    You'll be an old man before version 5 comes around.

    It'll be all ceramic, and able to slip through metal detectors unnoticed.





    Also, they'll introduce .22LR models, single-stack models, a carbine, a 1911, and a shotgun, all while putting rails on the subcompacts.


    Did I leave anything out?

    I don't expect a "Gen 5" for at least 10 years. If the company is still even around at that point.

    It would look like a 4th gen and work like a 3rd gen.

    all GEN5s will also come with .22LR barrels, slides & magazines since in 10 years the price of centerfired ammo will either be through the roof or require registration (and thus be limited to so many per year per person).

    I would expect the next generation to be much more of an engineering reliability and efficiency (read: making the parts cheaper, and still getting back to gen 2 reliability) exercise rather than an ergonomic or performance exercise, ie making the extractor and ejection more reliable, yet MIM friendly, detail changes to feed ramps and case support, and I wouldn't be surprised at some point to see a move to all polymer magazines and even a few polymer springs here and there. It's where industrial engineering may head in the foreseeable future.

    I am hoping they don't lessen the quality with cheaper parts..

    Gen 4 is the sole result of the patents expiring and Glock 40 being police weapon of choice.All of the mods centered on ergonomics and the engineering the forty up a bit.

    the rest of the line just made sense dollar wise.

    Expect new calibers. Possibly new materiels.

    No, I was thinking more one-piece like Steyr, Caracal, or even (dare I say?) Sig P250... It would eliminate frame flex problems and allow the polymer portion to be replaced at will as the chassis would be designated as the gun.
