Glock 17

The Glock 17 Gen 4 is a semi-automatic large-frame pistol chambered in 9mm. “Gen 4” means it is the fourth generation G17.

New features include removable back straps that allow shooters to adjust the grip for size and ease of use. Another new feature, the dual recoil pin, reduces recoil and increases the life cycle of the assembly. The grip texture is more aggressive, so it won’t slip when the shooter’s hands are sweaty or wearing gloves. And, an enlarged magazine release that’s easier to hit.

Otherwise it has standard Glock features such as a polymer grip that’s very lightweight at two pounds loaded. On the front of the grip are finger grooves for a solid hold. Its double-action trigger is also “safe-action” meaning the safety is on the trigger rather than the side. The only way a round can fire is if the shooter pulls the trigger because its internal design won’t allow the firing pin to punch forward any other way. This prevents accidental discharges if the pistol is dropped.

Glocks have a simple, dependable and easy-to-use design, which is why they’re the preferred handgun for many law enforcement agencies worldwide. Glock recommends the G17 Gen 4 for opened carry.
