GLOCK Gen5 Technology

nDLC finish on barrel and slide

GLOCK‘s nDLC provides tougher, more durable protection than previously used finish. The nDLC finish is exclusive to the GLOCK Gen5 models. The nDLC finish increases protection against corrosion and scratching and improves the ability of the pistol to function in adverse conditions.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology

Ambidextrous slide stop lever

The ambidextrous slide stop lever makes it easier for gun owners to quickly, safely and comfortably manipulate the slide whether they are left-handed or right-handed.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology

Flared mag-well for speedloading

The larger opening of the flared mag-well makes it easier to funnel the magazine into the mag-well, particularly in high-stress situations where fractions of seconds matter.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology

Versatility by removal of the finger grooves

Comfortable grip to a wider range of consumers, regardless of their finger size.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology

GLOCK Marksman barrel

The GLOCK Marksman barrel (GMB) features enhanced barrel rifling based on the proven polygonal barrel design which delivers improved accuracy.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology

Safe Action® System

Three safeties disengage sequentially as the trigger is pulled and automatically reengage when the trigger is released.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology

Safety advantage through orange follower

The orange follower allows the shooter to clearly see if there are any rounds left in the magazine or not.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology

Enlarged floor plate

The enlarged front of the floor plate makes it easier to pull the magazine free of the pistol if it doesn't fall free during a malfunction or reload.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology

Magazine capacity

Depending on caliber and size of the pistol model high capacity magazines are available.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology Backstrap and beavertail

Customizable frame size

Every GLOCK Gen5 comes with backstraps in two sizes each one with or without beaver tail. The multiple backstrap frame allows the users to change the circumference of the grip to fit their individual hand size.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology

Gen4 RTF - Rough textured frame

The Gen4 proven rough textured frame surface is present on the Gen5 frame as well. It was designed to enhance grip traction, without being too aggressive.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology

Enlarged reversible magazine catch

The magazine catch of the Gen5 frame is reversible and enlarged towards the rear of the pistol. The reversible magazine catch is more user friendly to the shooter's reach and allows them to switch the catch to the left or right side of the pistol.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology

Mounting rail

Mounting rails in front of the trigger guard allow mounting accessories such as tactical lights and lasers.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology

Polymer frame

The durable and lightweight polymer frame absorbs recoil due to the dampening characteristics of the polymer.

GLOCK Gen5 Technology

Loaded chamber indicator

Visible and palpable indicator as part of the extractor to show whether there is a cartridge in the chamber.

GLOCK Gen4 frame sizes

Customize your frame size

Every GLOCK Gen5 pistol model allows the user to change the circumference of the grip to fit the individual hand size and comes with two sizes of backstraps in two different shapes. The backstraps are easily changed and secured to the frame with a single pin offering the following options: a short frame (SF) version, a medium (M) and a large (L) version.
The medium and the large version can be chosen with or without beaver tail, the beaver tail backstraps keeping large hands clear of the slide.
The short frame (SF) version without any backstrap mounted still remains a complete fully functional frame. Its dimensions are smaller than previous generations.
