  • Glock 5th Gen G17 and G19

    These are now released.

    Have any of you picked one up or fired a buddies?

    Mine are all Gen 3, but I'm curious to what your thoughts are on this new gen from Glock.

    Glock, Inc., has announced the 5th generation of its G19 and G17 pistols, which feature more than 20 design changes that distinguish them from their Gen4 predecessors.





    "The development of our Gen5 pistols was the result of the constant pursuit of perfection and a desire to meet the requests of the consumer market," said Glock, Inc. Vice President Josh Dorsey. "We have combined the standards of high-level performance and reliability with distinctive design enhancements to improve durability, accuracy, and performance. The benefits enhance the shooter experience at the range and in high-stress situations where fractions of a second matter."

    The Gen5 pistols are a variation of the M pistol used by the FBI. Through rigorous testing and development, Glock has combined the historical reliability and trust in the brand with precisely engineered design changes to meet the demand of consumers world-wide.

    Among the design changes are five key features. The Glock Marksman Barrel (GMB) utilizes new barrel rifling to deliver improved accuracy. The removal of the finger grooves and an added ambidextrous slide stop delivers improved control and flexibility. The nDLC finish is a tougher and more durable finish that is exclusive to the Glock manufacturing process. Introduction of a flared mag-well increases performance by making it easier to funnel the magazine into the mag-well, particularly in high-stress situations.



    The roots of the Gen5 pistols lie in a request by Federal Law Enforcement for a new service pistol. "Our goal was to meet the demanding needs of law enforcement agencies while maintaining our standard of perfection," said Dorsey. "Once the pistols we submitted proved themselves in testing and were adopted, consumers began asking for those pistols. The Gen5 pistols we are introducing today meet that demand."
