Glock 40, Gen 4 is a 10mm round has a colorful, if not distinguished, history in law enforcement having been developed in the early 1980s by the legendary Jeff Cooper and adopted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a step up from the standard-issue 9mm round. It had been determined that the 9mm lacked the sufficient stopping power needed by agents in the field, and the obvious replacement, the military-issue .45 ACP Colt Government Model or Combat Commander, were deemed too much gun for most agents to carry undercover on a routine basis. Thus, Cooper’s 10mm became the intermediate step.
At least that was the plan, but the high-velocity round proved as hard to handle as a .45 ACP. In 1990, the .40 S&W became the go-to cartridge for the FBI and law enforcement, relegating the 10mm to near orphan status. Today, SWAT, hostage-rescue units, special response teams, and some military spec ops elements are the cartridge’s primary users. Oddly enough, 10mm also found popularity among handgun hunters, and the round has seen a resurgence in recent years with gunmakers offering more 10mm models.
Chambered in the powerful 10mm with a large per magazine ammunition capacity, the Glock G40 Gen 4 MOS is an excellent handgun for hunting and self-defense in the woods. The long barrel improves velocity and accuracy, while the extended slide and sights offer a longer sight radius for enhanced precision. This Glock 40 MOS has Trijicon RM04 yellow dot sights and is in very good condition. Purchase includes the original hard case, manual, three 15-round magazines, and a right-handed Kydex holster.
