With their late model Gen 5 series and Glock 45 pistols new to the market, the company this week announced a number of police agencies are upgrading.
In a statement this week from Glock’s Georgia-based U.S. headquarters, the Baltimore County Police have made a high-profile switch from the FNS-40 to the Gen 5 G17 while Missouri’s Ste. Genevieve Sheriff’s Department has replaced their Sig Sauer pistols with Gen 5 G19s and G17 models. Meanwhile, in Washington, the Lynnwood Police Department has also swapped out their Sigs for Gen 5s and the Tennessee Department of Revenue is getting new Glock Model 45s in place of Sigs.
“The newest generation of Glock pistols demonstrate precisely engineered design enhancements that perform flawlessly to meet the demanding level of reliability, accuracy and durability required by those who go into harm’s way,” said Josh Dorsey, the company’s VP. “The continued adoption of the 5th generation of Glock pistols by those who swore an oath to protect and defend is a demonstration of trust and dependence in our pistols when seconds count.”
