Was out & about & finally got a chance to fondle a Gen 5 (I know I'm what, like 3 years late to the party?) The grip just does nothing for me.
My 19.3 just has the right "shape" (never thought I'd ever describe a Glock as having a shape )
My only other exp with newer Glocks was a 19.4 (bought it when they first came out) and it felt good in the hand, but it's the only Glock I've ever had a jam with. That one went bye-bye since it was gonna be a carry gun-and I've never before & never since had a problem with ANY Glock. Looks like it's all .3's for me!
Didn't figure I'd be a crotchety old man already at 45 years old...
Personally, I love the Glock grip but could not come to terms with the finger grooves. I like my fingers tight together and the grooves just didn't fit. Painstakingly, my Gen 4's are flat, now, on the front straps and are adorned with granulated tape, not that sissy kid stuff. If I were to own a Gen 5, it would have to have the granulate on the front and rear straps...the finger grooves not being there would be a definite plus.
