Good morning, my name is Pete and I am an unapologetic GLOCK fan. I also have to admit that I recently purchased a LNIB Gen4 GLOCK 23. Do I think that .40 S&W is making a comeback? No way. But options are always nice. On a related topic, the Gen5 GLOCK G22, G23 and G27 have officially landed on the GLOCK website. The main goal is to furnish police departments with fifth generation goodness, even if they are clinging to a forgotten cartridge.
With the current state of the guns and ammo market, finding one of these new pistols for sale is going to be a challenge. If you do see one in the wild, I’d like to know about it so drop me an email.

By applying the Gen5 technology this model comes with nDLC finish, a flared mag-well, the proven GLOCK Marksman barrel (GMB) and an ambidextrous slide stop lever.
Adjustable like the Gen4 model the subcompact frame of the G27 Gen5 features the modular backstrap and beavertail system (MBS) and comes with a reversible magazine catch to accommodate left and right-handed operators.
