    No front strap cutout (my personal favorite new feature), front serrations (nice to have with the slick surface coating), retains the mag well, and MOS, along with all the rest of the Gen 5 features.

    I'm seeing one of these in my near future.

    I'm kinda indifferent about the MOS as I don't have an RMR yet, but I look at it like this. I don't have to put an RMR on it if I don't want to, but it's there if I ever want to which is kind of nice.

    This might be the only way to get a normal black Gen5 19 with no center frame mag cut and front serrations...

    I would like to own one. I don’t have optics now but would like the option. What concerns me though is how far back on the slide the rear sight cut is. Seems like most sights would hang off the back of the slide.

    This excites me far more than the black 19x.

    From a logistical perspective, it would be easier for GLOCK to make one gen 5 frame for the G19, instead of two. Maybe they will use up the old style with the hated half moon cutout, and then start using the new style MOS frame?

    I'd take the plunge but the front serrations ruin it.

    This is exactly what I'm hoping for.

    This will be my next Glock and most likely my last for a long while...

    I use G26 sights on a G19 which brings sights further back (offset like a Novak) to increase sight radius.

    I am willing to bet money thats exactly what they are doing - the 17 and 19 frame will be updated with no half moon, there is no way they would make a separate frame for the MOS Gen5's going forward, its not cost effective at all - they have not really advertised the frame update deleting the half moon as a "feature", similar to when they updated the slide beveling on the Gen5 pistols, because its really just a rolling update after listening to customer feedback.

    You WILL see the Gen5 19 and 17 for quite some time with the half moon in shops, until the newest production starts rolling in - I will give it a bit to confirm, and it may be something as easy as asking your shop or distributor how "fresh" the pistols are, I think on the G45's I was seeing a serial number in the BHH prefix range, so I would look for something along those lines.

    Even if they keep the front serrations on the MOS/G45 models only, deleting the half moon is the biggest deal to me, my pinky tip rides right on the cutout as I don't have large hands and is soooo annoying - I'm going to get a G45 first, and hopefully in a few months when my GSSF renews, I can finally get a Gen5 19 that has no half moon.

    I'd take the plunge if it wasn't MOS. Milled > MOS, all day.

    Hmmm. Since I already have a 17 & 19 gen 3 maybe I 'll take a look at both of these. Still though I love my gen 3's.

    LOL my first ever handgun is a Glock 19 that I will never get rid of and my other 2 Glocks are a G21 gen 4 and a G19X...

    I think this one will round it out nicely...

    but never say never lol
