Do you know how a Glock works?
I’m sure there are one or two smart alecks out there saying, “Yeah, dummy, you pull the trigger and it goes bang!”
Sure, in a rudimentary sense, yeah, that’s how it works. You pull the trigger and it goes bang. But from a mechanical and engineering perspective, there is a lot that happens during the firing cycle of a Glock (including the disengagement of three safeties!).
In the video above, our friends at Lone Wolf break it down in the course of about seven minutes. The cool thing is that it’s highly informative. Do you know what the “cruciform” does? What about the “kickup”?
The bad thing is that the computer voiceover is a little stilted and off-putting.
Overall, though, solid video. I watched it twice to really get a sense of what happens when I pull that trigger.
As with all tools, the more you understand them, the more you appreciate them.
