Glock Pistols: The Glock Story
Glock was founded by Austrian plastics expert Gaston Glock in 1963. Glock, who didn’t design his first firearm until late in his life, helped his company make a name for itself by first creating the Glock 17 for the Austrian military in the early 1980s. Glock established its U.S. headquarters shortly after that, and today it’s producing some of the most popular handguns in the world. Glock pistols have been modified several times through the years, as parts like frames, recoil springs, and magazines have been altered. In fact, fourth generation updates to popular Glock pistols like the Glock 17, Glock 19, Glock 22, and Glock 23 were made as recently as 2010.
Basic Glock Pistols Options, Features, and Uses
There are many types of Glock pistols available, including a full line of standard Glock pistols, compacts, subcompacts and competition pistols. Glock pistols are renowned for their “Safe Action” functionality, ease of operation, reliability, ease of maintenance, and affordability, among other attributes. Through all of the updates to Glock pistols over the years and the initial market concerns with using a “plastic gun,” Glock pistols are still some of the most popular handguns used by both amateurs and professional law enforcers. Today, Glock pistols are used by public law enforcement agencies, security services, and the military in at least 48 countries. Civilians can also use Glock pistols for recreation, defense, and concealed carry purposes.
