What is the most popular Glock model?


January 6, 2008, 12:34 PM
OK, I know this is a vague question to ask but a friend asked me that the other day and I couldn't even begin to tell him or give any advice. I've never been a Glock person, I just never found one that fit well in my hand so I've never kept up with them.

He was wondering what model seems to be the biggest seller, Model, caliber, etc.

I'm hoping some of you out there could give me a little insight on the matter, barring personal preferences, actual true popularity and issued weapons numbers are what he was interested in.

I would say the 17 in 9mm.

With all the governmental contracts, has to be the 17, right?

I would GUESS the G17. It was first, longest production run. Police / miltary contracts, and if you own Glocks it seems like you either own one, owned one, or plan to acquire one.

Issued weapons and overall popularity, agree the G17. Current popularity I'd say G19 also in 9mm.

In the United States I see more Glock 22s then just about any other but that is likely due to it being a very popular with LEOs.

Worldwide I would guess the original Glock 17 probably takes that honor.

My analysis and a buck will get you well not much these days.

Non-Leo's = G17/19
Leo's = G22

January 6, 2008, 02:30 PM
We have a hard time keeping any in stock. But the most popular would be either the 23 or 19.

January 6, 2008, 02:48 PM
I agree on the 23/19

January 6, 2008, 03:43 PM
millitary contracts - 17
domestic LE agencies - 22
domestic sales - 19/23

January 6, 2008, 05:43 PM
19/23 like as said above.

January 6, 2008, 05:51 PM
I'd have to go with the G17 for most popular.

January 6, 2008, 08:08 PM
19 and 17

January 6, 2008, 08:13 PM
17 19 and 22.

January 6, 2008, 08:19 PM
On the glock talk forum, there was a "Most Popular Glock" pole about a year ago or so.. The G19 easily won...

January 6, 2008, 08:41 PM
If you look at it by the number of Glocks in service, I'm sure the G17 would be the winner. Take out government/LE, most likely winner would be G19, my personal favorite.

January 6, 2008, 09:16 PM
17, 19, or 22.

January 7, 2008, 02:05 AM
I would think either the 17 or 19 would be #1

January 7, 2008, 02:29 AM
domestic LE agencies - 22
domestic sales - 19/23

+ 1

January 7, 2008, 03:37 AM
I see more 23's than anything else by far. After that is 19's and 17's.

January 7, 2008, 04:06 AM
17 I would guess

January 7, 2008, 04:27 AM
The G19

January 7, 2008, 04:34 AM
As said by others:
Domestic: G19 followed by G23.
LE: G22
International sales: G17

January 7, 2008, 05:21 AM

January 7, 2008, 06:07 AM
I would venture to say the 19 as well.

January 7, 2008, 12:03 PM
It varies on who you ask. LE sales would suggest the 22/23. Civilians within the US would suggest 9mm models.

As far as internationally, it would be 9mm guns in my opinion.

Have you called Glock to ask them?

January 7, 2008, 12:37 PM
I would have to say the G19

January 7, 2008, 12:40 PM
I would have to vote for the Glock 19

January 7, 2008, 01:37 PM
19 is the one I always see at the range

January 7, 2008, 09:45 PM
Total civilian sales G17
Total L. E. sales G17
U. S. L. E. sales G22
U.S. civ. sales G19

January 8, 2008, 03:00 AM

That would be my preference too.

January 9, 2008, 07:24 PM
19, 23 then 26

January 9, 2008, 11:53 PM
First guess: G17
Second choice: the infamous Glock 7

The ammo is even more expensive for that Glock 7 than the firearm itself.

January 10, 2008, 07:57 PM
In The USA: G19 9 mm Compact

World Wide: G17 9 mm Duty Sized
