Likely never. The Gen 5 frame is not as strong as the Gen4 (2 pin vs 3 pin.) I think .40 needs the three pin frame.

Thanks. It does seem the 17 and 19s get a lot of attention to changes recently (must be connected to sales volume...).

I joined the forum ten years ago because I picked up a P226 Stainless Elite and wanted to learn a little more about Sig pistols. It was my first handgun.
I now own two Sigs and six Glocks amongst the 25 or so handguns I've purchased the last ten years.
My "go to" is and will always be a Glock.

I keep playing with the Gen5 guns at work. That thing about being perpetually broke as a result of being employed at a gun shop is working its dreaded mojo once again.

Up until the Gen5 I've always preferred the feel of the compact frame over the full-size, even with the somewhat similar Gen2 guns. But something about the Gen5s has me liking the G17 over the G19 this time around. I can't precisely explain it, but the full-size just feels right compared to the smaller G19.

Oh and then we just got a couple of the CZ 75 SP-01 Phantoms in, but that's a tale for another thread...oh how my paycheck could take a another beating!

Local store quoted me five fundred plus tax for the G17 Rtf2 with the curved serrations once it becomes available. I may very well have to do that.

I had wanted one of the Phantoms , but they were discontinued, and I purchased the P 09, then the Phantoms were reintroduced.

Wanting to see one of the G5/17's you speak of. Have seen the Gen5/19.

Whats a poor boy gonna do these days?

Likewise I prefer the grip fit/feel of my Gen4 G19 to my Gen4 G34.

I don't have a Gen5. However, after buying/shooting both Gen4 pistols, I noticed a distinct difference between the two grips. Part is the positioning of the finger grooves and part is the shape of the back strap.I was surprised, since these were my first two Glocks and I had assumed the G19 grip was just a shorter G34/17 grip...wrong.

I suspect the lack of grooves on the Gen5 G17 allows a slightly different grip, depending on hand and grip style. Also the contour of the back strap. Regardless, if it works it works.

Seriously. When I look at the grip I think "Gen 1 perfected." I quite like the overall product.

I've had this battle with myself over several Glocks in different calibers. The full size frames just didn't have that "feel".
And now you say the full size gen5 feels right. Gee thanks, my bank account really needed to hear that. Wink

Like Swage, I remember when this thread started. I laughed. And I scoffed the idea I'd ever own those ugly plastic guns.

Love my G19 and G34. They're my car gun and EDC. Poor W. German P226 is relegated to nightstand duty these days...

HK's, SW's, and 1911s have come and gone, only the Sigs (my first gun was a Sig p6) and the Glocks have found permanent homes.

The Gen 1 17 I own feels like the absolute perfectly sized handgun, even though I carry a Gen 4 19 every day. A 17 with no finger grooves feels great in the hand. I think I need to handle a Gen 5 before I try to commit to buying one of those Gen 3 RTF2 reissues in a 17.

Shot my G19.5 again today. Only 150 rounds though. I REALLY like this gun. It is joy to shoot.

Of course and do own one. I would consider any firearm that is originally designed for military use. You know the military will run various tests to ensure it is rugged, reliable and in most all environmental conditions. Knowing that your firearm is going to work is what counts above all else.

I can predict the future!

(I can also predict the past, but no one seems to care about that)
