9mm start at Champion Firearms:
Glock Perfection. The
Glock 17 Gen5 is ideal for home defense, concealed carry or as a duty
weapon. It is a full-size, 9mm, polymer frame handgun that uses a locked
breach system referred to as "Safe Action". This is the
combination of a trigger safety, firing pin safety and drop safety that
render the loaded pistol incapable of firing, even when banged or
bumped, unless someone actually squeezes the trigger.
does not have a hammer, the spring loaded striker (firing pin) is
technically blocked off, partially retracted and not in geometric
alignment with a chambered cartridge. It is only by squeezing the
trigger, which fully retracts and then releases the striker, that makes
the pistol then capable of firing.
The absence of a hammer also provides a sleeker profile that reduces
both size and weight, while optimizing a smoother draw from concealment.
Glock 17 has the advantage of not having a manual safety, thus
eliminating the need to consciously think about deactivating such a
device during a deadly encounter. This is the ultimate point and shoot
50% fewer components than conventional handguns of the same caliber, it
means there are fewer parts to break, and you can literally disassemble
and then reassemble the gun within seconds.
frame is made out of a synthetic polymer that is actually stronger than
steel, yet 86% lighter and virtually indestructible. It can withstand
temperatures ranging from -40 F to +158 F and still continue firing. An
integral accessory rail provides the added benefit of quickly attaching
lasers and / or lights for low visibility applications. The ergonomic
grip angle is designed to allow the shooter to rapidly deploy the pistol
under stress fire conditions.
This series is referred to as
"Gen5" and has several noticeable upgrades over its Gen4 predecessors.
Most notable are the lack of finger groove and the addition of an
ambidextrous slide stop. The gun also wears the new nDLC finish which
is both highly wear and corrosion resistant.
The textured grip
allows for a more aggressive hold on the gun, especially in situations
where maximum traction and weapons retention could make the difference
between life or death. An enlarged reversible magazine release makes it
easier to perform reloads. A heavy duty recoil spring slightly reduces
kick and also extends pistol life. Glock supplies a third magazine with
Gen4 pistols that offers added firepower.
The Glock 17 Gen5
features an outstanding ergonomic design, where a highly efficient bore
axis-to-weight distribution ratio ensures controlled shots, even under
rapid fire conditions. In addition, the polymer frame also provides much
softer felt recoil than most conventional metal frame handguns. The
pistol weighs in at a little over 21- ounces and has a DAO trigger pull
of roughly 5.5 pounds.
Three full capacity 17- round magazines
are provided with Glock 17 Gen5 pistols. A set of white outline sights
sit on top of the slide, are highly visible, easy to use and track
reasonably well. The 4.49" Glock Marksman Barrel of the Glock 17 Gen5
provides greater accuracy than previous barrels.
"MOS" stands for Modular Optic System.
This is a specialized platform for mounting accessories or optics to
the pistol. A relief cut has been milled into the slide and the rear
sights have been moved all the way back to allow the shooter to easily
mount the most popular reflex sights that are available on the market
today. Advantage sincludes faster target acquisition, speed and longer
range accuracy. The pistol is shipped with a complete set of 4-
different adapter plates to fit a wide assortment of optics, along with a
Torx wrench and proper screws. The pistol weighs in at a little over
22.92 ounces and has a DAO trigger pull of roughly 4.5 pounds.
