One of Glock’s representatives was kind enough to show and demonstrate a prototype for a new frame-mounted combat light that’s pretty sweet, and will probably cause Glock users to fall all over themselves, and each other, to get one. The unit simply snaps right onto the 3rd Generation light-mounting rails. When the operator needs to remove it he/she can snap it right back off. The prototype that I handled worked perfectly and looked good, even though it appeared to be a little larger than the well known M3 Streamlight. Once snapped on, the Glock unit seemed totally secure. I didn’t want to pull on it too hard, since it was one of only two prototypes.
To see pics of the new Glock factory light mount, along with Glock’s new clamshell hardcase-style pistol box, which will replace the now traditional Glock tupperware box, click on this link. The photos were taken by Matt Kartozian of "Custom Glock Racing". Matt does a bang-up job over there, by the way. If you like Glocks, you owe it to yourself to check out Matt’s website.
