    Glock 45?

    Will Rampart be bringing in the new Glock 45? Hopefully under the SHIELD program.

    Anyone hear anything on this? Sounds like a better choice than the 19X.

    Hi MoMoney,

    At this current point in time, Glock does not manufacture a Canadian -legal version of the G45 Gen5. If you want something similar, we recommend giving the Glock 19X a try.

    Not quite.. but I appreciate your assumption! There are actually quite a few differences, and a quick Google search will tell you the same.

    - It's a true Gen 5, whereas the 19X lacks a few of the Gen 5 features (small, but true) internal enhancements, a flared magwell (saves me $100+ on the magwells I buy for my glocks0
    - Front Slide Serrations. Instantly saves me hundreds of dollars between the work & refinishing
    - That nonsense lanyard loop is gonezo
    - IT CAN FIT ALL MAGAZINES. DOESN'T REQUIRE 19X SPECIFIC MAGS! Especially the nice new Gen 5 mags that will eventually be replacing the OEM mags sold everywhere. Wont be very fun when none of those will fit the 19X.

    There's a few other pros as well. But for the same price, I'd take the 19X any day. And yes, I happen to favor black guns vs. coyote tan.. but that has very little to do with this. Overall, the 45 should be more reliable due to it being an actual Gen 5. And Glock and tons of reviews have proven the Gen 5 components to be a step up from the Gen 4 components in terms of reliability.
