Our Safe Action® System. Always safe and always ready.
GLOCK’s revolutionary SAFE ACTION® System provides a consistent trigger pull from the first to the last round. The three automatic independently-operating mechanical safeties are built into the fire control system of the pistol.
This safe, simple, and fast system allows the user to concentrate fully on shooting without having any additional actions to disengage and reengage safeties. This means it is safe if it’s dropped, and additionally it functions at temperatures from -40° to 122° Fahrenheit.
How Does it Work?
The SAFE ACTION® System is a fully automatic safety system consisting of three passive, independently operating, mechanical safeties. All three safeties disengage sequentially as the trigger is pulled and automatically re-engage when the trigger is released.
Firing Sequence / Trigger Reset
A special feature of the SAFE ACTION® System allows the trigger to reset with only limited forward movement of the trigger, so you don't have to completely release the trigger in order to fire a second controlled shot or when you need to fire several rounds quickly. After a round is fired, you only have to release the trigger until it resets, which you can hear and feel.
All three pistol safeties automatically re-engage when you release the trigger to its forward position.
