    The Glock 47, a testament to Glock’s evolving design expertise, has gained recognition among U.S. border officers and is now, as of late, available to civilians as well.

    Developed approximately four years ago in response to a CBP tender.

    The Glock 47 replaced the HK P2000 in .40 S&W with the Glock Gen5 models (G26, G19, and G47) in 9x19mm caliber in 2020.

    The design of the G47 includes a frame ready for a 17-round magazine and a 114 mm barrel length.

    Notably, the firearm’s shorter dust cover is compatible with the G19’s slide, allowing for a transformation akin to the Glock G45 MOS or G19X.

    This adaptability not only enhances versatility but also addresses logistical considerations by enabling the use of common parts like the G19’s dual recoil spring.

    The practicality of the G47 extends to the civilian market with the pistol’s ability to accept a shorter G19 interchangeable slide and barrel kit.

    Found through third-party retrofitters despite Glock not officially offering it.

    This feature underscores the G47’s universal appeal, encouraging potential owners to integrate the pistol within their existing Glock ecosystem.

    With compatibility extending to G17 holsters and a shared price point with the G17 MOS.

    For many shooters, choosing between the Glock 47 and Glock 17 is a difficult decision.

    Both pistols offer excellent reliability, performance, and handling characteristics, but they have unique features that set them apart.

    If you value modularity and the ability to customize your firearm, the Glock 47 may be the better choice.

    Its compatibility with parts from the Glock 19 Gen5 and Glock 45 Gen5 allows for a high level of customization, and its shortened dust cover contributes to comfortable handling.
