SHOT Show 2011: Glock Adds Gen4 G21 In .45 ACP

January 19, 2011  | 


Glock will release two more Gen4 pistols in 2011, including the G21 .45 ACP and G34 9mm pistol, the company announced at SHOT Show 2011.

The two new offerings will arrive in the summer, and Glock will also release a new beaver-tail back strap to help larger-handed officers avoid slide bite. The back strap is expected to be offered as an accessory, according to a company rep at the Glock booth.

Glock now offers 11 Gen4 pistols that offer dual-recoil springs to improve accuracy and adjustable back-straps so officers can achieve an optimal grip on the weapon.

In 2011, available Gen4 pistols will include the G17, G19, G26 and G34 in 9mm; G22, G23, G27 and G35 in .40 caliber; G21 in .45 ACP; G37 in GAP; and G31 in .357.

Glock manufactured the G37 for the Florida Highway Patrol in 2010, after receiving a special request from that agency.

well this story is unclear. It says: "including the G21 .45 ACP and G34 .40-caliber pistol". The G34 is a 9mm pistol, and the one I am waiting for. The G35 .40 pistol has been released in December 2010 and appears in several shot show 2011 related videos on YouTube. So is the G34 9mm being released by Glock this year or not?

thanks for fixing the original typo!

Paul @ 1/22/2011 12:56 PM

We've corrected this, Ken. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. Yes, the G34 is a 9mm.

Jim Robbins @ 1/26/2011 11:00 AM

I'm still confused. In the first paragraph, you say the G34 will be released. In the fourth paragraph, you say that the g34 is available.

Paul @ 1/26/2011 7:00 PM

Jim, we've reworked the fourth graph to clear up the confusion.
