    Naa. Iíve had one and donít see the point for me.

    Maybe the 19/45 have them because the recoil springs are shorter and they need the cut to get the ejection pattern Glock is after?

    I donít care about the cut all that much. I just donít want to buy a 17 without one if there are 17s out there that have them. If none of them have them then cool Iím fine without it.

    Shop local to me had both a G19,and a G17 with the cut, and a 17, without the cut, So, I think theyíre out there, but Iíd guess a lot of shops have new old stock, so, Iíd check the breechface before I purchased if youíre wanting one with the cut..

    And thatís odd, because the 17 I saw had a newer serial number compared to my 19. I got the 19 months ago and has the breech cut.

    Just thought I'd add.

    My new gen 5 mos g19 passed the 10-8 extraction test. And it is at least as accurate if not more accurate than the HKs I have. Definitely more accurate than my gen 3 g19s.

    I really prefer my gen 3 triggers though. Will my trigger lighten up with more rounds fired?

    Also is there an unofficial spring replacement schedule? I used to replace trs, slide lock, recoil etc every 7.5k but I don't see any mention of what to do on gen 5s.

    My G5 trigger lightened after about 1k rounds. It was good out of the box. Better now.

    Iím sticking to the same RSA interval that I follow with a G4 (5k rounds). For everything else, I wait until the 15k interval unless something breaks before then. I canít prove it but I think the TRS on the G5 will be less prone to failure versus the older Gens. Maybe someone with more Glock experience can comment on this.

    Glock 44

    I examined Glock 44 and was impressed. Though being the same size as a model 19, it weighs much less. The slide is a two piece structure. Bottom part is steel, and upper part is polymer. Rear sight is adjustable. Trigger pull is typical Glock. A M19 magazine will enter frame and lock in. The .22 magazine is sturdy and robust and has a thumb button to lower follower and facilitate inserting cartridges. The new Glock impressed me. If accurate, it will make an outstanding field companion. I must have one. My shop received four, and I was told that none will be Blue Label.

    Poor willpower night. Didn't feel like waiting for the layaway period to be over. Finished paying off the 19.5, ordered a bunch of fresh 147-grain HST, and a Don Hume leather holster to boot.

    Should be a fun February.

    What does the breech cut look like? Iím going to be purchasing a 19.5 soon and want to make sure itís got it.
