    I know glocks are named after their patent number (I think?), but why did Mossberg name a shotgun the Mossberg 590 and other manufacturers?

    I’m unfamiliar with any consistent numeric system with Glock. I just figured they were Fucking with us.

    Glock 22? Shoots a .40

    Glock 44? Shoots a .22

    Glock 45? Shoots a 9mm

    I believe it is something to do with patent order though.

    Every manufacturer comes up with their own nomenclature system.

    They hire (fucking) Millennials (nowadays – gen-x is aging out of marketing departments) to think of new names.
