Glock 46


The rotating barrel likely makes the Glock 46 softer shooting than its tilting barrel counterparts.

Other pistols with rotating barrels, such as..

  • Beretta’s Px4,
  • Grand Power’s K100,
  • and Archon/Arsenal’s Stryk B all are known for their pleasant recoil. It also provides some accuracy benefits. Glock’s approach to the rotating barrel appears to address some concerns leveled at other pistols with rotating barrels, which can be difficult to field strip.

Glock’s barrel appears to put two camming pins on the barrel itself, as opposed to the Px4 which places a camming surface on the barrel itself. The change in the placement of the rotating parts could make the Glock 46’s field strip simpler than some of its rotating barrel competition.
