The Glorious Glock – America’s Weapon Of Choice!

In 1982, the Austrian company Glock Ges.m.b.H. released the Glock 17 to the civilian market. This innovative new firearm soon became a favorite of law enforcement and civilians alike due to its reliability and ease of use. Eagle Arms will look at the history of the Glock pistol and explore why it has become America’s weapon of choice!


The gun is made of polymer, making it lightweight and easy to handle. It also has several safety features, which makes it safe to use.

The Glock is manufactured by the Austrian company Glock Ges.m.b.H. It is a semi-automatic handgun that chambers 9mm bullets. The gun was first developed in the early 1980s, and it quickly became popular among law enforcement agencies and civilians alike. The Glock’s popularity can be attributed to many factors, including its low-price tag and its lightweight construction.


The Glock 17 comes with a safe-action safety system, meaning if you are idly handling your handgun, it won’t get triggered unless the safety is off. The beauty packs in a standard 17 for mag capacity but can go up to 33. It’s nearly a kilo at fully loaded, so conceal carry won’t be much of a hassle.

If you want some customization, there are options for magazines & lines of sight accessories. We suggest you take the polymer variant if you are an active target shooter.

Popular Highlights

The Glock 17 was the first commercially available Glock pistol, and it quickly became a favorite among law enforcement and civilians. The gun retails for around $500, which is considerably cheaper than most semi-automatic weapons.

Second, the Glock is lightweight. It is much lighter than most other handguns on the market at just over two pounds. It makes it easier to carry and conceal. Finally, the Glock is reliable. It has been tested and proven in many high-stress situations, making it a favorite among law enforcement and military personnel.

The Glock’s popularity is evident in the number of people who own one. There are an estimated 65 million Glocks in circulation worldwide, with over nine million guns located in the United States. The Glock has even made its way into popular culture, appearing in television shows like “The Walking Dead” and movies like “John Wick”, in which the protagonist uses a Glock 26.
