Hi Guys,

I live in South Africa and we can buy Glock 19 Gen 3, 4 and 5 new here.

I am looking to purchase my first handgun and have narrowed it down to a Glock 19. I am however struggling to find sound advice on why I must buy a gen 5 as apposed to a Gen 3. The gen 3 is about 25% cheaper here and can sway my decision.

Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated. (and yes, I have listened to many youtube vids and cannot quite find the solid answer here).

Thank you

Welcome to the forum.

I have a Gen 4 and 5 versions of the 19 and like them both. The Gen 5 has the new more accurate barrel, rounded slide at the front, a larger flare at the bottom of the grip and no finger grooves. I like them both but prefer the grip on the 5 because of the lack of finger grooves.

But these are just personal preferences, to me they function identically. Do you have a pistol range that will let you test fire both generations? If not I would go with the Gen 4 and save the money.
