I think the width measurements on the website include the controls. ??
That is true so the "body" of the Gen 4 20 is wider that the Gen 5 17, that's why I mention the large LW TimberWolf frame which measures about half way between the 17 and 20. The longer slide doesn't make it harder to conceal but the frame width and weight do. I would much rather carry 10mm rather than .40, but my 10mm double stack 1911 weighs 56 Oz. loaded. I sometimes carry it in the winter, and it conceals just fine, but it requires HD suspenders to hold up my Kore belt.
Evening 58Sniper, at the time I didn't think about it, but I hope it was obvious my "Thank you" was sincere. Did not mean for it to come across snarky if it did with my posting screen shot of UPC. Lipsey's also has the 23 down one round "12+1", I am really curious now why? G22 capacity is same, along with all Gen 5 models released so far, with possible exception of the Border Patrol G26 press release stating increase of 1 "11+1".
Yeah I forgot that's how they roll.
Glock's new marketing platform / inspiration
Ill probably get a 23. It'd be my only .40 but with this 9mm fiasco we've had I'd like to have a standby I could use.
I'll pass on all Gen5, they just don't trip my trigger.
I emailed and they said they are tooled for gen3/4/5 on the .40 cal. So does this mean the holsters will be a little loose on gen 3/4?
Guess once the gun comes out and someone orders their holster, we will finally know.
Yes, this is going to require new holsters. Not fun.
One thing I really like about .40 is you can shoot 357 Sig with just a barrel swap and 9mm with a conversion barrel and 9mm mags, opens up your ammo options quite a bit.
I love my G45 and use that slide on my 19 and 26 frames. Gen 5 for me was important because:
I'm left handed and really like the Ambi. slide release
I hate the finger groves, they are under my fingers on my Gen 4 23 & 27
I like the front serrations on my G45
The Hogue Handall is set for my grip, without the Handall and rubberized cover underneath recoil was painfull.
Sent my Gen 4 23 frame to Lane at Cold Bore Custom in Katy, TX. He's a masterful Plastic Surgeon, he's doing a Humpectomy, trigger guard undercut, trigger guard memory cut and textured frame flats.
I never dreamed removing the humps could look this good.
I was just checking out my Gen 4 23 in my Vedder LightTuck and when you pull the gun back out of retention (1/2") there is quite a bit of slop around the nose of the slide. It may just be a matter of just loosening the retention to widen the interior.
For new product they could add 1mm inside and they would fit all Gens.
I like new holsters, and I like to try different brands. So not a prob for me.
G.39 Gap M
My Gap guns work fine in my 20/30 holsters ,just a fuzz loose
Kinda like buying a generic holster to a custom specific model one
Hang on fellas those 40's are as close to a Gap model as you can get..
The Glock .45 GAP, and the Glock 10mm handguns have the same slide width. The Gen5 40S&W will have a slide width 1mm thinner that the Glock .45 GAP, and 2mm thicker that the Gen4 40S&W.
Here is a photo of a Gen5 40S&W slide compared to a Gen4 40S&W slide
OK, so does the slide actually overhang the frame?
Looking at the area around the inspection plate, it's obviously bigger, then I looked at the rails.
As they say, 'a picture is worth a thousand words'. To me, that slide really does look like a 'porker', so to speak. I see a lot of the older Gen 3 & Gen. 4's being snapped up once people as handle the Gen. 5's ? In fact, slide width is the only complaint I have pertaining to my beloved .45 GAP's. I guess I should wait to actually handle one of the 'Fat 5 .40's' prior to making an assessment, but the above photo sure doesn't look too promising ?
OK, I got out my calipers and my G45 frame measures 1.16" total width across below the front and rear rails, so at 1.08" the slide is not wider than the frame, but I don't envision it sliding into my Vedder LightTuck without an application of heat.
I'm actually thinking of using my GSSF coupon on a Gen 5 22, which would require a new holster anyway.
It will not overhang the slide as much as the Glock .45GAP.
