Here’s GLOCK’s press release heralding their new Gen5 G26 and G34 MOS. As you’d expect, they boast the same 20 design changes lavished upon the TTAG four-star Gen5 G19 and G17. We’ll shoot the new guns at SHOT Show media day and report, probably ahead of a full review. Watch this space.
SMYRNA, GA. –-(Ammoland.com)- GLOCK, Inc., announces today 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 twenty 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 Gen5 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 the G34 Gen5 MOS will be available on dealer shelves beginning January 22nd, 2018.
