That's easy. model 34 9mm
That's easy. model 34 9mm
I have been a .40 fan for years but my fav changed the day I bought a 10mm.
i went to the local gun range today, and took a good look at the various glocks they had in their display case. To me they all looked the same... they all are a boxy plastic grip with a boxy slide sitting low on the frame... infact the guy at the counter also took a quick couple of seconds to remind/educate us on a good grip technique to avoid getting cut/smashed or otherwise damaged by the slide during action...
so my question is the same as the one above, what significant differences are there between models... i tried out a G17 today and liked it quite a bit, but didn't care to try out all the rest seeing how that could get costly very quick...
I ask cause my father was there too and tried it, and liked it more so than my P99... it was the QA as opposed to AS for my P99...
All comments are appreciated...
They are all shaped the same. There are different sizes, and different calibers.
9mm, 45, 10mm, 40 cal, 357 sig and 45 GAP. Different sizes for each. Essentially, that is the only difference.
I have owned a G17, 19, 26 and 34. I only have a G34 now. It is my fav Glock out of all the models. It comes with an option of getting one with a lighter trigger pull, and has an extended mag and slide release. With the lighter trigger, I don't shoot low and to the left like I have always done with all prev Glocks I have ever shot.
The 26, 27, 28, 33 and 39 all have the same size frame.
The 19, 23, 25, 32 and 38 all have the same size frame.
The 17, 17L, 18, 22, 24, 31, 34, 35 and 37 all have the same size frame.
The 20 and 21 have the same size frame.
The 29 and 30 have the same size frame.
The 36 has a frame all to itself.
I think thats it - 6 sizes of frames for the entire line of pistols.
I'd have to say the 9mm because I have loved my G17 generation one. I've had it for over 20 some years and still love shooting it.
I like the 17 for originality, and the 19 and 26. 9mm all the way. I've had others, including a .357 SIG that I hated.
The 34 shoots great, though. Can't ask for a better Glock trigger.
I think different calibers recoil differently in certain guns, so that might make a difference to you. I can't stand .357 SIG in a Glock, for instance. On the other hand, 10mm handles rather pleasantly in Glock, don't ask me why.
The 34 and its ilk are Glock's more or less competition gun. They have a few more bells and whistles, but nothing major except a lighter stock trigger.
That's my opinion.:smt171
9mm in the form of the best gun for the money - the G34
I've had a 23/gen 2 frame since '95 and I like the .40, it's a nice round IMO. I'll admit that I got the weapon because of the hype about the .40 round and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I quickly returned to the .45ACP. Hands down my favorite handgun round. I went back to spending my time with my 1911's. I put the Glock in it's plastic box and it sat. Well, last year I decided to bring it to the range because a friend of mine-new shooter, was asking alot about Glock handguns. Well after shooting it that day, I was newly enamored with it's beautiful simplicity and pure function. A true bare bones combat handgun. I quickly aquired a G30 in .45 and now my 1911's are getting their rest. I love Glock.
Looks like the .40 caliber wins!
I'd have to say the G21. Just because the recoil is so smooth.
This poll is VERY bias! I can't check all the calibers???? Besides you did not list the .380? :mrgreen:
I think I like the Glock 23 the best. .40 S&W is potent and shootable. The Glock 23 has a good balance between capacity and concealability. I like the Glock 19 also, but I'd sacrifice two rounds to have .40 S&W instead of 9mm.
I got a G19 and I love it to death. It easy to cary since it is compact, and all Glocks are easy to firled stirp for the necessary cleaning required.
G17 Rule the Roost!:smt023
lol @ 45 GAP Stats, Gaston must have had a brainfart when he came up with this.:nutkick:
I own a Glock in all available calibers EXCEPT the .380acp which isn't available to civvies here.
My FAVORITE caliber is 9mm. I own Hi Powers, 1911's and even a Smith & Wesson Mod 547 revolver in 9mm.
Why is the 9mm my favorite?
INEXPENSIVE to shoot, reload, and practice with. Let's face it...a 9mm+P+ is a damned effective anti-goblin round. I have zero problem packin' a 9. BUT...like all true southwestern gentleman...I carry a .45ACP as a defense round.
My usual choice in a carry caliber is .45acp in a Glock 30 platform.
But I also am having a love affair with the 45GAP in the Model 37, and 39. I like that frame size. Once I get off my lazy butt and install my night sights...I may carry the 39.
357 Sig, please.
I've only owned 1 Glock and it is the 19, still have it as me primary carry gun. So for me it's gonna be 9mm
Another vote for 357SIG.
