Gen 5 Glock vs Gen 4 Glock

Officer M. loaned us his Gen 5 Glock 17 for this video. We stacked it up against a Gen 4 Glock 34 we had in the armory.

Considering both pistols are supposed to be known for their triggers, I am surprised to say that I prefer the Gen 4 Model 34.

Is a Gen 5 trigger really an upgrade compared to a Gen 4? Or logically speaking, perhaps the Gen 5 practical – tactical Model 34 will be the greatest factory Glock trigger ever?

Was this a fair comparison? Dunno. It’s what we had in hand at the moment. But a Glock is still just a Glock. For good or ill.

Bottom line: I have no plans to upgrade from a Gen 4 to a Gen 5. The juice is not worth the trigger-squeeze.
