I wondered how long the Gen 4 was going to stay in production. The Gen 3 is purely because of California and keeping multiple generations of guns in production has to be a bit of a pain in the butt for Glock.

Hopefully this means Gen 5 pistols in .45 and 10mm before long.

This thread has lasted longer than the Ge4 Glocks, which were announced in 2010.

I've not owned a Gen4 and probably never will. The Gen5 pistols, now there's something worth purchasing.

That’s hilarious re: this thread’s life vs. the Gen4s!

I’ve been pondering a Gen5 17, myself.

I've sold all but one of my Gen4 Glocks and bought several Gen5's. I especially like the G45 but the G26gen5 really has become my carry gun.

BTW, all this marketing hype by Glock about the "Marksman Barrel"? Yeah, the new barrels may be more accurate intrinsically, but if you want to know the real reason Glock changed the barrel, take a look at that video I posted on the previous page. The GMB shoud really be called the "Firearms Forensics Barrel".

Now that Glock has gotten rid of the grip cutout on the Gen5 G19, I am ready to buy several - but of course the availability of 9MM Glocks of any variety is pretty much nil.

I have a G45 so I know what they bring to the table but for the time being I'll be fine with the Gen4s in the stable. Besides, they are all known quantities and trusted now.

I just found a Gen 5 G34 MOS in stock at a reasonable price. So that is now my 4th gen 5 Glock and I gave my son my gen 4 G19.

I'm waiting to hear more on the Gen 5s in the other legacy models, back on page 500 I was wondering about G22 Gen 5s....well, I guess the answer is wait just a wee bit longer for them. Smile

if the gen3/4 357 barrels fit the new gen5 .40 guns, I will buy one to test.
else, I guess I better go buy my twin gen4 32s this year for my blue label purchases.

I just bought another G26 gen4, as it's my favorite carry gun... and no more Gen 4s will be produced... lube it up, tuck it in the back of the safe for spare.

It doesn't have to be like that, y'know. Just own up and be free.

I dare to speak that love we do not name...Glock... I own several and it’s the main gun I use at work. This is a great thread...over 10 years.

I am also waiting for the Gen5 40 Glocks to come out. A Gen5 G35 would be sweet. I’ll add a KKM 357sig barrel for a great combo. (when offered)
Cool

i picked up a glock once and the owner told me go ahead and dry fire ,, Was not impressed at all . It bothers me that i dont really" get it " with the glocks .. I think i will buy a surplus glock and see if i can change my own mind .. The reliability and simplicity thing with glocks is appealing ..Can aways sell or trade if it does not work out

Yes, I agree, 'You will buy a Glock'. But in my case I'd add, 'You will sell a Glock'.

I converted 9 of my Glocks into Sigs. I kept a G41.4 with an additional G21.4 upper. I like using the G21 as a test bed for 45 SUPER development.

I got tired of the Glock knuckle, trigger, grip angle, not so great case support and having to buy aftermarket barrels to shoot lead and avoid the 'Glock case bulge'. They are generally reliable for sure but so are other platforms.

I have fewer pistols now but I really enjoy looking at steel & wood vs plastic. Plastic pistols can be very effective but they don't 'speak' to me the way a 1911 or a P220 does.

Well, these days, most marriages end in divorce, so, that's no surprise. Nevertheless, the prophecy is fulfilled.

Hopefully, the settlement allowed you to retain your bore brush. Little is sadder than a man bereft of his tool err tools.

Well after owning my Glock 19 for nearlly 2 years I can say it was well worth the price I paid and then some.

I'm now transitioning it to my bedside gun and have the misses primarily take over the VP-9 exclusively.

Just put a factory Glock extended mag release and slide release on it and what a world of difference. Makes it a whole new gun and it was so cheap and easy to install should have did it the day I bought it.

Now I want another Glock but with the whole Covid BS where I live the shelves are bare and on the used market any model Glock is 300 bucks or more over MSRP. Guess I'll have to wait it out since all the anti's are buying everything up.

I recently wanted a G44, but locally they can't order them in. Nothing.

I did change the connector in my G34 last night, and today it's like a completely different animal.

Really thinking about a Gen 5 G34 MOS...and just ordered a Red Hill Tactical holster for the G34 to set up a new belt. When the whole COVID thing dies down, I want to start running my G41 on steel night.

I'm holding out hope for a Gen 5 G32...

Well, Para was right-

My first Glock was around 1992, a G21 .45. The trigger always felt like a 50’s cap gun. (Yes, I know you can change the trigger, sigh).
Anyway, I gave it to my brother. I looked at and shot Glocks over the years and still… meh.

About March timeframe I was looking at STI 2011s and a friend let me shoot his new G34 Gen 5 MOS. I was pleasantly surprised.

Supposedly over 35 things were changed on the Gen 5s. It does feel like a totally different platform. So I did it.

(Thanks to Glock and their Blue Label/Veteran Salute program)…
