The Brief History of Glock 9mm
The history of the Glock 9mm arms factory, started in its foundation in the year of 1963, by the engineer Gaston Glock. Located in the town of Deutsch-Wagram in Austria, the company until the 1970s produced small pieces of plastic, such as curtain rings, among other small metal objects. From this date, realizing the strength of his company, Glock then began to manufacture military accessories such as trench tools, training garnets made of plastic parts and ammunition belts for machine guns, thus supplying the Austrian army. In early 1980, the company was visited by the Austrian Ministry of Defense. Glock listened to the conversation of two colonels, who were discussing the Army’s Solicitation Proposal for the production of new pistols to equip their force. The Colonels criticized that they had been waiting for five years for pistols that could meet their demands, and that the selected brands were not able to supply them, one of the brands was the renowned Steyr. When Glock was asked about the making of the pistols, Glock received the answer: “We have to find someone who can produce a gun according to our specifications and pass all our tests.” Glock was interested in producing such weapons, and after a brief conversation with the graduates explaining their demands, Glock said it would not be so difficult to produce such weapons. Officers said Glock’s offer would be welcome, but it should be done in a very short time and the pistol to be presented should be a serial production, not a prototype. A timely idea, conceived by a newcomer in the field of weapons production, among several renowned factories, left the officers in doubt. Gaston Glock began designing his new weapon immediately. In 1980 Glock went to study and investigate the mechanism and operation of the best pistols of the time, since he had never had contact with firearms until that opportunity. He then bought a Beretta 92FS, a Sig Sauer P220, a CZ75 and a Walther P38 (standard weapon of the Austrian army at the time.), All guns were in 9mm Parabellum caliber (9x19mm). He dismounted piece by piece from each weapon and reassembled, a simple but efficient method to understand how things work, and the weapons would not be out of it. After understanding the operation of the pistols, Glock began researching patents made for short guns, which helped him learn and choose the best and newest technologies to add to his design. Even after learning the basics of the operation of weapons and their technologies, it was necessary to have the help of experts in this area. He then met on 08/05/1980 with the specialists: Siegfried F. Hubner, German specialist of firearms and also (considered) the creator of the combat shot in Europe; Richard Silvestri and Friedrich Dechant are also experts in the field. During the meeting, Glock asked them to write what their request for a pistol would look like in the future, projected in 10 years or more. His guests wrote their ideas on the premise of a weapon that would be used by the Armed Forces and Security Forces. Regarding the flaws of the pistols of the time (accidental firing, flaws, safety problems, maintenance and expenses with the weapon) they wrote the design of a brand new weapon there. A weapon without external locks, which weighed less than 800g when fully loaded. Hubner and Silvestri preferred the resistance of the trigger with 1.5kg. Colonel Dechant said he should have between 2.5 and 5kg. They specified that the weapon should be between 30 and 50mm wide, a trigger 10mm long, should not have more than 40 pieces in total and could be easily...
