It’s different. I actually prefer the Gen 4 coating. The new one is slicker when wet.
Any closer to the Gen 3 coating? That's my favorite so far.
They are nice! I keep wanting to try a 45 or 17 for competition but all the cool kids say that the 34 will shoot softer. I added a few little things and mines finally where I like it.
I’m not an authority on Glock coatings. The only frying pan finish I can identify is on my frying pans so take this for what it’s worth.
I have a 23.3 that is perfect. It’s been holstered in bad holsters, sweated on, bled on, drawn thousands of times from Kydex. It still looks new other than a slight thinning of the finish. My 27.3 has had a similar life but it is pitted from rust. I let red specs stay on it too long and pitting was the result. It is slicker than the G23 so I’m guessing it is a different finish.
My Gen 4’s seem to look and feel more like the 23.3 which is my favorite finish.
My Gen 5’s have a more paint like, slick finish than either the Gen 3 or 4’s that I have. I don’t mind the Gen 5 coating but there is a small bare spot on my main pistol. I’m not sure if it came from holstering or dragging it across a dirty barrel, table top, or hitting a barricade at a match.
I've never met a Glock I didn't like.... Big smiles at the range!
Just picked up a G19 Gen 5 GNS - wow. Perfect ! - no cutout - front serrations - $599 - my new everyday too fun tool gun. Thx Glock for the running changes that made this just what I wanted. ✔️^-^
Wow one jam and gun goes bye bye?
I traded in a new car once with a bad tire.....
that’s sort of the same, isn’t it?
I really like my Gen 5 17, it’s very accurate for me and pleasant to shoot.
The two Gen 4 19s I had were great but as a lefty the Gen 5 19 FS non-MOS with the ambi slide release is the perfect Glock for me. I ordered a set of Night Fission sights for it and may get it laser stippled for a bit more traction. Still on the hunt for an OEM threaded barrel...
In my opinion, Glock peaked as a defensive pistol with the frying pan finish Gen 3 9mm pistols and it’s been downhill since... although I recall that people complained at the time that the frying pan finish was too slick.
I’ve never been a Gen5 guy, largely due to the ambi slide-stop.
All dark colored pistols look and feel black to me.
I can't ascertain the subtle variances in-between as I blast them downrange.
Thanks for sharing that letter from Glock.
Do you know what year that statement was written? The reason I ask... they might have planned on stopping production of Gen4 pistols in a certain year, but continue to produce them for longer than originally planned. (Does that make sense?)
Anyway, because the Gen4 G26 is my all time favorite carry gun.... I'll be buying another one before they become "scarce"
This year. Someone from Glock also told me that they'll continue to make them to honor existing contracts for LE agencies and the military. Just won't be available to the public anymore.
Really? Lol Easily remedied and doesn't affect function of the pistol
That's highly interesting that Glock is actually acknowledging they plan to use other calibers in the Gen5 configuration. I wonder when, and what calibers, that will be occurring.
An additional lever I don’t even use when I hardly use the R one, hard pass for me.
I’ll stick with my Gen2-4s before spending $600 and performing surgery on it.
Yep - just take a Dremel and cut it...
