Folding Glock
« on: February 10, 2018, 07:17:51 AM »
Saw on GunsAmerica where Glock just released a Glock 19 that folds in half with a 32 round mag in place. It folds to about the length and width of a I phone. $1300. WAY too muck for a plastic gun even if it folds.

Kevn are you sure Glock released it, or is it a 'Full Conceal' brand conversion of a normal Glock?

I think it's pointless as the size is not that much different and you would need to unfold it to deploy, harder to do in a high stress situation.  However, I do like innovation in the industry and thinking outside the normal box.

You may be right. The price is the same $1399, WAY too much.

It solves the too much money in the bank account problem.

It looks like the hinge just moves the grip from its regular position to under the barrel.  I don't see the point.

OK . . . . . . I'm going out of the box on this one guys and I don't care what you think:

   That is about as stupid and useless an idea as putting a convertible in orbit!
