According to the Glock America book. Mr. Glock purchased every available pistol in Austria and gleaned the best and discounted the worst ideas and mechanical features..

As a foot note the book is rather depressing as it shows how greed and power can influence a corporations mindset. I was expecting an American dream and got a eye opening look behind the scenes as the monster they created grew to engulf everyone involved.
