The new frame design of the GLOCK 17 Gen5 removed the finger grooves for more versatility but still allows to easily customize its grip by using the different Beavertail Backstraps. The slide has the superior GLOCK hard-surface nDLC finish in non-reflective black. It comes with front serrations (FS) which provide an additional tactile surface choice when manipulating the slide giving the operator positive traction even with wet or sweaty hand.
The flared magwell of the frame gives the user more speed during reloading when fractions of a second matter. A reversible enlarged magazine catch, changeable at user level as well as the ambidextrous slide stop lever accommodate left and right-handed operators.
Every G17 Gen5 features the match-grade GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) delivering increased accuracy with polygonal rifling and an improved barrel crown.
