The much-desired Glock 28 in .380 ACP is finally available in the U.S. thanks to domestic manufacturing.
It goes without saying that Glocks are the most popular handgun in the world, and Americans have been enjoying the pistol in almost all of its different flavors since the first were imported in 1986. Almost, because there were at least a couple of models that were off-limits here thanks to the 1968 Gun Control Act. That law established certain “sporting purposes” criteria that all future imported handguns would be required to meet, and the .380 ACP Glock 28 just couldn’t make the cut. The scarcity of this otherwise relatively common pistol only increased its desirability in the U.S. While Austrian-made models will continue to be extremely rare here, thanks to newly established domestic production in Smyrna, GA, the Glock 28 is finally available on the American market.
Facilitated by TALO Distributors, Inc., the new Glock 28 is now available through dealers affiliated with its network such as Lipsey’s. Regarding the physical details of the handgun itself, it is reportedly identical to the original Austrian-made version besides the markings on its frame and slide. In short, that means it’s a .380 ACP pistol with a 3.43-inch barrel, a weight of 20.64 ounces (unloaded) and a standard capacity of 10+1 rounds with flush-fitting mags.
Compared to the Glock 42, the other small .380 ACP Glock that’s been available in the U.S. since its release, the Glock 28 is a bit thicker and heavier due to its double-stack magazine. Despite this, the G28 is also appreciably smaller, making it an even better candidate for deep concealment or as a backup gun. The larger capacity helps in this department as well.
Production and availability of the new Glock 28 are currently described as limited, but they are shipping to dealers now. The MSRP has not been published, but online listings currently have it priced at around $500.
