After all the questions about the new Gen 5 series pistols, GLOCK has made a new page on their website including a new sub domain exclusively for Gen 5 pistols. This page includes a video with details about the Gen 5 GLOCK pistols.
This might clear up most of the questions you have about the differences between the Gen 4 and Gen 5 GLOCK pistols. There has been a steady barrage of information and videos coming from different sources about the new Gen 5 GLOCK pistols. We have been trying our best to stay on top of this new development.
THE NEXT GENERATION OF CONFIDENCE.
“Introducing the GLOCK 17 Gen5 and GLOCK 19 Gen5 pistols. GLOCK Gen5 pistols are the latest example of GLOCK’s constant pursuit of perfection. Gen5 pistols feature over 20 design modifications from their Gen4 predecessors. These changes deliver improved accuracy, durability, performance, control, and flexibility. Put the next generation of confidence in your hands.”
So far we only have news about Gen 5 GLOCK 17 and 19 models but we foresee a future for this generation on other models. Nothing has been officially released by GLOCK however, with the new GMB barrel and other important internal updates, we see no reason why GLOCK wouldn’t release other popular models with these upgrades.
FIVE DISTINCT FEATURES
“More than 20 design changes distinguish the Gen 5 pistols from their Gen 4 predecessors. Among these design changes are five distinct features which deliver an improved overall shooting experience and propel GLOCK into its next generation of pistols. Learn more about these new features below.”
So a quick recap: GLOCK Gen 5 pistols are available in 17 and 19 with Ameriglo sights, Night Sights and Polymer Sights. All 3 flavors are also available in their respective capacities with a 17+1 and a 10+1.
