TECHNOLOGY OF THE FUTURE
nDLC finish for barrel and slide
GLOCK‘s nDLC provides tougher, more durable protection than previously used finish. The nDLC finish is exclusive to the GLOCK manufacturing process. The nDLC finish increases protection against corrosion and scratching and improves the ability of the pistol to function in degreased or adverse conditions. The nDLC finish will be exclusive to Gen5 pistols at this time.
Ambidextrous Slide Stop Lever
The ambidextrous slide stop lever makes it easier for gun owners to quickly, safely and comfortably manipulate the slide whether they are left-handed or right-handed.
The larger opening of the flared mag-well makes it easier to funnel the magazine into the mag-well, particularly in high-stress situations where fractions of seconds matter.
GLOCK Marksman Barrel
The GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) features new barrel rifling which delivers improved accuracy.
Removal of the finger grooves on the grip
Removing the finger grooves improves the ergonomics of the grip. The absence of finger grooves improves the ability of the pistol to deliver a consistently comfortable grip to a wider range of consumers, regardless of their finger size and whether or not gloves are worn.
GLOCK Gen5 Magazine
The new GLOCK Gen5 magazine comes with an orange follower and a floor plate which is extended at the front for faster magazine change.
The GLOCK Gen5 models also feature some of the proven Gen4 advantages, such as:
Modular backstrap and beavertail system
Every GLOCK Gen4 and Gen5 model comes with backstraps in two sizes each one with or without beaver tail. The multiple backstrap frame allows the users to change the circumference of the grip to fit their individual hand size.
Enlarged reversible magazine catch
The magazine catch of the Gen4 and Gen5 frames is reversible and enlarged towards the rear of the pistol. The reversible magazine catch is more user friendly to the shooter‘s reach and allows them to switch the catch to the left or right side of the pistol.
RTF Rough textured frame surface
The Gen4 and Gen5 have a rough textured frame (Gen4 RTF) surface designed to enhance grip traction, without being too aggressive. It is present on the frame as well as on the interchangeable backstraps.
Glock 17–love ’em or hate ’em, everybody respects them. Is the Gen 5 worth upgrading from Gen 4? Not in my experience, as the differences are subtle. A Glock is still a Glock, which to me equates to Durable and Reliable Simplicity. Betcha won’t torture and bury a 1911 and expect it to flawlessly function!

The new Glock 17 gen 5 grip shape is amazing! For the longest time I have loved Glock reliability, but not the shape and conture of the grip. They have nailed it with the Gen5. The forward cocking serrations are a nice addition which saved me $150 at the gunsmith having mill work done.

firearmssuppliers is really awesome to deal with!! Great selection, they had the exact gun I wanted when most places did not. I was able to shop, pay and have the item shipped using their excellent website process. They shipped the item within a few days and my FFL dealer received it quickly. All was in perfect shape, no damage and nothing missing. Transfer went smoothly. I highly recommend firearmssuppliers.com and will use them for future weapon needs.
