The GLOCK 17C Gen4 is equipped with integral barrel ports which optimize performance during rapid firing, allowing the shooter to get back on target quicker. Additional benefits are reduced muzzle flip and felt recoil. The GLOCK 17C Gen4 also features the Modular Back Strap system, which allows shooters to customize the pistol's grip to accommodate any hand size, Gen4 rough textured technology on the frame, and a dual recoil spring assembly.
