    New member, long time Glock owner.. Need help in deciding which direction to go with my next purchase. Currently own a 17 Gen 3 and 26 Gen 4. Looking at a 19 due to the common magazines but unsure on whether to go with a Gen 4 or 5. Never had an issue with the finger grips on my other Glocks. Any advice would be appreciated.. Thanks!

    Welcome to GT! I favor the Gen4 as I actually like the finger grips.

    Welcome to GT, also rather new myself, though not to Glocks. I have no preferences regarding Gen 4 or 5. Get whichever is cheaper or feels better to you is my opinion, and buy magazines and ammo, lots of them/it.

    Hello and Welcome. Handle both and make up YOUR mind. pretty much comes down to finger grooves or not.
