Just got my new duty gun today and its a Gen 5 G17. I heard that the frames weren't beveled to match the slide but mine is . Here's a picture. Did Glock start doing them ? Or were the ones that were not beveled the 19's ?

I bought a set of sponge-on-mud-guards from the Glockstore for my Glock. It keeps dirt and debries out of the slide.

In all seriousness, I am going to wait till I get my tax return and buy a Glock 17.5. Won't be until probably May.

I was thinking the same. Just bought a 19 Gen5 tonight and it has the non beveled slide. Doesn’t bother me in the least. I honestly don’t see what all the hoopla is as to whether the slide is beveled or not. It’s like a pig nose Glock in that it still performs its intended task. Glock perfection isn’t about cosmetic looks, it’s about firing every time the trigger is pulled.

They will be marked B on the slide. See below.

Glock 17B Gen5 P.O. Box 9 A-2232 Deutsch Wagram AUSTRIA Tel.:+43(0)2247-90300-0 9x19

Needless to say the only models available will be the Long Slide
