Our Assessment:  The Glock 17 Gen 5 is an evolution of one of the most iconic and trusted firearms in the world, setting new standards in terms of versatility, reliability, and performance. Chambered in 9mm, this semi-automatic pistol carries a lineage dating back to the 1980s when the original Glock 17 was introduced.

The gun’s internals have also been reworked, including a redesigned trigger mechanism, which contributes to a more consistent and smoother trigger pull.

In summary, the Glock 17 Gen 5 builds on the already impressive features of its predecessors, offering enhanced accuracy, ergonomics, and functionality. Whether you are in law enforcement, competitive shooting, or simply someone looking for a reliable self-defense option, the Glock 17 Gen 5 stands as a benchmark in the 9mm pistol category.
