Glock 17M 9mm Gen 5

Glock In August 2017, the “fifth generation,” also known as “Gen 5“, was introduced. The upgrades were focused on improving ergonomics and advancing the dependability of the system. A large number of components of fifth-generation Glock pistols cannot be swapped with those of previous generations for various reasons. The Glock 17, chambered for the 9×19 Parabellum, was named the official pistol.

The use of both hands slides stop switches. As well as DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) surface finish for the barrel and slide are some of the most noticeable modifications on the fifth-generation guns. An improved polygonal rifling type in the barrel (dubbed the “Glock Marksman Barrel” by Glock), a more profoundly receded barrel crown, and supervision of the finger grooves on the grip are all features of this model.

A magazine well that has erupted, and the introduction of a new pattern on the base front of the grip that has been half-moon molded. The locking block pin that was placed above the trigger pin in the third iteration of the design has been removed from consideration.

The “Gen 5” slide can be used to emphasize front serrations (FS) in order to provide an additional material footing surface choice. The magazines were also re-examined in order to accommodate the fifth-generation models. The redesigned magazine floor plates are distinguished by a frontward distending lip that provides grip for manually assisted extractions. In addition, the magazine follower was highlighted in orange to make it easier to see and recognize.
