When you see a 9mm GLOCK in a pocket dump it’s usually a GLOCK 19. Sometimes a GLOCK 17. A “compact crossover” G45 is more unusual, but that’s what we have here.
There are differences in size between the G17 and the G45 (although they’re not extreme). For example, the G17 has an overall length of 7.95-inches and the Gen 5 G45 has an overall length of 7.44-inches.
Overall width is different, too; the G17 is 1.26-inches while the G45’s is 1.34-inches. Trigger distance on the two models remains the same at 2.76-inches. Sometimes seemingly minor differences make all the difference, though.
What’s your personal preference? Do you have a favorite GLOCK?
