Why GLOCK is a Sure Shot

GLOCK pistols are the perfect combination of reliability and accuracy. Their high-tech engineering and construction create a handgun that can stand up to more punishment than even the most unforgiving conditions can generate. When you investigate the individual advantages of a GLOCK, you'll see that it will outperform whatever you're shooting now.

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 single 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 reengage. 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 G17, for example, has only 34 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 of a GLOCK handgun is made out of a synthetic that's actually stronger than steel, yet 86% lighter. It's virtually indestructible. It's impervious to sand, sweat, even salt-water. A GLOCK pistol can withstand temperatures ranging from -40°C (-40°F) to +70°C (+158°F). And still come out firing.

Tenifer Process

The metal components on a GLOCK are practically indestructible. 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.

"Safe Action" System

The "Safe Action" system consists of three (3) automatic independently operating mechanical safeties which are sequentially disengaged when pulling the trigger and which are automatically re-engaged when releasing the trigger.

Without actuating the trigger it is not possible that a shot is fired.

The revolutionary trigger system consists of:

Trigger safety

Firing pin safety

Drop safety

Furthermore the "Safe Action" system provides a constant trigger pull weight and a constant trigger travel from the first shot up to the last shot. GLOCK pistols are safe when dropped, when they receive any other abnormal shocks and are fully functional at temperatures from -40° to +70° Celsius.

The GLOCK "Safe Action" system has revolutionized the handgun industry and has been widely adopted by law enforcement and other official users as well as commercial and competition/combat shooting areas due to its simple, fast, safe and reliable application.

The main advantage of the GLOCK "Safe Action" system is that is has no external safeties. Because of this, the user can fully concentrate on the tactical tasks required whilst being in a stress situation and does not need to think about any safeties to be deactivated.

Trigger Safety

The trigger safety is a mechanical safety which is incorporated into the trigger in the form of a lever. In the untouched state the trigger safety blocks the trigger from being moved backward. If the weapon is dropped or if the trigger is subjected to an off-center, lateral pressure, it is still impossible for the gun to fire.

This safety can only be released by the trigger being pulled by the trigger finger. It automatically re-engages after the trigger is released.

This situation offers maximum possible firing readiness combined with maximum safety for the user.

Firing Pin Safety

In the secured position the firing pin safety mechanically prevents the firing pin from moving forward. A spring-loaded pin projects into the firing pin cut-out and blocks it.

As the trigger is pulled towards the rear, an extension on the trigger bar pushes the firing pin safety up and opens the firing pin channel.

This safety can only be released by the trigger being pulled to the rear.

This situation offers maximum possible firing readiness combined with maximum safety for the user.

Drop Safety

In the secured position the firing pin pushes the trigger bar onto the safety ramp under the influence of the firing pin spring.

There is no possibility in this position of the firing pin being released.

This drop safety can only be released by the trigger being pulled to the rear.

This situation offers maximum possible firing readiness combined with maximum safety for the user.
