Rumor - Glocks With Adustable Grips

There seems to be a rumor floating around that there will be Glock pistols coming out within the next 12 months with interchangable backstraps. Allegedly, it has been confirmed by Glock, Inc. I've seen no official documentation, or photos of the pistols, so until then I can only report it as rumor. This would not be the first rumor to come out about a new Glock that never existed, or was never slated for production.

I was under the impression that Glock was selling so many pistols that they didn't need to really do anything to keep up with the competition. Even before the election Glock pistols were in short supply.

but it's already perfection.... no need to change it. :-)

But seriously, the Glock grip angle, awkward as it is for those attuned to 1911's, is on purpose to help manage recoil. It's very similar to that of a Luger.

I do wonder why Gaston never came out with an optional manual safety model as it seems that is the one thing that really drives people away from Glocks.

They did make pistols with thumb safeties.

Glocks With Factory Thumb Safeties

It would seem that the idea never caught on.
