    Every picture I've seen shows a smooth faced trigger.

    Yes, the 19 comes with the smooth faced trigger.

    I ran 320rds. out of my gen. 5 19 this morning. Ejection was good so far. I really like the smooth front strap. I'll do a more in depth review of it later when I have a bit more time.

    Back from my first trip to shoot the new gun.
    I know there were a bunch of satisfied P320 owners until someone on youtube dropped it- but if the Gen5 continues to perform like it did today- then I am thrilled.
    I am in no way certified to take anything apart- much less a gun- so most of my observations may not satisfy a lot of technical questions.
    The trigger face is smooth and the trigger safety works no different than the Gen 4. The trigger is not even in the same game as the stock Gen 4 triggers. I do not see any reason to swap out the trigger for my own personnel use. The new trigger is pretty stiff and I have been shooting VP9, 9SK, and G19 with Evo Elite connector- so it will take a bit getting used to. I actually flinched a couple times due to the stiffness of the trigger, pulled a shots off target. But- it is really so much better than anything I have ever seen from Glock. I don't have anything to measure the weight and the trigger isn't as light as the VP9 or PPQ, but it is really good. I look forward to reading what good shooters think .
    The stock sights sit higher than the stocks sights I had on my Gen 4 G19. I am hoping that my Gen 4 Ameriglo Hackathorn sights fit on the Gen 5. I think they do- and I will switch them out. However- for those who just don't change out their stock sights- these are better.
    No issues with ejection......almost- I had one round go straight back, but it didn't hit me in the face. I was shooting 115gr Blazer- not the best ammo- but I have found it reliable after a few thousand rounds through multiple pistols.
    Round count:
    150 Blazer Brass 115gr- one ejection straight back- do I count that as BTF- well........it didn't hit me so I will be generous for now.
    50 Federal 147gr HST which is my carry ammo. Awesome ejection on this- I could have put a bucket down and collected most of my expended brass.
    10 Holmes 115gr Reloads- I finished my day blowing through a 10 round mag- no issues.
    So- fresh out of box, not even a wipe down (thinking I may just go to 2,000 unless someone says it may cause issues without cleaning anything off from the factory), and 0 malfunctions.
    One nice thing- I like the orange on the new mags. Makes round count easy.
    If anyone wants some basic pics- let me know. Again- not an armorer in any way shape or form, but I can field strip it and do a Gen 4 vs Gen 5 comparison. Let me know.

    Overall very happy, but can't wait until GJM, Voodoo Man, and others send in their comments.
    Every day in transportation makes me feel like I brought a toothpick to a gun fight.

    My question for those that handled one, particularly the 19, is the front U mag cutout noticeable while gripping the gun? Is it uncomfortable, or do you even notice it?
    Makes the 19 a go-to for me as my pinkie goes right into the hole. Makes my grip feel weird and can't imagine not having discomfort when firing. I have small hands and skinny fingers FWIW.

    I didn't notice it at all. My pinkie rests very comfortably on the lip of the magwell. I actually like not having the finger grooves. I really had no idea how much the finger grooves bothered me until this morning.

    Couple more quick thoughts
    No finger grooves is a massive upgrade
    The Gen 5 fit in my JMCK IWB 3 for the G17, but not my AIWB 2.5 for G-17 Gen 4.
    Perfect fit in my Gen 4 DSG Arms IWB holster for Gen 4 G19.

    I had the immediate thought eyeballing the 17 that you'd lose the new magwell flare. The magwell is nice.

    Agreed. I forgot to mention the magwell earlier: that thing really is like the mouth of a leopard.

    I didn't notice the mag lip cutout, but A) I have skinny fingers, and B) 20 rounds isn't much.

    Has anyone tried to put a gen4 slide lever into their gen5?

    I assume it won't work but I'd like a better alternative than just dremeling off the nonused ambi slide release. I know there will be one available on the market any minute now though.
