Glock announced its latest pistol, the Glock 19X, reached a significant sales milestone this month with over 100,000 pistols sold in a mere six months.
Developed for the U.S. Army Modular Handgun System pistol solicitation, which ultimately went to Sig Sauer’s P320, Glock released the 19X to consumers in January 2018 at SHOT Show in Las Vegas. The 19X combines the company’s most popular pistols — the Glock 17 and Glock 19 — into one 9mm platform offering a full size frame paired to a compact slide.
“By combining the standards of high-level performance and reliability with distinctive design enhancements, this pistol offers proven results and delivers maximum efficiency,” Glock VP Josh Dorsey said in a press release. “These shipping numbers not only validate the earned trust our customers put in Glock, but also, demonstrate Glock’s proven manufacturing and surface treatment capabilities ensuring the company can deliver pistols in the quality and quantity that our customers demand.”
Glock said 19X sales are steadily climbing, with distributors noting the uptick in interest among consumers. “The Glock 19X has helped reinvigorate the polymer pistol market. Its demand and popularity has exceeded our expectations,” Flint Virgets, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Lipsey’s, the nation’s leading wholesale firearms distributor, offered in a news release. The coyote colored Glock 19X is priced at $749.
