Glock 22 / 23 [Automatic Pistol]:
Outwardly exactly the same as the Glock 17, this version fires the slightly more powerful .40 S&W cartridge at the cost of a losss of two rounds in magazine capacity. Earlier versions experienced some problems with the magazines, which had a tendency to be slightly unreliable, but in the last years these problems have been resolved. The Glock 23 is little more than a compact version of the 22, with a somewhat shorter barrel, and lesser magazine capacity.
Have been adapted by several police forces as their standard sidearm. The gun has a fairly high magazine capacity, which can be upped by two more rounds by adding a special floorplate to the magazine. This item is made by Glock itself, and can be purchased by lawenforcement agents and the like.
