glock g17 handgun review
Technology of the future:
nDLC finish for barrel and slide – Glock’s nDLC provides tougher, more durable potection than previously used finishes. The nDLC finish is exclusive to the Glock manufacturing process. The nDLC finish increases protection against corrosion and scratching and improves the ability of the pistol to function in degreased or adverse conditions. The nDLC finish will be exclusive to Gen5 pistols at this time.
Removal of the finger grooves on the grip – Removing the finger grooves improves the ergonomics of the grip. The absence of finger grooves improves the ability of the pistol to deliver a consistently comfortable grip to a wider range of customers, regardless of their finger size and whether or not gloves are worn.
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.
Flared mag-well – 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’s Safe Action System makes the handgun ready for use at any time.
Three automatic independently operating mechanical safeties are built into the fire control system of the pistol and are operated by the trigger.
The safeties protect against inadvertent firing when the pistol is dropped or receives any other abnormal shocks.
Modular backstrap and beavertail system: Every Glock Gen4 and Gen5 model 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.
Enlarged reversible magazine catch: The magazine catch of the Gen4 and Gen5 frames 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.
RTF Rough textured frame surface: The Gen4 and Gen5 have a rough textured frame (Gen4 RTF) surface designed to enhance grip traction, without being too aggresive. It is present on the frame as well as on the interchangeable backstraps.
