Ever hear the joke about bringing a knife to a gun fight? Sometimes the knife maker, especially if it was Gaston Glock, former knife maker, turns out to be the best person possible to ask about a new type of gun. The Austrian army awarded Glock an arms contract in May of 1982. The Glock 17 won the contract as it’s designer had looked at the contemporary offerings of the time, asked specialists as to what they would like to see in a new hand gun, and then improved on their design to produce the Glock 17.
Glock’s design surpassed all the requirements and beat the competition alone in sheer round capacity; the second highest was a Beretta 92 with 15 rounds; the Glock 17, holds 17 rounds.
