Glock has unveiled its competition-based Glock 34 Gen5 MOS. Glock designed the optic-ready pistol for speed and accuracy.

The G34 Gen5 MOS sees its release alongside two additional new pistols from Glock: The Glock 26 Gen5 Subcompact and the Glock 19X.

Glock 34 Gen5 MOS — Bred for Competition

The G34, long slide, is very popular with competitive shooters and the Gen5 features will be a welcome improvement.

Glock has made the G34 Gen5 available only in MOS configuration, according to Shane Cooley, captain of Team Glock.

“This one, I have to say, I’m probably the most excited about,” Cooley says. “It’s our Glock 34, which is what I compete the most with. So now I finally get to take a Gen5 out to the range for all of our competitions.”

As with the other Gen5 guns, the 34 has the improved nDLC finish, Glock marksman barrel, flared magazine well, ambidextrous slide stop and no finger grooves.

“I really think [the marksman barrel] is going to be a great additional to the pistol,” Cooley says. “I’m incredibly excited to get out and compete with it.”

The G34 Gen5 MOS ships Jan. 22.
