I must say I am not a Glock fan. I'm not going to get into that here, though.

I get lost in the sauce when someone just talks about his Glock by its number (EX: G19, G35, etc). I don't know what all the numbers are. I always have to go to glock.com to figure it out. That takes forever. So I wanted to just make a thread, mostly for my own reference (but hopefully someone else will find it useful) that I can quickly go to to know what caliber/frame size someone is talking about with all these numbers. The number in (parentheses) refers to the standard capacity magazine size.

9x19 Parabellum
Glock 17 - full size (17)
Glock 17L - full size; competition; longer slide + barrel than Glock 17 (17)
Glock 18 (fully automatic)
Glock 19 - compact (15)
Glock 26 - subcompact (10)
Glock 34 - full size; competition (17)

.40 S&W
Glock 22 - full size (15)
Glock 23 - compact (13)
Glock 24 - full size; Glock 17 frame with longer slide (15)
Glock 27 - subcompact (9)
Glock 35 - full size; competition (15)

10mm
Glock 20 - full size (15)
Glock 20 SF - full size; slim frame (15)
Glock 29 - subcompact (10)
Glock 29 SF - subcompact; slim frame (10)

.45 ACP
Glock 21 - full size (13)
Glock 21 SF - full size; slim frame (13)
Glock 30 - subcompact (10)
Glock 30 SF - subcompact (10)
Glock 30s - subcompact; slim slide (10)
Glock 36 - subcompact; single stack (6)

.45 GAP
Glock 37 - full size (10)
Glock 38 - compact (8 )
Glock 39 - subcompact (6)

.380 ACP
Glock 25 - compact (15) LE only
Glock 28 - subcompact (10) LE only

.357 Sig
Glock 31 - full size (15)
Glock 32 - compact (13)
Glock 33 - subcompact (9)

Is anything on here incorrect? Again, I'm not a Glock guy. This thread is just for reference. For those of you who do know Glocks, please let me know if I should change anything, and I'll edit the post.

SF means slim frame. The standard .45acp's and 10mm's feel like a brick bat in your hand.

Thanks. I didn't know anything about the 24, and since it isn't listed on Glock's website, I didn't put it here. I edited it and added it. Is that accurate?

Fixed. I'm seeing a couple other models here and there on the Glock wiki page, all of which are discontinued. I'll add them as people request them.

Is the 24 a 17 frame, or a 19 frame?
