New Glock 17M For The Man? FBI’s New Gun

From The Firearm Blog — It appears that some­one final­ly got their new Glock 17M duty gun in from Glock! I am inclined to believe that it is a gen­uine pho­to because our source is an offi­cer with the Indi­anapo­lis Metro Police Depart­ment, one of the first agen­cies to receive the new guns. The offi­cer that this 17M belongs to is one of the first to get the new Glock, there is no new infor­ma­tion at this time and it appears that many of the rumors have been con­firmed. Glock has not released any infor­ma­tion as of yet; we will update as we learn more.

At a glance, we can see that the rumors that the gun will be sport­ing a mag­well appear to be con­firmed. There was talk that the Glock moth­er­ship in Aus­tria wasn’t too keen on adding a flared mag­well for what­ev­er rea­son. I would love to hear the ratio­nale behind that one. The most inter­est­ing thing about the 17M below is that it appears to be a Gen 4. This seems to give the rumor that we will see a Gen 5 around SHOT 2017 more weight. The list below was leaked by an offi­cer attend­ing the Glock 17M/19M train­ing, it appears that he hit the nail on the head.

  • A new tougher fin­ish
  • Changes in the rifling
  • Longer recoil spring assem­bly
  • Rein­forced for­ward notch for the recoil spring assem­bly
  • A smoother trig­ger sim­i­lar to the G42/43
  • Flared mag­well
  • No fin­ger grooved
  • Changes in the safe­ty plunger
  • Ambidex­trous slide release
  • Mag­a­zines have an extend­ed front lip
  • Mag­a­zine well cutout

Keep a look out for more infor­ma­tion on the 17M and 19M pis­tols. I imag­ine that there will be some bet­ter pho­tos sur­fac­ing as well as a good state­ment from Glock regard­ing what changes they made.
