Overcoming early resistance and doubters, Glock’s Safe Action pistols have become a cultural icon, a staple of competitive shooting, and the single most popular handgun among law enforcement.
Originally introduced back in 1982 and derided as a “Plastic Gun,” Gaston Glock’s radical departure from modern pistol design has proven itself time and again in duty and combat.
Fast forward less than 40 years and according to Glock, their pistols are trusted by approximately 65% of America’s law enforcement professionals each and every day. They’re notorious for their unstoppable reliability and consistency.
In the meantime, Glock pistols have become a staple among top competitors with models like the Glock 34 and 17L becoming major contenders in practically every competition circuit in America.
That’s all due in large part to Glock’s amazing factory magazines …
Built from impact-resistant polymer with full-length steel inserts, Glock magazines give shooters the best of both worlds in a high capacity, ultra-durable package. These magazines are so consistent and so reliable that other manufacturers are using them for their new carbines and submachine guns like the (Kriss Vector).
It’s important to remember that double-stack Glock magazines are cross-compatible for certain calibers and sizes. So a full-size Glock 17 magazine (9mm) will work in smaller Glocks like the 19 and the 26. But a subcompact magazine for the 26 won’t work in the 17 because it’s too small.
