The GLOCK pistol's Safe Action trigger system offers you several
very distinct benefits over conventional trigger systems. First, you can choose
from several trigger pulls. Second, the trigger is the one and only operative
control. Third, is the smooth and consistent pull you feel every time you
squeeze the trigger. It makes training much easier because each and every shot
feels exactly the same. It also makes a firearm safe.
GLOCK pistols have three
independent and automatic safeties. As the trigger is pulled they sequentially disengage,
and as the pistol fires and the trigger returns to its forward position, they
re-engage. The combination of the trigger safety, firing pin safety
and drop safety make the GLOCK the safest pistol on the market.
GLOCKs have about 50% fewer
components than conventional handguns of these calibers. The GLOCK 17, for example, has only 33 parts. A couple of
pins. No screws. So there are fewer parts to break. And you can break down and
reassemble any GLOCK pistol with one simple
tool. That's all there is to it.
The frame on a GLOCK handgun is made out of a synthetic that is actually
stronger than steel, yet 86% lighter. It's virtually indestructible. A GLOCK pistol can withstand temperatures ranging from
-40°C (-40 F) to +70°C (+158 F) and still come out firing.
components on a GLOCK are practically
indestructable. That's because they're finished with a unique surface treatment
called Tenifer that makes those parts virtually as hard as a diamond. It is
even more corrosion resistant than stainless steel.
GLOCK handguns are designed with a grip angle
that's so comfortable, so natural, it complements your instinctive shooting
abilities. This ergonomic design features a superb bore axis and weight
distribution to ensure a controlled shot, even under the most adverse
conditions. Plus, the special polymer frame, of which the grip is an integral
part, results in a much softer recoil than that of conventional guns, which
only adds to your control. The unique GLOCK
barrel features hammer-forged rifling for increased velocity and even greater
accuracy. With a GLOCK's consistent trigger pull
and excellent pointability, there's a very good chance you'll be hitting your
targets for a long, long time.
