Glock gave us the model 23 in 1990—an incredibly significant year in the firearms industry. First, was the introduction of the .40 S&W caliber. Collaboration between Smith & Wesson and Winchester, gave the world a 185-grain bullet that flies over 1,000 feet per second—a cartridge with nearly perfect balance of weight, mass, firepower, and consistent energy transfer.
