Glocks NEW pistol designed to be LEGAL IN CANADA...
      #322980 - 04/01/19 12:44 AM

Several friends have sent me info on this, including Daryl while on vacation in Hawaii..
Anyway, find it very interesting and happy Glock is going after this market..

Surely this will piss of Trudeau and his liberal buddies which makes it worth it all by itself..

Yes, it is. Perhaps I will have to purchase my 1st 9mm, after all.

LOL You would not believe the thousands and thousands of rounds of once fired 9mm fed brass that goes into the garbage or odd guy takes it by the bucket-full to Allan's Salvage in town for a couple dollars per pail. Would still rather it was in .45ACP.

Good to see. In Aust the min barrel length is 122mm . Hence the Glock 17A. The mags are 10 round. They are double stacked but have a fixed spacer at the bottom of them.

A bit of marketing spin by the Canadian distributor. The Glock 48 isn't the first Glock to be civilian legal in Canada. The G17 etc all meet the barrel length requirement, and models with 10 rd mags have been factory standard since the days when the US flirted with limiting mag capacity. Likewise the G48 wasn't designed for Canada. It was designed for the concealed carry market in the US which wanted the slim grip that goes with a single stack mag.

ps. In Australia the minimum handgun barrel length for a target shooter is 120mm.

Glock is going to have to step it up a bit --Sig's model 320 and 365 are showing up in a lot of the old GLOCK haunts.. the Sig 365 was voted as HANDGUN OF THE YEAR by several mags...personally been carrying the 365 for the past 2 months..nice little gun, easy to shoot, holds 12+1 and very concealable.. kinda like my American Express card, never leave home without it..

AS to the U.S. flirting with the mag capacity thing --that was Clinton in the 1990's..if you remember correctly, he flirted with everything, not just Monica..

G'Day Fella's,

Thanks for sharing Ripp.

Not unlike the Glock G17 A ("A" for Australia ....... apparently, with 120mm long barrel and 10 shot mags).

D'oh!

Ripp,

To purchase any pistol in Aust. you need to be a member of a Pistol Club for at least 6 months, attend a number of shoots (how many I can not remember). Then fill out a a fair bit of paper work, apply for and get your pistol licence, then you can apply to by a hand gun. Least ways that's what I had to do back in the early 90's. In some place your first handgun had to be a 22 unless you already carried a handgun for work.

It will vary a little from state to state.

Forgot to add. Be interviewed by the local Police Sargent after your application for the licence went in.

That is quite the process...

Figured as much..surprised it's not more.

Thank you for the info...

Pelosi and Schumer r going to take another run at meaningless gun laws..per Pelosi's comments...worthless liberal turds that they are.

Ripp that process may well have changed but it wont be by much. Now to renew your pistol licence - 5 years in Queensland- you need to attend a minimum of 6 shoots a year and all have to be recorded and 8 shoots if you have more than one calibre. Club has to keep record of your scores.

G'Day Fella's,

Ripp, as Rule 303 said.

Give the Gun Grabbers time, I'm sure the restrictions on LAFO's will increase.
Another massacre will set these UN STOOGES into yet another organised frenzy, and the slimey media will be there to report it all ........... as we have already seen.

D'oh!

As I have stated so many times before, what do you suppose they (governments) are so scared of to have their populations armed?? What do they have planned that they feel all firearms need to be removed from private hands??

Absolutely.

They aren't anti-gun at all! Not one little bit!

As your article on the Chicago Alderman says, they are just anti-gun for you and me!

Can't forget Teddy Kennedy's bodyguard trying to get on a plane with a gun! It's a L-O-N-G
tradition...

As stated earlier--GLOCK is going to have to pick up their game in lieu of Sig's inroads in the past few years..this is another example they are realizing this as well..10 round compact vs the previous 6 round mag--mmmmm, let me think, oh, its Sig 365 that has a 10 and 12 round mag..

The new Glock 43X model..

You don't suppose they come out with the 43X to compete against the Sig 365 do you???
Handgun of the year...

Got a new Glock 48 into the shop today. They have a pretty good feel to them. I played around with it, swapped the top end with my 43. Makes for an interesting pair. I need to put some Cerakote on it but Iíll probably stipple the frame first.

No, the sights are from the factory. They have two configurations out right now, one with the Ameriglow sights and one with standard sights.
