Update On Gen 5 Glock Compatibility
Last week Glock announced the release of the Gen 5 Glock 17 and Gen 5 Glock 19 models. The obvious question for Apex customers is, “What does Apex make that fits the new models?” Currently, the answer to that question is nothing. The new Gen 5 models feature a new trigger bar design, a new trigger housing assembly and a new safety plunger which are not backwards compatible with Gen 3 and Gen 4 models.
This means that our current Action Enhancement Trigger Body and Trigger w/ Gen 3 Trigger Bar will not work, nor will our Action Enhancement Kit. We will need to test the Apex extractors to see if they will function properly in the Gen 5. The same is true for the Apex Performance Connector. Fortunately, we picked up a Gen 5 model the day it was released so that we could begin our R&D process. We’ll update you as soon as Randy, Scott, and Matt come up with trigger options for the Gen 5 models.
