Looks like Glock has introduced some nice touches in the Gen 5. Who is going to bite? Noticed a few Gen 4s got posted recently so my guess is people are digging the new gen?

I noticed the same thing and figured it may be related to the gen 5 coming out. I'm sure I'll be happy with the NIB gen 4 I'll be picking up in a few though!

I had some interests. But after watching this video, I changed my mind.

You changed your mind after watching just that? He basically said that the Glock is ugly... tell us something we don't know. Maybe this video can change your mind again... at least he shoots it!

Ok....Here's a positive review on the Gen5. I noticed an inconsistent ejection pattern....Like most gen4s and late gen3s. Now if you like these gen 5s, go ahead and buy them...more power to you.

I'm thinking about selling my Gen 4 and jumping....BUT I'm also considering sending it off to Zev. I really like the silicon carbide grip treatment.

What "inconsistent ejection pattern"? It shot reliably, ejected the brass, and didn't hit him in the face... what is the problem? The video I linked even addressed it, and he said it wasn't an issue like in previous Glocks.

I really don't care one way or another... just thought it was odd that you would state that you aren't interested in one anymore after some dude just said it was ugly...

I already ordered a Gen 5 G19 and I should have it some time this week. I really like the combination of the Gen 4 grip size and the finger grooves being removed.

I did notice some of the brass falls back on the slide (go to 13:05 of the video).

If you like shooting a generic, boring, "brick" by all means get one. Sorry, I put Glock right there with Tikka and Vortex

Just 1 mans opinion which is worthless. confused2

2 of the 3 you mention are top selling items these days. I'll put my Vortex scopes against any brand of scope on market.... there's a reason why PRS guys switched to them

Yep, my Glock is certainly generic, as it looks like every other black polymer pistol out there... boringly reliable too. But the fact that it is so boringly reliable is the reason I like it. Like my CZ for the same reasons. My Colt Government Pocketlite on the other hand, never a "boring" range session with it!

Ya, he did have a few bounce off the slide... could be ammo related. Not sure if what he is shooting is new or re-manufactured, but I have had experiences with Freedom Munitions where it wouldn't lock my slide back.

I don't know. I'm not going to rush out and get one of these to replace my old gen 3 gun.
