It wasn’t long after GLOCK’s acceptance by American shooters that the need for a smaller model geared towards concealed carriers was identified. To produce a handgun that was the right size to appeal to shooters that plan on hiding it in plain sight, GLOCK redesigned the popular GLOCK 23 into a new pistol they called the GLOCK 27. With a redesigned locking block, reworked frame and an all new dual recoil spring, the GLOCK 27, also known as the “baby GLOCK” was a fresh take on the now proven design. Shooters all over the world turn to the GLOCK 27 for its robust, reliable design that continues to perform in even the most demanding of environments. With a 9 round capacity magazine, the GLOCK 27 is a perfect choice for a police officer’s looking for a backup gun to their GLOCK 22 or 23, as well as off duty or plain clothes work and concealed carriers.
