Here is a statment from Glock in regards to the new Glock Gen5 pistols:

“The G17 Gen5 and G19 Gen5 pistols we are introducing next week were inspired by the GLOCK M pistols used by the FBI and include many features the GLOCK community has been asking for.  There are over 20 design changes which differentiate our Gen5 pistols from their Gen4 predecessors, including a flared mag-well, a new nDLC finish, the GLOCK Marksman Barrel, ambidextrous slide stop levers, and a grip which has no finger grooves.

GLOCK, Inc. will be announcing the launch of our new G17 Gen5 and G19 Gen5 pistols on Wednesday, August 30th.”
