Glock 23 Gen 5
Glock 23 Gen 5
Glock 23 Gen 5 compact 40 S&W, equivalent of the GLOCK 19 Gen5, puts controllable power into an ideally-sized package – substantial enough for police patrol, small enough for discreet and comfortable all-day concealed carry. It is the top choice for professionals who work undercover.
With the release of the G23 Gen5 the newest generation GLOCK standard is now available in 40 S&W.
By applying the Gen5 technology this model comes with nDLC finish, a flared mag-well, the proven GLOCK Marksman barrel (GMB) and an ambidextrous slide stop lever.
Adjustable like the Gen4 model the frame of the G23 Gen5 features the Modular Beavertail Backstrap System (MBS) and comes with a reversible magazine catch.
Note: The slide width of the 40 S&W Gen5 models is slightly bigger compared to the previous generation. Please consider when choosing your holster.

The Glock pistol accessories available from the factory include several devices for tactical illumination. Hence such as a series of front rail-mounted “Glock tactical lights” featuring a white tactical light and an optional visible laser sight. An alternate version of the tactical light using an invisible infrared light and laser sight is available, designed to be used with an infrared night vision device. Another lighting accessory is an adapter to mount a flashlight onto the bottom of a magazine.
Polymer holsters in various configurations and matching magazine pouches are available. In addition, Glock produces optional triggers, recoil springs, slide stops, magazine release levers, and maritime spring cups. Maritime spring cups are designed to allow the pistol to be fired immediately after being submerged in water. They feature additional openings that allow liquids to flow and escape around them, offering enhanced reliability when water has penetrated into the firing pin assembly channel.
Magazine floor plates (or +2 baseplates), which expand the capacity of the standard magazines by two rounds, are available for models chambered for the 10 mm and 9×19mm Parabellum, .45 GAP, .40 S&W, .357 SIG, and .380 ACP cartridges. In addition to the standard nonadjustable polymer sight line, three alternative sight lines are offered by Glock. These consist of steel, adjustable, and self-illuminating tritium night rear sights and factory steel and self-illuminating tritium contrast pointer steel front sights.
