Cyberspace is buzzing with news of the Glock Gen 5 pistols; although, there’s been no formal announcement by the company. There’s also suggestions that availability will be end of August 2017, but like all things Glock (a more realistic, I can go to my dealer and find one I can touch) is probably 6 months out. So, my anchor pool pick for $5 is Q1 2018. We’ll see!
Meanwhile, the folks at Guns America produced a great video review of the G17 Gen 5 and G19 Gen 5. To me, the most interesting development is Glock’s move away from the polygonal barrel. It’ll be interesting to see what the incremental improvement in accuracy is or is the Gen 5 a targeted U.S. market product.
