    Gen 4 full size and compact guns use different RSA's for 9mm versus 40/357.

    Glock has finally realized their error in making a 22/31 out of the 17. Implementing more correct RSA’s has assisted in better results, but is just a temporary fix.

    Glock is finally going to build a .40 for the .40. Im interested in results as all calibers on paper show promising results.

    In Competition to adjust to ammo we use springs to fine tune our loads and how we adapt to lift and push. Realize a certain core of resilience is needed in the platform itself.

    If the platform is carried frequently and used infrequently no problem. Myself 20 years ago I was putting 20k rounds a year downrange in a G22. I was breaking pins and springs frequently and heat was not dissipated well. After 2 years I changed to the 9mm platform and those issues went away.

    I’m hoping to see product that will compliment the cartridge and work well in harmony. I can appreciate those though who prefer no such changes, time will tell if the release is made in the US.

    If it isn't the 9mm fanbois it is the 357 sig fanbois telling you .40 is bad and you should feel bad for liking something they don't.

    Probably the same reason people bring up 357 Sig when nobody asked about it.

    Agree. Engineering has finally fixed the rush to market. Looking forward to the gen5 .40s.

    Oh by the way, I will be keeping my current 22 & 27.

    No I think it's more 9mm fanboy rationalization than anything. When people offer information about the 357 Sig they are offering factual helpful comments.

    I'm not interested in a Gen 5 40 caliber Glock if it has a heavier slide. My first Glock was a G19 and when I found out I could get the same exact gun in a more powerful caliber I sold the 19 and got a 23.

    Then I got a KKM 40-to-9 conversion barrel and was surprised at how little difference there was in recoil especially with +P load in the 9.

    I wouldn't mind if they made a heavy slide version of the G22, because I've never liked those guns anyway, and same with the G17, I much prefer the G19. But leave the G23 and G27 the way it is. I even liked the G38 45 GAP except for the bulkier slide. I don't wan to see them do that to the G23 in the Gen 5's.

    And speaking of 40 and 357 Sig caliber Gen 5's, will there be a G23 and G32 X?

    A # 20 RSA does wonders taming recoil. The last thing I need is more weight in a CCW.

    You know what would be an interesting experiment to try? Take a G22 that is having problems with a WML and drop a 9mm conversion barrel (or G31 barrel) into it and see if it fixes the problem. I have a G22 with a conversion barrel but unfortunately (well, fortunately) mine has done fine with any kind of light on it with or without the conversion barrel.

    This is an excellent suggestion, using the G20 (and G29) to shoot .40. Fixes all of the supposed problems with the Glock .40 models (snappy, recoil, WML issues, durability). Shooting .40 through my 10mms is like shooting 9mm ammo in feel and probably as easy on the pistols as what the 9mm guns endure.

    I’m surprised Glock took the time to redesign the G22 for the Brazilians instead of just sending them G20s for duty and G29s for concealment. And as a bonus, the Brazilians could have upped the firepower any time they wanted by going to 10mm. Which by all accounts, they could certainly use.

    That's some pretty funny stuff. Talk about rationalization.

    We can only surmise, but the 27 and 23 could morph into one size similar to the 29.

    First they didn't redesign specifically for Brazil, the 23MHS had the changes. Second the slide width isn't as large as the 20 & 29.

    For real. If someone is asking a question specifically about a .40 and the question isn't would something else be better then the 9mm and 357 sig comments are pretty useless.

    The .40 and 357 Sig are my two carry calibers, not sure were you are coming from.

    Hmm my Gen3 G22 RTF2, has run a TLR1 since it was first issued to me and hasn’t had a single malfunction ever.

    Did the 23 MHS have the wider slide?
