Back in September, 2017 the internet noticed a new trademark for a Glock product called “Glock 19X”. This small, ambiguous leak fueled speculation across discussion forums, but it wasn't until today that something much more concrete spilled, apparently by Glock itself.

Users on Glocktalk and forums today discovered and shared a URL that was used as a landing page to announce the Glock's 45ACP G41 a couple years ago. The URL,, appears to have been re-used to host a sandboxed website and landing page for the release of a new Glock pistol, the Glock 19X. Sometime within the last 24 hours, the site was updated and now hosts information about the company's 30th Anniversary G17 Gen4 pistol.

A page that gave details about the pistol and displayed a Glock promotional video that was hosted by Youtube was shared. The video was shared more than 1,700 times on Facebook before being pulled. This in addition to an unknown number of posts on other sites that provided direct links to the page.


While the link redirects and the Youtube video itself has been pulled, forum members posted screenshots of the information.


Announcing Glock 19X

GLOCK, Inc. introduces their first ever “Crossover” pistol, the GLOCK 19X, which combines the best features of two of its most popular and most trusted field-tested platforms. The full-size frame and the compact slide have joined forces to produce the ideal pistol for all conditions and all situations.

“The G19X was developed for the military and is a practical everyday pistol that will do what you need it to do, when you need it to; every time, in every condition,” says GLOCK VP Josh Dorsey. “The pistol was developed for the military using GLOCK’s combat proven experience with consideration to efficiency, dependability and durability. Through rigorous testing, the G19X stands out above the competition and has the ability to function in all situations with ultimate reliability and accuracy. Our goal was to meet the demanding needs of the military while maintaining our standard of perfection. With proven results, the G19X delivers maximum efficiency and trustworthiness.”

Confidence now comes in the coyote color with the first-ever factory colored slide. The nPVD slide coating of the GLOCK 19X prevents corrosion, resists chemicals, and stands up against the elements. Additional design features of the G19X include the GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) with enhanced polygonal rifling and an improved barrel crown for increased accuracy, ambidextrous slide stop levers and no finger grooves for better versatility, and a lanyard loop for retention. The pistol includes a standard 17-round magazine and two 17+2-round extended magazines along with a coyote-colored pistol case.

The aggregate effect of all the G19X design enhancements gives any user the assurance to succeed and survive in all situations. A perfect “Crossover to Confidence”.

The G19X will be available beginning January 22nd, 2018 at select dealers.
