Rumor Mill – Glock G45 – The Black G19X

Monday, September 24th, 2018

IMG_6231

With last year’s reveal of the G46 – a new rotating lug pistol design created specifically for a German Police solicitation, many of us were left wondering: “What about the G44 and G45?”. The G44 is still in the dark, but a leaked ad sheet has been making the rounds revealing the G45, and, somewhat surprisingly, it’s essentially the G19X, but in black.

The ad sheet, which is in German, claims that the G45 was designed for Military requirements, and, just like the G19X, features a G19-sized slide with a full, G17-sized grip. There are a couple of notable changes from the G19X design, however: the inclusion of front charging serrations on the slide (like the limited release ‘FS’ models) and a flared magwell that does away with the oft-criticized mag well cutout on the standard Gen5 models. This differs from the magwell of the G19X, which features a front flair which sits in front of the seated magazine, making it incompatible with the elongated Gen5 magazine floorplates. Aside from those changes, the G45 has all the standard Gen5 updates:

  • nDLC finish
  • Glock Marksman barrel
  • Ambi slide stop
  • Magazine w/ orange follower
  • Improved trigger mechanism
  • No finger grooves
  • We’re filing this one under ‘Rumor Mill’ because as real as this sheet looks, there doesn’t appear to be any official word on the G45 from Glock as of the time of posting. We’ll post an update if and when an official announcement is made.

    No longer rumor, Glock issued these two press releases this morning:

    The Ultimate Service Pistol

    GLOCK Introduces a New Addition to the Crossover Design

    SMYRNA, Ga. – Sep 24, 2018 Today, GLOCK, Inc. announced a new addition to the 9X19 family of pistols featuring the latest in design and engineering seen in the 5th Generation of GLOCK pistols. The GLOCK 45 combines the fast handling of the GLOCK 19 compact-sized slide with the full-size frame as a compact Crossover.

    Taking on the Crossover design of the GLOCK 19X and the superior GLOCK hard-surface finish in non-reflective black, the G45 makes the ultimate service pistol.

    “After the release of the G19X, we saw a strong interest from the law enforcement community for the design in a black model,” said GLOCK, Inc. VP Josh Dorsey. “The G45 is the result of a design that meets the demanding level of reliability with distinctive Gen5 design enhancements to improve durability, accuracy and performance to those who go into harm’s way where fractions of a second matter.”

    Engineered with the GLOCK perfection promise, the G45 features the Safe Action System® and is backed by torture-testing that has made GLOCK a name synonymous with innovation and reliability.

    The G45 incorporates elements of the 5th Generation of GLOCK pistols including a smoother trigger pull, an enhanced frame texture for sure handling, a reversible magazine catch, ambidextrous slide stop lever, the Modular Backstrap System (MBS) for individual adjustability and the incredibly accurate, match-grade GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB). The G45 also features front serrations which are precision-milled forward of the ejection port on both sides.

    The GLOCK Compact Crossover Pistol Model G45 will make its debut at The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference and will be available on dealer shelves beginning October 5th.

    Rampart Range Day 18 – Glock 19X

    Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

    Developed for the US Army’s Modular Handgun System solicitation, the GLOCK 19X is still relatively new in Canada.

    It combines full-size GLOCK 17 frame and the compact GLOCK 19 slide. Additionally, it features the GLOCK Marksman Barrel with polygonal rifling and an improved barrel crown, no finger grooves, ambidextrous slide stop levers for better versatility, and a lanyard loop.

    Finally, it’s their first factory colored slide. The improved nPVD slide coating prevents corrosion, resists chemicals, and stands up against the elements. The pistol comes in coyote color and includes a standard 17-round magazine and two 17+2-round magazines along with a coyote-colored pistol case.

    GLOCK pistols are available for unit and agency orders in Canada from Rampart Corp.

    SHOT Show Industry Day At The Range – Glock

    Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

    Glock had their new range of Gen 5 pistols out at range day, including the G19X, which is based on Glock’s entry for the US Army’s Modular Handgun System solicitation.

    IMG_0130

    Right off the bat, it’s fair to say that the G19X isn’t a true Gen 5 pistol. While it incorporates some of the Gen 5 changes, such as a dual finish slide, ambidextrous safety, and lack of finger grooves, in was developed specifically for the US Army’s solicitation. What this translates to, feature-wise, is:

    A compact-size slide on a full-size frame
    A removable lanyard loop
    Tan-colored magazines
    No front grip cutout

    This lack of a cutout also means the new Gen 5 magazines are incompatible with the G19X, due to their larger floor plates, but older Gen magazines are good-to-go. Factory +2 floor plates also up the capacity to 19+1.

    Elaborating on the aforementioned “dual finish slide”, much like the Gen 5 guns feature an nDLC finish, the G19X features an nPVD finish, with a color the rep was adamant should be referred to as ‘Coyote’; officially, it’s not Flat Dark Earth, Desert Tan, or any such variation, folks.

    The trigger, noted in literature as featuring a smoother pull with a weight of 5.8 lbs., felt pretty similar to a standard Glock factory trigger, if a bit nicer. The factory night sights were clear and functional, and easy to point at the target. The full-size grip, derisive as it’s seen by some, felt good in the hand, with the lack of finger grooves contributing to the comfort.
