New Product Announcement: GLOCK 17 Gen4 and GLOCK 22 Gen4
The new Gen4 has several new features designed to satisfy the most demanding consumers. It is based on a full G17/G22 MBS (multiple backstrap) Frame with a reduced Short Frame trigger mechanism housing offering a fully operable pistol.
The multiple backstrap system allows the user to change the circumference of the grip to fit their individual hand size. The grip has three options; a short frame version, medium frame or large frame that are easily changed and secured with a single pin. The smallest backstrap is integrated in the G17 MBS reducing the trigger distance of the standard size G17/G22 frame by 2 mm. The medium back strap is a 2 mm back strap offering equal size of a standard G17/G22 frame. The large back strap is a 4 mm backstrap. Biggest advantage is that the grip angle of the GLOCK “Safe Action” Pistol is constant and not changed by back strap modifications.
This ensures that the shooter does not shoot high or low when modifying the backstrap or when shooting with a different GLOCK Pistol.
The magazine release catch of the Gen4 is reversible and enlarged. The reversible magazine catch allows users to switch access of the catch to the left or right side of the pistol with no additional parts.
Internally, the original recoil spring has been replaced with a dual recoil spring assembly. The dual recoil spring assembly noticeably reduces the recoil while simultaneously increasing the life cycle of the assembly.
Rough Textured Frame (Gen4 RTF) surface
Additionally, the Gen4 has a new Rough Textured Frame (Gen4 RTF) surface designed to enhance grip traction and is present on the frame as well as the interchangeable backstraps.
