    I don't know what you mean by safety lock. If you're talking about the lock that looks like a cable with a padlock on the end- they all have them. All guns have to come with a lock.

    If you're talking about a safety, Glocks don't come with them. There are after
    market devices you can install. But Glock only comes with the three passive safety devices that are a part of the pistol design. You pick it up and pull the trigger, it will go bang.

    I think you're talking about a grip safety. If so, Glocks don't have that. They are standard on 1911s and Springfield XDs. They may be on other guns, but I'm not aware of them.

    I assume you're talking about the bump on the back of this grip?

    The safety is the 'double' trigger. The holster (should) cover the trigger. As long as the index finger is kept outside of the trigger guard, there is little danger of an AD.
    At first I did not like the idea of not having an independent safety, but now it is one less thing to worry about in a stressful situation.

    I believe the OP is referring to a lock meant to secure the firearm, in the empty space behind the mag in the grip, like what new Taurus pistols have, among some others. It's listed as an option in the back of the Glock product brochure, but no, it they don't all come with them. In fact, I've never even seen a glock with one. I believe they may be aftermarket options.

    Btw, I love my G19, buy with confidence and enjoy whatever Glock you settle on!
    .40 is fine.

    Safety Lock
    Lock your GLOCK pistol with the only safety cylinder lock for pistols worldwide. The GLOCK safety lock when engaged prevents firing and disassembling of the GLOCK pistol.


    that is off the glock website. I am still trying to decide what one i want. but im thinking about the G19, G26, G23, G27, this will be my primary CW. But i am in the Army which means move a lot so i would like to lock the weapon so no one and " play " with it when it is going through the airlines check points.

    Oh, no.......

    Now I have to hurry up and buy every Glock model that I want, before they make this silly lock mandatory.

    NO locks on any of my guns. Period.

    Johnnyrigger, you are required to put your handgun in a locked case in checked luggage, unloaded and separate from ammo anyway. The only people who may fiddle with it are the TSA agents when they check bags before they go in the cargo hold.

    IMHO, the Glock's beauty is in its simplicity. No need to booger that up with an unnecessary lock. The lock on a Glock will never fail if it's not there to begin with.

    Thats been around for a while. It is for other markets, not the US. Maybe it is available as an add-on, but it isn't standard.

    Some European Countries insist that such a lock is built into the firearm, Greece was the one that started the concept. You can order the lock with any new GLOCK or you can order it as an aftermarket add on.
    I have only ever seen it an one GLOCK and persoally speaking it's not for me.

    Some states in the US are or will be adopting those locks. If your state is anal about stuff like this it is likely you will see them next year. I also heard they will be more standared on the 4th gen's (whenever those come out) to the states that want them on the Glocks.

    This can still be gotten around by buying online from states that don't or will not require them I think. I would bet that the NY, MD, WI, IL, CA, commie states will be the adopting states for sure.

    Don't lock the Glock...if you must, put the loaded Glock in a locked safe...

    It's my understanding that certain states require them, but otherwise they are available to dealers by request. I could be wrong, so take that for what it's worth. Either way, I wouldn't want one. More parts equals greater chance of mistakes/failures. Go with the normal version if it's available to you. Just my opinion.
