No Gen5 For Me

I've been buying and using Glocks since the 1990's. Over the years not only did I buy their guns, but I bought into their system. A lot of interchangeable stuff like barrels, threaded barrels, magazines and other parts easily bought on the market. With Glock Gen5 you have no interchangeable parts with other generations to include barrels with no threaded, no prior generation magazines or other parts. So…no Gen5 for me! The new Glock 19X will take the old magazines, but not the Gen5, but has the new barrel. Consider this when buying it.

that's a good heads up. I really like the Gen 5, but you still make a valid point. Are you sure the mags aren't interchangeable though?
Gen5 mags won't fit other generations because the angle has changed at the base of the magazine. Not sure on the "extended" magazines.

I was more excited with the Summer Specials then the Gen5's.
I bought a 19FS Gen4 and when the RTF2's with gill came back, I bought a 17. I guess each to his own.
