GLOCK 20 / 20C
GLOCK parts diagram
(MANUAL) Glock Manual (.pdf)
The GLOCK 20 is a large frame GLOCK. The G20 operates and holds the same components as a Glock 17 but all parts have been adapted to the 10mm Norma ammunition. Because of the fact that full power 10mm Norma ammunition is powerful, this pistol is rarely used for sports or law enforcement. Thus the GLOCK 20 is mainly being used as a self defense pistol to fend of large dangerous animals, like bears, mountain lions or similar dangerous animals. It has a 15 rounds magazine capacity.
The large frame is great for those with bigger hands.
The GLOCK 20 has undergone 3 major revisions since its introduction and current models are called 3rd generation GLOCK 20s.
The difference between the GLOCK 20 and the GLOCK 20C is that the barrel and slide are ported on the C model to reduce muzzle climb while shooting the pistol.
