The GLOCK P80 revolutionized the gun industry and established the iconic GLOCK brand. Gaston Glock designed his first handgun for the Austrian military pistol trials in 1981. After winning this prized competition, the Austrian military named it the Pistole 80 and the first GLOCK pistols produced were subsequently marked P80. In 1986 this same pistol, commercially known as the G17, was introduced to the US market. You now have the opportunity to have your own piece of GLOCK history with the Lipsey’s Exclusive GLOCK P80 Edition.
