Glock, the Austrian gunmaker that claims to supply duty pistols to 65 percent of the American law enforcement market, is being investigated for tax evasion, according to a story in Business Week.

The story chronicles the company's rise to prominence in the late 1980s, when agencies began adopting its square pistol as an alternative to six-shot revolvers.

The story also attributes the company's rise to prominence with law enforcement agencies to its policy of accepting trade-ins of existing weapons, which gave the company an additional revenue stream. Glock resells the guns as police issue.

A sidebar story presents potential safety issues pertaining to the Glock 22 pistol used by officers in the late 1990s, such as jamming and unintentional firing.
