In August 2017, Glock unveiled the "fifth generation" or "Gen5" Glock 17 to the real steel world. The revisions centered on ergonomics and improving reliability. Many parts of fifth-generation Glock pistols cannot be interchanged with those of the previous generations. The two fifth-generation models announced were the Glock 17 and Glock 19, chambered for the 9x19 mm Parabellum. Some conspicuous changes on the fifth-generation models are ambidextrous slide stop levers, DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) surface finish for barrel and slide, a barrel featuring a revised style of polygonal rifling (called the "Glock Marksman Barrel" by Glock), a deeper recessed barrel crown, omission of the finger grooves on the grip, a flared magazine well, and a reintroduction of a (half-moon shaped) cutout on the bottom front of the grip. The locking block pin located above the trigger pin that was introduced in the third-generation is omitted. Many internal parts were less conspicuously revised.
"Gen 5" is roll marked on the slide next to the model number to identify the fifth-generation pistols. The magazines were also revised for the fifth-generation models. The redesigned magazine floor plates feature a frontward protruding lip to offer grip for manual assisted extraction and the magazine follower became orange colored for easier visual identification.
The airsoft version faithfully replicas the same features externally. The pistol works on regular green and fires with a crisp, fast cycle. The added benefit of this being a licensed product is that it can also work with many other accessories designed for Glocks such as weapon lights, holsters, etc. without having to worry if your pistol will be to spec. Most importantly, the Gen 5 Glock features the latest system which boasts incredible recoil impulse, easy to adjust hop-up, and extreme gas efficiency!
Being a fully licensed product, all the corresponding markings are the same as what you will find on the real firearm. As of this writing (2020), the Glock 17 Gen 5 is only released in the European and Asian markets. US customers seeking the latest Glock 17 Gen 5 can order from here (UMAREX is the German parent company of Elite Force. Elite Force in the US, and Umarex, are essentially the same.

Perfect training tool. I shoot the real G17 Gen 5 on a regular basis but having this allows good training at home. In addition, it fits all the G17 holsters from Aliengear to Trex Arms. It's worth noting the trigger has a lighter pull than the real G17 Gen 5, however the staging, break, and reset are spot on. Overall it's well worth the money.
