Glockin’ since 1993
The infamous Glock knuckle!I have a Glock19 Gen 5 and shoot my son-in-laws Glock 17 Gen 4. I really like the Gen 4 as the grooves do seem to fit my hand very well, but I bought the Gen 5 because my wife was going to shoot our Glock sometimes too and I was afraid the grooves might not be right for her hand size. She is perfectly happy with the Gen 5, and her other shooting is with a Smith and Wesson M&P 22 compact which she loves too.
The Gen 5 is just fine for both of us but I did have to take a knife and Dremel tool to smooth off the goofy magazine opening in the front of the grip. It definitely was annoying and somewhat sharp and cause irritation on my finger if I was shooting quite a bit. Interesting that Glock eliminated that on the next model the brought out.
Only other thing I might do to my Glock 19 is take a Dremel tool to the trigger guard and thin it out a little bit where it rubs on the knuckle of my middle finger if I shoot a lot. But, I don't have enough confidence to do that just yet. I did notice that Hickok45 says he does that to all of his Glocks.
Had a class awhile back and really dug a hole in my knuckle.
