Glock Gen 5 Launch Party this Saturday!

August 24, 2017


GLOCK dealers will be rolling out some new products on Saturday, August 26th. This will mark the fifth generation of "perfection" since GLOCKs first hit the market back in the early 1980's. How many of you plan to participate in any of these launch parties?

GLOCK fans will no doubt eagerly snap up the new guns as fast as they hit the stores. The only question remains, how many and for how long?

Like many gat owners, I plan to put my paws on one of Gaston's new generation guns to check it out, though I prefer Gen 2 and Gen 3 versions. Why? In short, I don't care for the texture of the stippling on the Gen 4s.


Of course, nobody knows for sure what improvements GLOCK has made to the Gen 5. Or if they do know, they're bound by non-disclosure agreements. This being the internet, rumors abound, and the company had done little to any quash false speculation. In fact, to the contrary, the more speculation, the less they need to spend on advertising.

Here in Illinois, the Point Blank range in Mokena will have the Gen 5s available early Saturday.  They will sell quickly, as you might imagine.  Feel free to add any other Illinois ranges hosting launch parties in comments!
