Summary: The description, specs, pricing and photos of the Glock 17 Gen5 pistol.

Manufacturer’s Description

The Glock 17 Gen5 is, like its close relatives the 17 Gen4 and 17 Gen3, a semiauto striker-fired pistol built on a compact polymer frame with a steel slide, and chambered in 9mm. Standard features include three-dot fixed sights, a trigger safety and a tactical rail.

The 17 Gen5 differs from the Gen4 in several aspects, including:

  • No finger grooves on the front strap;
  • a flared mag well;

  • an ambidextrous slide-stop lever;
  • a rounded/de-horned muzzle;
  • rear-only slide grip serrations;
  • an nDLC finish; and
  • a Glock Marksman Barrel, which feature improved rifling and a match crown;

Like the 17 Gen4, the Gen5 still includes:

  • a multiple backstrap frame
  • a reversible magazine release catch (either flat or extended);
  • an accessory rail; and
  • a dual recoil spring assembly.

The 17 Gen5 will reportedly accept Gen3 and Gen4 magazines.
