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 9 mm cartridge has somewhat more power than the .38 Special but falls well short of the .357 Magnum.

Differences between the first batch of Glock 17 Ge
By MrH9mm on 08 Sep 2021
It should be noted that the Glock 17 Gen 5 first batch of releases had no front slide serrations and has a half-moon cut out on the front grip. The front slide serrations were added after initial consumer complaints about the lack of front serrations as well as the removal of the half-moon cut out due to complaints. I believe in time this first batch of Glock Gen 5's will become collectable, due to the changes in the early stages of the Gen 5 release.
