If you’re a fan of Glocks and .380’s you may have heard of the elusive Glock 28, a double stack .380 based on the 9mm Glock 26 frame. It’s been available in Europe for years but couldn’t be imported into the US since it didn’t meet the Gun Control Act of 1968’s “sporting purposes” criteria. That’s yet another gun law that needs changed/revoked since we all know that the 2A has nothing to do with sporting purposes. But that’s an argument for another day.
Thanks to TALO Distributors, Glock is doing a limited run of G28’s made at their US plant in Smyrna, Georgia. You can’t import the gun because it doesn’t meet the “sporting purpose” criteria, but you can make the exact same pistol right here. Makes sense right?
Anyway, there’s been a trend towards bigger double stack .380’s in recent years. They’re easy to shoot, light on recoil, and carry more than the typical 6 or 7 rounds we usually see in .380’s. If you ever wanted the 28 for your Glock collection, or have been waiting for a double stack Glock 42, thanks to TALO now you can grab one.
TALO Pres Release:
TALO Introduces the Glock 28 to US Market
TALO Distributors, Inc. and its member distributors are proud to announce the introduction of the Glock 28 to the United States commercial market. The G28 is similar in size and makeup to the G26 and G27. The major difference being the G28 is chambered in 380 Auto. Available previously in other markets in the world, this version of the G28 is made in Smyrna, GA and available to consumers for the first time in the United States.
Small in size and weight the Glock 28 excels in performance while measuring small enough for a pocket or ankle holster. Because of the low-recoil firing characteristics of the 380 Auto cartridge, it can be easily and accurately controlled.
