I could see that being annoying in actual shooting and/or extended shooting sessions. Also, the trigger pull was really nice for a Glock.

    This is likely going to be the consensus for a lot of folks on the 5th gen G19. Again this is the issues I had with the 2nd gen guns and will be an issue with the 5th gen. Some may not see this as a big deal, but after a bit of shooting, the cutout really starts to irritate my pinky. The cut out isn't an issue on the full sized guns, so I might get a 5th gen G17 to replace my old 2nd Gen 17 range gun, but the 5th Gen G19 is out for me.

    The slide release DOES stick out farther, the material used is thicker. I didn't put calibers on it just eyeballed.

    Anyone know how much the Gen 5 guns with Ameriglo's will cost? Non LEO here. Just curious.

    Lane 7, behind the gun.
    Went to a local reveal with a buddy. Free pizza and pop at the range, dueling tree and pin shoot? Heck yeah! Definitely preferred the recoil of the G19. Positive reset, good trigger, like the magwell, ambi release and lack of finger groves. I know the groves are personal preference, really don't care myself, other than it is more similar to a P2000 or USP and therefore familiar. Brass ejection was very consistent, did not have or see any BTF. One young shooter had very poor recoil control, and still had very even ejection. I passed on my purchase, but my buddy couldn't resist and paid the $649. May get to shoot it some on Monday. Glock will sell a ton of them.

    Damn, that's a good deal. Is that what we could expect for GSSF prices?

    Do the Gen5 G19's have the smooth-faced trigger or the traditional G19 trigger? Ameriglo BOLD sights, BTF-free ejection, and a smooth-faced trigger make for my ideal G19. Of course swapping out triggers is just a 3 minute job, but it'd be great to buy a pistol just they way I like it.
