Though competitors have had 40 years to catch up, the 17+1 striker-fired Glock G17 9x19 mm semi-automatic remains the reference in its expansive niche.

Austrian company Glock’s 17th patent was its now famous Glock G17, hence the name. The pistol was developed in 1982 in consultation with many outside experts in response to an Austrian army requirement for a new sidearm.

Using parts from the existing parts bin where possible, polymer construction, modern manufacturing, and a meticulous design keeping the gun to about 40 parts, the result was a reliable, accurate and affordable semi-automatic pistol.

The rest has been history. Glock G17 is now a 5th Generation gun. The G17’s advantages captivate competitors, many of whom dissect this product to faithfully replicate it or its best attributes. Yet somehow, in spite of its conservative design that includes, among other things, vertical grip serrations at the back of the slide and none in front, it stays ahead of the pack.

While the standard capacity is 17+1 thanks to its standard high-capacity 17-round magazine, there are also 19, 24, 31 and 33-round magazine options. All these are double-stack magazines featuring counting holes.

Magazine capacity aside, other key metrics are a 4.49” long cold hammer forged barrel housed in a slide that’s 7.32” long and 1.0” wide. Sight radius varies depending on type. Glock Night Sights (GNS) have a 6.42” radius; steel: 6.46” and polymer sights generously span 6.50”.

Height, including the slightly protruding magazine, comes to 5.47”. Width at the broadest point (which is across the grips) is 1.26” and overall length is 8.03”. The trigger distance from the back of the grip to the trigger face is 2.83”. Finally, weight without the magazine is 22 ounces while a loaded magazine adds 10.3 ounces more to a 32.3 ounce total.

As this is a 5th generation gun (Gen5 in Glock parlance), it has an ambidextrous slide stop lever and a reversible magazine catch. Moreover, the black polymer frame has been designed for an optimal grip angle and uses hardened steel guides. It also has an integrated single-slot accessory rail under the recoil spring housing.

The G17 uses a Safe Action trigger system with 6.3 pounds of factory-set trigger pull. The Safe Action system utilizes a trigger safety that blocks the trigger from moving back until the safety is pulled. There is also a firing pin bar safety, drop safety and loaded chamber indicator.

The trigger guard has a vertical front face that curves forward a tad at the bottom. Within the guard perimeter is plenty of room for a gloved finger.

The pistol grip has a three finger recesses, horizontal studded serrations, a short toe in front and a gentle palm swell in back. The sides are textured.

The G17 has ambidextrous minimalist slide stop levers and squared magazine releases instead of the circular ones common to many other guns.

The Glock G17 is made by both Glock in Austria and by Glock USA, based in Smyrna, Georgia.
