Glocks Made in USA

Didn't even know these existed!!! Anyone know WHY they exist? From internet rumor mill, it has something to do with the tenifer coating.

Its probally that Austria does not have a trade agreement with the country and the US does so they get tagged USA

Actually, the guns are Made in USA. Or at least, assembled here. The whole Made/Assembled in USA is a grey area. Harley-Davidson motorcylces have to have a certain percentage of their parts made here in order to claim Made in USA.

LOL...reading my mind! Just to "be different" and be able to say "I have a Glock Made in USA". That would be pretty cool. Imagine the arguments and bets you could win with a US-made Glock!!

There's always the economics. The U.S. is probably the largest gun market with a steady demand year in, year out. Also, 'Made in USA' vs importing eliminates a number of ATF gun importation rules and regulations. And politically, the U.S. is very gun-friendly. Finally, the U.S. dollar is pretty weak (but stable), so it's more economical (ie: more profitable via foreign exchange rates) to make guns here and import them to Europe and the rest of the world.

Heh...insteresting question. Have to find a Glock Forum in the Phillipines to find out. That is one of the locations where US-made Glocks are being sold.

Looks like USA version has non-dip extractor, or was that added later?

X2!!!! Count me in for one!!!

If the USA-made ones become more readily available, I wonder if there will be a premium on them? Beretta is in that situation with their 92. More pople want US-made ones than Italian ones. Of course, the US-made Berettas also seem to be of higher quality.

Thought we decided last month that a byproduct of the tennifer treatment (arsenic) made it prohibitive to make the guns here for the US market. All go through the Tennifer treatment in Austria.

Or was that just a dream?

May have been a dream.
It's not arsenic, it's cyanide that is the offending item. Interestingly, S&W uses Melonite, which is the same as tenifer, on their guns. Must be a different process that doesn't involve cyanide.

Here's some good info on tenifer...

I'd happily own one. Might have to pick up one, if I can find one, to keep the imports under control. :D
