Glock generation 5 is here!

Postby FergusonTO35 » Thu Aug 31, 2017 7:07 am

And, they finally got rid of those stoopid finger bumps. The gen. 5's also have an ambidextrous slide release and cut rifled barrel. After 37 years, they have finally started delivering on "Perfection". I'm pretty stoked about the gen. 5 and hope it is success, however I have already addressed those concerns with my 19, 22, and 26. I sanded the bumps down to gently rolling hills and retextured to my liking. Added Storm Lake barrels for shooting lead slugs. I'm right handed so the slide release is not an issue. Still, if I came across a good deal on one...

I love the line "after years of research and development..."
<ahem>
I call B.S. More like "after years of hearing shooters bitch about our (barrel, finish, finger grooves)..."

The only thing I wanted was forward cocking serrations.

I'm glad they didn't add forward serrations. Those, plus huge accessory rails make a good looking gun ugly real fast. I 'spose they could offer them for folks that want it though.

Yep, exactly. Apparently the Army and FBI feel the same way, as they specifically said no finger bumps for their new pistols.

I'll have to pass.
It took them over a year to admit problems with the Gen 4 recoil springs.

I'll let the rampaging herds of early buyers deal with all the design changes, then get one after everything has been worked out. At the same time, I don't really need another double stack auto and it would have to be a screaming good deal for me to buy another. I rarely carry a gun that big, the largest one in my rotation is my Glock 26. So, it would pretty much be for home defense and target shooting and I'm quite well covered there with a Glock 19, 22, Browning Hi-Power, and several revolvers.
