About Glock 17
Glock Ges.m.b.H., trademarked as Glock is one of the most famous and successful firearm producer, well known all over the world. Engineer Gaston Glock, company's founder who had no experience with firearms manufacture or design, became one of the most successful firearms designer of all times. Glock had extensive experience in advanced synthetic polymers, knowledge of which was very important in the company's design of the first commercially successful line of polymer frame pistols.
Beginnings of this company were very interesting. Gaston Glock overheard a talk of two Austrian colonels, who were talking about the Army's Request for Proposal(RFP) for new short firearm. Glock asked the colonel if they need a new gun and he get a positive answer. He started the project immediately but as it were just a hobby for him. He had never used any gun before. He bought Walther P38, standard Austrian army duty gun, CZ 75, Beretta 92, Sig Sauer P220 9x19mm pistols. He started to stripe them down and when he found out how it is constructed he assembled them again. This method helped him to assimilate their manufacturing procedures and mechanical principles necessary for gun producing. Austrian army appealed to him that he has to show serial production gun for tests, not a prototype.
Glock answered he could design completely new gun in fixed term. So the construction of their new gun would not be so difficult, the gun should be made of less than 40 parts, that were placed in independent subgroups such as trigger mechanism, safety set and so on. It allowed to gunsmiths easy and quick replacing.
The Glock 17 is a semi automatic pistol that reached iconic status some time ago, although it’s almost 30 years old model. Glock 17 is probably what most shooters think of when they think about the Glock pistols. Apparently, nobody’s going to radically mess with the enormous popularity enjoyed by the Glock. However, the low-profile tweaks, enhancements or improvements within the basic framework are another matter. It pretty much covers what’s been done with the new model of the 17, called Gen4.
The pistol can be left as is, in the short frame configuration. The 17 was originally designed as 9×19mm Parabellum pistol model, with a maximum magazine capacity of 17 rounds. Several versions of the 17 that a bit differ, have been successfully introduced to the market. For instance, the model 17L with an extended barrel and longer slide was introduced in 1988. Originally, model 17L had three holes at the top of the barrel and also a corresponding slot in the slide, however, later production pistols lack the holes in the barrel. The 17C, with slots that are cut in the barrel and slide compensating for recoil and muzzle rise, was introduced to the market in 1996. Many other Glock models now have this option. In general, all with a "C" suffix on the slide. Model 17MB is a version with ambidextrous magazine catch. The 17MB, along with the other MB variants, was discontinued upon the introduction of the fourth-generation Glock models, which features a reversible magazine catch.
