Default Reasons you NEED a GLOCK

Granted none of us will likely have to go thru this kind of torture (God willing) but it shows the toughness of a Glock. Here you go guys. Now pick it apart. LoL

Czech Police testing of CZ P0-1

4000 dry firings
3000 De-cockings
Operator level disassembly 1350 times with out ware or damage to components.
Complete disassembly 150 times, this is all the way down, pins, springs etc.
100% interchangability, any number of pistols randomly selected, disassembled, parts mixed and reassembled with no failures of any kind including loss of accuracy.

Safety requirements:

Drop test
1.5 meter (4.9”) drop test, this is done 54 times with the pistol loaded (blank) and the hammer cocked. Dropping the pistol on the butt, the muzzle, back of the slide, sides of the gun, top of the slide, in essence, any angle that you could drop the gun from. This is done on concrete and 0 failures are allowed! A failure is the gun firing.

3meter drop (9.8”) 5 times with the pistol loaded (blank) and the hammer cocked, This is done on concrete and 0 failures are allowed! A failure is the gun firing.

After these tests are complete the gun must fire without service.

The factory contracted an independent lab to do additional testing on guns that previously passed the drop tests. These pistol were dropped an additional 352 times without failure.

The pistol must also complete an environmental conditions test:
This means cold, heat, dust/sand and mud.
The pistol must fire after being frozen for 24 hours at –35C (-36F).
The pistol must fire after being heated for 24 hours at 70C (126F)
The pistol must fire after being submerged in mud, sand and combinations including being stripped of oil then completing the sand and mud tests again.

Service life:
The service life requirement from the Czech police was 15,000 rounds of +P ammo!
The pistol will exceed 30,000 rounds with ball 9mm.

Reliability:
The reliability requirements for the P-01 pistol are 99.8%, that’s a .2% failure rate.
This equals 20 stoppages in 10,000 rounds or 500 “Mean Rounds Between Failure” (MRBF)
During testing, the average number of stoppages was only 7 per 15,000 rounds fired, this is a .05% failure rate, a MRBF rate of 2142 rounds! Over 4 time the minimum acceptable requirement.

Again Glocks are very nice but they aren't the only reliable well made guns on the market.

Imo, no one makes things better than the Austrians. Doesn't matter what it is. Glock, KTM motorcycles, and my Silhouette glasses. Now if I could only get an Austrian made truck and boat motor.

If you want a CZ design in a fine quality gun, get a Sphinx!

Or, if you just want a plain Jane CZ, get one of the Dan Wesson series.

How does it look? I've only picked up a ccw holster haven't had time to trick it out. When I went to pick it up the shotgun I've been eyeing went on sale so I had to buy that one too

Trijicon is all I use. These are my first HD's and like so far. Just got them on. Metro Armory from Illinois. Two day turnaround and I'm in NC. $27

Reasons to buy a GLOCK. Well because its a Glock that's enough reason. I use a Glock 22 for my on duty weapon and us a Glock 23 as a off duty weapon. Glock is fool proof.

You do realize this was NATO testing and the CZ is NATO approved

The GLOCK has PASSED THIS SAME TEST and is also NATO APPROVED

Also the factory has tested Glocks well past 100K rounds with no cleaning and being abused along the way. They have been doing this for years..

I like this guy, the crazy Russian. Doesn't practice the same safety protocols as I do, but he is funny!
