GLOCK Model 42?


UPDATE ** 01/10/2014**:
GLOCK Officially Announces G42

UPDATE - 01/06/2014:
Check out the GLOCK 42 and GLOCK 41 at our SHOT Show Coverage Collection Point!

UPDATE - 12/3/2013 The ad pictured above is in the January 2014 Issue of Guns & Ammo on Page 17. See picture below:

There is an advertisement floating around the internet that shows a 'Zippo-type' lighter superimposed over the outline of a GLOCK 26 sized pistol. For all we know it could be smaller or even a single-stack. Some of the predictions are that it may be the introduction of a USA made .380ACP pistol for the American market. Others are hoping for a single stack 9MM. The one thing I know for certain is that if this advertisement is real, and that's a big IF, then one of my SHOT Show 2014 Predictions just got thrown out the window. To be clear I cannot find any instance of this picture being displayed as an advertisement or any indication of the new model(s) on their website.

Steve over at The Firearms Blog makes a good point that is actually quite illuminating:
"Secondly, were are the G40 and G41 (Glock model numbers are sequential)?  The fact that there might be three new pistols (G40, G41, G42) may indicate a line of pistols."
 GLOCK will typically release a line of pistols in three sizes; full, compact and subcompact. Steve thinks that these early 40 series may be a trinity of 380ACP's; I don't think so. GLOCK already has a Compact and Subcompact 380ACP chambered pistols; the G25 and G28. Both of these pistols are LEO Only pistols due to BATFE's reading of chicken bones and celestial alignment.

Then what could the G40, G41 and G42 be?
I propose that they are each a single-stack pistol with the following chamberings:
  • G40: 9mm
  • G41: 40S&W
  • G42: 380ACP
This is just a shot-in-the-dark of course. (pun intended) I guess we will just have to wait for SHOT Show 2014 for the full release of information. That's if any of this is true to begin with.

UPDATE: Richard at Guns, Holsters and Gear is reporting that the G41 will be a Tactical-Practical (competition) pistol similar to the G34/35 pistols chambered in 45ACP.

UPDATE: Catalog links
UPDATE 12/24/2013
A couple pictures found their way onto the internet of the Glock 42 single stack .380ACP pistol. They appear to be taken from Guns & Ammo.

Legacy Sports keeps teasing us with a 9mm version of their .22LR M1 Carbine. By all accounts it will be offered in a wood and synthetic stock and will feed from Beretta 92 magazines. No word yet on delivery time or MSRP but the best guesses are Late 2013 or Early 2014 between $350-$470.



Not going to lie; I kind of want one. The Firearm Blog has a few more details.

Ruger 10/22 Appleseed Liberty Training Rifle: A Vision of Things to Come?


Project Appleseed just got their foot in the door with Ruger. Ruger just concluded a contest to find the rifle design that America wanted to use to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 10/22. There were several submissions and ten finalist. The winner was announced as Gary from Michigan. The description of his rifle design is below:
Utilizing existing Ruger parts and designs my concept seeks to introduce a practical field rifle that can be used for various rimfire sporting disciplines, such as Project Appleseed and CMP competitions, as well as hunting and informal shooting.
Marlin answered the call of Project Appleseed a while back and started making an Appleseed Liberty Training Rifle built off of their 795 platform. Their rifle comes with Tech-Sights, a web sling and two magazines. The best part is you also get a certificate for free admission to an Appleseed Event.

It looks like Gary's design will take advantage of Ruger's new American Rimfire Stock that comes in youth and full size lengths with your choice of a standard or raised comb inserts. The design features the iron sights from their popular Mini 14/30 rifles and threaded muzzle. The only "custom" feature is the addition of an auto bolt release.

Fred, Appleseed's National Director sent out the following email once Gary's design had won:
Folks, according to the Ruger website, Gary (Michigan) is the Grand Wwinner of the contest to pick a new 10/22 design.  Which means there will be a second Liberty Training Rifle in production in the next six months or so.
Which means a small but valuable additional step in our progress of restoring this nation to the standards of the founders. A new "Rifleman's Rifle" won out over the "takedowns", the "tricked out", the flashy, etc.  
Which means each of you who voted deserves thanks. There were no doubt many non-Appleseeders who voted for this rifle. Many who have not even heard of Appleseed - because the rifle as outlined sells itself to anyone who understands what marksmanship is about. But you guys likely were the ones who put this over the top. And so you deserve thanks. Not so much from me or fellow Appleseeder Gary, although you know we each extend our thanks, big time! - but from the founders of this nation, as each of you took a small action, but one which they would appreciate, and one of great significance for the future. 
We will be following up, talking to Ruger about "special Appleseed Editions" of their new rifle, about marketing not only the rifle, but the concept behind the rifle - that a rifle without skill is incomplete - and that Appleseed can supply the skill. Let's hope this is a good auger for the future! 
Thanks again for helping make this a successful outcome!
FredAppleseed National Director
I already have four 10/22's set-up as Liberty Training Rifles but it appears I will be buying at least one more.

SHOT Show 2014 Predictions


People are already getting geared up and planning to attend SHOT Show 2014; so it's about time to release the RTB.net SHOT Show 2014 Predictions. My prediction record isn't great but I've scored some hits in 2012 and 2013. Here are my predictions for 2014:
  • Thompson Center will release a heavier barrel contour option for their Dimension Rifle
  • Benelli will introduce a 20ga assembly and extended magazine options for their modular Vinci line of shotguns 
  • Benelli will announce the 'ETHOS'
  • Ruger will announce the SR45c
  • Ruger will announce their new line of pump shotguns
  • Ruger will unveil left handed and heavy barreled American Rifles
  • More threaded barrels
  • Glock will have pistols on display that have remained relatively unchanged since the mid 1980's (no new products)
  • Remington will remove the 770 from their product line-up and focus on the 783 (more calibers)
  • Smith & Wesson will unveil a .45ACP Shield
  • More Green lasers
  • Taurus will continue their re-branding attempts and announce they have bought another Amercian based firearms maker
  • Savage will release an in-house chassis system for their rifles
  • 'NFA' Blitz (suppressors, sbr/sbs)
Do you have any predictions or just anything you hope to see?

Mossberg Duck Commander Series - NASGW 2013
