The Glock 17, designed in the 1980s, is the first pistol made by Glock Ges.m.b.H and is named after the 17th patent procured by the company. Made with synthetic materials and modern manufacturing technologies, the Glock 17 became a cost effective option compared to other pistols. In 2017, the company presented the “Gen 5” with revisions centered on ergonomics and improving reliability. Changes included an ambidextrous slide stop levers, a revised style of polygonal rifling, and a flared magazine well.
