    Simple question...

    Why are Glocks so darn reliable? What technically makes them so reliable?
    Yes it is a great design, but what main part of it is what makes it what it is?

    Just wondering...

    The modified Browning system, tilting barrel, simple design, excellent quality mags, chisel shaped firing pin, are all pluses when talking about a reliable firearm.

    Glock took very simple designs and materials and put them together. No real magic part it's just simple and simple works, but more often than not it just ain't pretty

    Perfect example of K.I.S.S

    Die Wahrheit is.....John Browning Erfand die besten guns (als Ganzes) als den anderen. Es kann man sagen, dass die besten Pistolen oder gewehre kommen aus den Vereinigten Staaten.

    I still love the Glock!

    I just woke up the wife laughing.......I looked at her and asked "Warum sind sie so spät?" And that's when the fight started.

    John Browning's designs were amazing and often copied but I do love my Glocks.

    At least three of us were stationed in Deutschland........or just found a translation site on the interweb.

    Maybe a combo?
