The Glock is a series of polymer - framed , short recoil -operated, locked-breech semi-automatic pistols designed and produced by Austrian manufacturer Glock Ges. The firearm entered Austrian military and police service by after it was the top performer in reliability and safety tests. Despite initial resistance from the market to accept a perceived "plastic gun" due to concerns regarding durability and reliability which proved unfounded, as well as fears that its use of a polymer frame might bypass the detection of the metal detectors in airports, also unfounded, Glock pistols have become the company's most profitable line of products as well as supplying national armed forces, security agencies, and police forces in at least 48 countries. The company's founder, head engineer Gaston Glock , had no experience with firearms design or manufacture at the time their first pistol, the Glock 17, was being prototyped. Glock had extensive experience in advanced synthetic polymers , which was instrumental in the company's design of the first commercially successful line of pistols with a polymer frame. Glock became aware of the Austrian Army 's planned procurement, and in assembled a team of Europe's leading handgun experts from military, police, and civilian sport-shooting circles to define the most desirable characteristics in a combat pistol.
