Today:  The New Glock 19 Gen 5 Review. Good new gun, with features that make it feel like the older models but updated internals that should make more robust and nicer to shoot.  I like it.

Thoughts on the Glock 19 Gen 5


  • Loved shooting if from Reset
  • Don’t like the first trigger pull
  • Felt like shooting a DA/SA Gun


  • Like the new pointed front
  • Love the no finger grooves
  • Want a trigger guard undercut
  • Like the checkering


  • Like the Texturing
  • Don’t like the front cut on the grip to get the magazine out if you need to
  • Balanced the same as a Glock 19
  • All the controls feel the same
  • New Ambi Slide Stop seems to work very well as a stop and release
  • My Wife said it has the easiest slide to pull back of all the guns she’s fired (she’s limited to the guns in my safe)

  • No Finger Grooves
  • Different Barrel Design
    • New Rifling
    • Recessed Crown
