
-No MIM.

Basically make & sell a early to mid 1990's Glock.

An OD model would be acceptable.

Why not a three pin with Gen 1 stippling? (I can go either way on the rail).

Agreed, with all machined tool steel strikers, extractors, and slide locks.

Would be nice but this will never happen. The Austrian Steyr M9 A1 gen3 is a good alternative to the good old Glocks.

How about some single stacks, carbines, and a .50 AE model?

And a .50 BMG version plus the infamous 40mm all the politicians talk about.


But those would need recoil buffers

Already have one. Gen 2 G19, bought in 1997. Tens of thousands of rounds through it without a malfunction of any kind other than a takedown lever spring breaking once earlier this year.

Already have a Gen2 G23.

Just buy one from a police trade-in and then have Glock go through it.

We really need Single Stack G19/23 and G26/27 frames.

I do not think the accountants will approve of the new line of retro pistols as re-tooling a factory cost a lot, the marketing budget will be enormous and it would state Glock made a mistake with the improved/updated products. You can easily find a used older Gen Glock and update the pistol. In other words companies do not look backwards in product development they are profit minded and are forward thinking (be it right or wrong); MIM parts…?

I doubt Glock ever would, but companies have done classic lines before.

That will happen about the same time Ford brings the Edsel back.

I have a 19 and 23 Gen 2 bought both of them new in the early 1990's.

Other people (maybe kids / teenagers then) won't ever have that option, including my kids.

The idea here is a new pistol made with cast / steel small parts, not a rebuild.
You think Glock would replace a worn cast extractor from a 20 year old pistol with a new cast extractor, or would it get a MIM replacement?

A Generation 2 Glock is hardly the "Edsel" of firearms.

Maybe a premium Gen 4 Expert Series?

I'm thinking move forward with an Expert Series.
No MIM parts and custom shop style fit and finish.
Something like a Springfield Professional.

Wouldn't that be nice?

As has already been stated it won't happen because it would make the current models shortcomings even more evident than they already are.

Forgot to mention I would also buy a slim single stack 9mm pistol
as well as a Glock produced carbine as well. We all know it isn't going to happen, but they'd get more of my $$$$ if they did. Why do all the decision makers never consult with those thousands of us who want one?
