Glock Inc. showed off its new G19X at SHOT Show 2018 Range Day.
The new model — which features a compact slide and a full-size frame — emerged out of the company's attempt to meet the U.S. Army's Modular Handgun System competition requirement, said Shane Coley, Team Glock captain.
Glock lost to Sig Sauer, which also beat out FN America and Beretta USA, the maker of the current M9 9mm pistol in the MHS competition to replace the M9.
But the setback hasn't stopped the Smyrna, Georgia-based subsidiary of the Austrian firearm giant from taking advantage of its effort to produce what appears to be a sweet marriage of full-size and concealable handgun designs.
