Gen 5s have been out for a while now. Any common issues plaguing them or are they good to go?
>>
>>38244923
The worst thing about the Gen 5 is it is still a glock
>>
>>38244923
The placement of the magwell cut out is beyond retarded. You don't rip the mag out by grasping the front of the magazine plate, you grasp the sides. All it does is interfere with your grip and pinches your pinky on reloads.

Anyone feel like the flared magwell is more flimsy? As it flares out it gets thinner and I just get the impression it’s a spot that I could easily crack if I fell on it.

I think this is the biggest complaint, particularly on the 19. Everything else seems to be an improvement.
It's a moot point on the 17 because the grip is long enough that you don't notice but putting a cut out and mag flare on the a compact gun was beyond retarded.
I don't know anyone who likes it.
>>
That mag sticking out looks as natural as tits on a snake.
>>
>>38245488
That and if you were a fan of polygonal rifling, well that's gone.

Notice the match crown and traditional rifling. They've traded a few FPS on the projectile for maybe a slight bit of accuracy and the ability to shoot cast loads.
>>
>>38245437
i can squeeze the magwell so much it feels like it may break

>>38244923
this fucking shit. my barrel looked like this after 200 rounds. and i lube the shit out of the gun.
i’m at 2k rounds now and i have to keep a shit ton of grease on the barrel to keep this from getting worse

The glock doesnt have a mag kickout which is so common on so many other guns

Glock smiles, not quite as happy as SIG smiles.
Don't worry about it too much. Barrels are parts with finite service lives.

Fixed back in the 00s, anon. Was only the .40s in the first place.
>>
>>38245734
i’m not too concerned, but it’s annoying to see after 200 rounds. i was gonna shoot the gun for a day and decide whether or not to sell it. now i can’t get my money back because it looks like it’s had 1000rnds through it
>>
>>38245738
It was only the .40s and only with *super hot* hand-loaded rounds (no factory .40 cartridge had the power to blow them out). And it was only in Gen 1. And if you like to fire rounds customized to be super-out-of-spec hot, you're just begging for your gun to grenade on you anyway.
>>
>>38245779
The finish wear won't progress much after the initial wear.
The barrel is still functionally perfect.

Must be your first (commonly used) firearm. They all develop friction marks on the moving parts after a while, it's perfectly normal. And you don't need to lube your gun up extra well because they'll just continue to happen anyway.

But it is true that if you bought it new and only put 200 rounds, that's a lot of wear for 200, looks more like my glock 19 at the 2000 mark.

Frankly that isn't what i've heard. IIRC there was at least one well documented occasion of normal factory loads KBing one on a cop.
>only in Gen 1
Chamber support was added slowly on the .40 models well into the late 90s if not 00s.

Nah. If your pinky doesn't get caught on reloads with a gen 5 glock 19, there is either something wrong with your grip or you have baby hands.

I mean, i know I'm not tacticool for saying this, but I think you have to be kind of retarded to appendix carry a pistol with a round in the chamber. Everyone talks about how it's not 'military,' but really only weapon you carry round in the chamber is your rifle, and when it's like that you keep your fucking hands on it so even if it did spontaneously go off you couldn't shoot yourself or your buddy unless you're a piece of shit.

Weapons were single action a century ago, so it didn't really matter if your hand was on the trigger beause you had to cock it to fire. DA/SA and automatics is what necessitated trigger discipline.

Not doing appendix carry though, is not something I would criticize you for, I'm just saying, a lot of people do it, it's not considered wild and unsafe. in general.

19x makes sense because people with big hands exist. to some people a 19 feels like a 26 to normal people. the 19 slide size is adequate.
17/26 is this
1 guy out of 10000 might see the one with a short handle and think yeah this is great idea. look how much more concealable it is. the rest wont be able to hold it comfortably.
>>
>>38247111

So you're making the case that most people can't hold a glock 19 sized frame comfortably?
>>
>>38247217

That's not at all what he said. He said that some people have big hands that make the 19 seem small.
>>
>>38246784
do you sag your pants or something? long barrels do get in the way when you sit down, which most people do at some point during the day.

>>38247003
until you have to actually carry the thing.
>>
>>38247239

And I'm saying that, given that the 19 is going to be a comfortable EDC frame for the average human, if you're going to make a glock for EDC concealed, it would be a good place to start. Concealing a 17 sized frame is more difficult than a 19.

If you're going to make a duty glock, the 19 is a stupid place to start because there's no benefit in having smaller dimensions. Especially in barrel length.

A glock 17 slide and barrel length on a glock 19 frame makes worlds more sense than a 19 length barrel on a 17 sized frame.
>>
>>38247301
the 19x isnt for ccw its for people who just want a gun but think the 17 is long. if its an outside the waistband carry the 19x is great all the capacity of the 17 while being lighter and keeping an acceptable barrel length.
>>
>>38247301
>glock 17 slide and barrel length on a glock 19 frame makes worlds more sense than a 19 length barrel on a 17 sized frame.
neither of those combos sounds like a good idea. 19 was designed as a light carry weapon for people that don't wear a duty belt on top of their clothes. 17 was designed as a duty weapon for people that do. making the 17's handle shorter and reducing capacity is dumb, and so is making the barrel longer on a 19
>>
>>38247335
>all the capacity of the 17
only with an extended base plate or with a 17 mag, which defeats the purpose.
>>
>>38247388

That's what the 19x is though. It's essentially 19 sized barrel / slide on an almost 17 sized frame.

With a lanyard hole.

>>38247335

Really? Weight saving for OWB? If it's going to carry like a duty gun, just carry a duty gun. The 17 is still one of the lighter full sizes on the market.
>>
>>38247335

>>
Glocks are just falling behind in the striker fire game. They've been largely superseded by other manufacturers that have way better features and just as much aftermarket. Hell a gun you don't have to fuck with from the factory is a way better gun that needs all the support from a third party

How come glock doesn't have mag kickouts yet? How come they don't have good triggers yet? How come they don't have an easier way of disassembling them yet? How come they haven't developed a newer better polymer yet?

If you can score a Gen4, do so, a new one should be a good deal cheaper than a 5 and better. The ambidextrous features aren't needed. The removal of the finger grips and mag cutout sucks in the 5.

So far Gen 4 is the best Glock. Gen 5 has some missteps.
>>
>>38247559
Better than the three?
>>
>>38245509
The only thing that actually matters in all of this is the bit with the cast lead. The accuracy difference isn't anything on a pistol and the velocity difference is - get this - nothing on a pistol. It still shoots perfectly fine for a CCW, duty gun or even a comp gun and it would either way.
>>
>>38245920
>jesus you stupid summer fuck could you be any more obvious. and i’ll lube my guns however much i want

Do you usually sperg out this hard over things that don't matter? Anyone with the disposition of a tantruming child over a calm civil discussion probably doesn't have the mental fortitude to own a weapon. God forbid you have a real problem in your chicken tendie life like getting dumped, getting fired, or your caretaker die.... you might try to shoot your way out of the problem.
>>
>>38247580
Admittedly, haven't tried a 3 so I have no basis for comparison. But I have a G19 Gen4 and my range buddy has G19 Gen5 and the 4 is the better one. Hell, if no one knew about which model they were using and the features, most guys would likely assume the 4 was the newer one as it's simply designed smarter.

I have the new 19. If the cutout bothers you, you are either:
a) fat to the point of incompatibility with life
b) handlet whose pink doesn't fully wrap around the grip

I am not a Glock shill. I mostly shoot HK, which makes superior pistols. But there is literally nothing wrong with this G19 in the configuration in which I shoot it.

Wrong. If the cutouts were comfortable for you, you have baby hands.
Having said that, I did undercut my trigger guard on both my Gen3 and Gen5
>>
General criticisms:
1. Should have undercut trigger guard from the factory
2. Should come standard with steel sights, preferably night sights
3. Cutout magwell should be on the sides, but honestly after roughly 2.5k rounds, it has never bothered me being on the front
4. Trigger is improved, but still stacks a little more than my VP9
5. Grip angle is fine, just further reduce the Glockhump

I prefer it to my Gen3, pic related.

I don't use extended mags for carry, you absolute low-verbal autist. Nor did I reference its capacity in any way.
Although, 15 rounds for carry is sufficient.
>>
>>38246749
The only people who appendix carry a glock are young micro-dick autists who know they have nothing to lose. If anything they think shooting off their baby penis will give them the adrenaline rush needed to overpower their much larger attacker.
Remember that next time you see someone who carries AIWB. It's someone with a micro-penis.

If you worry about slight marks that are supposed to be there, you're the type of person that puts plastic wraps on their living room couch. Do you want a brand new collectible piece or a gun to shoot with? If you bought it for the collector's value I have bad news for you.

Besides, you can just stipple the frame yourself to add back the (((value))) that you so crave.

lock-up on my USP got sloppy as shit after probably 10k rounds.

>>38245920
I have a Gen 4 19 made in Austria. I lightly lubricate all of the metal on metal parts including the barrel with M-Pro 7. I've got close to 2000 rounds on this particular handgun and it's showing no real barrel wear. I had a Gen 4 that was made in USA before this and it had accelerated wear not only on the barrel but all along the slide from carrying it in a Safariland ALS holster.

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but the finish on the Austrian made Glocks is superior to USA made because of EPA regulations or some bullshit. As far as I know all Gen 5's are made in the USA. That could be your problem right there.

Since I get mine on Blue label (425 a pop for a 19) I sold my USA made for 450 used, and bought the Austrian made for less. I contemplated sending mine back to Georgia for warrantied refinishing, but decided it wasn't worth the hassle.

it can't be used in court, or even to get a warrant. there's no chain of custody. they would have to implement full registration which tracks transfers after the initial purchase.

Yea, sure. We live in a country with frequently used parallel construction, where somebody claiming you're hurting somebody or thinking they smell something can and has been used to search homes. Hell, game wardens can literally search your house without a warrant at any time under mere suspicion. If you think they'd have a problem searching your house over a 4473 in the advent of a confiscation(already illegal) then you're delusional.
>>
>>38249365
they have to prove I own it first. 4473 doesn't do that.

>game wardens can literally search your house
that's a function of state laws, and I don't live in a state where that can happen. if you do, take it up with the supreme court, or move.

>in the advent of a confiscation
so when the laws change? we're talking about current laws. if they change the law, anybody that has ever been stopped by a traffic cop and had them run the serial number on your CCW will already be on that list.

10k rounds is. a p good service life dude, and honestly any gun after 10k is not going to be in great shape.

Did you buy it new?

>Now correct me if I'm wrong, but the finish on the Austrian made Glocks is superior to USA made because of EPA regulations or some bullshit. As far as I know all Gen 5's are made in the USA. That could be your problem right there.

Doubling up on this question
>>
>>38249537
Yeah, I live CA, and you are required to take it to a gun shop and have a new 4473 made in order to have legally sold it, but I could just argue I sold it in AZ maybe.. Dunno what they would do then.

Theyed buttfuck you twice as hard since selling guns across state lines is illegal. If you want to lie pick one thats not worse than the truth.

I honestly prefer the old Gen 3 spring...they had remove material for the dual captive springs.

Feels weak to me, and the magwell cut makes the base of the frame feel weak. It's already a problem to have sharp edges hit the magwell lips to cut the polymer...I just hope cracks don't develop.

>traditional rifling

STOP. FUCKING STOP.

IT STILL HAS POLYGONAL RIFLING, JUST A DIFFERENT KIND. STOP SPREADING BULLSHIT.

Thanks dude.

10k is a good service life? it's a fucking 45acp, my grandchildren should be able to shoot it. I bought the USP new and a used ParaOrdnance P14 when I turned 21. I still have the Para and shot it 3x as much.

how was the accuracy?

This. I'm not convinced the new coating is all that great. This was after my first outing with it, only 100 rounds next to my G43 with ~1,000

Otherwise its bretty gud
>>
>>38250652
Prove it ass boy.
>>
>>38249845
if you sell it in AZ, you might run into a headache if that gun ever makes it back into CA.

>>38250248
shipping a gun out of state to another person (that isn't an FFL) is illegal, not necessarily selling. he can legally transport a gun across state lines, then once there, sell the gun.

Learn to read you fucking nigger.

>Design enhancements include the GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) which delivers increased accuracy with enhanced polygonal rifling and an improved barrel crown, no finger grooves, ambidextrous slide stop levers for better versatility and control, and an nDLC finish, which is a tougher and more durable finish that is exclusive to the GLOCK manufacturing process.
>enhanced polygonal rifling
>polygonal rifling
>>
>>38250896
of which? it was always meh for both from the start. USP was still usable when I sold it but accuracy had declined. the Para I had Ed Brown fit a bushing for it and it'll put a 14 round mag in one gaping hole
>>
>>38250906
The Gen 4 coating was worse than the 3 and now the 5 got even shittier? The 4 and 5 have way to much material cut out where the recoil spring sits compared to the 3 as well. Glock is going backwards in quality but what’s new. Every company seems to be cutting corners lately trying to compete with the others price point. With HK dropping the price on the P30 series by almost 50% it’s hard not to pick that over these cheaper polymer pistols. I actually like the G19X but I can get a P30, P30L, P2000, etc for that price and I feel that they are superior.
>>
>>38250982
This is entirely fucking incorrect. If you and the person you're selling it to/buying it from are not residents of the same state, you are commiting a federal crime by completing the sale unless you transfer it through a ffl.

Stop giving out bad advice, you're going to get some other halfwit arrested over a law that shouldn't even exist.
>>
>>38251179
cite me a law prohibiting it that isn't regarding a 3rd party service transporting it. you're wrong.
if I go to visit my brother in TX, I'm perfectly legal in selling him a firearm I brought with me.
>>
>>38251232
No, go fuck yourself. Feel free to break that BS law as much as you want, I don't give a shit enough to Google it for you, but I don't want you to spread your retardation to newguns or soonguns either.

Its not a problem on the G17

All shapes are polygons fuckhead, that doesn't mean anything.
>>
>>38245509
Polygonal rifling has always been able to shoot cast bullets, Glock just doesnt want legal responsibility for anything they dont absolutely have to.
>>
>>38251265
>Feel free to break that BS law
you mean the law you couldn't find? kk.
you're referencing a stupid ATF regulation that doesn't matter, because there is no record keeping requirement for private sales.unless you sell it to an ATF agent, it won't even make it to court. it's the purchaser's word against the seller's word.
