Official GLOCK training model thread (PIC HEAVY)

This thread is designed to answer the most common questions about the different GLOCK training model pistols. The pistols below are mine. There are different variations and generations, like all other models.


We will start with the “T” models. The most common is the G17T. The G17T comes in two calibers; the 9mmFX (more commonly known as “simunitions”) and the 7.8x21AC. The 9mmFX is a center fire cartridge and is the most common of the G17T. The 7.8x21AC is an air compressed cartridge. GLOCK says it exists, but to this date I have never seen one nor even found a picture of one. In addition to the G17T, I have seen pictures of a G19T, so other “T” models may exist.


The “T” models are considered real firearms, thus, all federal, state and local laws apply. They are legal to own (depending on your jurisdiction), but are available from GLOCK to LE only. They do pop up for sale from time to time in various places.


This is the G17T. Obviously, you can see that the “T” models are blue.


Valuable Info


This is the left side of the slide, denoting that it is a G17T and is chambered in 9mmFX.


Valuable Info


This is the right side of the slide, warning you that the pistol is designed for training.


Valuable Info


All of the “T” models get a serial prefix of “T” followed by numbers. The “T” prefix is reserved for “T” models only and is not found on any other model.


Valuable Info


Interestingly, this is a 3rd Generation frame, but the “T” has yet to get the third pin.


Valuable Info


This is the muzzle of the 9mmFX barrel. You can see how it is offset to the top.


Valuable Info

The G17T uses a regular 9mm magazine, though it comes with a blue magazine baseplate.


Valuable Info


The G17T does have it’s own recoil spring assembly and part number.


Valuable Info


The G17T barrel has a much longer feed ramp and is rifled.


Valuable Info


The G17T firing pin tip is offset to the bottom.


Valuable Info


The G17T has a unique locking block.


Valuable Info


Here is the locking block, removed from the frame.


Valuable Info


Aside from these noted differences, most other parts are the same as most other models.

Next are the “P” models. The most common is the G22P. The G22P is of course chambered in .40 S&W. I do know that there are other “P” models, though the G22P is what is most common. The “P” models are basically dummies used for training safely. With a few parts changes, they can be fired.


The “P” models are considered real firearms, thus, all federal, state and local laws apply. They are legal to own (depending on your jurisdiction), but are available from GLOCK to LE only. They do pop up for sale from time to time in various places.


This is the G22P. Obviously, you can see that the “P” models are red.


Valuable Info


This is the left side of the slide, denoting that it is a G22P and is chambered in .40.


Valuable Info


The G22P has a serial prefix of “PJ..” Only the “P” and “R” (explained later) have the “PJ” prefix.


Valuable Info


This is the muzzle of the G22P, no…no tiny bullet pops out here. The barrel is mostly solid. I’ll explain below.


Valuable Info


Though the barrel is solid on a G22P, it does have a chamber (for use with dummy rounds). In the event that you do load live ammunition (there are more fail safes, explained below) and it does happen to fire, this hole will help disperse the pressure, presumably.


Valuable Info


Here is the side of the barrel. As you can see, it has holes. This is for weight reduction to make the firearm point and weigh like a real G22.


Valuable Info

The G22P uses a normal G22 magazine. It does normally come with a black magazine baseplate. I added the orange for distinction.


Valuable Info


The G22P firing pin has no point.


Valuable Info


The G22P breech face has no hole for the firing pin to protrude.


Valuable Info


Other than this, most parts are the same as most other models.

Next are the “R” models. The most common is the G17R. I don’t know if there are any other “R” models other than the G17R. The G17R is chambered in 9x19. This pistol is designed so that the trigger resets after each pull, without racking the slide. It can be used with a laser integrated system or for general dry fire practices and other dummy practices.


The “R” models are considered real firearms, thus, all federal, state and local laws apply. They are legal to own (depending on your jurisdiction), but are available from GLOCK to LE only. They do pop up for sale from time to time in various places.


This is the G17R. Obviously, you can see that the “R” models are red.


Valuable Info


This is the left side of the slide, denoting that it is a G17R and is chambered in 9x19.


Valuable Info


This is the right side of the slide with the warning that the firearm is a practice sample.


Valuable Info


This is the G17R serial prefix of “PJ.” Only the “R” and “P” models will have a “PJ” prefix.


Valuable Info


The G17R uses regular G17 magazines, though I added the orange base plate for identification.


Valuable Info


The G17R has a regular, 9x19 rifled barrel.

The G17R firing pin has no point.


Valuable Info


The G17R firing pin (top) is much longer than a standard firing pin (bottom).


Valuable Info


The G17R breech face has no hole for the firing pin to protrude.


Valuable Info


The G17R has a unique trigger spring.

As for the last training model that GLOCK makes, we will discuss the “cutaway models.” The cutaways are available to armorers and LE, IIRC. The cutaways come in nearly every model, depending on GLOCK’s mood.


The cutaway models are considered real firearms, thus, all federal, state and local laws apply. They are legal to own (depending on your jurisdiction), but are available from GLOCK to LE and armorers only. They do pop up for sale from time to time in various places.


This is my very early cutaway G19. Someone foolishly decided to poorly polish it. I keep meaning to have it re-coated, but haven’t don’t it, yet. Though, what better model than a cutaway to prove the toughness of GLOCK’s metal treatment?


This is the G19 cutaway.


Valuable Info


This is the left side of the slide, denoting that this model is a G19 and is chambered in 9x19.


Valuable Info


This is the right side of the slide, warning you that the firearm is a cutaway sample.

Valuable Info


Only the cutaway samples get a “JQ” serial prefix.


Valuable Info


Here is a general pic of the left side of the gun.


Valuable Info


This is the side of the frame, so that you can see the magazine, which is also cutaway.

Leaving nothing to the imagination, GLOCK wants you to see how the magazine catch spring moves to the side.


Valuable Info


Here is the side of the magazine, showing the magazine spring.


Valuable Info


Other than the side, the magazine is the same as a normal magazine (though this one is earlier).


Valuable Info


Here is a top view of the cutaway internals of the frame.


Valuable Info


The cutaway firing pins have no point.


Valuable Info


Here is the barrel.

Interesting. I've never seen any of these models so this is very educational.

I'd love to have one of those "R" models for dry-fire practice. I wish Glock would make those available to the general public. Or some third party would make something similar.
