Glock Is Considering Model 19 Gen 5 and 19X Pistols for Canada
TheGunBlog.ca — Glock GmbH, which is about to ship a special Canadian edition of its model 19 Gen 4 pistol, is considering whether to make similar versions of the model 19 Gen 5 and model 19X.
The Austrian manufacturer announced the Canadian Glock 19 Gen 4 in September, and fans from Vancouver to Halifax immediately started asking if they might get an adaptation of the newer version, the Gen 5. After Glock unveiled the model 19X three weeks ago, the first question Canadian customers asked was whether they might one day see a special edition of that gun, too.
The company is neither promising new Canadian models, nor ruling them out.
“I’ve been asked already about the Gen 5, will we do it in a 19X,” Jim Cassells, Glock’s director of Canadian sales, told TheGunBlog.ca yesterday at SHOT Show in Las Vegas. “I can’t say today that’s what we’re going to do, but we are definitely committed to Canada. I can see good things on the horizon. This is a great test market for us, to make something custom for a country.”
