As with all things GLOCK, they are well supported in South Africa through their agents and I’m sure Bernhard Agencies already has these on order. These are sure to sell well and expect to see a lot of reviews coming out as soon as these hit the shelves. We’ll keep an eye out to see what people are saying about them, and report back. For now, sit back, relax and enjoy the view.
