Gen 5s have been out for a while now. Any common issues plaguing them or are they good to go?
>>38244923The worst thing about the Gen 5 is it is still a glock
>>38244923The 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.
>>38244923Are they still having that exploding problem?
>>38245255That problem was fixed before you were born.
>>38245297And when was that, anon?
>>38245221THIS THIS THIS THIS
>>38244923The mags suck
>>38245316Probably after 9/11, teeniebopper
Mag cutout in front gives you more leverage.
>>38245221>pinches your pinky on reloads.You're morbidly obese,
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.
>>38245221pinky out, like a gentleman. gosh some people have no manners
>>38245221I 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.
>>38245488That 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.
>>38245437i can squeeze the magwell so much it feels like it may break
>>38244923this 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
>>38245221The glock doesnt have a mag kickout which is so common on so many other guns
>>38245707Glock smiles, not quite as happy as SIG smiles.Don't worry about it too much. Barrels are parts with finite service lives.
>>38245255Fixed back in the 00s, anon. Was only the .40s in the first place.
>>38245734i’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
>>38245738It 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.
>>38245779The finish wear won't progress much after the initial wear.The barrel is still functionally perfect.
>>38244923I think nra token black had it right with the gen 3 glock vid he had
>>38245255Nah, they replaced that with a spontaneous sex change.
>>38245707Must 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.
>>38245852no shit it’s still functional i just can’t sell it for as (((much)))>>38245882jesus you stupid summer fuck could you be any more obvious. and i’ll lube my guns however much i want
>>38245828>only with *super hot* hand-loaded rounds (no factory .40 cartridge had the power to blow them out).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 1Chamber support was added slowly on the .40 models well into the late 90s if not 00s.
>>38245920Why would you sell it?
>>38245870Wow props to that lady for having gloves on and a tourniquet ready in hand before he even realized what happened. 10/10 she can have a place on my post apocalyptic raiding team.
>>38245951got a good deal and wanted to see if the grips and trigger felt better than my gen 3. I like the grips more but the trigger is somehow worse on mine. ended up keeping it. at 2000 rounds now
>>38245960I doubt the tourniquet was of any use if he got hit in the dick.
>>38245988Just apply it further down on the shaft.
>>38245922https://youtu.be/O-647zSRGmkSure pally. First result with "glock case head"
>>38245412Fucking this. He sounds like the kind of person to have complained about glock bite before too,
>>38246507Nah. 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.
The end all be all of Glocks were the RTF2s in Gen 3.
>>38245870I 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.
>>38245998>implying whiteboys have enough shaft to do that
>>38246185man DROPPED a loaded handgun, what a faggot.
>>38246626EDCing appendix means breaking the 2nd rule of firearm safety for hours everyday. It's beyond retarded.
dunno what's wrong with the Gen5sbut something is off about this one
>>38246185>case head separation>factory reman ammo reloaded who knows how many timesFirst, i hate paladins. Second, whats a G30 Kb have to do with the rate at which G23s had their chamber support changed?
>>38246662Appendix carry is considered pretty normal in 2018, I don't know if I agree there, but fucking hell, people get too complacent.
>>38246685Why? Have you shot it? Are you type type of fucking gun expert????
>>38246685Does it work like that?
>>38246685There's red shit on the trigger, that's what.
>>38246640>2018>not having at least a 6.5 inch penis C'mon, man.
>>38246734hmmm you could be onto somethinghappened to the other one too
>>38245221you cant grasp the sides because of the flared magwell
>>38246685I've actually wondered why Glock doesn't release a 17 slide with a 26 frame from factory. The barrel isn't the hard part to conceal, the grip is.
>>38246714>Appendix carry is considered pretty normal in 2018>CURRENT YEARLack of trigger discipline was considered normal a century ago. I don't give a shit about the consensus.
>>38246753I think you forgot your glockazine
>>38246786Weapons 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.
>>38246809>>38246734that red shit is everywhere god dammit
>>38246784because they wouldnt sell. theyed just sit on shelves why people would point and laugh. the only people who what that config are dedicated enough to take a hacksaw to a grip.
Anyone have an idea of when the Gen 5 42 and 43 are coming out?
>>38246868Not him but it's objectively the best of both worlds. Concealable profile + longer sight radius. Worlds better than that 19X abomination.
>>3824700319x 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 this1 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.
>>38247111So you're making the case that most people can't hold a glock 19 sized frame comfortably?
>>38247217That's not at all what he said. He said that some people have big hands that make the 19 seem small.
>>38246784do 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.>>38247003until you have to actually carry the thing.
>>38247239And 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.
>>38247301the 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 17only with an extended base plate or with a 17 mag, which defeats the purpose.
>>38247388That's what the 19x is though. It's essentially 19 sized barrel / slide on an almost 17 sized frame.With a lanyard hole.>>38247335Really? 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>the 19x isnt for ccwhow tiny are you?
>>38247405what the hell are you on the only mags that fit the 19x are 17 sized
>>38247418its one of those guns you can cc if you want but its primary purpose isnt ccw. how had is that to understand?
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 partyHow 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?
>>38247417it's retarded. it was retarded when Colt did it with their Commander model, and it's retarded now
>>38247432I guess if you like riding through the desert on a shitty FDE horse with no real target market. Thank god for the lanyard hole though.
>>38247335it is apparently for police/military and is meant for open carry. the 509 was made to the same profile for the same reason. they're both rejects from the recent army pistol program.
>>38246626It's not that you aren't tacticool, it's that you aren't intelligent.
>>38247442Yes. Thank you. G19x is dumb as fuck.>>38247449Nobody likes the 509 either.
>>38247423missed the "x" part. a short barreled 17 is still dumb tho. the only advantage is for petite women cops when they are driving around in their car handing out tickets
>>3824746819x might be dumb but its still leagues better than a 17/26
>>38247488they're the same gun
>>38247493what the fuck? how are polar opposites the exact same gun.
>>38247503They're the same, glock just made them look a little different then sold it to retards like you who buy into their bullshit that its some amazing new thing. They've been doing the same bullshit for 30 years and they haven't made anything new or noteworthy
>>38247488I never said 17 / 26 was a good idea. What IS a good idea is a 17 / 19.
>>38247503when abortions go wrong .jpg
>>38244923If 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.
>>38247559Better than the three?
>>38245509The 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 wantDo 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.
>>38247580Admittedly, 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.
>>38244923Glock 46 when?
>>38245221I have the new 19. If the cutout bothers you, you are either:a) fat to the point of incompatibility with lifeb) handlet whose pink doesn't fully wrap around the gripI 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.
>>38245707Mine looked a bit better than that after 1k rounds, can confirm.
>>38247559Wrong. 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 sights3. Cutout magwell should be on the sides, but honestly after roughly 2.5k rounds, it has never bothered me being on the front4. Trigger is improved, but still stacks a little more than my VP95. Grip angle is fine, just further reduce the GlockhumpI prefer it to my Gen3, pic related.
>>38247435How could disassembling a glock be any easier?
>>38247762>there is nothing wrong with this compact handgun if you use extended mags that completly defeat the entire pointk
>>38248072I 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.
>>38246749The 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.
>>38245882this. 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.
>>38247762>I mostly shoot HK, which makes superior pistolslock-up on my USP got sloppy as shit after probably 10k rounds. I could push on the barrel from the top of the ejection port and it would almost disengage. still sold it for what I paid for it. guy who bought it didn't give a single fuck, he was just happy to now be an HK owner. brand whores are stupid
>>38248051those tabs are a bitch sometimes ngl... the SW MP style lever is easier to manipulate esp if the gun is really full of crap, like a mud test
>>38248350That's what lube is for
>>38248236>Nor did I reference its capacity in any way.>there is literally nothing wrong with this G19 in the configuration in which I shoot it.>shows the configuration in which he shoots itDon't you have glue to eat or something?
>>38244923I'm glad I bought a gen 3 glock 19Never selling it.
>>38248350it really isn't. just muzzle press into something softer than the barrel and it's easy. if you're that much of a girl, they sell an extended plate for 5-10 bucks
>>38244923How does /k feel about polymer80 glock kits? Is it really worth the trouble just to have an unregistered gun? And do they perform as well as the originals?
>>38248442Stupid easy to assemble and it's nice to have all the parts shipped to your front door.
>>38248442meh, no and no. if you want a "glock" and thats the only way to get one fine. or you want to do it to do it. however its never the only way to get one. it might be the easiest way for some 18 year old with no connections. buying a real glock is cheaper. buying from private sale or illegally is easier and off the record.
>>38248442>unregistered gunwhat horrible state do you live in that you have to register your guns? therer's no federal gun registration and transfers are only on record for something like 30 days
>>38248504>he thinks 4473s aren't soft registrationOh sweet child
>>38245509>>38245734Glock smiles are brass marks, friendo>>38245920Literally no one would count that against a gun's value unless they are nugunz>>38246730They standardized locking blocks/barrels>>38246784No one would buy it, so many people are uncomfortable shooting without their pinky on the frame that it would not move off shelves>>38247003Not to the average consumer
>>382485394473 isn't proof of current ownership. tracking custody is where registration comes into play. I don't have to say a god damn thing about a firearm I may or may not still own. proof I originally purchased something isn't proof of shit other than I was the original purchaser.
>>38248762you're technically right, but look up what happened to people who bought streetsweeper shotguns after the atf declared them destructive devices. that will forever make me leery of the 4473.
>>38248762Hence why I said soft. Most original buyers are also current owners.
>>38245707it's just a coating bro. I have a Gold Cup from the 70s with a barrel that was never coated with anything. it's still fine. throwing a shit ton of grease at something to keep your barrel's coating from rubbing off is retarded. you get that the inside of your barrel doesn't have a coating right now either, right?
>>38248854if it can't be used as evidence of ownership in a court of law then it isn't "soft", it's nothing.
>>38248882That's not going to be its use..
>>38247595You have made a false assertion.Polygonal rifling =/= no increase in velocity.
>>38248924oh ffs, what is it then? nation wide door to door confiscation warrants for guns they can't prove anyone still owns? you're insane
>>38248882my sweet summer child
>>38248971with a 4" barrel? fuck no
>>38249002and you're a paranoid autist. that has devolved to ad hominem when he got BFTO'd
>>38248882Literally hilarious.>>38248987>be year 2032>pass semi auto firearm ban/buyback>have multiple 4473s under your name>get visit from ATF>do anything the gov doesn't like>"your honor, these multiple 4473s show that this man owned these firearms previously, and this confidential informant totally says that he totally showed them to him just last week"Im sure they're creating a de facto registry of firearms owners for entirely beneficent reasons.
>>38245920I 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.
>>38245367I legitimately laughed at that. Sitting on the shitter, in a public restroom, laughing hysterically..... I don't know why either.
>>38249155it 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. I literally don't even have to tell them I don't own it anymore or that I lost it in a boating accident, as 4473 isn't proof I currently own shit. they can fuck right off, and so can you
>>38249331>when you tell the police you don't have something that's now illegal, they just leave!
>>38249331>kill somebody>body sits in the forest for a week before it's found>"You can't use that, its inadmissible, there's no chain of custody!"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.
>>38249365they have to prove I own it first. 4473 doesn't do that.>>38249420>game wardens can literally search your housethat'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 confiscationso 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.
>>3824831410k 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?
>>38249162>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
>>38249537Yeah, 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.
>>38247658I fucking love Grand Powers
>>38246662>literally every carry points the barrel at you
>>38249845Theyed 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.
>>38244923I 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.
>>38245509>Notice the match crown and traditional rifling.>traditional riflingSTOP. FUCKING STOP. IT STILL HAS POLYGONAL RIFLING, JUST A DIFFERENT KIND. STOP SPREADING BULLSHIT.
>>38250248W E WThanks dude.
>>3824981310k 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.
>>38250860how was the accuracy?
>>38245707This. 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 ~1,000Otherwise its bretty gud
>>38250652Prove it ass boy.
>>38249845if you sell it in AZ, you might run into a headache if that gun ever makes it back into CA.>>38250248shipping 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.
>>38250954Learn to read you fucking nigger.https://eu.glock.com/en/products/pistols/G34_Gen5_MOS>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
>>38250896of 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
>>38250906The 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.
>>38250982This 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.
>>38251179cite 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.
>>38251232No, 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.
>>38245221Its not a problem on the G17
>>38251016All shapes are polygons fuckhead, that doesn't mean anything.
>>38245509Polygonal 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 lawyou 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.
