I really liked this whole post (some portions not copied here), but this part was really great (IMHO). I thought at some point, Glock would redesign the bottom portion somewhat (more than ambi & finger grooves). And yes...I might even pay a little more for for that.

At the same time...I still shoot Glocks a lot.

My first gun was a G19 gen3. I gave it to my sister.

Then I bought a G23 gen4 and sold it.

Then I bought a G19 gen4 and sold it.

Then I bought a G17 gen3 and sold it.

I am now the proud owner of a G34 gen4 and love it. I don't think I will sell it(...).

Picked up a new Gen4 G19. I didn't care for the 19 until I'd shot the 17 a bunch and the Gen 4 19 feels much better and different to me than the Gen 3 19.

Most definitely. For me too, the gen3 and gen4 19's are a night and day difference. The Gen3 always felt too big in the grip. The Gen4 is perfect.

Just got a Gen4 G26. I can tell I am going to put some mileage on this one.

I am down to 2 43's.1 Black on FDE frame and Black on Grey frame. I shoot them a little and they are awesome guns but the one i have absolutely fallen for is my Glock 40 10mm long slide. To date i have probably 2,000 rounds thru it. I have fired Sig 180 grain fmj,Sig 180 grain premium defense (both sig ammo types are VERY hot) Federal 180 grain FMJ, Blazer 200 grain FMJ, Federal 180 grain Hydra shoks, Sellier and Bellot 180 Grain FMJ, 200 Grain PMC FMJ's, 175 grain silvertips, and 1 box of Hornady 155 grain hollow points.
From hot ammo to real mild it does not miss a beat, very accurate and easy to shoot. The more mild stuff is like shooting 9mm.
10mm has become very plentiful and if you hunt for some deals i can make it affordable although it is still on the high side compared to .45 or 9mm.
The G40 is my favorite Glock and really fills a bunch of different roles.

Brought home a rescue the other day - gen 2.5 G27. Some asshat had milled the lower for one of those safeties - which I immediately removed. Then a complete detail stripping, with cleaning, a couple drops of oil, and a light film of grease on the metal frame rails and the bottom of the slide. Then a new RSA, and a smooth trigger with trigger bar; presto, solid shooter grade G27.

Midway had ETS mags on sale, so I figured I'd get one with my other parts to round out the order. Fantastic results so far, but only 150 through it as of now. I would not hesitate to get another (or six) Cool

I think a nice clean gen4 G22 police trade in with nights would be a good compliment to this gun, so that's what I'm keeping an eye out for now.

The G-26 with 15 round magazine and x-grip has the perfect grip shape to me. I wish they made the g-19 this shape.

I wonder if one of the glock choppers could get it close.

I may actually thin my Glock herd a bit. I have an excess of G17 pistols, and the G34 MOS has lost its allure, now that I have a G19 MOS. This does not mean I am finished buying Glocks, just that I have settled upon G19-sized weapons as the sweet spot, and may add a G30S for upcoming travel to "occupied" states.

My skinny fingers actually like the Gen4 G19 finger groove spacing, and I like the way that a G19-length pistol clears leather with some high-riding holsters, compared to longer Glocks. This includes the Safariland 6360, mandated as my duty holster; duty pants have a higher waist band than most pants.

The 19M and 17M models should be making their way to us this summer according to The Firearm Blog. No finger grooves...

Full M models? Or Gen 4 with no finger grooves and front serrations? Glock spends more time on changing internals that work, than externals that people are not too crazy about.

Glock internals have remained nearly unchanged in 30 years. Subtle improvements or refinements have been made. The changes in the generations of Glocks have primarily been external.

Given that the brand continues to be one of the most ubiquitous and most sold brands of handgun in the world, as well as the most widely carried and used, maybe it isn't about what people are "crazy about."

There are those who say "I'd buy one if it didn't have finger grooves." Fair enough...but there aren't enough of those to make it a major issue, else economics may have dictated a change back to the Gen 2 style long ago.

Personally, I don't customize the grips or make big changes; I adapt and learn to shoot the handgun. I've made minor changes to mine, sight upgrades or selections of the OEM offerings (swapping smooth trigger for serrated, but with Glock parts)...but I'd like to be able to pick up any Glock and fire instead of a one-off abortion that I tried to customize for myself.

No, my hand wasn't used to make the mould for the finger grooves; it's a standard feature that I have to adapt to, and I do. I'm far more concerned that the pistol is reliable and that I can put the rounds where they need to go, than whether the finger grooves are there or whether it's been custom molded to my fingers. I'll adapt, like most pistols. I wasn't "crazy" about the flat front strap on the P239 when I first got one, but I quickly adapted. After all, the pistol wasn't changing, so I needed to, and I carried it daily for several years. Turns out that it's a shooter issue.

For those who aren't "crazy" enough to buy a Glock with finger grooves, I'll probably take up their position on the sales numbers at least a few more times and add to a growing large number of Glocks. I'm not "crazy" about them, but I buy them because they work really well and because I adapt to them. They don't adapt to me. Doesn't bother me a bit so long as it goes bang and the bullet goes where it's supposed to.

Not too concerned about the color, either.

That's not even close to what they said in the article on the 17M that TFB posted today. See for yourself at http://www.thefirearmblog.com/...017/04/22/glock-17m/

Quotes from the article include:

"At the top of my (and many others) list of releases is the the elusive Glock Generation 5 and/or ‘M’ models that may or may not make an appearance sometime this year."

And

"Again, at this point we have no idea if the ‘M’ series will make it into public hands or if a separate ‘Generation 5’ series will debut sometime in the future."


Where in there does TFB say anything like "17Ms and 19Ms will be available to the public this summer"?

Thanks, Rogue! Sorry guys, my bust. I was thinking the April 7 post there was for the M models, but it referenced the "C"s we may have talked about with the front and rear slide grooves. Wishful thinking on my part.

http://www.thefirearmblog.com/...ock-models-g19c-g24/

I read yesterday's post Rogue mentioned too. Still hopeful they announce something soon as mentioned in the article perhaps at the NRA meeting and show.

He said "ubiquitous".

I'm saying when the GEN 4 came out, the internals were changed that offered no real improvements over the gen 3. As a matter of fact many still prefer gen 3 trigger feel. Apparently the M models changed internals once again and had to be sent back almost immediately. Sounds like a way to become less "ubiquitous" to me.
