Why can’t I buy a Gen4 pistol in California?

Where can I find GLOCK safety brochures?

Where can I buy a G25, G28, or G18 pistol?
Currently, GLOCK does not sell these pistol models to the public.
Can I dry fire my GLOCK pistol?
It’s ok to dry fire your GLOCK pistol, but we recommend using a snap cap or dummy round if you will be dry firing for a long period of time.
What kind of ammunition should I use in my GLOCK pistol? Can I use +P and +P+ ammunition?
We recommend using ammunition that is manufactured and meets SAAMI or other industry standards, and while some +P ammunition meets these guidelines, +P+ usually does not. This ammunition may generate a higher pressure than standard ammunition, which could shorten the life of the parts of your firearm.
Can I use lead bullets?
No, we recommend the use of jacketed ammunition only.
Can I find out my GLOCK pistol’s born on date?
Yes, you can find out the manufacture date of your GLOCK pistol by contacting GLOCK, Inc.

Can I purchase a frame or slide from GLOCK, Inc?

Can I convert my .40 Cal. pistol to .357 Sig or .357 Sig to .40 Cal.?
Yes, in most cases you can convert your GLOCK pistol to another caliber by changing the barrel. However, early GLOCK models may not be able to be converted.
When I disassemble my pistol, I notice that the recoil spring is no longer seated on the assembly notch of the barrel. Is this normal?
Yes, the assembly notch is for assembly only. The recoil spring assembly drops down into the frame recess and stays there until it is disassembled, when the slide and barrel come forward, picking it up out of the lower position.
