The 2021 Master Journal--with GLOCK Serial Numbers--Is Complete!
Thank you to all the members for your patience. I know it has taken a while to finish the Master Journal and we have. It is with the printer and you will receive your copy in 3 to 4 weeks. Stan and I would especially like to thank Ron Bank for his technical assistance in putting together this latest Master Journal.
As you may know, the Master Journal is revised and published each time GLOCK introduces a new pistol. And in the past few years there have been many GLOCK pistols released. The the most current pistols to be introduced are the Gen5 .40 S&W guns. There are five .40 S&W Gen5 guns released: G22, G22 MOS, G23, G23 MOS, G27 and G35 MOS. The Matrix has been updated to reflect the First Run of new Gen5 .40 caliber pistols. The Matrix is also part of the Master Journal.
For this Master Journal we bulked up the issue to 38 pages of GLOCK specs, history, lore, and trivia. One notable story is about GLOCK cutaway pistols and we have images of the original G17 cutaway used by the former Vice President of GLOCK Inc., USA. Image how many police chiefs around the nation were first introduced to GLOCK pistol with this gun.
Another interesting story is about the development of the G19, which is the most popular GLOCK pistol model. Many trainers consider the G19 the entry GLOCK as it is near perfect for conceal carry, has excellent balance, and is easy to shoot. Did you realize the G19 was developed by cutting down a G17? Yes, Gaston's guys took a saw to a G17 to create the G19. We have images of the actual first G19 pistol created. Plus we have early GLOCK G19 serial numbers and prefixes.
