Thank you, this is exactly what I was looking for!The magazines will work no problem, the only difference in them is the base plate, and the followers are orange.
The barrels are supposed to work, but Glock does not condone the use of 5th Gen barrels in 4th Gen guns.
Have not heard of this prior to your post. Could you please supply a source for the information?I understand the Gen 5 barrels now put an identifiable mark on the fired bullets to aid forensic investigators.
The Gen 4 and earlier barrels had no such marking capability, making the tie between bullet and specific barrel very difficult if not impossible.
The barrel of a Gen5 G17 or G34 will definitely NOT fit the pre-Gen5 version, nor of course the other way either. Glock changed the barrel lug and locking block arrangement of Gen5 G17 and larger pistols to be the same as that used by the G19. This also means that Gen5 G17 barrels will fit G19s.Also is it possible to put a gen 5 barrel in a gen 4, assuming they are for the same firearm.
