    There are already compact, single stack 9mm's out there. If they are selling well enough, Glock will certainly introduce their own version.

    I'm not so sure. The American civilian market for such a gun would be a tiny drop in the giant Glock bucket. Glock already sells all the guns they make. It may not be worthwhile for them to divert R&D time and production capacity away from the hi-cap police/military guns that they sell by the boatload.

    They'd probably need a slimmer slide, in addition to the smaller frame, to compete with the narrow Kahrs, KelTecs, Rohrbaugh, etc. This means they lose the production ease they have with, for example, the 26, which is a very direct descendant of the 17.

    Also consider the Glock 36, the "slimline" .45. It is the slowest-selling Glock with the exception of the GAPs. Glock may look at that near-failure and consider a slimline 9mm just as risky.

    I'm sure the other guys, particularly Kahr, hope that's true.

    I'd buy a single-stack 26 in a heartbeat.
    Amen on that bro. A single stack 26 would rule the planet.

When I put in in my nightstand drawer, I can switch to a full length mag from a 17 and have an easy-to-shoot high-cap pistol.

    It is wider than I'd like, but all guns are compromises, and the 26 somewhat makes up for its fatness with versatility.
    Agreed again. The 26 its just a bit too chubby.

The 26 is very effective with the full length mag, and the practical difference between it and my Glock 17 for HD is negligible.
    Other than giving up a bit of velocity.

    Id love a smaller 26 for bike riding/walks in the park etc. But my G19 seems to be the perfect concealed carry weapon size wise. I do carry my Sigpro as well even thought its a bit bulkier than the 19.

    And some sight radius, too, but I don't think either matters much at HD distances. I don't get too wound up about a few dozen foot pounds of energy or an inch of sight radius, when the guy I'll have to shoot will likely be ten feet away or less.

    IDK, People are practically begging for a single stack 9 over at GlockTalk. I think they'd sell quite well.

    I agree as I don't like my finger waving in the breeze on my main carry pistol. I sure like having that extra 1" on the grip.

    Oh yeah. I've been clamoring for a single stack version of the 26 for years now.

    A true pocket Glock would blow away Walther, Kel-Tec, and Kahr.

    I still can't believe that we don't have such an animal.
