The new G44 (Glock 44) .22LR pistol wasn’t the only new Glock product DefenseReview (DR) perused at SHOT Show 2020. Oh, no. We also got to take a quick look at the new Glock 45 MOS, or G45 MOS Gen5 compact-slide/full-size-frame 9mm combat/tactical pistol, at the Glock booth, and firearms instructor and Glock rep Scotty Banks was kind enough to take DR through all the G45’s features and attributes.
The G45 MOS is essentially a Gen5 gun with a Gen-5 Glock 19 (G19)-type slide assembly mounted on a Glock 17 (G17)-type frame (or gripframe) assembly, with a mini red dot sight combat optic mounting sytem on the slide, so you can mount the optic of your choice. So, you get a full 17+1 rounds with the standard mag (magazine), but 19, 24, 31 and 33-round mags are also available, so you can have up to 34 rounds on board. The magwell is flared for faster reloads, as well.
The G45 MOS’ slide sports front serrations and Glock’s “superior GLOCK hard-surface finish nDLC in non-reflective black”. The front slide serrations aid in weapon manipulation (i.e., racking the slide) under wet conditions. According to the Glock website, “additional features include the smoother trigger pull, the enhanced texture for sure handling, a reversible magazine catch, ambidextrous slide stop lever, the Modular Backstrap System (MBS) for individual adjustability and the incredibly accurate, reliable GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB).”
You can of course substitute a Glock (or aftermarket) threaded suppressor barrel for the standard barrel for use with a muzzle can (silencer/sound suppressor). That goes without saying, although we’re still saying it. As you can see in the accompanying photos and video, the G45 MOS 9mm pistol features suppressor-height iron sights, as well.
And that all adds up to one hell of a little 9mm combat/tactical pistol package. DR likes this one.
Defense Review shot a video of Mr. Banks showing us the G45 MOS, and you can watch it below.
