    Glocks don't have lifetime warranties. Plus I don't want my problems cropping up at the worst times.

    2 mm wider slide? That's only 1mm narrower than their wide .45s. Hard pass. Holster makers will be happy though.

    Why not just add a 3rd pin for these? Doesn't seem like it would be that big a deal would it?
    Locking blocks are already cut for it aren't they?

    I know Glock warranted an E series LEA Swat Team Glock with approximately 100,000 rounds downrange when the left rear frame rail broke and the pistol still worked.

    the gen5 locking block does have a cut out for one, but if you compare the locking blocks, the gen5 one is already beefier.

    I don't know if there ever was a 40 caliber "23x" submission.

    Are we putting the cart in front of the horse? Do we know that the slide is 2mm wider?

    no, he's saying the slide widths of the 37/38 are fatter than 17/19.

    we're all guessing that's the widths of the gen5 non-9MM slides based on the Brazilian gen5 22s.

    Look at the 21 and 41. Both 45acp. But the 41 has a slimmer slide than the 21. Glock should be able to somehow keep the slide width the same with the beefier locking block. I'd really hate to have to buy new holsters.

    A Good Source said the new Glock .40 pistols will have the wider slide like the Brazilian Glocks.

    Well that settles it. No gen5 23s for me. Dual gen4 32s will be my blue label purchases this year on my birthday.

    Really wanted ambi guns. Maybe I'll get two HK VP40s and 357 barrels.

    I would buy new gen 5 models of 357 sig and 40S&W. But if it is the wide slide models. Id have to think real hard about it. Maybe not buy any.

    I got no problem with a slightly wider slide, but understand guys invested in bucks up holsters staying out.

    I can deal with a slightly beefed up .40 GLOCK. They probably shoulda done that from the start instead of jamming it into a 9mm sized gun. Now maybe they’ll be reliable with WML’s, which the Gen 3’s and 4’s are definitely not !!

    No, but I know for a fact that they have replaced parts including frames for free in guns well past the factory warranty for issues that where not the guns fault.

    The only Glock I would be interested in is the rotary barrel version they sold to the Germans. When do we get that?
