Glock 46

Comes with a rotating barrel instead of the common tilting barrel. Wonder if it'll ever make it here

What is the rationale for the rotating barrel? The only thing I saw mentioned in the article was improved durability but that has always been a plus in the column for Glocks anyway. Do they have test results for superior accuracy from that design, or something else, or what am I missing?

Just another solution to the same problem. They’re were claims of better accuracy and softer recoil when Beretta introduced their Cougar line which was replaced by the Storm line.

That about sums it up.

Take down is also interesting. Apparently can be done by removing the striker instead of having to pull the trigger first. Prolly cuts down ADs.
