The surface of the frame employs the new scientifically designed, real-world-tested, Gen4 rough textured technology. Also available in MOS configuration.
Glock 17 Gen4 Pistol Features
Internally, the new GLOCK dual recoil spring assembly substantially increases the life of the system. A reversible enlarged magazine catch, changeable in seconds, accommodates left or right-handed operators. The G17 Gen4 9x19mm pistol also retains the GLOCK accessory rail for your attachments.
The back strap modifications doesn’t change the grip angle of the GLOCK “Safe Action” Pistol. This ensures that the shooter does not shoot high or low when modifying the back strap or when shooting with a different GLOCK Pistol.
Additionally, the Glock 17 Gen4 has a new Rough Textured Frame (Gen4 RTF) surface designed to enhance grip traction and is present on the frame as well as the interchangeable back straps.
Internally, a dual recoil spring assembly replaced the original recoil spring. The dual recoil spring assembly noticeably reduces the recoil while simultaneously increasing the life cycle of the assembly.
GLOCK Test Firing
During development every GLOCK pistol is test fired with overcharged ammunition to establish its safety prior to delivery. A laser target test device was developed to precision test fire GLOCK pistols. This is to coordinate the hit pattern with the line of sight. Every GLOCK customer can rely on receiving a weapon that has been tested in the factory. It will operate reliably “out of the box” without compromises or expensive additions, guaranteed!
Engineered to the same standards, the Glock 17 can withstand the same tortures as any of the other GLOCK pistols
