So I've checked into the GLOCK Event. We're outside of Atlanta at the FoxHall Resort. The place is country chic and I still can't get a clue what the big reveal will be tomorrow. GLOCK's people are tight lipped, like a seized up slide on a HighPoint.
Introduction of the model 44. Why has GLOCK completely ignored a model 44? Is the number 44 bad luck in Austria? Is this the lost waited single stack .45 ACP? Wouldn't it have made more sense to name chamber the model 45 in .45 ACP?
A commercial version of the GLOCK model 47. You know G47 models will eventually hit the commercial market just like the FBL GLOCK 17M guns. BTW-I hear 19M pistols will hit the market in December.
In the hand the G21 SF still had a flat, boxy feeling across the weak side grip, but the SF was nevertheless more pleasant to handle. In fact, we thought the SF did the best job of handling recoil, especially when firing the 230-grain FMJ rounds that produced the most felt recoil.
Running the G17 Gen 5 and G19 Gen 5 MOS pistols through their paces, I found there are a variety of small, compact red dot reflex sights available. What features do I like in a reflex sight? The Shield Sights RMS-W is a great option.
The GLOCK 18 is a selective-fire variant of the G17. The G18 was first produced in 1986, and features a lever-type fire-control selector switch, installed on the serrated portion of the rear left side of the slide.
