Reliable as ever, Glock continues to add to its impressive Gen4 line with the Glock 41 (G41).

Based on the full-size frame, the Glock 41 Gen4 is a new long-slide .45 ACP handgun for 2014.

Built with a G34 (9mm) slide and a G21 Gen4 (.45) frame, the G41 is 2.3 ounces lighter than a G21 Gen4 while adding extended length to the slide. The lengthened slide gives a longer sight radius for more precise shooting and improved balance.

Using a Glock Gen4 frame, with its multiple backstrap system that includes four backstrap sizes, two of them beavertails, a reversible magazine catch, a high-traction texturing that wraps fully around the gripping surface, the G41 sports a 5.3-inch barrel.

The Glock Safe Action system, with its adjustable trigger-pull weight capability, is included in the design and contributes to the gun’s competition-worthy range results. The extended slide length of 8.31 inches gives users a sight radius right at 7.5 inches, a length that also has a salutatory influence on accuracy.

The gun’s 13-round standard-capacity magazine is of the Gen4 variety: mag catch cutouts are located on both sides of the magazine, so the gun’s ambidextrous magazine catch will lock the magazine in, no matter the mag catch’s position.
