I've been getting more range time with my new Gen 5 Glocks lately.

So, the feel of the grip on these gen5 guns is quite a bit different than the previous generations. I'm really liking it. I didn't use any of the add-on backstraps.

It feels a little smaller front-to-back. better contoured for my gorilla hands than the older ones. The magwell flare seems to help with the overall feel. Anyone else notice this? Or is it confirmation bias fooling me?

So, they took the 43, and upscaled it into both the 43X and 48. Now, if they would just do that same thing with the 36 !

After having so many of these guns, I've come back around to the 21. I've pretty much owned all the common Glock models, plus a few oddballs like the 17L. I've avoided 45 GAP and 357 SIG. I periodically think about getting a Model 32, but then I handle the Model 21 and 30 and decide against it.

But, the Glock 48 has been a real game changer for me. It's so thin and with the Shield Arms 15 round magazine, the Glock 17 and 19 don't make sense in many ways. Of course, I had to get a 17.5 since I haven't had a 17 for a long time Smile

So there it is. Buy as many as you can, frequently, shoot them and dump them when you feel like it. Keep the high end 1911's for the grandkids.

I own several Glocks, and have owned several more I don't have anymore. Of all the ones I have, this is my favorite. Glock 30 Gen 3 .45 ACP with XS Express Combat Sights and a G21 magazine with a X-Grip. With the X-Grip, it feels better in the hand than my G21. It points better. It feels like a commander style G21 with a better grip.

After nothing but Sigs and HK's for almost the last ten years, Para's premonition finally came true. A few weeks ago an early gen 5 19 found its way into the home. I took a part time job at a local gun shop a few months ago and initially bought the glock to educate myself more, then sell it this fall. Well, after the first range session a few weeks ago ive decided the glock is a keeper.

VictorLouis, take a look at the 30S, it’s a 10 shot double stack 36 (so to speak).
I have both the 36FGR and 30S, both great shooters.

I've had a few, still have a 17,22, and my bug a 27. I call her Babs after Barbara Stresand. Ugly as hell, but she sure can sing.

Don't tell me what to buy!

Okay, maybe... Glock 19s are hard to find and I want one.
But also G43x. One of these handguns will find its way into my home...

Question is, can we buy a glock FCU?

Glocks don't use P320-style swappable FCUs. Their frame is the serialized part, like most handgun designs.

But you can buy stripped frames, both factory and aftermarket.

Ahh, makes sense.. I'm a Glock newbie Big Grin
So, would it be easier to just buy a complete gun and then customize after?

It really depends on what you want to do with it, honestly. Let's start there. "Customize" covers a lot of turf, and without knowing what you want to end up with, it's not really possible to suggest where to begin.

Ya, you're right. The Glock will be more of a toy than an EDC. So, ~4.5 barrel or less, custom slide, barrel, compensator, RDS, etc. Possibilities are endless.
I have a bunch of 9mm's so a 45 would be good but have very little experience shooting a 45 or any Glock for that matter.

Well right now...we cannot SELL a Glock.

Glocks...<grumble>...no inventory anywhere...for WEEKS...perpetually out with every distributor...how the hell can I get anything to sell...I know...

Rely on SIG, S&W, HK, Canik, Beretta, Walther, CZ, even Springfield. They sell direct. They ship direct. At least a trickle is better than NOTHING AT ALL.

Trouble is...it doesn't stop those incessant questions: "Do you have any Glocks?" "Do you have Glock 19s?" "Can I special order a Glock?"

Aaauugggghhh!!!!
<insert Charlie Brown emoji here>

As far as I'm concerned, Glock NEEDS to modify their distribution strategy here in the U.S. Distributors seldom limit how many units a given dealer can buy; time it right and in theory one can rule the market, at least momentarily. West Coast Armory did it after Newtown, when they scarfed up any and every Glock they could find in distributors' hands. Nationwide. Not sure who's ruling the roost this time around. I just know it's not us. Not even close. This kind of crap shuts out everyone else and needs to stop.

Frustrated. <Completely self-serving rant off>

I bought my first in the 90’s- a G21 .45. The next one I bought new was this year under the Blue Label/Salute program.
I could not find any of the Gen 5 (orange follower) larger capacity mags anywhere locally. Couldn’t understand why I didn’t see any on Glock’s webpage store, so I called Glock. (Obviously Glock fans can tell I have not been a frequent Glock user). So I asked the customer service fellow why no magazines on the web store page and he gave me the usual customer service “do you know how to use the web site to identify a dealer?”, blah, blah routine. Eyeroll.
I know how to find a dealer, says I. I found all of the local dealers and NONE of them have any of these magazines…

Well, I can’t help you- says he. You’ll just have to search online…
Good customer service, but very different from other firearm manufacturers, all I can say.
I finally did find two 24 round mags-

Truly. Sky's the limit, dude. If you want something to tinker with, a 17 or a 19 in whatever flavor you like is a fine place to start.

One request, though - please don't take a soldering iron to a Gen 1 or 2. Don't be that guy. They made other Glocks after those to address the slick grip. Wink Big Grin

You wanna take a wild guess why you're having a difficult time finding Glock magazines right now?

Also, how many times of late do you think that Glock employee has fielded calls asking about magazines which cannot be found at ths time?

Your comments indicate you feel as if you didn't get good customer service, then you say it's good customer service, but "different". In my experience, no firearms manufacturer exceeds Glock CS and I can't think of a single one now which is equal to them.

Still a double-stacked brick in my hand, LOL. Just imagine a G36 taken to 4.5" barrel, and 8rd (semi-staggered?} mag? Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet
