Glock pistols use an internal mechanism with three components, with no external thumb activated safety switch as might be found on traditional-design pistols. Glock calls this the "" system. All three safeties are disabled one after the other when the trigger is depressed. They are: * Safety: An external mechanism contained within the trigger that prevents the trigger from moving unless the lever is depressed. * Striker Safety: A spring-loaded pin attached by an extension bar to the trigger assembly blocks the striker from striking the of the until the trigger is pulled. * Drop Safety: The far end of the same extension bar locks the striker into place from the rear until the trigger is pulled. These features apply to all GLOCK pistols.
