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 really like the 19.5. I need to learn to shoot them better. I'm not a great handgun shooter but I developed decent groups with my Gen 4 19s through a consistent grip, trigger, etc. Now that I have Gen 5s...I need to redevelop muscle memory for the Gen 5. A lot of people are able to transition well from one gen to another...or even one platform to another...but it takes me a bit to gain proficiency. I haven't held the 17.5...but then again I haven't been interested in the 17 since I've found my fondness for the 19.
