The Glock 23 pistol is the smaller "concealed carry" version of the .40 caliber Glock 22, making it a favorite among civilians and off duty officers alike. The compact size of this semi-automatic pistol makes it perfectly tailored for those who desire to carry unnoticed. This pistol is also a favorite "back up" weapon of different federal and law enforcement agencies around the world. This compact Glock 23 has garnered a following from those working undercover and desiring a high capacity pistol with maximum power potential. Just as the Glock 22 is perfect for the personnel who are in uniform, the Glock 23 is considered perfect for those out of uniform.
The Glock 23 share a lot of characteristic and features of the original model 22. This pistol utilizes Glocks “safe action” striker firing system accompanied by the 3 internal safety mechanisms. The Glock 23 is categorized as a “compact” version, with a 4.02 inches barrel. The overall length of the slide is 6.85 inches, and the gun is 5 inches in height. It weighs about 23.65 oz. when it is unloaded, and 31.06 oz. when it is fully loaded. What makes this pistol distinct among hand gun enthusiasts, is its reliability. Every Glock is designed to be resistant to virtually any weather condition, even if it is being used intensely. Every model of Glock is tested under every different combat scenario, and their pistols all seem to still perform flawlessly.
You can consider this pistol as one of the best firearms that you will ever have the privilege to own or operate. This attractive little compact will never let you down in protecting your family, property or country. With its groundbreaking reliability and accuracy, you will love this gun even more as times goes by. A good pistol is almost like a personal expression of freedom, and everyone needs to embrace the freedoms that we still enjoy. I am a fan of centerfire sidearms, and I can say that Glock 23 is one of the best sidearm weapons ever made by Glock, or ever carried by mankind.
