Video—Glock 19 Gen5 MOS FS 9 mm Pistol

posted on March 12, 2019
To the delight of concealed-carry practitioners and other defense-minded individuals, Glock's G19 Gen5 MOS pistol, released in 2018, serves well for everyday carry, as a crossover duty arm or tucked next to the bedside. The Glock 19 Gen5 MOS (Modular Optic System) FS provides shooters with a fully optioned 5th generation striker-fired pistol that includes standard features that were once aftermarket modifications, such as front slide serrations and red-dot capability to accommodate sights such as the Trijicon RMR sampled with this review gun. Watch as American Rifleman's Joe Kurtenbach walks through more of this pistol’s features.
