GLOCK, Inc.SMYRNA, GA.-( GLOCK, Inc., manufacturer of the world’s most popular pistol, announces a special production run of pistols for the summer. Each GLOCK pistol included in the special production run was designed and engineered to respond directly to the needs of our customers.

“GLOCK strives to provide perfection in all of our products and these special production pistols provide additional enhancements.

The G17 Gen4 and G19 Gen4 with front serrations are suitable for people with varying levels of shooting experience.

Also among the pistols produced for the summer are the G17C Gen4 and the G19C Gen4, which offer compensated slides, the G24 Gen3 and the G17L Gen3, and various Olive Drab “OD” models including the G17, G19, G26 and G34 in Gen3 and Gen4 along with the G43.

In addition to the summer specials, GLOCK, Inc. will also begin production of pistols with factory-installed night sights.
