More on the new Glock 45 9mm (VIDEOS)

Glock’s newest Gen 5 pistol, the G45, was released on an eager market late last month but how does it shoot? To answer that question, competition shooter Taran Butler takes a bone stock Glock 45 out for a test drive with a few different Fiocchi 9mm loads and just absolutely smokes the targets.

The new model, like the rest of the Gen 5 line, uses Glock’s Marksman Barrel, improved trigger, ambi controls, a modular backstrap system and flared magwell while adding front cocking serrations to the slide. It is based on the crossover G19X concept, which blends the full-size frame of the G17 with the smaller slide assembly of the G19 to create a more commander-sized handgun.

If you are looking for something a little longer with more digestion that the above Taran Tactical short, John McQuay with 8541 Tactical goes past the 1K mark on the new Glock and gives some impressions and feedback after doing so in a 30-minute video, below.
