    Been seeing a few Gen5 40s show up on Gunbroker, could be wrong but it seems like the slide on the .40 is a bit thicker...can anyone verify?

    I was looking at these photos.. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/881943269

    There's like 5 threads on this. Yes the slide is thicker. Yes it's dumb. No I will not buy one.

    It's not dumb, if they're doing it so that they can make the Gen 5 G20 10mm that much easier. Time will tell

    It's not that bad. I don't mind that it is a little wider than the dust cover but it's still not as wide as the frame. I held one a few days ago (free to hold - $665 to buy - eff that) and the slide being wider was a blip on my radar.

    Weird, I know several people that already tested and bought both the 22 and 23 since they were softer shooting than their older 22/23s.
    The guns feel good in the hand; if you aren’t already stocked up on older gen guns and were buying your first one, why not buy this one?
