So, what are Glock’s most popular firearms? Here are six.

Glock 26 and 27
Among concealed carry enthusiasts, this handgun tandem is extremely popular, according to  ConcealedNation.org. The guns are identical except for their calibers. Concealed Nation rates them highly for being both reliable and concealable. They each have a standard magazine capacity of 10 rounds.

Glock 33
This pistol is small and concealable but packs a punch, which makes it popular with the public, according to WideOpenSpaces.com. Its .357 Sig cartridge was initially designed in an auto-loading pistol format for .357 Magnum revolver cartridge ballistics. Being chambered in this caliber enables the Glock 33 to fire rounds at remarkable velocities for a handgun of its size.

Glock 42
This semi-automatic pistol’s slim, subcompact size is ideal for concealed carry, according to Bass Pro Shops. It uses the same locked-breech barrel as larger-framed Glock pistols, and it features a Safe-Action trigger system for firing in tense situations. The Glock 42 offers six-round magazines and the same size, length, finger rest and shape as bigger pistols, yet is lighter and easier to carry.

Glock 18
This 9mm machine pistol is a semi-automatic to full automatic pistol machine gun. Accessible solely to the police and military, this model offers a select fire capability for either full automatic shooting or semi-automatic fire, according to WideOpenSpaces.org.

Glock 19
This pistol offers a rare combination to shooters, according to a Bloomberg report. The Glock 19 has supplanted small .38 revolvers in popularity because, while it is similar in weight and size, the pistol provides considerably more firepower along with the ability to shoot more quickly and accurately. The model is issued with a standard 15-round clip but can handle magazines of up to 33 rounds, according to Bloomberg.
