Occasional TTAG contributor Patrick Roberts has expanded on our post from earlier today about the new gun from GLOCK, mixed in more info he’s turned up and added some old fashioned elbow grease, all of which adds to the information available about tomorrow’s announcement.
At Patrick’s site, The Firearm Rack, he’s gone the extra mile including examining some interesting GLOCK patent filings. He’s found pistol designs that feature polymer slide inserts intended to allow a reduced weight steel slide to cycle “low impulse ammunition,” and mentions .22LR specifically.
He links to the patent filing and has some good information. Click on over and read his post.
Oh, and one more thing. Patrick tells TTAG that a trusted industry source has told him there will be multiple pistols announced tomorrow, not just the GLOCK 44.
As to what additional pistol(s) GLOCK will unveil, feel free to speculate below.
