Glock

 

Glock pistols are among the most well known and widespread handguns in circulation throughout the world.  They are popular with civilian populations for personal safety, recreational or competitive shooting, and hunting.  Glocks are also commonly used as the sidearm of choice for various law enforcement personnel.  They are utilized by the likes of police officers, parole officers, and federal agencies such as the FBI.  In addition, Glocks have become exceedingly popular amongst the world’s armed forces as a reliable weapon in close combat scenarios.

 

Named after its founder Gaston Glock, the Glock “Safe Action Pistol” is produced at the company’s manufacturing headquarters in Austria.  While Glock has achieved worldwide popularity through its handguns, they also manufacture entrenching tools and knives among other items.  Glock’s production line currently outputs almost forty different varieties of pistols.

 

Reliability is perhaps the most outstanding feature that lends to the extreme popularity of Glocks.  They have a minimal amount of components compared to other handgun models, thus allowing for higher levels of simplicity when it comes to repair and general maintenance.  Glock pistols are also trustworthy in extreme conditions and can be relied upon under any number of situations.

 

Perhaps the most appealing feature of Glock handguns is their weight, as they are among the lightest pistols produced anywhere.  This allows for carrying the weapon for extended periods of time without dealing with the side effects and general nuisances of heavier weapons.  The ease with which these pistols can be transported and carried is seen as a major advantage compared to other handgun models. 

 

The main reason for the Glock pistol’s ease of transport and limited restrictions for personal mobility is its unique design.  Why are Glocks so light?  The answer is in their polymer frames.  Over 20 years ago Glock pioneered the use of polymer in handgun frames to industrially produce some of the world’s lightest, yet still reliable pistols.  Polymer is corrosion resistant, thus keeping maintenance needs to a minimum, and it is also more durable and more than eighty percent lighter than steel, which is another commonly used material in handgun frames and production.
