In 1997 «Glock», continuing a series of ultra-compact models of family creation Glock, released under a powerful 10 mm Auto cartridge pistol Glock 29.
Glock 29 is designed for concealed carry under light clothing, while possessing high for this class of weapons, firepower and stopping power of the bullet cartridge used.
subcompact (Subcompact - compact) Glock 29 pistol in its design represents another modification of the basic model adapted Glock 17 chambered for 10 mm Auto and being a kind of compact models Glock 20.
Unlike the Glock 17 and Glock 20 pistol Glock 28 was amended, associated with a decrease in the size of the weapon: significantly shortened barrel casing shutter, frame and handle. Front and rear faces cover-shutter rounded to the contours of weapons were not allocated when concealed carry.
In the basic model
Glock 29 was created option - Glock 29SF (SF - «Short Frame»), differ only over a narrow handle obtained by shifting its back part forward. Glock 29SF developed specifically for easy hold arrow with a small wrist, as due to the use of 10 mm Auto cartridge was significantly increased pistol grip.
With rails under the barrel
Automation Glock model 29, as in previous pistols family «Glock» (except kalibra.380 Auto), works by recoil barrel with his short course. The barrel is locked due to the occurrence of the upper lip in the trunk box housing-bolt. Unlocking the bore is at lowering its breech down with the lower tide and breech axis during recoil barrel.

trunk as well as the casing shutter treated specially coated "tenifer».
udarnikovy pistol has a trigger mechanism, the so-called "safe action» (Safe Action), with 3 automatic fuses, including one - on the trigger. USM feature "safe action" is that during the recharge cycle gun hammer cocked only partially, while it is locked by a circuit breaker. Dovzvedenie impactor occurs only when you press the trigger, and the hammer is blocked from moving forward until the moment of complete squeezing the trigger. Thus, it is possible to achieve a monotonous effort on the trigger from the first to the last shot, which positively affects the accuracy. Standard trigger pull - 2.5 kg.
Sights open type mounted on the flat top surface cover-gate and include removable fly with constant sight. Normally fly equipped with luminous point and rectangular slot sight framed glowing frame.
power pistol ammunition is made from short detachable box magazine with 10 rounds dual inline staggered. In addition you can use the store capacity of 15 rounds of 20-caliber Glock model 10 mm Auto.

Under the barrel there may be guides for mounting various accessories (laser pointer, flashlight, etc).
All metal parts Glock model 29 processed on technology "tennifer» (Tennifer). As a result of this treatment, the surface to a depth of 0.05 mm around 69 acquires hardness Rockwell units (for comparison - industrial diamond hardness 71-72).

According to some experts Glock 29 is ambiguous with respect to the destination subcompact model. In the gun used very powerful cartridge 10 mm Auto, having high breakdown and stopping power. At the same time manifested such basic flaws chuck as much recoil force, as well as its larger size, increasing the length and weight of the weapon. Typically, such a cartridge is used in the full-size pistol with a barrel length of about 120 mm and more. Application of the same ammunition in the weapon with a short barrel leads to the fact that the powder charge is not completely burned and the bullet does not have time to develop a high enough speed and energy, and when fired form a large muzzle flash and a very loud sound of a gunshot. Also lightweight weapons causing an additional increase in efficiency. All of this leads to loss of positive qualities of the cartridge, causing new problems when firing.
