What Makes the Glock a Great Handgun?

Glock Handgun

Gaston Glock wasn’t a gunsmith. The engineer who invented the popular handgun that bears his last name didn’t even own a firearms factory when he introduced his pistol to the Austrian Army.  Gaston Glock thought outside the box, however, as Popular Mechanics learned during an interview with Paul Barrett, author of Glock: The Rise of America’s Gun.

There are several things that made – and still make – the Glock a great gun. Instead of six rounds, there were 17 in the magazine.  Unlike a traditional revolver, too, the Glock had a 5-pound pull instead of a 12-pound pull. Compared to other handguns, the Glock also had fewer parts, which means there are fewer parts to break. If you own a firearm like the Glock 23 handgun, what do you like about it?
