My guess is to assist in pulling out a stuck or sticky magazine was probably a milspec or leo spec somewhere.

That is the intention. However, has anyone ever had any issues with factory Glock mags not dropping freely like butter? I fondled a Glock 19 Gen 5 and it felt great except for my pinky going into the cutout. I guess there’s always mag plugs that will fill it. It just seems like a needless modification. I like everything else about the Gen 5 though.
My thoughts exactly...there called 'drop-free'...

Well, I made it to the range for the first time in over a year.
Put some rounds through my new G19X, my beater truck gun a 1990 Gen 2 G17, my Kahr CW380, and a used 870 I bought a couple years ago.
The G19X trigger did feel a bit different than my other (older) Glocks, but I like it.
Although side by side, I feel I did better with my Gen 2 G17.
BTW I'm no marksman or expert.
I'm just a guy that occasionally hits the gun range.
Probably 10 yards or so.
On the small colored shapes, I shot at them until I hit them.
Notice less rounds with the Gen 2.
1990 Gen 2 G17
It is no wonder I favor and keep my Gen 2 and Gen 2.5 Glocks.
Nice to know that the 1987 870 Magnum I bought has no issues.
I bought it 2 years ago and never had a chance to shoot it.

As much as I want to keep it stock, I'm going to have to put an S&J Hardware safety on it.

I've not had problems with the mag relief cut on the G19 grip, but I have small hands and don't use my pinkie for my strong hand hold on the grip. It's not much different than how it intrudes on my Gen2. But I can see how someone with a meatier hand could be put off by it. Personally I still prefer the full size Gen5 grip over the compact, which is the reason for me favoring the G19X, G17G5 and G34G5 over the regular G19G5. The Gen5 G19 is the first of that model's lineage that I have absolutely no desire to own.
I spent about an hour this evening looking at gunbroker and reading reviews, I found a g40 mos with a trijicon RMR on it for 1150.00, I’m really trying to convince myself I don’t need it, I fortunately at this point with my new job and our move, I’d have to get rid of something to make room for it.
I figure when I’m down at my dads place this summer, I’ll look In the sage and see if I have anything kicking around that dosent hold some sort of sentimental value. I’m pretty sure I have a few Remington rifles that I will likely never use again or miss since they havnt been touched for 7 years. If I get rid of those, I think I could convince my wife I need the g40.
Ventured to the dark side again, well several shades of brown to be exact.
Got me a G19x
Hopefully can test it out this Saturday, boy I wish it was black.

Do you mind if I ask who is doing the RMR cut for you, and how much it’s costing?
I really want a G19 MOS and kept hoping Glock would release a gen 5 version of it, but that hasn’t happened yet.....

In case of a failure to extract, aka "double feed" stoppage you need to be able to have a grasp on the magazine to forcibly pull it out. This is because the top round in the magazine is pinched between the case that didn't extract and the slide and is hanging the mag up.

I'm also interested in Kevmo's question, I'd like to know who's milling your slide.

Mark at L and M Precision has done several glocks and an hk for me - all with flawless results.
I picked up a G17 this past weekend, too good a deal to pass up.
^^^ This! ^^^
Mine aren't going anywhere. Now if only I could slap a 40 MOS upper on a Gen2 22...
Looks like I'll just have to keep the carbine kit for it too.

Meet “Boop” (short for baby poop) my new 19X. I want to dislike Glocks, but it is hard to argue with the results.

Yeah, I’m right there with you, and I was looking to make a generational set. I just don’t need anything it does “better” than the Gen 4 I carry to want to deal with that half moon cut again that I don’t love on my gen 2’s. I’ve got some Glock 19’s without finger bumps on the front strap, and I’ve got one with the backstraps. I don’t see the need to marry those features and so I can live with what I’ve got.
I really don't need another Glock, but I couldn't pass this one up. I bought from a revolver guy who, shot one box of ammo through it & decided he still hated semi autos. I paid $100 less than Blue Label price at my local LE toy store.

I am loving my Gen 5 G34. It just feels right, it shoots right, its awesome.
Now I need a gen 5 G17 and 19

Mine was rubbing my pinkie raw in class on Sat.
When Blacklist or Agency comes out with a carry magwell for the G5, I'll install one.

A Type 3 malfunction locks the mag in place, you need to rip it out and it isn't always easy.
I would have preferred cut outs on the sides rather than the front.
Vickers baseplates take care of that problem
When glock flared the base of the gen 5 pistols, creating a built-in funnel, they eliminated the opportunity for aftermarket mags like agency arms products.
The agency arms minimalist well works fine to cover up the front cutout on pistols like the G34/35; I have them on mine and the front cutout disappears. The entire magwell is still smaller than the vickers baseplate, allowing extraction with the baseplate.This message has been edited. Last edited by: sns3guppy,
