About the Gun

The Gen 4 series of Glock pistols were introduced in 2010. Like most new polymer framed pistols the Gen 4 series features interchangeable grip inserts. The Gen 4 series also incorporates a dual recoil spring assembly, a feature only in previous generations' compact models. Other features include a reversible magazine release, a Tenifer matte finish slide and new grip texture. Changes in the Gen 4 design are significant enough such that not all parts can be mixed and matched with previous Glock generations.

About the Cartridge

This cartridge was developed as a joint venture between Winchester and Smith & Wesson. It was an effort to to create a cartridge with the same power as the 10mm Norma round that the FBI had just started using, but in a shorter case. The shorter cartridge would facilitate accuracy and allow use of a smaller, more comfortable grip frame. The .40 S&W has become the cartridge of choice for many law enforcement agencies in the United States.

What can you say 'bout GLOCK that ain't been said already? Fantastic pistol that is as tough as a Sherman tank and very accurate with .40 cal knockdown power. Has been my nightstand handgun for the past half decade. 100% confident that my GLOCK 23 will function each and every time. The G23 is my SHTF pistol, enough said.
