Police and military turn to the Glock 23 pistol, chambered in .40 Smith and Wesson, for its robust, reliable design that continues to perform in the most taxing of situations. Thanks to the 13 round magazine capacity, the GLOCK 23 has more than enough big bore firepower to be used as a standard sidearm while retaining a compact and concealable form factor for plain clothes officers.
The handgun is very user-friendly; for example GLOCK has introduced a reversible magazine catch on the Gen4 pistols, to make it right- or left-hand accessible. In addition, the GLOCK 23 Smith and Wesson features a modular backstrap system that allows a shooter to tailor the rough textured grip of the pistol to their hand size for optimal ergonomics. To tame the .40 S&W cartridge and give the user more control, GLOCK implemented a dual spring system to help absorb recoil.
Civilian shooters embrace the GLOCK 23 for many of the same reasons as militaries all over the world. The customizability of the pistol makes it the perfect handgun in competition circles as well as in the hands of concealed carriers and homeowners looking for a cost effective firearm to defend their families.
