New GLOCK Models Officially Unveiled at SHOT

Glock MOS LineupAlthough ads for the new GLOCK MOS models were leaked several weeks ago, they haven’t been officially announced by the Austrian firearms maker until now.

GLOCK, Inc. announced yesterday the release of the new Modular Optic System (MOS). The MOS platform was designed by GLOCK engineers to enable users to mount their preferred reflex sights to their pistol in order to improve their target acquisition.  The Gen4 models G34, G35, and G41 will now be available in the new MOS platform.  The GLOCK 40 Gen4 in MOS Configuration – a long slide 10mm pistol intended for 10mm enthusiasts as well as handgun hunters – will be available soon.

“Our research has prompted us to release the MOS configurations for the G34 Gen4, G35 Gen4 and G41 Gen4 and the new G40 Gen4 in the MOS Configuration.” stated Josh Dorsey, VP at GLOCK, Inc. “The new GLOCK MOS platform offers a convenient way to mount reflex sights without costly alterations to a warrantied slide.”

Glock MOS Adapter PlateThe MOS models include an Adapter Plate Kit containing 4 adapter plates as well as the tools for the removal and installation for a variety of optics. Optics are not included with the MOS pistols, leaving users the flexibility to add the sight of their choice.  Otherwise, the specifications for the Gen4 MOS configured G34, G35, and G41 are the same as their respective non-MOS versions.

The MOS configured G34 Gen4, G35 Gen4, and G41 Gen4, will be unveiled at the GLOCK booth (#12254) during the SHOT Show with shipments of the product beginning following the show.

GunLink Staff had a chance to try out the new 10mm G40 MOS during SHOT Show Range Day.  Not being familiar with shooting pistols equipped with reflex sights, both of our testers had a bit of a learning curve to overcome, but the extra mass of the long slide, the extra barrel length and the quality optics made the big 10mm quite accurate and manageable with very little felt recoil.

The ability to add optics to a factory pistol without having to have the slide milled out, and the flexibility offered by the adapter plates with various thicknesses will surely be appreciated by shooters of reflex sight equipped pistol.
