Hello, i just wanted to introduce myself. Im corey from northeast, ohio. I just recieved my gen 5 19 gns and am still waiting on my gen 5 17 gns. I had a question about the frames not matching up with the slide that people didnt like? Im confused bc i can NOT for the life of me figure out what everyone is talking about? My frame and slide match perfectly, i honestly dont see how it could get any better? Any info is much appreciated. i am trying to post a picture but have no idea how on an iPhone.

Yes, the Gen5 front frame contour now matches that of the slide. I believe this new frame design is very recent.

Congratulations on waiting out Glock until they corrected this obvious aesthetic oversight of the previous Gen5 frames. :)

The whole Gen5 design departs quite radically from earlier generations, especially in much more significant areas such as slide lock and spring, slide stop lever and spring, trigger spring, firing pin safety, firing pin, and trigger bar. Except for the ambidextrous slide stop lever, the changes appear to be positive improvements. But I still would not buy a Gen5 until at least a year has gone by to allow time to detect and correct the inevitable problems from such massive mechanical modification. The frame bevel is the first notable post-introduction correction. There are likely to be others in time.

Welcome to Glock Talk!
What other changes do you see happening? That was really the only gripe ive seen from reading on here and other message boards and its fixed now. I love the magwell cutout and all of the other changes just from doing practices with it today. The trigger feels great too.

Thanks everyone, im excited to be a part of this forum now. Ive always read articles on this site for a long time as a “lurker” and ive found it to be very informational on questions ive had in past. As far as the bevel thing goes, im glad i waited bc honestly my ocd would have drove me nuts about it haha.
