By CTD Blogger published on in Firearms

Glock came on to the scene in the 1980s, and the handgun market has never been the same since. Always on the cutting edge of technology, when Glock has news, the market responds. Today, Glock announced two additions to the Gen5 family—Glock 26 and the Glock 34 Modular Optic System (MOS). Here is the full release from Glock.

Glock, Inc., announced the addition of the Glock 26 and the Glock 34 Modular Optic System (MOS) to the Generation 5 pistol family, bringing the number of 9×19 caliber pistols in the Gen5 family to four.

The G26 Gen5 and G34 Gen5 MOS continue the evolution of perfection with over 20 design changes to distinguish them from their Gen4 predecessors. Through rigorous testing and development, Glock has combined the historical reliability and trust in the brand with precisely-engineered design changes to meet the demand of consumers world-wide.

“The development of our Generation 5 pistols was the result of the constant pursuit of perfection and a desire to meet the requests of the consumer market,” said Glock, Inc. VP Josh Dorsey. “We have combined the standards of high-level performance and reliability with distinctive design enhancements to improve durability, accuracy, and performance. The benefits enhance the shooter experience at the range and in high-stress situations where fractions of a second matter.”

Among the design enhancements are the Glock Marksman Barrel (GMB) which delivers increased accuracy with enhanced polygonal rifling and an improved barrel crown, no finger grooves, ambidextrous slide stop levers for better versatility and control, and an nDLC finish, which is a tougher and more durable finish that is exclusive to the Glock manufacturing process.

The G26 Gen5 and G34 Gen5 MOS will be available on dealer shelves beginning January 22 2018.

    Yeah, if only Glock’s had a 1911 like trigger – no creep, crisp and break at 3.25 – 3.5 lbs, it would be the only pistol I would ever need. Still, the Glock was as revolutionary and novel as the 1911 when Browning designed it nearly a century earlier.

    I went the same route and got the Gen 3 Glock 32. Then I got two high quality conversion barrels and correlating magazines for the gun. So I can shoot 357 sig , 40 S&W , and 9mm. Gun functions and shoot great with all 3 calibers. I added some other customs parts and the gun makes a great EDC. Like it so much I did same thing with a Glock 33.
