    The models are named according to the patent number which applies to that particular model.

    G17 was the 17th patent Gaston applied for ... not the 17th pistol patent, recall he made other stuff before getting into pistols.
    G26 was the 26th patent, G30 was the 30th, etc. You get the picture.

    The actual prototype G17 was originally referred to as the P80, but as Vol said, it was officially named the Glock 17 due to being the 17th patent by the Glock company. Prior to making pistols, they made entrenching tools and plastic training grenades for the Austrian military. They also made shower curtains and other items.

    The P80/G17 was designed and produced in response to the Austrian military holding trials for a new pistol.
