I understand what you are saying and that they are ways of doing it. But walk into or call most any gun shop in MA and ask if they have any new Glocks available?I wouldn't be so sure of that. Aside from things like AR/AK pistols (without a fixed mag), most guns are available to us MA peons.
Well, they are and have been behind the power curve. People wanted single stack mags for subcompact concealability. Glock dragged their feet while the Shield sold like hot cakes. When Glock FINALLY decided to join the party, Sig innovated and came out with the P365 and found a way to cram more rounds into the width of a single stack subcompact. And bam, now Glock is behind the curve again. If Glock innovated in the first place, maybe they wouldn’t be behind the power curve....
Poor Glock is always criticized for going it's own way
And how about single-stack? What year did the 36 come out? A decade ago??? "That's just stupid. Who wants a subcompact single-stack polymer gun?" Then they look like they are behind the curve 5 years later. LOL
Ah yes, the Glock 36. As wide as a Glock 19/26 and released under the incorrect assumption that Americans only wanted 45 ACP.Pretty sure the G36 was pre-Shield. Like I'm almost positive considering how long ago I had one in my safe. My point is they did it when it wasn't hot, no one bothered, they tabled it and then someone else "invented" it.
I look at that differently.... why do I want to pay money for sights I'm just going to peen out anyways? Would I prefer a set of steel sights? Sure... but if you're just going to pound themMaybe they'll finally stop shipping guns with terrible plastic sights.
If the sights were steel and had a different alignment mechanism than that stupid square U in the back, then I bet they wouldn’t change the cost of the gun much and would be satisfactory for many shooters. They wouldn’t have to be tritium or anything. There are plenty of people who put aftermarket sights on their Glocks purely to get rid of the garbage stock ones.I look at that differently.... why do I want to pay money for sights I'm just going to peen out anyways? Would I prefer a set of steel sights? Sure... but if you're just going to pound them
out and throw them away anyways... Glock trying to assume that "everyone will like these sights" is absurd.
Then again if I had my way I would like a world where I could buy a car and choose the tires that I'm going to get on the car when I buy it... instead of just putting up with the crap they
give you. At least with Glock I know I'm not paying for sights I didn't want. Like how would you feel if they put XS big dots on their guns by default? You would be like "Why does Glock assume I'm 98 years old?"
