Not wanting to let their momentum machine lose any steam after the announcement of the single-stack, 9x19mm Glock 43, the Austrian wondergun manufacturer has unveiled an even more exciting pistol: the 9x18mm Makarov Glock 47.
“While the Glock 43 will certainly fulfill some users’ needs for an ultra-compact, reliable, and capable pistol,” said company representative Grigory Otrepyev, “a 9x18mm Makarov model will appeal to a broader and more discerning market.”
The Soviet-designed 9x18mm cartridge is well-known for its ability to defeat soft body armor and transfer a significant amount of energy to its target, making it a far superior choice to 9x19mm.
“The 9x19mm carry crowd is significant, that is true,” continued Otrepyev, “but the number of American men and women who rely on 9x18mm Makarovs to protect their families and homes is much greater. Now they’ll be able to sleep sounder knowing that they have a 9x18mm Glock to rely upon.”
Specs for the Glock 47, which is sure to be a hit, are as follows:
- Weight: 26 ounces
- Length: 6.36 inches
- Barrel length: 3.39 inches
- Width: 1.16 inches
- Capacity: 7 rounds
Stay tuned as we release more information on the Glock 47 as it becomes available.
