FIRST LOOK: Glock Just Very Quietly Unveiled the New Glock 47 Pistol

Recommended Posts

Tuesday afternoon we broke news that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection selected three Glock 9mm pistols as its new standard duty pistol, replacing the .40 S&W HK P2000. Amongst the three Glocks selected were the Glock 19, Glock 26 and mysterious Glock 47. Yes, you’re reading that correctly: the G47.

We double-checked to make sure we hadn’t missed a Glock release in recent months. We didn’t. Turns out Glock developed the G47 specifically for the CBP contract.

What We Know About the Glock 47

The most important detail about the new G47 is this: You can’t have one. Sorry to play spoiler, but when we said Glock created the pistol for the CBP, we meant it. It’s not available to consumers. It even has “DHS CBP” engraved on the side of the slide.

“Well that sucks,” you probably just said. It does. But we still scored some details on the G47, as we’re sure your interest is piqued at what the CBP wanted.

The Glock 47 incorporates a full-size slide with a G45 frame. Tactical Life confirmed that the G47 has the same barrel length of a Glock 17. However, a G17 slide will not fit on the G47. The new pistol is also compatible with G19X, G17, G34 and G45 magazines.

Like the G19 and G26 pistols adopted by the CBP, the G47 features a flared magwell for faster magazine changes and the match-grade Glock Marksman Barrel (GMB) for enhanced accuracy. It will also be outfitted with Ameriglo BOLD sights.

And that’s all that’s fit to print. Will Glock ever release the G47 to the public? There’s the distinct possibility. However, for the time being, you’ll only see it with CBP law enforcement personnel. For more information, please visit US.Glock.com.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
