What if Glock came out with a different cal. what cal. would you like to see? Personally I will buy a G.A.P. but I have always had a passion for a .38 super.

I have never had a 38 Super so that would be the one. I have read where a 38 Super conversion barrell can be had for my G20SF but have never seen one advertised that I can remember.

They lack the required number of BATFE import points. To qualify for import a pistol must score 75 points based on the following system:

Characteristic Points
Length: for each 1/4" over 6" 1
Forged steel frame 15
Forged HTS alloy frame 20
Unloaded weight w/mag (per oz.) 1
.22 short and .25 auto 0
.22 LR and 7.65mm to .380 auto 3
9mm parabellum and over 10
Locked breech mechanism 5
Loaded chamber indicator 5
Grip safety 3
Magazine safety 5
Firing pin block or lock 10
External hammer 2
Double action 10
Drift adjustable target sight 5
Click adjustable target sight 10
Target grips 5
Target trigger 2

For example, here is how the G17 scores:
Length (7.28") 5
Weight (24.79oz) 25
Caliber (9mm) 10
Locked breech 5
Firing pin block 10
Double action 10
Target sight 10
Target grips 5
Total 80

Here is how the Glock 26 scores:
Length (6.29") 1
Weight (21.87oz) 22
Caliber (9mm) 10
Locked breech 5
Firing pin block 10
Double action 10
Target sight 10
Target grips 5
Target trigger 2
Total 75

Changes and features made to Glocks to comply with the BATF rules:
- all models are imported with a cheap click-adjustable rear sight that is replaced at the factory with the stock sight
- target (grooved) trigger added to compacts & subcompacts
- target grips added to all models (required for the subcompacts)
- due to their caliber, .380 autos (G25 & G28) do not score enough points to be imported

Factory conversion sets count?

I'd love to see a factory 22 in a custom fitted case with cutouts for a Glock made 40-9mm and 357Sig barrels and 9mm magazines. I bet it would sell.

Yeh... only LE can get them in the U.S. Most of us will never even see one (G25 & G28)...but then outside of collector interest, we're not really missing out on much, as there are more viable calibers available in the same guns...

I'd like to see a .22 caliber Glock. I had a AA conversion kit but it wasn't reliable and even had a KB (which isn't very dramatic with a .22).

I know some people like .38 super, but realistically that means larger frame and for me it's not really worth it. Plenty of hot 9mm ammo around and there's always .357sig...
