The rear coverplate is shaped differently, the safety is shaped like a 43 but is smaller than a 43, the Striker is rounded on the 5s and flat on the 1-4s. Oddly a stripped Gen 5 slide is sometimes cheaper than a 1-4 due to demand.Glock OEM Gen 5 Slide parts Kit VERY HARD to find! Gen5 slide fits on Gen4. Slides for Gen 1-4 are either out of stock or ridiculously expensive.
Many places have Gen 5s available but theyre all bare without the internals. You can use a 5 slide on 4 or even a 3 with some modifications.
Unfortunately no one sells a Gen 5 parts Kit until now. The parts for the Gen 5 are different than previous generations so a 1-4 kit will not complete a 5.
