A modified Glock 19, the Glock 23 is enabled to fire the .40 S&W ammunition. G23 uses a modified frame, slide, magazine and .40 S&W barrel, but is otherwise practically identical in appearance and appeal to the Glock 19.

The two pistols are exactly identical in their physical external dimensions aside from the weight of the pistols (the Glock 19 is slightly lighter than the Glock 23). The standard magazine capacity of the Glock 23 is 13 rounds (Despite that, the standard 15 round Glock 22 magazines can be used). Both G23 and G19 use the same 18 lb. recoil spring, making 20 lb. and 22 lb. springs a very popular after-market accessory for the weapon. The numerous similiarites between the two exceptional designs includes that the Glock 23 can easily and effectively be converted to a Glock 19 by replacing the barrel with a "conversion" barrel, and using Glock 19 standard magazines.

The Glock 23 has been through three major revisions since its primary introduction in 1990 along with the slightly larger Glock 22. Present market models are called 3rd generation Glock 23s.

Excellent Pistol

One of the greatest pistols ever made IMHO.

just purchased the glock 23 today online and will receive it sometime next week. i already have my former carry weapon spoken for and will be using that $ for a tac light/laser combo for it. i can't wait to take her out on her maiden voyage and feed a couple of boxes of ammo through her. it's going to be difficult for me not to baby her but hey, she's my new baby girl and all new loves are that way at first!

almost perfect

The G23 is my choice as a duty weapon.Just as accurate as a G22 in a real life situation,but smaller and a little lighter.The only way to make this sidearm any better would be for it to aim and shoot byitself.5 out of 5.

G23

Bought mine in 1990(on letterhead) and "still have it". Rebuilt it numerous times, it still shoots as well as it did originally, I don't though.

GLOCK 23

I bought my G-23 about six months after getting my first Glock, a model 36. I still carry my G-36 daily, but I sure do love my G-23 as well. This gun is a gun for real self-defense. Pull the trigger and it goes bang. The balance, ease of sight, and smooth function of the gun makes it a wonderful tool of defense.
