    Am I wrong? Gen 5 Glocks with the front serrations are down right ugly. I have G19s Gen 3 and 4 but I'd never have one of these ugly pistols. Think I may look at M&Ps next.

    I don’t think they are ugly. I like them. But I like all Glocks.

    I don't know, adds a certain symmetry.

    I can take it or leave it. Don't use them anyways.

    I'm waiting for a Gen5 26 (blue label) from my dealer and I specifically told him I want the front serrations. Any Glock I may get in the future has to be Gen5 or later, with FS and if possible MOS.

    What Glock isn’t ugly? Part of their charm.

    I love the simplicity, it's a pistol and not intended to be pretty just functional. G170037.jpg

    I don't see why it's a big deal.

    I like the front serrations. And I like the lack of the grip cutout. Now when they make it the 23 in gen 5 with the same features...

    I agree. I think it's PRETTY simple and PRETTY functional.

    They are ugly! Lazy design remove the sights and it looks the same on both ends.

    So you have to have a pretty handgun?
    If you want pretty get a Colt 1851 with a brass trigger guard and walnut grips. Otherwise get a CZ and enjoy the ergonomics too.

    No one ever cared if a screwdriver, or lug wrench, or drain snake, was good looking. Only that they worked when needed, and didn't break.

    Guns won't help you pick up any girls, only gets attention from other men.

    So if you are going for looks, and bling, have at it.

    That's like saying Estelle Getty was uglier than Bea Arthur.

    Don’t care how ugly they are. Other than customs, there ain’t nothing I’d rather have in my hand during crunch time.

    Many like you that do not have a Gen 5 Glock complain about them but very few that actually own one complains.

    Wish the 43X didn't have front serrations
