Advanced manufacturing



GLOCK advanced manufacturing

By revolutionizing firearms production in the early 1980´s, GLOCK became the worldwide leading pistol manufacturer and brought its manufacturing process to perfection. 
Every GLOCK pistol carries 100% GLOCK quality!

Raw material

Full control of raw material

GLOCK has established stringent quality control procedures for internal and external resources. An example of this is the high quality weapon steel being analyzed by the in-house metallurgical department. Only raw materials which comply with the specifications defined by GLOCK are accepted into the production progress.

High level of vertical production

Manufacturing activities range from tool making to molding and machining 100% of the components of the final product. Created on the desks of the research and development team, each GLOCK product is immediately linked to the tool making department by CAD construction drawings in order to build the necessary tools for the production process. This process includes hammer forging, CNC milling and turning, stamping of strip steel, winding of springs as well as polymer and metal injection molding.
Quality control

Quality Control - Certified production procedures - ISO 9001 / ISO 14001

GLOCK pistols have been designed to operate without compromise in extreme conditions by police and military. Thanks to industry leading quality assurance procedures, which are continuously integrated in the production process, tolerances are strictly limited and reliable operational safety is achieved. To bring our quality assurance to perfection and lower our environmental impact along our entire product life cycle, GLOCK is certified according to ISO 9001 (quality management) and ISO 14001 (environmental management) requirements.
Torture testing

Torture testing

Arctic temperatures or merciless heat, salt water, mud or sand, professionals throughout the world engage in the most hostile environmental conditions and the same is required of their GLOCK pistols.

Extensive tests are done in-house during the product design process as well as externally during purchasing procedures. GLOCK pistols prove that they are reliable under tough and adverse conditions. The GLOCK pistol is the weapon of choice for many officers knowing that their sidearm is one of the most robust and reliable pistols in the world.
Test firing

Test firing

Every single GLOCK pistol is test fired to ensure CIP conformity as well as flawless function and accuracy out of the box. An electronic target test device was specifically developed for precision testing to align the hit pattern with the line of sight.

Every GLOCK customer can ensure they will be receiving a weapon that has been tested in the factory and operates reliably out of the box without compromises or expensive modifications.
