      As it is, I think they're a cool kind of ugly, kind of like A-10s, pugs, and the Seattle Space Needle.

      Ok, I happen to really like the looks of humvee's, A-10's and pugs.. It's the "so ugly they're cute" factor I guess. hehehe

      I think the Glock has a lot in common with my motorcycle; a BMW R1150GS.

      Let me explain. Both the firearm and motorcycle are designed with form following function. In other words, they're both butt ugly to many people, but they do their intended job well.

      To their owners they are beautiful, or become beautiful, because they work so well.

      Maybe it has something to do with their country of origin. One is from Germany and the other Austria.....a coincidence?

      Glock's may rock but they feel like a block!
      You have to say it fast to get the true feel!

      I wouldn't change them unless there was a good reason to do so, that is one that could somehow make them better. I own three GLocks and they are dependable, reliable, and easily maintained. If you want pretty buy a Kimber. If you want dependability buy a Glock! No point in change just for the sake of vanity.

      Glock is defined by their look. To the untrained eye, every black semi-auto pistol is a Glock! What they really need to change is their feel.

      I voted for no change, but only because I would not expect them to change what I want changed. I would like the rail and finger grooves gone. That's the only thing I would change.

      I am a big fan of glock I have fired several and owned the 9mm. I curently own the 40. model 23. This is a great gun great accuracy out of the box. Good handle in my hand everything is great for me. I would not like to see any silver lettering or flashy stuff like that. Glocks are combat pistols not show pieces. The only problem that i have with them is i cant recommened them to any of my novice shooting friends because of there total lack of safety. I just dont feel good telling a new shooter to get a gun with no real safety on it. So, I guess that is what i would like to see a new line of civilian model glocks with with a thumb safety like the 1911. I am not an engineer so i dont know how they could make that work but i think it would increase there market. One last point is that for the quality they are a fairly reasonably priced weapon.

      Sorry forgot to address the plastic guide rod problem. I didnt like them in my glocks either so i replaced them with titanium rods for around 30 to 40 bucks. Problem solved. Just like taking a colt 1911 and adding an extended guide rod titanium firing pin and better guide spring. Maybe even a flash suppressor. These are all things that can be done cheaply and lend more accuracy and dependability to your gun.

      If you don't like the way it looks or feels - have it modified!

      I sent my frame in to get rid of the finger grooves, stipple the grip, round off the trigger guard and had the mag release scalloped for easier access. If you want a beavertail you can get one added.

      Still waiting for it to come back but I will post pics when it does.

      Check him out - Bowie Tactical Concepts - and no I am not related to him.

      Ive got a few Glocks, two 17's and a 26. I musta agree that i too think they are ugly a sin. Just a plain, flat no frills "cheap looking" thing, butwhen it comes to reliability and trust. Its number 1 in my book. My slide is so crappy looking form holster wear that i just might get a stainless slide for it. Just to chang eup the look a little.

      I am sure glock is going to make some with interchangeable cack straps in order to stay in competition with XDm's

      How interesting would it be though if they made an all steele from something like a 1911? nothing flashy just a thought

      I think an all metal model would be hard to get up to their standard of being nearly indestructible, since they'd rust. Changeable backstraps would be nice though...

      the 1911 was put through some of the same test as the glock and did not break.. ie the drive over it with a vehicle in grass, then on stone. It did not break and still worked. it endured many of the same test as the glock and still worked. (I was reading the book in borders about glocks.)

      I had no idea the Glock was ugly, until I started reading it on this site...!

      I own a Hummer and a Glock, so I guess I have no sense of style. I like both for the same reasons - they are all business, and the rugged, chiseled, square look really appeals to me. Here's my idea of the perfect Glock:

      hey the finish under the outer layer is stronger than the SS
      keep your existing slide

      i mean the look was something that turned me off when i was looking for my first gun. 1911's and my baby eagle were just sexy and drew me in

      Glock makeover

      I think if glock gave an optional sizing on the backstrap. A little smaller grip would fix alot of peoples trigger reach.

      And, maybe shave 1/16" off the width of the slide on the compacts and sub-compacts.

      These two changes and Glocks price point, would kill the competition.
