The Glock, sometimes referred to by the manufacturer as the Glock "Safe Action" Pistol, is a series of semi-automatic pistols designed and produced by Glock Ges.m.b.H. located in Deutsch-Wagram, Austria. The company's founder, engineer Gaston Glock, had no experience with firearm design or manufacture at the time their first pistol, the Glock 17, was being prototyped. Glock did, however, have extensive experience in advanced synthetic polymers, knowledge of which was instrumental in the company's design of the first successful line of pistols with a polymer frame. Glock introduced ferritic nitrocarburizing, a form of case hardening, into the firearms industry as an anti-corrosion surface treatment for metal gun parts.

- — Battlelog Description
The Glock 23 appears in Medal of Honor: Warfighter, and is used as Preacher's sidearm in Finding Faraz and Argyrus's Sidearm in Through the Eyes of Evil. Mother pulls one out in Hello and Dubai but does not use it. It is also used by Sad Al Din to shoot one of his allies at the beginning of Rip Current, and to shoot Mother in Bump in the Night.
It is available in multiplayer as the sidearm of the Spec Ops class. It has moderate power and accuracy, and features low recoil and a large magazine. The Glock 23 is a solid handgun for the class, with a good compromise between the stopping power of the .45 Auto handguns, and the capacity of the P226.
