    Glock in 5.7 caliber

    Hello,

    I was wondering since the 5.7 cartrige from FNH was created does anyone aside from myself believe Glock should make a pistol chambered in that cartrige? Do you think they could do it? Do you think they would be able sell a Glock chambered in the 5.7 cartrige? Why and/or why not? Let me know what you think.

    Shades of .45 GAP

    Since the .45 GAP fiasco I dont think Glock would be willing to go out on a limb again. Im guess the 5.7 caliber is just not popular enough to warrant starting a new model.
    INGO has an excellent resource for safety recalls. Check it out: http://ingunowners.com/forums/genera...l-listing.html

    I don't doubt they could do it. Whether they would want to or not is another question. Currently, other than the AR-57 uppers, 5.7x28 weapons are pretty much the sole province of FN and FN is selling the ammo. So, if Glock made a 5.7 pistol, they'd be sending more business to FN for the ammo.

    Maybe if there were some 3rd party ammunition makers for the 5.7 (hint hint Wolf, Tula, and friends), then more major manufacturers would be interested in making weapons in that caliber.

    On the other hand, maybe there just isn't much interest in the round outside of the PS90, so it doesn't have much pull in the market place. I know I'd love to get a PS90, but not enough to plunk down $1500 (at least not yet), especially with ammo being $400 per 1000.

    Yes to all of your questions. But pretty much this:

    FN is selling the ammo. So, if Glock made a 5.7 pistol, they'd be sending more business to FN for the ammo.
    I sure hope other ammo companys jump on the 5.7 x 28mm bandwagon. It is just a sweet shooting round.

    Haven't seen any civilian bullets that meet the FBI protocol in 5" or shorter barrels.
    So I have zero interest at this point.

    I don't think it's possible with the Glock mechanism. Too much chamber pressure.
