The new frame design of the GLOCK 17 Gen5 removed the finger grooves for moreversatility but still allows to easily customize its grip by using the different backstraps. A flared mag-well gives the user more speed during reloading when fractions of a second matter. A reversible magazine catch, changeable at user level as well as the ambidextrous slide stop lever accommodate left and right-handed operators. The rifling and the crown of the barrel were slightly modified for increased precision.
Also available as G17 Gen5 MOS.
