Glock has appeared to be losing market share so this press release from the company is interesting …
“Glock, Inc. is extremely pleased with the increase in both sales and market share for 2010 and have broken all previous sales records. These sales were strengthened by our newest generation in pistols, the Glock 22 Gen4 and the Glock 17 Gen4,” explained Vice President Gary Fletcher. “The Gen4 technology has enhanced our product line with several new design features and we await the release of the Glock 23 Gen4 and Glock 19 Gen4 this summer.
Additionally, Glock is expanding its operations here in the United States with manufacturing and exporting of our product made in the U.S. Our current orders are very strong and we expect to maintain this momentum throughout fiscal year 2011.”
Glock, Inc. stays committed to producing the most reliable and durable products for more than 65% of Local, State and Federal Law Enforcement agencies in the United States. Being first to implement the new Gen4 platform has been an easy decision for a few agencies. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in Tampa, Florida, the Charleston Police Department in Charleston, West Virginia, the Kenosha Police Department in Kenosha, Wisconsin and the Madison County Sheriff’s Office in Edwardsville, Illinois have enthusiastically adopted the new Gen4 pistol.
