This past June I prepaid and pre-ordered a blue label Glock model 21C and was given a 6-8month expected lead time...

After waiting patiently all this time, I got word that as of 01/01/14 Glock is discontinuing all C model productions along with non-SF 20,21,29,30 Gen3 models...save for some future department special bulk orders (price and QTY TBD)... Would I ever see my 21C...?

After many emails back and forth from my LE Glock Dealer, they were able to confirm from Glock that the last produciton run C guns were going through the final stages of inspection and test firing - and thus should ship out in a matter of days...

Whew! Looking forward to my early X-mas present...! :)

Please feel free to post pics of your C models...I enjoy gun porn in anticipation of my very own...

Posted this before, but here is an interesting read on the topic.

http://www.guns.com/2013/09/05/state-glock-c-model-discontinuation/
I had read that article, and it makes sense... The quote that specifically got me was “If a customer wants to give us an order that shows sufficient demand for us to create some of these slower sellers, we can do that.”.

So just like they no longer "make" either the Gen1 pistols, Gen2 pistols, or the Gen2&3 model 24's anymore - all existing C models, along with Gen3 models 20,21,29,30 (as of 01/01/14) now fall into that category of "slow sellers".

However, they are willing to make a special production run for anyone with enough scratch to cover the minimum order QTY Glock deems required to tool up for the task...

Since traditional production runs are in batches of 1000, I would imagine that in order to see another factory produced C model, some serious cheddar would need to be promised...

Hmmm...gonna have lottery winning dreams now of contracting Glock to produce my own production run of Gen3 model 24C's...all with special serial number configurations to my own choosing... :)
