    Greetings fellow Glockers. Went into GT Distributors today to buy a Blue Label Gen 4 G17 in Jacksonville, Florida. Sales associate notified me that I could put a Gen 5 On pre-order.... so I did! I'll let you guys know when I get it and will post pics! They said I would be able to pick it up early September at the latest.

    Cool. So you're going to be a beta tester?

    I guess so! You probably wouldn't get any legitimate or worthy testing out of me though as I can't afford to put 2000 rounds in one session to validate its reliability. I can do 500? Lol

    500 is enough for most people. Heck, 250 and you can do a YouTube channel

    Lol! I'm in the military, I like leaning towards being a quiet professional. I wouldn't feel comfortable with that, but I will give an honest review here on GT. I'll leave the videos to people like Hicock45 or NutnFancy! Thanks for the kind reply though good sir.

    This is true, I have read where a Glock will eject right in your face.

    I just heard of the Gen 5 a few weeks ago while I was attending a shotgun/rifle instructor school. The hosting agency was T&E'ing them as a potential new duty pistol. They had good things to say about it, but couldn't go into much detail because of an agreement with Glock.

    No the FBI was the beta tester. The only difference in the M and Gen 5 is the stamping on the slide.

    When you actually get the gun, be sure and tell us whether or not it has the dreaded finger grooves.
