SMYRNA, Ga. – May 6, 2019 The 2019 NRA Annual meeting wrapped on April 28 with 81,283 total attendees and over 800 exhibitors. Many from the firearms industry were in attendance, including GLOCK, Inc., one of the leading innovators and manufacturers of pistols and firearms gear.
The Company debuted its newest pistol at the show — the GLOCK 45 MOS — which meets growing market demand for an easy way to mount popular optics without expensive slide alterations.
“The GLOCK 45 MOS has all the same features as the previous GLOCK 45 model, including the front serrations, the nDLC finish, the full-sized frame with the compact slide and the GLOCK Marksman Barrel, but now with the MOS platform” said Shane Coley, Team GLOCK Captain and long-time competitive shooter. “The Modular Optic System on the GLOCK 45 MOS provides cover and adapter plates that allow consumers to mount any optics they want.”
GLOCK also premiered an interactive designer experience, where participants could build their own pistol by choosing a slide type, frame type, caliber, colors, sights and more. With over 900 submissions, the GLOCK Designer Experience garnered much interest among attendees. And all who participated were entered to win a trip to the GLOCK headquarters, travel and expenses included.
Additionally, NRA was Chuck Norris’s first public appearance as GLOCK’s new spokesperson. Show attendees could visit the GLOCK booth to “kick it with Chuck,” and snap a photo with the world champion martial artist. Lines to meet him wrapped around the exhibit hall, rivaling those to see the President, who was also in attendance.
The 2019 NRA Annual Meeting was a successful event on many fronts. To learn more about the new GLOCK 45 MOS, the new GLOCK Designer Experience and GLOCK’s partnership with Chuck Norris, visit us.glock.com.
