There are many reasons to get a GLOCK: The Austrian manufacturer's pistols are reliable, uncomplicated, robust, precise, comparatively inexpensive and, hand on heart - also damn cool. What many beginners do not know, however: There is no such thing as the one Glock ; in fact, Glock offers about 50 different models. Each model is designed to fulfill a specific purpose and to be optimally suited for a specific requirement profile. Most of the models are now in their fifth generation, which means that they have already undergone various updates to optimize their use. GLOCK therefore offers the ideal pistol for every requirement.
Pistols in their standard version represent a basic model designed to meet all requirements.
Compact pistols have a shorter barrel, a shortened breech and a lower height than the standard model.
Longslide pistols are equipped with a longer bolt system. The longer sight line lets the target take aim faster, but makes the pistol less manageable and compact.
A Compact Slim model has an extra slim grip, which makes it more comfortable to carry.
Competition pistols have a slightly shorter barrel compared to the long slide model. In addition, the rear sights can be exchanged.
Subcompact pistols are pocket-sized handguns with double-row magazines. The weapon is ideal as a backup weapon
Subcompact Slimline guns are built even slimmer than the already very compact Subcompact models. They are perfect for concealed carry.
