The intertubes have been afire with speculation since GLOCK announced a couple of weeks ago that they’d be revealing some big news tomorrow. Just like the Kremlinologists of the 1970s and 1980s, people of the gun have been engaging in plenty of GLOCKology, trying to divine what it is the company has up its sleeve.
Some put their money on a double stack micro nine like the P365 or Hellcat.
Others examined the graphic GLOCK used in one of their Facebook posts and noted the presence of crosshairs (another version of the graphic with more prominent crosshairs has been replaced). That, they reasoned, was a hint that the new product would be a long gun, possibly the pistol caliber carbine so many have been salivating over for years.
And there were even the ever-present rantings of those who foresaw the long awaited arrival of the elusive GLOCK 1911.
But many had bet on the new pistol — yes, a handgun — being chambered in .22LR. That would certainly be something new for Gaston’s group. Many said the new gun would be dubbed the G44.
Now, as we get closer to tomorrow’s announcement, more concrete clues have emerged. Someone on Arfcom posted this image:
That could certainly be a Photoshop job, but then someone noticed that a new (still blank) page at GLOCK’s website had been created for the G44.
Yes, it’s all still speculation. We won’t know for sure what the G44 is until tomorrow’s announcement.
No matter what GLOCK’s new product us, it will both thrill and disappoint lots of you out there. Others will wonder what all the hubbub is about.
What’s your best guess as to what GLOCK’s new release will be? If you had your choice, what would the next GLOCK gun be?
