If this gets 100 percent verified this will be the number 1 selling AR in the country.

Another firearm from Glock “perfection” that people cant wait to modify because its utter junk in stock form… Of course they do have a solid foothold in the Lego style guns.

I’ll be like the Apostle Thomas… I refused to believe until I can see and touch it… :wink:

I’m wondering if Lone Wolf has all parts already stored and ready to ship? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I have a Glock and an AR. But I can still enjoy watching you have a good time with your digs! If we can’t laugh at one another or ourselves we are in trouble.

To be the number one seller, they’ll have to make a civilian version. I wonder how much of this would actually be produced by Glock, similar to my question regarding most AR manufacturers (assemblers… Looking at you, Colt :clown_face:)
One plus for Daniel Defense imo is their in-house production. I like my Glocks, but their metal working seems to be limited. Plastic, that’s another story :wink:
I started off yawning, but their gas system and qd rail is interesting…still, what’s this now, AR 15 brand number 200.??..

Im not sure i follow on how they are limited?

They have been manufacturing their pistols for 35 years. Are they setup on the scale of orher companies to produce rifles? Probably not, at least yet. If they are trying to get the British contract i would think they would be able to handle the production in house.

Most modern manufacturers also know the biggest buyers are civilians. I would almost guarantee that there are already plans of a civilian version ready to go especially if the military contract falls through they will want to recoup their investment in R&D and the patents they filed. Civilians have been begging for a carbine from them for years, what is one if the greatest most popular handgun of all time? The 19.

There are a literal ton of fanboys out there that will eat that up day of release.

Well, what metal do you have on a Glock? A barrel, turning/milling. Slide, milling, both going through heat treat process I’d imagine.
… Do they make their own or are they outsourced? Glock slide release, cheapest piece of stamped metal imaginable. Locking block, trigger housing, frame rails, trigger connecter etc…stamped. Springs, pretty sure those are outsourced. Safety doo-dads, extractor etc, mim (metal injected molding) in appearance to me, and the fact aftermarket offers machined parts seems to support this. AR platform, castle nuts, receivers, rails, triggers, BCG,buffers etc are metal. The furniture being Magpul was already mentioned, sights as well. Have yet to see any threading on a Glock, or a screw.
This gun was designed for a British contract per the vid, has full auto switch (ambi, can’t miss it), and host mentioned it perhaps going for US LE, as well as Brit mil…
I’d imagine a civilian version would be released, but this ain’t it.
Fwiw, when Colt had the M16/M4 government contract…I inspected the upper and lower receivers…but didn’t work at Colt. When I did work at Colt, the smartest engineer I knew said “you’re a slave to your vendor” meaning what they ship is what you get. He mentioned this after I rejected yet another purchase. Sadly, most companies adopted this approach, and lost in-house control of their product. As mentioned, this is why I like Daniel Defense. Aero Precision as well, aerospace shop turned gun manufacturer. POF another one, former head (rip Frank) aerospace engineer who understood how to maintain quality. Glock, like and trust mine, but realize a company hyping the G45 and releasing it before it was ready would have me waiting a year or two before buying a totally new offering of theirs, especially when so many solid AR manufacturers are out there.
Edit to add… thinking about how Glocks are mainly plastic, and my pleasant surprise buying an M&P and seeing the plastic frame encases at least some metal.
Your opening comment got changed with your follow up. I responded “this ain’t it” to your initial comment…if we ever truly got our rights back, well, I’d let you cut in line, right behind me :+1:
Employee discount, anyone? Got offered that at Colt when I almost went back lol…

I reckon Glock manufacturers more metal by tonnage into barrels than Daniel Defense does

Yeah, and so what’s your point? How many flash supressors, tapered barrels, nuts, bolts, BCG’ s, finished receivers, buffer tubes or hand guards has Glock made?
Pretty sure that’s why they’re on that hiring binge I linked.

So, what are we talking here? 5.56 mm Tupperware to go with your .40 cal Tupperware?

Edit: Don’t get me wrong, I have some Tupperware too.

That I don’t believe Glocks’ metal working to be all that limited. That I don’t believe a flash hider, nuts, bolts, etc, are likely to be particularly difficult to make for a firearms manufacturer as established and Glock.

And also that I doubt most AR manufacturers make things like flash hiders, nuts, bolts, etc, all in house anyway

How many current AR manufacturers make their own bolts? I’m pretty sure not even BCM does. Will Glock make their own? I don’t know the answer to that. Do they have to? I’d say no absolutely not, not if they don’t want to
