What Are The Improvements Over The Gen 4 Series?
According To Glock:
Improved Durability — NDLC Finish:
The Glock 17 Gen5 and Glock 19 Gen5 feature the proprietary Glock nDLC finish. This enhanced finish reduces corrosion and scratching and improves performance in adverse conditions.
Improved Accuracy — Glock Marksman Barrel (GMB):
The Glock 17 Gen5 and Glock 19 Gen5 feature the Glock Marksman Barrel. The barrel’s new rifling and crown deliver improved accuracy for both the beginner and the seasoned gun owner.
Universal Fit — No Finger Grooves:
The Glock 17 Gen5 and Glock 19 Gen5 have no finger grooves on the grip. Removing the finger grooves improves the ergonomics of the grip, delivering consistent comfort and improved control to a wider range of consumers, regardless of hand size.
Quicker Reloading — Flared Magazine Well:
The Glock 17 Gen5 and Glock 19 Gen5 feature a flared mag-well. The larger opening found in the mag-well of Glock Gen5 pistols makes quicker and easier magazine changes possible, particularly in high-stress situations where fractions of a second matter.
Ambi Operation — Ambidextrous Slide Stop:
The Glock 17 Gen5 and Glock 19 Gen5 feature ambidextrous slide stop levers. Now it is easier than ever for both left-handed and right-handed gun owners to quickly, comfortably, and safely manipulate the slide.
