You’d think that the design, engineering and manufacturing challenges of producing the new sub-sub compact GLOCK 43 would be fairly routine for Gaston’s mob. The 43 is, after all, a GLOCK. All GLOCKs do the same thing the same way. Apparently that’s not the case. In an interview above, one of the engineers responsible for the long-awaited foetal GLOCK (as opposed to the “baby GLOCK” G26) explains the difficulties his team encountered during the pistol’s genesis. The main revelation: marketing played a key role in the 43’s development and long-delayed release. Who knew?
