Glock G23 40 S&W Compact


Glock G23 40 Auto Compact


.40 GLOCKS "All-Round Versatile Performers"

The introduction of the .40 caliber cartridge was a revelation to the law enforcement and self-defense community. Never before in the history of small arms has a single cartridge caught on so quickly, and never before has a series of pistols been so sought after by police agencies and individuals.

With the GLOCK 23, the size is reduced somewhat for easier concealment, but the performance is still on a level of a serious big bore.  These pistols are so impressive that the FBI recently adopted them for issue.

"Safe Action" System

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.


Three Safeties

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.

High-Impact Resistant Polymer

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 -40C (-40 F) to +70C (+158 F) and still come out firing.

Tenifer Process

The metal 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 point ability, there's a very good chance you'll be hitting your targets for a long, long time.
