    Default Re: Glock Gen 3 v 4 v 5

    I shot the Glock 17 Gen 5 next to the Gen 4 at GOSA's Firearms Festival and could really not "feel" sufficient difference to upgrade from my Gen 3 and Gen 4 17's. Feel, however, is subjective and one should really do a blinded experiment with identically set up Gen 4 and Gen 5's (which will be difficult to do because the grips differ).

Whatever the cause the fact remains that Glock saw fit to reinforce this area with the gen 5.
    That abuse may not be super obvious in the pics, but on every one of those I have ever seen broken, you could see where that had taken a blow. And i've seen it on more Gen2's and 3's than 4's persoanlly, but that could be because of a number of factors. Its still a rare occurrence.

    Is it a case of dissembled slide taking a knock ? Seems it needs to fall at a perfect angle to not hit the barrel first?

    It can only damage the spring guide if you drop a a slide separated from the frame yeah.
