    Smile What if Glock made a 1911 ??

    What if Glock made a 1911?
    Sig sauer did it. They also went polymer.
    Springfield Armory Did it like a Glock and a 1911.
    S&W now makes 1911's and polymer guns similar to Glock.
    So, now it's Glocks turn to make a Polymer 1911, like Wilson Combat, But way less expensive.

    What a fun gun that would be. Glock 1911. I would buy one. in .45 ACP of course.

    Not a bad idea, they could use the Para-Ordinance LDA design as a base, lose the grip saftey and frame mounted safety, and incorporate the Glock trigger safety. I'd buy one, in 50AE of course.

    Glock, cocked and locked

    I want Glock to keep it with all the normal 1911 features;ie; thumb safety,grip safety,4 lbs. trigger.
    night sights made of carbon steel. in all calibers. .38 supper,9mm,40 S&W, .45ACP, 10mm,.50GI.

    what a great and affordable gun Glock could make????

    I'd try one out. I didn't start off as a Glock fan,but have warmed up to them. I really wish they would make some micro sub-compacts!! That currently seems to be the booming market. Something in the line of the ruger lcp or Kahr pm40. The best thing I like about Glock and the reason I am sold; When I pull the trigger, It goes bang each and every time. I have never had any issues with any of my 6 glocks and I shoot them often

    I would give it a try as well. Sounds like a an excellent Idea. Now if they would just do it.

    I don't think you could call it a 1911 at that point.

    I am still researching the sig comb gun they came out with. But Glock is due for something new. The problem is their sales were up something like 70%, so I'm willing to bet they will stick with what works.

    The LDA is not a 1911 IMO. The design keys for a 1911 are the SA trigger, grip safety, and frame mounted safety with the ability to be carried condition 1. Just my opinion of course - I don't know if there is an accepted rule as to what changes can be made to a 1911 and it still be a 1911.

  10. I guess I am the only one who believes a company should stick with its core competencies. Do what you do and be the best at it. Glock is the standard bearer in what they do, making a 1911 would diminish their image. IMO.

    Whoa there now, I don't think Gaston Glock would know how to do that! If they did, I would like to see what they came up with.
