    Anyone think the "marksman" barrel will be offered as an OEM replacement for Gen3/4?

    I can definitely tell you the barrel is very accurate, much more than my Gen 2 and 3 for sure. I'm tempted to get rid of my old glocks for new ones and did I mention the trigger?

    The new Gen 5 barrels show a significant increase in accuracy over my 3-4 Gens

    You're not kidding and I shoot all kinds of guns and my Sig 320 is super accurate so now this Gen 5 will have a shoot out with the Sig.

    At 25 yards I shoot my Sig P320 Pro Compact about the same as my G45. Being old and disabled my groups with all pistols are much larger now that I am in my mid seventies.

    Yes, the Gen 5 has the marksman barrel and the Gen 5 is my best shooting Glock!

    But in the beginning, folks were saying the GMB wasn't any more accurate than previous generations.

    I never got that memo, cause all my Gen 5 are more accurate than previous generations.

    On a side note, I have a Vickers G43, that has the GMB and it is more accurate than my standard G43. The only difference between them that could make a difference in accuracy is the barrel.
