GLOCK firearms are divided into four divisions – Stock, Unlimited, Rimfire and the new MOS division.  

Stock Division 

GLOCK Firearms are considered to be “Stock” if all firearm components are or ever have been available from GLOCK, Inc.  Additional allowable modifications are specified below:

  • “Hogue-Grip” type sleeves, “A-Grip” panels, “skateboard tape” or other grip-enhancing materials that do not materially alter the function of the stock firearm
  • Slide and barrel stripping and/or refinishing
  • Pearce Grip, Inc. grip extenders only on subcompact and slim line models.
  • Aftermarket replacement non-metallic base plates on magazines, Post and notch sights (“patridge” sights) excluding any sight requiring slide modifications.  Please note that fiber-optic and express sights are approved.

Any combination of GLOCK produced firearm parts that do not, in the sole opinion of the Range Master, result in a significant competitive advantage in the stock division are safe to utilize.

Unlimited Division 

The following modifications will necessitate placement of the firearm in the Unlimited Division:

  • Any non-post and notch sights including, but not limited to, “Ghost Ring” or laser, electronic and optical sights.
  • Wrap-around “grip sleeves” on magazines
  • Aftermarket component parts and barrels
  • Recoil spring guide/recoil reducer assemblies
  • Aftermarket extended slide stop levers
  • Firing pins (modified/aftermarket)
  • Connectors (modified/aftermarket)
  • Metallic magazine well “funnels” or “slugs”
  • Lights or other barrel weights
  • Any modification deemed by the Range Master to create an unfair competitive advantage.

G36, G42, G43 and G44 pistols are excluded from Unlimited Division

Rimfire Division

The Rimfire Division is for the GLOCK model 44. 

New MOS division

GLOCK Modular Optic System (MOS) Configuration

GLOCK engineers have developed the Modular Optic System (MOS) configuration to simplify mounting of popular optical sights.

Optical sights improve the accuracy at both long and short range, enabling faster target transition and quicker sight acquisition of your target. The MOS configuration is the best choice to hit your target. 


  • All scoring disputes will be determined by host range
  • Winners will be posted on the GSSF website at under the Indoor League tab
  • Go to for the GSSF Indoor League Match nearest you and come join us for some fun on the range.


A pistol certificate will be awarded for the top shooter in each of the four divisions – STOCK, UNLIMITED, RIMFIRE, and the new MOS division.

There will also be one random pistol giveaway.  Each entry for each competitor will count as a chance to win so the more you shoot, the more chances you get. 

The Overall Match Winner (Stock division) will receive the big personalized GLOCK Trophy.

Plaques will be awarded for the following:

  • Unlimited Glock
  • Rimfire
  • MOS
  • Guardian
  • Senior (GSSF Senior is 55+)
  • Woman
  • Junior

Pistols Available for Match!

In order to encourage even more participation and to promote competitive shooting, GLOCK has offered to bring extra pistols to the National Matches to be used by those who may not have access to a pistol but are interested in competing in the match.

Though free to use, those who borrow pistols will still need to purchase their own 9 MM ammo to fire in the National Challenge match. Those using a loaned pistol must bring or purchase ammo necessary for the event – limited quantities may be available on the range during the competition. Participants may sign up to fire in multiple relays.
