Here is a history recap and some extra information about Glock.
In 1963, in Deutsch-Wagram, Austria, Glock was created. Eager business man and manufacturer of molding parts Gaston Glock begun his journey into creating a firearm empire. In its early stages, Glock started out as a company producing “a line of knives, grenade casings and machine gun belt links”1 but did not produce its first gun until the early 1980s. The first Glock run of Gen 1 started off in Austria as a response to wrapping up The Cold War, improving gun reliability, and safety for Austria’s military. The cold war took place from 1947- 1991. Austria was a “Cold War neutral state. It played a crucial role as a mediator and ‘bridge builder’ between East and West.”2 To reduce the chance of accidental firearm discharge, Gaston Glock offered a firearm with “three internal safeties – the trigger, firing pin and drop safeties.”3 Word of the Glock Gen 1 spread and the Glock Gen 1 soon after was sold in the USA.
Over the years Glock produced many pistols and accessories. Below is a chart to show some of the more popular models and the dates that they were released.
