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.

GLOCK Gen5 pistol family

SMYRNA, GA. –-( 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.

    • These are different (the 34, anyway).
      Kinda like Ruger did a few days ago the manufacturers are putting out a deluge of press releases in anticipation of the SHOT Show coming up soon.
      Standard procedure.

  1. I plan on buying both as I carry both. I am not a Glock hater and they are welcome additions to my carry arsenal. They will always have a place in my rotation.

    • Glocks are amazing. I was always meh on them mostly because I didn’t care for polymer pistols but once I played with a 19 I went out and bought one. Amazing pistol.

      • “Glocks are amazing.”

        It’s kind of telling when TTAG’s own Dyspeptic Gunsmith (who has commented on his hatred of ‘plastic fantastics’ in general) has admitted to owning and carrying a Glock on occasion.

        I’ve owned 2, the 22 and 23. I would have zero problem owning one again in the future…

  2. In coming Glock hate. 3..2..1….

    I never cared for glocks until I bought a 19. I’ma happy customer. I’ll be looking at getting the 19X. Looks rad.

    • Glock 19 size in a Ruger package. Just picked up the new Ruger Security 9 in the LGS today.

      309.00 out the door, 2 x 15 rd mags. Grip is CZ75 like instead of blocky Glocky.

      Add another 200 to equal the cost of a Glock and could have grabbed the LCP.

      • I can’t wait to try the Security 9. It’s the only new semi-auto I’m excited to try right now. If it’s like a bigger version of the LCP II then I’ll look to buy one right away as I love my little LCP II.

  3. Am I the only one asking where the hell is the gen 5 glock 22, or the gen 5 glock 21/20? I get the the world is filled with the “9mm is the end all be all” but some of us like 357 sig, 45, 40, ect.

    • Considering how people have been getting rid of any 40’s they own, as well as avoiding them like the plague at gun stores lately, it might be a while before Glock comes out with a 22/23/27/35 gen 5. Shame too, because even though it took long for me to jump on the bandwagon (if there ever was one), I’m now a yuge fan. The G23 gen 3 (after the stipple job, trigger guard undercut and night sights) is one of my favorites.

      I’ll be surprised if a 40s&w gen 5 comes out anytime soon. But pleasantly surprised, as maybe that’s what it will take to help the 40 get its groove back, sales wise.

      • I hope so. I really love my 40’s, and my 357 sig glocks. They’re great, and I really hope glock releases something soon.
