GLOCK Safe Action System                       ® REVOLUTIONARY. SAFE. GLOCK. GLOCK Safe Action System                      ® GLOCK’s revolutionary Safe Action® System provides a consistent trigger pull from the first to the last round. The three automatic, independently operating mechanical safeties, are built into the fire control system of the pistol. Every GLOCK pistol comes with 3 independent safeties: The trigger safety, the firing pin safety and the drop safety All three safeties disengage sequentially as the trigger is pulled. They automatically reengage when the trigger is released. 2 3 1 8                                                                                                 GLOCK BUYER'S GUIDE 2019
1 Trigger safety The trigger safety is a lever incorporated into the trigger. When the trigger safety is in the forward position it blocks the trigger from moving rearward. The trigger safety and the trigger must be fully depressed at the same time to fire the pistol. If the trigger safety is not depressed, the trigger will not move rear- ward and allow the pistol to fire. The trigger safety is designed to protect against firing, if the pistol is dropped or the trigger is subjected to lateral pressure. 2 Firing pin safety The firing pin safety mechanically blocks the firing pin from moving forward in the ready-to-fire condition. As the trigger is pulled rearward, the trigger bar pushes the firing pin safety up and frees the firing pin channel. If the user decides not to fire and releases the trigger, the firing pin safety automatical- ly reengages. 3 Drop safety The trigger bar rests on the safety ramp within the trigger mechanism housing. The trigger bar engages the rear portion of the firing pin and prevents the firing pin from moving for- ward. As the trigger is pulled rearward the trigger bar lowers down the safety ramp and allows the release of the firing pin. After firing, the trigger bar moves upward and reengages the firing pin. As the trigger is released, all safeties automatically reengage. 2                                      3 1 WWW.GLOCK.COM                                                                     9
