    Right. That was my point. Whether single or dual, Glock uses captured springs which makes life equally easy either way.

    That's in contrast to other dual spring set ups with loose parts like the picture I posted (a Bersa, I think) or in my old S&W 4513TSW which was similar.

    Maybe I'll just get an ATI 45gap to 40 conversion barrel for my 37. Fat slide, but single recoil spring, 3rd pin and single sided slide stop.

    As a guy who has overseen 2 weapon conversions for my department; I agree! Not sure but if the new 40's don't fit holsters for the Gen 3/Gen 4 it's a recipe for disaster.

    Most here own multiple guns in different calibers but have that certain one they trust with their lives. I don't get into caliber wars because I don't care. I'll take a 38, 357, 9mm, 40, 45. All that matters is when I yank it goes bang and I do my part in the equation.

    When we went from Gen 3 to 4 40's I was lucky (I *****ed like a little girl) and was able to keep my issued weapon personally. Haven't shot it in many years. It only has 3k round down the tube. I'm glad to see the Gen 5's in 40 are coming. IDK if I will get a 22 or a 23 G5 but I will get one of em. I'm leaning 22 MOS!!

    1) Sarcasm

    2) How do you ride the slide stop with your trigger finger?

    Thanks for the answer.

    I don't compete so the absolutely rare instance I'd need to replace the whole assembly would be a non issue. But for a competitor, especially running lighter loads that does makes sense.

    I'd assume Lone Wolf or someone will make an adapter like they have for the Gen 4s, if the current ones don't work though.

    As PM stated the infor sheets have been out there for a while. I first saw the specs when the Brazilians were testing them.

    What I am wondering since the Gen5 40S&W will have a slide 2mm wider than the Gen4, will they both use the same rear iron sights, or will the Gen5 have its own wider sights.

    probably the same as the other Gen 5s. Height regulation may be different but the Gen3 and 4 g21/20 used the same width sights as other models. The height is the only difference in them.

    They have been tested for several years in Brazil.

    I missed it if someone mentioned it already. Glock intended, at least initially for the 45gaps to have a 1.00” slide. The prototypes and the ones photographed for magazines had the same thin slide. I would have bought a 45gap if it had not been for the top heavy slide.

    I thought they looked beveled at the bottom. Really Glock? So a Gen 5 .40 needs a G37/20/21 holster now? This is getting ridiculous. Plus those ugly front serrations. No thanks.

    Those front serrations are hideous. But if people want them, then Glock will deliver.
    It may just be a fad that will disappear in the next couple of years. We’ll see.

    My first Glock was a G45 and I love it, one of the reasons I never considered Glocks before Gen 5 was the lack of ambidextrous controls. I have to admit that since I've transitioned to my G23 for primary EDC I've gotten used to a higher hold, placing both thumbs up right below the rails. So for that, being LH is at last, an advantage.

    When the Gen 5 comes out i'll have to give it some serious thought before making a change. I think it would take a G45 format .40 to make me hit the BUY button.

    In the mean time I'm thinking about buying a G23 upper for my G27 frame.
