Built Glock Tough

Glock, a company known for closely guarding its operations in secrecy, for the first time opened its Smyrna, Ga., facility to select media for a factory tour. It was a whirlwind experience providing a rare view of Glock and Gun Digest was there. Glock Photos

Sounds like a once in a lifetime opportunity to view the manufacturing process. I am a bit envious.

“In the operational side of the house, there are two major reasons why Glock is so successful,” Dorsey said. “One is the simplistic design with 34 parts. That’s versus the 200-some parts in a 1911. The more parts you have the more parts can go wrong.

I wondered about that too. I have no idea how many parts are in my 1911 but it is definitely more complex than my Glock.
