Default Glock page renames

Can I propose renaming the pistol page to Glock pistol series to go along with other similar pages (Beretta 92 pistol series, M1911 pistol series, etc.) and the manufacturer page to Glock Ges.m.b.H.?

I'm okay with changing the name for the pistols, but Glock Ges.m.b.H. seems a bit specific. Glock, Inc has to produce far more pistols, right?

That's the name of the company according to both Wikipedia and an Internet search.

Yes, but Ges.m.b.H. just denotes the type of business entity. Once you take that away, all that's left is what we already have. Unless you're also suggesting we change H&K to "Heckler & Koch GmbH" or Beretta to "Fabbrica D' Armi Pietro Beretta S.p.A.", why do it for Glock?

I've renamed the pistol page, but someone will have to make working redirects or tell me how to do so.
