Glock has announced the G45, the newest in the 9x19 family of Glock pistols, combining the compact size of the G19 with the full-sized frame of the 19X Crossover, and finished in non-reflective black.

“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.”

The G45 features Glock’s Safe Action System, and incorporates elements of the Gen5 pistols including a smoother trigger pull, an enhanced frame texture, a reversible magazine catch, ambidextrous slide stop lever, the Modular Backstrap System (MBS) for individual adjustability and the 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 on dealers’ shelves beginning Oct. 5, 2018.
