The Glock 24 was a limited-run pistol developed by Glock GmbH of Austria. The Model 24 was an off-shoot of the Glock 17 and chambered to fire the larger .40 S&W cartridge while featuring a new long slide as well as a composite alloy frame. The longer slide is what made the Glock 24 instantly recognizable. Regardless, the system fell out of production in the late 1990s, available only through special order at the time.

Like many of the other Glock pistols, the Glock 24 made use of the recoil/double(safe action) firing action. Magazine counts could vary between 10-, 15- and 29-round magazines. Total length was listed at 225mm (8.86mm) with the barrel making up 153mm (6.02 inches) of this. Unloaded weight was a respectable 26.7 ounces.
