Glock Gen5 series of pistols now includes two modular optic-ready platforms. The Glock 17 Gen5 MOS and Glock 19 Gen5 MOS come optic ready right from the factory and enable users to mount their preferred reflex sights to their pistols.

“The MOS platform offers a convenient way for users to mount reflex sights without costly alterations to an original Glock slide,” said Glock, Inc. VP Josh Dorsey. “The resulting combination of optical sighting and the unparalleled accuracy and reliability of the new generation of Glock pistols set a new standard for this class of pistol.”




The Gen5 models are precision-machined to provide a mounting system for all popular optic sights. With multiple adapter plates, users can quickly and easily mount electronic sights to the rear of the slide. The Gen5 MOS family of pistols also feature front serrations for easier and quicker manipulations. This includes the addition of front serrations on the G34 Gen5 MOS, which were introduced to the market in January 2018.

The G17 Gen5 MOS and the G19 Gen5 MOS will be available for purchase starting Oct. 5, 2018 at participating dealers.

Review: Leupold DeltaPoint Micro

Leupold’s DeltaPoint Micro doesn’t look like any other slide-mounted optic. Rather than using a flat-bottomed design, the DP Micro features an L-shaped mounting surface that covers the top-rear portion of its host’s slide, with a small 9 mm lens sitting atop the gun and the battery compartment overhanging the aft of the slide.
