So I've been in the market for a Glock 19 Gen 4 but I recently saw some news about the FBI getting a Gen 5 Glock 17 (or G17M). Anyone hear any updates and if it's worth waiting for or should I simply purchase the Glock 19 Gen 4?

So far all I've hear is that the FBI is testing g17s, some supposed images and speculation.

I'm interested because lefty, I went ahead and got a 19 gen 4 because I know the vetting process will take a while and I like to make sure I get the best of the new releases.

I prefer to let the masses sort out the bad ones if there truly is such a thing.

You might find out soon. Shot Show starts the 17th of this month. If Glock wants to make a big announcement then Shot Show is where it would usually happen.

Why the gov't would want conventional rifling over polygonal is beyond me. Easily to clean and is arguably better? It's not like there shooting non jacketed bullets and reloads. I'm interested in that.

I know I'm waiting for the Gen 5.....the only flaw with Glocks TO ME are the finger grooves. Hate them.
Plenty of people out there that will remove those for you and will look like factory.
That's what I plan on doing IF I ever buy the 19. AR is next :)

Yep, they are removed from my 21SF. It would just look cleaner if it came like that from the factory.

They want that so forensic scientist can pair shot bullets with barrels.

it is easier to identify which bullet was fired from what Glock, or any gun, with conventional rifling, Metro PD (Miami FL) was I think the first LE department to require that from Glock, it's called the Miami barrel.

Makes sense. Didn't know the polygons rifling was hard to trace back to a specific barrel.

and it is funny the Miami barrel was for the off duty Glock 26 that some officers were carrying, if you are off duty and have to shoot some one in self defense, are you going to deny it was you ? government management at it's best, LOL
