Animated Glock Diagram (http://www.genitron.com/Basics/Glock23/P2Glock.html)

This is a detailed description of inner workings of a Glock with an animation that shows the inter-workings of the moving parts. I have a Generation One Glock 17 and learned a few things from this animation.

I own two Glocks, a 17 and a 19. Both are stone cold reliable. Personally I think the Glock has all the eye-appeal of a cordless drill but the fact that it will make holes every time right where I want them makes up for that fact.

I have a first Gen Glock 17 also, it has never once failed to fire, stove piped or given me any issues what so ever, it is my go to gun. Tuesday I will be starting out on a 4000+ mile trip ending in Maine next spring...all my guns are in storage in my gun safe, except for my 17, thats going with me on the trip...

Oh, that is a superb animation of a Glock inner workings........I've seen several but believe that is the best. Thanks for posting that!

That's an awesome tutorial on how the Glock works. I was pretty impressed when I first started reading up on them, as to how SIMPLE they are. A Glock will definitely be the next auto I buy.

Glock 19 is one of the best firearms ever built IMO. Cool link brother Pict.

Yes definitely cool. I have been thinking about finding something similar online for my glock 19. Thanks for the info!

Very nice animation, thanks Pict

Thanks Pict! I also have a Glock 17 - not sure about the generation. Man - doesn't matter what I do (or don't do) but that thing keeps on firing straight and fast.

Glock 21 tortured to the extreme, 150,000+ rounds and even shot with a 22.

It took me years to warm up to it but I purchased a 34 practical tactical years back and have not had any problems, Wish it had a manual safety but can do with out but there is a company that will install a thumb operated safety on Glocks but was not impressed with the looks.

The only rounds that have choked my Glocks have been 95 grain reloads that were just too wimpy to cycle and Egyptian surplus smg ammo with primers so hard nothing would make them work reliably.

My dads 19 and 23 both have performed flawlessly for nearly my entire life. Only time it jams is with the .22 slide on it as far as I know.

The ex had a 19 I got her. She didnt like it all that much, but I started shooting it. I was surprised at how well it shot. I could hit the 18" plate at 300 yards a couple or so rounds out of a magazine after getting used to it. (If that seems outrageous, I had a freind that had several Glocks, including a pocket model. We took them out to the shoooting spot, and we could both hit the 300 yard plate with all of them after ranging in some and figuring out the sight hold)

It had the older type magazines, I had several failures with them, but new mags seemed to work well.

Great guns, but I'd just say, they are machines, and aren't perfect, in function or whatever. Very good? Yes. Perfect? No. Just something to keep in mind.

Oh, and here's another Glock function vid, it must be a 10mm :4:
