The Georgia-based gun maker Glock introduced on Monday a new compact handgun, the Glock 45, and expanded the Gen5 pistol design to include the Glock 17 MOS and Glock 19 MOS.

For the Glock 45, the company describes it as a crossover design that utilizes a compact slide and a full-size frame. The new gun includes all the popular Glock features like a passive trigger safety, front slide serrations, ambi controls, modular backstrap system, and a Glock marksman barrel.

The Glock Compact Crossover Pistol Model G45 will make its debut at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference next month.

Next, the new Gen5 MOS — Modular Optics System, which was introduced in January — will make the Glock 17 and Glock 19 optic ready for precision shooting.

“The MOS platform offers a convenient way for users to mount reflex sights without costly alterations to an original Glock slide,” said osh Dorsey, Glock vice president. “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 G17 Gen5 MOS and the G19 Gen5 MOS will be available for purchase starting Oct. 5 at participating dealers.
