Since the release of the original GLOCK 17 in 1982, GLOCK pistols have become one of the most popular sidearms for law enforcement agencies, military forces, and civilian marksmen in the US and around the world.
GLOCK now produces several hundred variations of the famous handgun, now offering a wide selection of calibers, sizes, and designs. With so many options available, new gun-owners often agree that in current production the sheer number of different GLOCK handguns can be daunting.
Though GLOCK pistols share many features and aesthetics, each pistol is unique and has its own benefits. Even the same model of GLOCK pistol can have different feature sets as it evolves between generations, so it’s important to know the fine differences between the pistol models and their generational updates.
