Saw this yesterday.
Nice!, but no love for the .40!
Glock please bring the G21 Gen5 ASAP.
Once again, sign me up for a gen 5 G23.
These could prove interesting,
Nice...I see a new Gen 5 23 in my future.
Looks like they’re repurposing all those 45 GAP slide blanks.
Interesting. Two pin receivers.
I'll take a G22 please.
Please, please, please let them run well with a WML. I'd be all over one if they do !
I might have to pick up a Gen 5 23.
Yup which means holster fitment hell for LE guys. The new 40's will require a completely new holster as far as Safariland duty gear.
Holsters with some give may be fine.
I'm sure some folks will get a serious case of heartburn over that, but it isn't a big deal. The 3rd pin was added originally, because Glock THOUGHT the 40 caliber needed the reinforcement. They had no empirical data at the time to validate it's need.
Now years later after how many thousands upon of thousands of rounds through 40 caliber Glocks, they have determined, it wasn't really necessary. What's old is new again....
I’d rather have a 3rd pin instead of a fat slide.
Well. This means more police surplus Gen4’s coming when the gen5 hits.
You’re saying the 40’s will not have the same dimensions as the 9mm’s?
If so, that’s monumentally stupid. One of the biggest selling points for Glock is the vast accessories and not having to buy multiples, for each individual weapon.
I'd like a 23X please.
My understanding is that the 40 slides are thicker than the 9s. Don’t know if they are the same thickness as the GAPs.
The fat slide was done to slow and control the recoil impulse, it had nothing to do with the deletion of the third pin. The slide is actually heavier, which slows slide travel. In theory it will reduce felt recoil, and aid in less wear on the pistol.
I’m all about a fat slide G22. Part of what makes the G37 such a joy is the fat slide. Finally a Glock actually built around the cartridge!
The slide appears to be somewhere between the width of the 17 and 37, based off the radius on the lower edge.
Almost, but not quite. The New Gen5 40 caliber slides are 1.08 inches in width. The GAP slide were 1.13 inches. The current 9mm Glock slides are 1.00 inches.
