Fresh to start 2018, Glock has unveiled its all-new Glock 26 Gen5 pistol.

Also joining the G26 Gen5 on Glock’s new release list are the G34 Gen5 MOS and the Glock 19X.

The pistol features most of the Gen5 improvements that were introduced in the G17 and G19 in 2017. These include the Glock Marksman barrel for improved accuracy, no finger groves on the front strap and an ambidextrous slide stop.

New nDLC coating covers the slide for enhanced durability and resistance to corrosion.

The G26 Gen5 also incorporates the improved fire control design for improved trigger pull and reset.

Due to the compact size of the frame, the G26 Gen5 does not have the flared magazine well found on the larger Gen5 models.

The pistol features a 10+1 capacity.

“It’s one of my favorite guns to carry,” says Shane Cooley, captain of Team Glock. “I go back and forth between the G26 and the G19, depending on what I’m doing for the day. But the G26 is hands down one of my favorite to carry and it’s easy to shoot.”
