About the Handgun:
Selective fire variant of the Glock 17. This machine-pistol-class firearm has a lever-type fire-control selector switch, installed on the left side of the slide, in the rear, serrated portion. When selected the Glock 18 provides fully-automatic fire at a cyclic rate of 1,300 rounds per minute. This rather rare model is for military use only and is not available for the civilian market.
About the Manufacturer:
Founded by Gaston Glock in 1963, this precision-engineering business surprised the world in 1983 by winning a contract to provide 25,000 pistols for the Austrian army - having never made a pistol before. This venture met with great success however, and Glock's guns have acquired such a sound reputation for reliability and simplicity that subsidiaries have been opened in the US, Hong Kong and Uruguay. By the year 2000 more than 2.5 million guns had been sold to military and police forces in a hundred countries.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was introduced along with the Luger semi-automatic pistol. The pistol and cartridge was first adopted by the German Navy in 1904 and then by the German Army in 1908. This cartridge has since been adopted by the military of practically every non-Communist power. It has become the most popular and widely-used handgun cartridge in the world. Performance wise, the 9mm cartridge has somewhat more power than the .38 Special but falls well short of the .357 Magnum.
