When you look at the current and past Glock lineup, it's like they just don't know where to go or who they are. Wonder what people got moved where at corporate to get like this.

Isn’t the Glock nomenclature based upon their design chronology? If you start with the 17 and continue chronologically, you can track the evolution and direction of the company very clearly.

Does it make sense? Not really...but it is their design and company. They can call it whatever they want. We don’t have to like it.

Someone on another forum had summarized all the models and mentions:

“You can see what design directions the company went in. First a regular one, then a machine pistol, then a compact and a longslide. Then they branched out ito 10mm, .45, and .40, and made compact and longslide .40s, and a .380. Then they introduced all the subcompacts almost all at once. Then all the .357s. Then the two new longslides. Then the slimline, then all the .45 GAPs...”

It's based on patent numbers.
