GLOCK, Inc. announced the launch of its newest Gen4 pistol– the GLOCK 41 Gen4. The G41 Gen4 is a practical-tactical .45 caliber pistol designed to maximize sight radius while improving weight distribution and balance.While initially designed for the tactical arena, the .45 caliber, and longer barrel make it an good choice for the hunter as well.

“The longer barrel and slide on the G41 Gen4 help to reduce muzzle flip and felt recoil, while the longer sight radius makes it more accurate.
