The Glock family of handguns is semi-automatic pistol that is in sporadic use within a number of US Special Operations units such as Delta Force, Army Rangers and Marine Force Recon.
Glocks are designed and made by Austrian company Glock GmbH. The pistols are manufactured with a polymer frame
Glocks come in a variety of sizes and calibers. One of the most common types is the Glock 17 which is a full size 9mm pistol that has a capacity of 17+1 rounds. Army Rangers reportedly use the Glock 19 which is a more compact version of the Glock 17 and is also chambered in 9mm.
Delta Force have reportedly been known to use the Glock 22, a full-size pistol chambered in .40 S&W. Delta have a history of preferring .45s such as the venerable 1911, however it's rumored that some operators switched to Glock 22s as they were deemed more reliable in the sandy conditions the unit tends to operate in these days. The Glock 22 has a magazine capacity of 15+1.
Delta is also understood to sometimes use smaller Glocks such as the the compact Glock 19 (9mm) or even smaller 26 (9mm) which are ideal for concealed carry.
