Received the following E-Mail this morning:

 

 

This is a special time in the history of GLOCK.  On August 30, GLOCK, Inc. will be announcing the launch of our new G17 Gen5 and G19 Gen5 pistols.  Because you are a member of GLOCK ID, we wanted you to hear the news first, from us, before the general public finds out.
 
The G17 Gen5 and G19 Gen5 pistols were inspired by the GLOCK M pistols used by the FBI and include many features the GLOCK community has been asking for.  There are over 20 design changes which differentiate our Gen5 pistols from their Gen4 predecessors, including a flared mag-well, a new nDLC finish, the GLOCK Marksman Barrel, ambidextrous slide stop levers, and a grip which has no finger grooves.
 
These pistols will be available at your favorite GLOCK dealer beginning August 30.  We hope you will go in to see them and try them.
 
Thank you for your continued support.

 

 

One would hope that all these changes have been thoroughly tested before general release.

I'm kind of curious as to the "over 20 design changes".

Evidently Glock may end up selling their MHS design on the commercial market:

* not "optics ready" (not fitted for a RMR).
* no forward serrations.

No doubt that'll be part of "Gen 6".

Dumb question, but isn't RMR ready just an optional different slide rather than something you would offer as standard?

I guess - https://us.glock.com/mos

Are the Gen 4 slides compatible with the Gen 5 frame? Or are there optional Gen 5 MOS slides?

All they had to do is port that design across to the Gen 5 slide. And add front serrations (which they also already do: https://us.glock.com/summer17).

They surely must take the MOS over to Gen 5.

Meet the new VW Golf. Just like the old Golf.

 

 

 

Although Gen5 has some more than cosmetic differences as can be seen here: http://www.thefirear...n5-glock-17-19/

 

they have also changed internals

looking into thw guts:

 

 

 

seems to consistently eject over the right shoulder. Many of the new features are like "why not earlier?" the bright orange followers, the rounded nose...

 

 

he should get a better microphone or is it him mumbling into his beard?

 

 

 

 

in other news the MHS competition entry is to be released to the open market for those who like their GLock in baby-poo colour and with a safety lever.

I was able to handle a Gen5 G19 today, as well as an earlier iteration (Gen3, IIRC).  The standout to me was the larger mag release that I could easily press; on the older model, it was hard to reach without shifting my hand a bit.  That's a deal-maker for me.

There are larger magazine releases for older Glock models for sale. Even from Glock: https://eu.glock.com..._catch_extended

 

I just found out that glock.at is not registered. Hmmmm.

Good thing I'm not claiming to be a Glock fanboi! :P  I'd like to actually handle the aftermarket release.  from the photo it looks like it sticks out farther than the Gen5 one.  I do wonder how easy either is to accidentally press.  In competition, that's an annoyance, but on a carry gun could be fatal.

Does this "Marksman" barrel no longer feature polygonal rifling?

I've seen it reported both ways.

from the photos I have seen it looks like  it still is kind of polygonal at its base, but with added ridges? :unsure:

 

haven't really seen a deeper look and gunsmith's explanaton what it is exactly and how this new profile works.
