Here’s What’s New for the Glock Gen 5s

Glock Gen 5

Here’s a closer look at the new Glock Gen 5s.

The next generation of Glocks, the Gen 5s, have been rumored for some time now and we’re finally getting some good looks at these new handguns. It’s not surprising the first Gen 5s are the ever-popular 9mm G 17 and G19.

Glock put out this compilation of a bunch of videos they made that showcase each of the new features they’re putting into these handguns.

There are definitely some interesting new features on these pistols. Of course it’s hard to judge a gun without handling it or firing it first. It will be interesting to see how these stack up against the still extremely popular Gen 4 and Gen 3s.

The newer and stronger finish does sound interesting to me however.  I purchased a brand-new G19 Gen 4 last year and the slide is already showing some light signs of wear. I’d be curious to see how much better this finish holds up for an everyday carry kind of gun.

We’re sure to be hearing a lot more about these new Glocks in the coming days and weeks. Keep it here at Wide Open Spaces for all the latest information!
