It's official gang, Glock will be releasing a Gen 5 version based on the FBI's new issue pistols.  Anyone planning on getting one?  I own one Glock, a Gen 3 RTF2 19 and I don't plan on getting another...and yes I did dip my toes into the Gen 4 pond and didn't care for them. 

Here's an article on the new Gen 5:

I have found that "snap" of a Gen 4 Glock 23 (dual recoil spring) to be less than a Gen 3 Glock 23. I personally like the RTF for an enganced grip. As for the finger grooves, how does that affect the draw stroke? The finger grooves probably help my draw. Rifled barrels are already available after-market. I don't anticipate shooting Bullseye with a Glock.

I'm quite content with my Gen4 Glocks. They fit me very well, although I know Glocks, in general, are not a good fit for everyone.

I might be persuaded to upgrade to Gen 5... when the 10mm models come out.

From what I've seen the Gen 5 pistols are only being offered in 9mm.  I think that's why they dumped the separate locking block and trigger retaining pins on the frame in favor of just having a single pin for the locking block and trigger spring...but I'm no Glock armorer nor do I claim to be, so take that for what it's worth.  I'll be sticking with Sigs and HKs...and for tailored clothing, my PPS.

I am an AGI certified glocksmith, I own one, as Chris knows.  I work on them but I don't like them, horrible triggers, even after tuning!!!!  I like my 1911's, and hammer fired guns!!!
