    One thing that hasn't been mentioned is will the gen 5 frames interchange like gen 4:
    26/27/33
    19/23/32
    17/22/31

    Or if indeed Glock is reinforcing the 40 frames will they not be compatible.

    If so, maybe the 40/357 guns would be cloned for a simple barrel swap like before.

    I will buy a 23 but not until they issue one without the forward slide serrations. Don't need them!!!

    You tried to overhand a Gen 5 finished gun that's at all wet? Slick as snot! Need all the serrations you can jam on there.

    Now, if it had a nice tacky finish like the 19X, I'd agree.

    I agree 100%. But I think all Gen 5 Glocks being offered now will have those front serrations.
    A black nPVD finish making the slide more tacky would be a great option. I love the finish on the 19X

    Wait, what? can't you swap out the factory dual recoil spring for a stainless steel guide rod and a Wolf spring who's weight suits your needs? We're talking $50 ?!

    How does the ambi slide stop affect anything?

    Hopefully the G33 OEM barrel will drop in.

    Yes, you can replace the dual recoil spring with a single spring guide rod and adapter. Did that on my 41. My comment was about the CONTINUATION of the unnecessary dual guide rod in the new models. The ambi slide stop affects left handers like a left side slide stop affects right handers. Thumbs can get into it. I don’t have that issue with gen3 and gen4. The ambi slide stop is in my way.

    Picked up a 29 a couple of months ago and recently a Gen 4 35, I am anticipating a 23.5 to go along with them. Would be nice not to have to wait until October or November, but I guess it gives me more time to save and stock up on ammo.

    I don't understand the hate for the dual recoil spring. What's the harm?

    At least it's captured unlike the pistols that have a bunch of loose parts to go flying across the room:

    You are absolutely right, I watch YouTube videos of all the hot shot shooters with their thumbs grazing the slide as it cycles...

    Something I do with my 10mm 1911 and Gen 4 Glocks, but can't with my Gen 5 Glocks, because I am left handed.

    Someone should market an extended slide release for left or right side only.

    And as far as the captured dual springs on Gen 4&5, I much prefer that than using a paper clip to take down my bull barrel 1911.

    Riding the slide stop causes often causes reliability issues. Change my mind.

    I would love to get a gen 5 23 to go with my Gen 3 23. Is there an official press release from Glock because I couldnt find anything on their website.

    Yes and no. The design took an existing 9mm frame and morphed it to fire a 40 S&W whereas other designs, such as the HK USP(c) were designed around the 40 S&W out of the gate. And while Glock has had great success with the 40 S&W, it hasn't seen the same longevity of some of the other calibers. The second largest PD in the county I worked for used Glock in 22/23 and eventually started having breakage issues. I would think in Gen 3 but it may have been Gen 4. But they had enough of an issue that it was a known issue to other agency armorers. Not saying every pistol in the agency. But enough. To be fair, some segments of L.E. shoot more often than private citizens and often in harsher conditions. So this isn't to suggest that a G22/23 isn't capable of higher round counts, but there have been issues with some high round count Glocks in 40 S&W.

    Time will be the primary tale of the tape on the 40 S&W in Gen 5 but I'll go out on a limb and suggest that they will be inherently stronger overall than previous generations.

    I may still get a G23 when they come out and then add a 9mm conversion and 357sig barrel but have to admit, the HK USPc that I did this with has dimmed that plan quite a bit.

    You have to replace it. I can change the spring on a gen3 plastic guide rod easily. I’ve got a 13 lb ISMI spring captured on a stock guide rod in my 35 and 19 for competition. For just the cost of the spring.

    I don’t need it in the first place. If it wasn’t there, I wouldn’t have to cut it off. Not to mention the notch and fence left on the right side of the frame.
