    Glock with Internal Lock

    I saw a Glock subcompact with an Internal Lock that prevented the gun from being fired. I would not purchase the gun for this reason but is there any reason not to purchase it??

    Does the lock take away anything form the gun? Does it make the gun any heavier?

    Like I said, I wouldnt look for one with a lock, but being that it has it - any reason not to get it???

    Would you have an internal lock on a SIG? A Kel Tec? A Ruger? A S&W? Hope this answers your question.

    Um, from what I can tell, people believe (with or without proof, i don't know) that after a while, it may fail and lock itself w/o you using a key. I think that's the theory anyhow. If i had to choose between w/ or w/o, i'd probably go with one that didn't have a lock. Just one more thing to fail, and I know i'd never use the lock.

    Those dimpled keys are very difficult to have made. We had them at an office once.

    If there is not an overwhelming love for this feature for me it would be a big no. Sort of like a 45 gap.

    p.s is this a real model or just a funny post?

    Is that that thing on the back of the grip area? I saw that in a manual. Looked odd.

    Yes, they do make them. I doubt they sell a lot of them though. Unless they sell them in foreign countries that require something like this.

    Cmon guys you're not answering my question.

    We all agree that we wouldn't seek out a glock with this internal lock, however, if you happened to come across a Glock @ a good price that happened to have the lock, - Would you specifically Not buy it and why?

    It would make no difference to me - if it was a good price, yes I'd buy it. No reason not too.

    Why? It is assumed to be at a good price point. I would not pay extra, nor would I demand a discount. It's a Glock. It has no effect on function whatsoever.

    Agreed, no difference--it's not going to lock itself.

    I wouldn't get it because it would be one more thing that could fail on your gun. You buy Glocks because they're simple. Otherwise, you'd get a gun that had a grip safety, thumb safety, and why not throw in an internal lock?

    Most Glocks come with a cable lock - so if you really need to disable it you can use that. I think this internal lock thing is to cut down on the clutter of that for departmental use. For everyday personal use, get a gun safe.

    A lock on a Glock is a 'crock'...

    I would buy one. It would be just like having a trigger lock. It would really suck if you lost the key though! I am assuming each key would have a number that you could call and get a replacement from glock.

    I just don't seee how it would it would be a disadvantage in any way. some have said it could fail, but it's a manual lock with key, it cant lock by itself.

    Also, I might be useful in situations that you want to leave it in a car if you have to go into a prohibited builfing, etc.

    There only issue I can think that would be a concern was if it added any significant weight, which I don't see how it could.
