The Glock was designed in the 1980's as a replacement for the Walther P38. Despite the company's founder having no previous experience with firearm design or production, the Glock outperformed more established manufacturer's (such as Heckler & Koch) to become the handgun of choice for the Austrian military. Glocks are also popular with military and law enforcement agencies around the world.
This weapon was tested against the Navy SEAL's Sig Sauer P226 in breaking five lights and eliminating two targets inside a mock-up bistro. The SEALS completed the challenge in 13.84s while the Commandos completed the challenge in 20.03s due to missing with a few shots against the lights. The edge was given to the SIG P226 for the better shooting of the SEALS.
