 GLOCK - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Its first pistol model was the GLOCK 17 (so named because it was the 17th patent of the company), a 9 mm Luger handgun with a 17 round capacity (unusually large at the time), introduced in the early 1980s as a response to the Austrian army asking for a new sidearm.
The GLOCK 22 is currently (as of mid-2005) the single most popular police sidearm in use in the United States; GLOCK pistols in general are in use by over 60% of the police officers in the US.
The GLOCK visibly does not have an external hammer and thus cannot be "cocked" or "uncocked" in the conventional manner and does not make the sort of sounds that are commonly heard in TV and movies.
