Finally! The long-awaited Glock Deconstructed, by one of our favorite authors, Patrick Sweeney, is finally, finally here—and we couldn’t be more excited.
You think you know all about Glocks, have a couple, use them regularly, love ’em or hate ’em? Well, let me tell you, no one knows Glock like Sweeney knows Glock. Telling it as no one but Pat can, in his own inimitable style, this is the Glock you think you know but don’t. Far from being a “pretty-boy” rehash of the models and where they are now, Pat instead does a masterful job of telling how Glock came to be the power-house firearms manufacturer it is, covering everything from the intricacies of magazine design and the dizzying array of serial numbering, to the things that could have been—shoulder stocks, suppressors, and full-autos—and the things that might be, could be, should be coming to your gun shop’s display shelves. There’s also an in-depth look at Glock’s competition, both pluses and minuses, where things went wrong for Glock (and right).
This complex look at a rather simple gun is revealing. Whether you own five different Glocks and are looking for your sixth, or loathe them and wonder what all the fuss is about and if there’s enough to all the hoopla to change your mind, this book is sure to answer those questions and more. Best of all, it’s entertaining. Don’t walk, run to get this one!
