GLOCK Expands the Gen5 Family & Increases Compatibility for the GLOCK Performance Trigger

SMYRNA, GA. – Jan 22, 2024 GLOCK, Inc., announces the expansion of the 5th Generation with the G29 Gen5 chambered in 10mm and the G30 Gen5 chambered in .45 AUTO.

The G29 Gen5 and G30 Gen5 pistols have undergone over twenty design changes, setting them apart from their Gen4 predecessors. GLOCK has meticulously developed these new models to continue the 5th Generation product line. The precise engineering changes in these firearms meet the demands of consumers globally.

The GLOCK 29 Gen5 is a compact pistol that packs a powerful punch thanks to the 10mm AUTO cartridge making it an excellent choice for concealed carry. Similarly, the GLOCK 30 Gen5 pistol chambered in 45 AUTO offers excellent accuracy straight out of the box, with the added benefit of the ballistic power of the 45 AUTO cartridge.

As Perfection Continues at GLOCK, we are continually in development of new technologies and expanding our product offering. We are excited to bring you these two new additions to the Gen5 line of pistols“ said Josh Dorsey, VP at GLOCK, Inc.

Among the design enhancements are the GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) which delivers increased accuracy with enhanced polygonal rifling and an improved barrel crown, the removal of finger grooves, and an ambidextrous slide stop lever for better versatility and control.
