Glock G19 Gen 5 For Sale-Glock has continually updated their pistols since the first generation Glock 17 was released in 1982, and the Gen 5 is the latest iteration of their design.
Every couple of years, Glock makes a collection of design changes to their pistols, and each set of changes results in a new generation of Glock pistols.
The changes tend to be too small to have a noticeable impact on how the gun feels, shoots, or performs, but they’re worth considering nonetheless.
The latest generation of Glock pistols is the Gen 5 series, released in late 2017.
In this case, most of the changes are due to a list of requirements released by the FBI in late 2015.
The FBI was shopping for a new sidearm for its agents, and Glock created a new pistol to meet these requirements and promptly won the contract in 2016.glock g19 gen 5 9mm pisto
As is often the case, Glock decided to release the new pistol to the civilian market, which gave us the new Gen 5 series of pistols.
The Glock 19 Gen 5 is a compact pistol designed to offer the feel, firepowder, and control of a full-size handgun, while still being small enough to conceal.
Thanks to its size, magazine capacity, and shootability, the Glock 19 Gen 5 is probably the best all-rounder pistol you could hope for.
It works for concealed carry, duty, military, and competition use.
The Gen 5 version is the latest iteration of Glock pistols, which are based on the pistol the FBI adopted in 2016.
Glock 19 Gen 5 Assessment
After 7,000 rounds, I’ve had one malfunction. And most of that has been cheap steelcase ammo from Tulammo, Wolf, Winchester, and the like.
Not noticeably more accurate than previous generation Glocks, although it’s perfectly sufficient for most tactical and defensive shooters.
You can find more comfortable pistols right out of the box, but with training you’ll find the ergonomics on the Glock 19 Gen 5 don’t hinder your shooting.
You will not find a pistol with more upgrade options than this one, except perhaps the Glock 19 Gen 4 (and that will change as aftermarket companies produce more parts for the Gen 5).
Highly subjective, but I think the new Gen 5s look great.
