There’s been much speculation about what Glock may or may not announce at the 2015 SHOT Show. Single stack 9mm, the Glock 1911 and pocket polymer flamethrower have all been tossed around as potential product announcements. Well, at the pre-SHOT media range event, I found out.
The new product line announcements include a series of optics-ready enhancements to existing pistols and a new 10mm handgun. All four new guns feature the Glock Modular Optic System (MOS) system. MOS pistols include custom-milled frames and mounting plates that allow attachment of holographic optical red dot sights.
Four mounting plates are included with MOS pistols. These plates allow direct mounting of the following optics:
MOS pistols also include a cover plate which fills the slide cutout area if no optic is used.
“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.”
