Is there any difference between the gen 5 guns sold to the public and the "M" pistols sold to the FBI?
Thanks, Sam

Sights: Ameriglo GL 5517(model number was changed was previously GL-846)vs Bold, OEM plastic or standard Glock night sights, some police departments opted for standard Glock night sights on their M series issued pistols.
Trigger Bar/ Connector is nDLC coated vs plain steel on Gen5, connector is a nDLC coated dot connector, nDLC coated trigger is marked 33588.
Markings: Slide marked M, Barrel marked M or 5M on hood.
Extended Ambidextrous slide stop lever PN 33797 (19M) and extended .075 magazine catch PN 8794 standard option on both.
There are both Austrian and USA variants of both.
M pistols can be found in Black, BFG and Tan.
New Gen5 pistols have a beveled nose to match slide. Have not seen any M pistols with this change.
All other parts are identical to Gen5 pistols.

I like the good ol extended slidestop lever as a diagnostic tool. If it doesn’t jam the slide open after every single shot, you’re not gripping high enough with your support hand!
Had to remove my factory extended stop off of my Glock 35 for that exact reason....; traded a guy who wanted an extended one. :)

AFAIK, the ejector that was origjnally used in M and Gen5 models was the Gen4 30274 ejector (part of TMH 33854). But now it appears that recently-made Gen5 and G19X pistols use the new 47021 ejector (part of TMH 47208).

I wonder if the inertia of government agency procurement contracts will make upgrades like the ejector and the beveled frame less likely to quickly appear on M models.

The 47201 ejector is not approved for use on the G17, G19 Gen5 yet. It is only on the 34 MOS, 26 Gen5, and the 19X. 30274 is still used on the 17, 19 Gen5 pistols.
That's what FRM-72-26 shows for parts applicability, yet there is no technical reason that a 47208 TMH with 47021 ejector would not also be applicable for M and Gen5 G17/G19 pistols. It would be bizarre if a Gen5 G19 and a G19X required different TMHs.

It appears to me that the FRM-72-26 current specification of two different Gen5 TMHs simply reflects Glock's transition from TMH/E 33854/30274 for the FIRST M/Gen5 models to TMH/E 47208/47021 for ALL Gen5 models.

There are doubtless many Gen5 G17 and G19 pistols brand new in Glock dealer inventory everywhere with the original TMH/E, while no doubt all Gen5 G19X/G26/G34 pistols in dealer inventory have the new TMH/E. I'd be willing to bet that Gen5 G17/G19 pistols leaving the factory right now use TMH/E 47208/47021, regardless of what FRM-72-26 says. :)

The G17 I bought last week has the old 30274 and matched/beveled dust cover. The dealer said it had just been delivered the day I bought it and they have a pretty decent throughput.

Any idea why they changed the ejector? What's the functional difference?

I bought mine last week, has the beveled frame to match the beveled slide and a 30274 ejector, 250 rounds so far and no problems.

You have just confused the entire discussion.

Ejector 47021 in TMH 47208 is the NEW ejector.

Ejector 30274 in TMH 33854 is the OLD ejector.
Nope. 30274 ejector, beveled frame, BGMD prefix, delivered and purchased 13FEB2018.
So what you wrote in post #15 stating that part 47208 (TMH with 47021 ejector) was present in your new Gen5 G17 is incorrect.
