So I finally got my hands on the new gen 5 19 and 17 today. I have all gen three glocks so I was worried about how the lack of finger grooves would feel. To my surprise I actually like the 19.5 better but not the 17.5. The 17 feels huge to me without finger grooves. My edc is a 17.3. Also the half moon cutout at the bottom of the grip is not an issue to me. My fingers don’t reach it on the 19.5. Anyone have similar results?

I’ll be saving money to get me a 19.5 here in the next few months.

I’ve carried a Gen3 19 for years and it is one of my favorite handguns. I’ve always been a Gen3 guy as the finger grooves have never really bothered me and I have more experience shooting them than the other Generations.

As for the Gen5 I absolutely HATE the ambi slide-release...it’s an extra lever hanging off of the gun that I’ll never use. Has been kind-of a deal breaker for me thus far. But a friend of mine bought one last week and I got it in my hands the other day and I have to say that the Gen5 19 feels amazing in my hands so I’ll likely need to overlook the ambi SR and just buy one.
