The all new Glock 45 9MM

Chambered in 9×19, the G45 combines the crossover feature by pairing a full-size Gen5 style frame with a standard-size slide featuring front serrations. 
Chambered in 9×19, the G45 combines the crossover feature by pairing a full-size Gen5 style frame with a standard-size slide featuring front serrations. This gun has the same general structure and Gen5 enhancements as the 19X, as well as the addition of front serrations on the slide and the removal of the half-moon cut on the frame.
The most notable Gen5 enhancements include the Glock nDLC finish. This finish is exclusive to the Glock manufacturing process. It is an ion-bonded finish that reduces corrosion and scratching. It also aids in the reliable functionality of the weapon in degreased or adverse conditions.
The Glock 45 has a very well-designed flared magwell that makes it easier to funnel the magazine and allows for quicker magazine changes.
Like its other Gen5 relatives, the finger grooves have been removed. I find this to be a solid change as it allows shooters to get a better grip on the gun.
As expected, Glock included the new Glock Marksman Barrel (GMB). It is a match-grade barrel that features a recessed target-style crown, tighter chamber specs and more aggressive rifling to deliver improved accuracy. I have run other Gen5 guns with this barrel and I can indeed tell a difference.
Lastly, they included the ambidextrous slide stop lever. This makes it easier for gun owners to quickly, safely, and comfortably manipulate the slide whether they are right or left-handed.
One of the most notable changes in the G45 is the inclusion of front slide serrations. This has been the fuel for countless forum discussions. I project a drop in forum traffic as those that spent countless hours pontificating about this point are now without something to complain about.
