GLOCK 45 - Compact Crossover in black

The compact crossover pistol G45 in 9x19mm combines a compact slide with a full size frame and has all the benefits of a Gen5 model. Utilizing the design and engineering GLOCK developed for its military pistol (G19X), combined with Operator and worldwide Law Enforcement specifications.

The slide has the proven, superior GLOCK hard-surface nDLC finish in non-reflective black. It comes with front serrations (FS) which provide an additional tactile surface choice when manipulating the slide giving the operator positive traction even with wet or sweaty hand. The frame is also subdued black, with a flared magazine well for fast reloads in critical situations. Additional features include the smoother trigger pull, the enhanced texture for sure handling, a reversible magazine catch, ambidextrous slide stop lever, the Modular Beavertail Backstrap System (MBS) for individual ajustability and the incredibly accurate, reliable GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB).

Dimensions of GLOCK pistol G45

Customize your frame size

The G45 allows the user to change the circumference of the grip to fit the individual hand size and comes with beavertail backstraps in two sizes.

The beavertail backstraps are easily changed and secured to the frame with a single pin offering the following options: a short frame (SF) version, a medium (M) and a large (L) version.

The beavertail backstraps keep large hands clear of the slide and offer more comfortability.

The short frame (SF) version without any beavertail backstrap mounted still remains a complete fully functional frame. Its dimensions are smaller than the G17 frame of previous generations.
