According to GUNS Editor Brent T. Wheat, the new Gunsite GLOCK Service Pistol (GGSP) is “literally revolutionary — it will tilt the gun world a few degrees off-axis, crush some pre-conceived notions and destroy a few long-cherished certainties, as wrong as they might be.”
Built from the G45, the GGSP boasts a Holosun HE509T-RD X2, an FBI Magazine Release and the fire control system features a Minus Connector. Wheat’s range time with the GSSP managed a tight 0.59"x1.3" 5-shot group off a sandbag at 25 yards.
Gunsite CEO Ken Campbell notes, “This GLOCK is something a young deputy with two kids, a wife, a dog, car and house payments can afford without breaking the bank. I always asked, ‘What is affordable but will reliably protect the deputies’ lives, their families’ lives and their citizens’ lives? That is exactly what the Gunsite GLOCK Service Pistol will do.”
What could be better than a “make your own pizza”? Building your own BFR! Jeff “Tank” Hoover’s semi-custom Magnum Research BFR revolver sports a 9" octagonal barrel and nitride finish, and handles .454 Casull loads like a champ.
