Glock Alerts New Summer Models
Dr. John Woods 05.24.17
It has been in vogue for several years for gun manufacturer’s to make special, limited edition production runs of certain firearm models. Ruger does this all the time with limited models sold through special exclusive outlets like Gallery of Guns, Lipsey’s and others. Accordingly these models gain instant popularity among shooters and collectors alike.
So, following this marketing strategy, Glock has announced a very special run of Glock handgun models for this summer. Beginning on or about June 1, Glock will be bringing out models designed to address the needs and interests of Glock customers. Glock notes that while some models will have a specific targeted purpose, other models will take on a much broader appeal sure to find interest among a lot of Glock users.
First on the list of these special editions will be Glock 17s and 19s Gen 4s with front slide serrations, steel sights, and extended pistol controls for easier user access. These are rather unique enhancements added to Glock pistols based on customer interest. The front slide serrations alone will permit easier slide manipulations, pistol charging and disassembly.
Glock will also be offering their G17C and G19C Gen4s with compensated slides. A host of Glock pistols will be offered in an olive drab “OD” finish including the models 17, 19, 26, 34, and the 43.
Each of these special production run models will of course be backed by Glock’s traditional promise of safety, reliability, and simple operation. Also each of these special summer edition pistols will be offered at affordable consumer pricing.
As an added bonus, Glock has also announced that the company will begin producing pistols equipped with factory installed night sights. These night sights will be self-luminous with a 3-dot format to add superior low light shooting functionality. The night sights will be available on the G17 Gen4, G19 Gen4, G42 and G43. These models should become very popular as they start to appear on dealers’ shelves. Check all this out at their web site at www.glock.com.
As a noted sidebar, Glock shoppers may begin to see pistol models at local dealers and some big box stores in various new color combinations including two-toned versions. Most of these have shown up so far in desert tan or a 2-tone in tan and matte black. These are especially handsome versions of Glock pistols. Better shop for one quickly, as they should not last long.
