Despite the best efforts of Chicagoland traffic and Michigan road debris, I made it for the first day of the NRA Carry Guard Expo at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee today. My first stop? The GLOCK booth, as rumors abounded that a Gen 5 GLOCK pistol would be available.
I spoke with GLOCK’s Gene Hacker who confirmed that the rumor was true…just premature. The much anticipated Gen 5 GLOCK will make an appearance tomorrow morning. What’s different about it?
“You’ll know what’s different as soon as you see it,” Gene said with a smirk.
Our friends at Ammoland.com got a first look at the new pistol and put some rounds through it,
GLOCK has apparently shaved off the much-maligned finger grooves for the Gen 5 guns along with a few other evolutionary changes both external and internal. Stay tuned, more tomorrow.
