The GLOCK® G45 Compact Semi-Auto Pistol has many of the features of the new Gen 5 series pistols on a full-size, model 17 frame, with a compact model 19 slide and barrel assembly. The full grip makes it easy to grab the gun from a carry position and enhances shooter control. The shorter slide makes the gun faster to draw with less slide to clear a holster, and the shorter sight radius makes the gun faster to start and stop on target. The slide and main metal parts of the G45 semi-automatic pistol come with an ion-bonded, nDLC coating for increased protection against corrosion and scratching, and improved ability to function in dry conditions with minimal lubrication. The muzzle end of the slide has been beveled for smooth draw and snagless reholstering. Finger grooves, incorporated on earlier GLOCK models, have been eliminated on the G45 frame to enhance speed of getting the shooter's fingers into a correct hold.
