    As stated earlier, I got out to shoot my Gen 5 G17. It was terrible. Absoluhty pitiful. I compared it right next to my Gen 4 G17, same ammo, same box from Blazer Brass and Remington. With both, the result was the same. Right on top of the target was fine. Once I was out at 15 foot, I could not hit the target at all, what so ever. With the Gen 5, they would hit the dirt most of the time before getting there. With the Gen 4, every round hit the circles I was shooting for.

    No, I am not trying to sell here, but this one is not a keeper, let's put it that way.

    Wow. Remind me to never say anything like, “I don’t like this gun, it doesn’t shoot well... anyone wanna buy it?” On this site. If you do, you get accused of fraud, and dishonesty, and everything else!

    I don't disbelieve you, but was it 15 ft as stated here or 15 yds as stated in the other thread?

    Obviously something wrong with the 5 or we’re being played.

    I have two Gen 5's, the 19 and 17, both guns are more accurate than any of my Gen 4's if you have a real problem here send your gun to Glock, because you're the only one I have heard having an accuracy problem with a Gen 5, my Gen 4's are great , but my 5's are over the top...

    No, it was five yards. I measured it all out. Using one of those tape measures. It's really cool. It measures in one inch increments.

    How is it possible to hit the dirt shooting at 5 yds?

    What size groups at 5 yards? Even if the accuracy was lousy, you should be able to put up some 3" or 4" groups if you're a half decent shot.

    Yes. Five yards. They would even hit paper. They were all over the place. Some in the dirt. Some off to one side or the other. I have to think it has something to do with the new barrel style.

    Is the barrel visibly curved?

    I think I could hit the target pretty easy at 5 yards hip shooting. Not being a smartass or anything but something is wrong with your gun if it won't hit that close. I've shot an old Raven 25acp that is better than that.

    I know there had been an issue with people getting different height sights. Some are getting 6.1mm and some are getting 6.5mm. What height do you have?
    I don’t know if that would make a difference at 5 yards or not however...

    Have you let someone else shoot it? Is barrel over bored? Are the sights walking?
