Glock handgun
Glock handgun (trademarked as GLOCK) is a weapons manufacturer headquartered in Deutsch-Wagram, Austria, named after its founder, Gaston Glock. While the company is best known for its line of striker-fired polymer-framed pistols, it also produces field knives and entrenching tools.

Glock handguns are currently used by a majority of US and international law enforcement agencies and military personnel.[citation needed] Glock handguns are also very popular with civilians for personal protection and practical shooting, and the company sponsors a competitive shooting team which travels worldwide.[citation needed] It currently produces 39 models of handguns. The US-led Multi-National Force - Iraq has equipped the Iraqi military and the Iraqi National Police with Glock sidearms.

Glock handguns are common sidearms among law enforcement agencies and military organizations around the world. The popularity of Glock pistols can be attributed to a number of factors. They are said to be very reliable, being able to function under extreme conditions and to fire a wide range of ammunition types. Glock GmbH  The simplicity of the Glock design contributes to this reliability, as it contains a relatively small number of components (nearly half as many as the typical handgun) making maintenance and repair easier.


Comfortable handling and aiming. Can be dismantled without special. Ease of maintenance. There are only automatic safety-locks. Rustproof. Rear failures. Light weight and large magazine capacity. Ability to make first shot without any preparation. Good weapons balance.
