In recent years, concealed carry has driven the handgun market. This year is no different. But along side some new and interesting defense pistols and revolvers are a number designed for hunting, competition and other applications. Here’s a look at the eclectic collection of handguns from 2015 SHOT Show.
Glock MOS versions of the G34, G35, G41, and G40
Glock has now introduced the MOS option for several versions of popular Glock Models. The G34 MOS is the standard G34 but with a modified slide to accommodate popular reflex sights. The MOS name designates the Modular Optics System, a platform designed to make mounting an optic to Glock pistols a simple task. It consists of a removable plate on the top of the slide that interfaces with adapters to mount eight of the most popular reflex type sights. This gives shooters with older eyes an opportunity for enhanced accuracy and makes the Glock platform of pistols more suitable for hunting applications. The MOS version of the long slide G40 with the power of the 10mm round and the ability to use an optic, is likely to find favor with hunters.
