G17 Gen5 MOS – Simplified mounting of optical sights
All of the Gen5 qualities are present in this standard-size pistol: The latest GLOCK nDLC surface finish on the major metal components, unmatched in hardness and rust resistance; the high traction Gen5 frame texture, quickly reversible magazine catch, ambidextrous slide stop lever, the GLOCK Modular Backstrap System (MBS) for individual operator adjustability, the universally-acclaimed GLOCK Safe Action® System and high visibility orange magazine followers.
Do these online vendors screen who they sell the guns to? It’s kind of scary knowing you can purchase guns anywhere… never knew how easy it is to buy a gun online.. I was looking to purchase one for protection. But so much to choose from. . How do you keep safe from people who bares arms and rob folks… you can hear a lot of folks shooting theirs in my neighborhood…
The vendor itself does not handle the screening of customers, however, every firearm must be shipped to a federally licensed firearm dealer who completes the sale between the online vendor and the person making the purchase. It is at that point that IDs are checked, a background is run, and the customer is screened for eligibility.
There is no legal means of buying a firearm online without a background check before taking possession of the firearm.
I want a pistol with a short grip and a long slide. The slide is easily concealed IWB. It’s the grip which sticks out, yet all they make is the opposite.
I just got a G45 and I love it, it fits my hand perfect and it is the perfect size for concealed carry. I had a G17 that was stolen and I had a G19 that I loaned to my girlfriend. I liked the G17 but it was a bit large for concealed carry. I hated the G19, I am 6 feed tall and the grip was too short for my hand so it was hard to control. The G45 is the perfect marriage of the G17 and the G19. I cant wait to get out and shoot it my G45.
John B, –
I think Glock lacks innovation. They really haven’t made any improvements to their guns. The trigger guards are still too small, the finger groove under the trigger guard is old fashioned and inadequate, the hump at the bottom of the backstrap is still providing their pistols with ergonomics that don’t work for people who are not fan boys. And the “Marksman barrel” is a joke. No one is buying this thing for precision shooting. Glock will round the corners more on their next Gen. and call it an improvement.
When is there going to be a G19 GEN5MOS without the MOS?
Hello there, what you using for magazines? I am using a the Glock 17 magazine but however I’m getting proper feed so it ends up malfunctioning.
