    The only Gen 5 I'd consider. Nice buy!

    Congratulations. Too bad they didn't bevel the frame. [That's intended to be humorous. :)]

    What numerical markings are on the heel of the RSA? The latest Gen4 G26 RSA is marked 0-left, 8-right, and 2-bottom (0-8-2). I'm wondering if the Gen5 G26 uses the same RSA. If it doesn't, how is the heel marked?

    It seems like it should use the ssme RSA, yet the Gen5 G19 does not use the same RSA (it has a different part number) as the Gen4 G19, even though both RSAs look identical.

    Is the fixed rear sight marked "6.5"?

    I assume it comes with the DOT connector.

    Picked mine up today as well.....ran 250 rounds through it without a hiccup. Except for my Magpul mags. Fired single shot each time. I’ll dig into it deeper but the G26 ran like a champ with factory mags, brass, and hollow points.

    A shop somewhat close to me has a gen 5 26 and a gen 5 34. I thought it was early too! Nice buy!

    Minor side track.
    My G19 Magpul mags tended to lock back with one round still in the mag when using my G19Gen5.
    I didn't have the patience or any ideas to even try as to why it was happening and traded the mags away to someone who'd use them.

    Were you able to get at least $100 off msrp on these early releases?
    This bodes well for my 19X coming sooner than expected (Jan. 22).

    I like the idea of no finger grooves. Does anyone know if the gen 4 grip plug, glock plus mag extensions, the X-grip spacer for 15 rnd mag and Glock night sights will fit on the gen 5 G26? If they all fit, I could be tempted to get one.

    Congrats on your new Gen 5 26.

    I too want to see detailed photos, so much so I went web surfing for them. I think I found the very best video from sootch00. Sorry for the mild hijack

    Notice the polygonal rifling view of the new Glock Marksman Barrel at 5:58 in the video. I had never seen the barrels sliced open like this

    I did not pay MSRP, walked out at $575 including tax. I still want to figure out the Magpul issue, but that will wait. It’s my understanding that Glock has asked the wholesalers to “hold” the 19X until Shot Show but they have released the 26 and 34MOS in Gen 5 to the public.
