Meh. About as compelling as the Gen 4's.

Ambi mag release more important than an ambi slide stop.

Don't you still have to swap sides to use the "fully amidextrous" release?

Good article on the break down.

I'll probably pick one up over the next couple of months but only because I've been needing another 19 so why not just get the new one.

Yep. I'll probably pick up a 17 as soon as my wife lets me, just for the no finger grooves.

Better off waiting for the MHS version.

Same thought I had, I'll stick with my gen 3's....

This Glock is 90% of what my dream Glock would be. Add some front serrations and it's the perfect Glock imo. I'll def be picking up a 19 when I can find one.

*yawn*

I can't stand how the new slide chamfer doesn't match up with the dust cover portion of the frame. Why Glock, WHY?

Yeah, it kind of looks like Glock put out a new product because they thought they had to...not because they had something awesome to offer. In all fairness, I didn't think much of the Gen 4's. My Gen 3's will last longer than I will.

I actually don't currently own a Glock, usually shoot metal framed pistols. May get a Gen 5, the local stores have them in-stock.

I picked up one of those recently. I feel all manly slugging a 5 lb pistol around. I'm just going to throw it at the enemy and watch them scatter! [:D]

My friends who've shot the gen 5 said that they are waiting on the MHS model, due to not liking the cutout on the front strap. I'm waiting to checkout the M&P M2.0 compact.

So for those shooting these..much difference?

Not sure I dig the cut out either..but havenít touched one yet

Yes, big difference.

This is exactly why I bought the Gen 5. No allegiance to earlier models as this is my first 19 (and small frame pistol).

No real reason to upgrade from my Gen3's, but I figure I might pick up a G45 just to see how the new marksmen barrels shoot.

I have a Gen4 not really looking at the Gen5 but I am looking at the G48 for a new CC weapon.
