Glock 17 Gen 3 History
When you buy a Glock 17, you’re also buying more than 50 years of service behind it.
The company was founded by Austrian engineer Gaston Glock in 1963. The company originally produced steel and plastic parts, and Glock didn’t design his first firearm until after his 50th birthday. What Glock lacked in ballistics experience he made up for with his expertise in synthetic polymers, helping create the world’s first successful line of pistols with a nonmetal, polymer frame.
The company opened its first U.S. subsidiary in 1985, despite initial resistance about its “plastic guns.” The Glock 17 contributes to this legacy, helping substantiate the company’s claim as the most popular line of pistols for law enforcement agencies in America.
