The GGSP is built off of the Glock 45, a compact crossover pistol chambered in 9x19mm that combines a compact slide with a full-size frame, offering all the benefits of a Gen5 model. It utilizes the design and engineering Glock developed for its military pistol (G19X), combined with operator and worldwide law enforcement specifications.
“Glock is very pleased to collaborate with Gunsite and Davidson’s to provide the Gunsite Glock Service Pistol to meet the needs of those that prefer an optic-equipped, high-capacity, striker-fired pistol,” said Bob Radecki, national sales manager for Glock. “Gunsite, Glock and Davidson’s are leaders in their fields of endeavor and the features chosen for this pistol reflect that leadership and insight.”
The Davidson’s Exclusive GGSP adds several custom features to the very popular Glock 45. Directly mounted to the slide is the Holosun HE509T-RD X2. The slide is milled to accept the optic (versus using a plate) which was previously done by Glock only for LE and the military. Features of the HE509T-RD X2 include a titanium housing, Holosun’s Super LED with up to 50K hours battery life, multi-reticle system, solar failsafe, and shake-awake technology. Holosun’s HE509T-RD X2 retails separately for $505.87.
In addition, the GGSP is fitted with Ameriglo suppressor-height sights (allowing for co-witnessing with the Holosun), FBI rounded mag release, and lanyard loop. The GGSP also includes the Glock factory “minus connector” which reduces the trigger pull weight to approximately 4.5 lbs. The top of the slide is engraved with the Gunsite logo and iconic Gunsite raven image. This exclusive also comes with three 17-round magazines.
Gunsite Academy, located in Paulden, Arizona, is considered one of the world’s premier firearms training facilities. Gunsite Academy, founded by Lt. Colonel Jeff Cooper in 1976 as the American Pistol Institute, trains thousands of law enforcement and military personnel, as well as responsible private citizen gun owners, each year. In honor of the Academy’s founding, the GGSP serial numbers all begin with the prefix “API.”
Gunsite Academy CEO Ken Campbell said, “The Gunsite Glock Service Pistol is, in the Gunsite tradition, a fighting pistol. It is robust, reliable, accurate, and affordable. It is like the Timex watch—it just keeps running and running.”
“The Davidsons team is honored to have such great partners in Glock and Gunsite, and we are excited to deliver such a great gun,” said Mike Massimo, vice president of sales for Davidson’s, Inc. “We hope you all enjoy shooting it as much as we do.”
