Video: Glock Announces New "Crossover" Pistol, the 19X

New pistol is a mix of the Glock 17 and Glock 19 features.

Glock just introduced the Gen 5 version of their pistols last year, but they aren't done rolling out new handguns.

Now they've just announced the Glock 19X. A handgun designed for the military, they're saying this one combines the best features of the ever-popular Glock 17 and 19 to create what they're calling a "crossover" pistol.

You can see it in action in their announcement video below.

"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," GLOCK VP Josh Dorsey said on the announcement page on the Glock website. "The pistol was developed for the military using GLOCK's combat proven experience with consideration to efficiency, dependability and durability."

Like the new Gen 5 handguns released last year, this one features no-finger grooves on the grip and the marksmanship barrel. It also includes an nPVD finish on the slide.

The main "crossover" features appears to be in size and functionality. It appears to be a more subcompact, concealable size, much like the G19, but features a 17-round magazine like the G17. The pistol will also come with two 17+2-round, extended mags.

And of course, you probably already noticed the military-style color scheme, which gives this one a pretty distinctive look.

Keep it here at Wide Open Spaces where we'll bring you more information on this new handgun as it becomes available. This one could be in select stores faster than you think. Glock is slated to release the G19X Jan. 22.
