    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 ? IMG_1823.jpg

    My gen5 19 wasn't but it should've been. Great look and feature. Congrats on the 17.

    Doesn't it cut down on air friction?

    Collectors will now be looking for the earlier frames.

    Larger rear site for better down force in newer models.

    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.

    Glad to see they “perfected” this part of the gen 5. I agree it doesn’t change or affect anything meaningful, but for sake of perfection... glad they chose to bevel the frame.

    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

    Obviously an over-sight... and a running change. All they need to do now, is remove the ambi slide release lever, and put back the missing piece of the front strap, and it would be a perfect gun.
