No. Strictly speaking, Glocks are "safe-action" which is a Glock proprietary term. Glocks are neither double action nor single action. They have attributes of both types.

Is Glock a single action pistol?

Glock describes their action design as "safe-action," and it has characteristics of both single- and double-action designs. Like a single-action, chambering a round sets the striker (firing pin) mechanism, but like a double-action that striker is pulled back farther by pulling the trigger. The idea behind the design was to have a shorter and lighter trigger pull than a DA gun, but not to have a fully cocked striker ready to fall like a SA gun, without requiring a manual safety like SA guns.
