Glock P80 Retro Gen 1 Austrian Army Exclusive Reproduction P81750203
In 1981, Gaston Glock assembled a team of engineers and designed his first firearm. The result was submitted to the Austrian Army pistol trials and won the contract in 1982. The Army then designated the first GLOCK as the Pistole 80. These guns were later known commercially as “G17s” and were only available in the US market for 2 years until the “Gen2” model was introduced in 1988. P80 marked GLOCKs were never imported into the US.
Lipsey's spent more than three years working with Glock to develop a faithful recreation of the original Pistole 80. It's not exactly the same gun, but it's as close as they could get it.
The P80 arrives in a reproduction of the 1980s-era peel-top container which is tucked into a collector's box, along with a cable lock and certificate of authenticity. Inside the container is the pistol, two 17-round magazines, a textured magazine loader and a nylon cleaning brush. As it comes out of the the container, the P80 looks and feels spot-on cosmetically.
