Looks like the new Glock 17 Gen 5 CO2 BB pistol, currently released by Umarex in Europe, has similar internals as the 17 Gen 3, but with the new Glock 17 Gen 5 exterior styling.

See Andy's review.

Not on my wish list. I will stick with the 17 Gen 4 & 19x.

Same for me. The gen4 is fabulous. I haven't shot it yet but the build quality is very nice.
The 19X is better than I tought it would be. I would probably get a 19gen4 if it came out.

The only part I didn't like is the ugly blister packs. I was expecting boxes like we see in Andy's reviews but all blister packs was a bit of a let down :(

Mag mechanism make's me thing of gen 3 and the Berretta M84..

Slide and trigger on the other hand remind me of the 9XP/SA40/APX witch were deceiving..

Had the 9XP, it is powerfull and quite accurate for a BB..

I agree, for me Gen 4, no contest..

I noticed the Glock 17 Gen 4 I recently picked up doesn't have the 9x19 etched into the slide like the ones reviewed by UK/Euro reviewers/sites, so, less branding and a garbage clamshell box.

Ugh, aside from that a pretty nice pistol

Yes, it is curious why Umarex Europe sells all of their Glock airguns in a nice Glock boxes, whereas Umarex USA sell them in plastic clamshell.

Is it because air pistols are sold on store shelves in USA & behind the counter in Europe?

I don't mind the missing 9X19 but the clamshells SUCKS! I was expecting my 19X to come in a nice cardboard box with a cool patch as per the AAR review... but nothing. I do like the little "tool"/smaller allen key that comes with it. It probably costs more to make than a regular key but I think it's a nice addition.
