What do you think of the Glock 19?

Postby 710 » Tue Feb 09, 2016 4:16 am

The Glock 19 is quite a popular gun and I never see hate. It hard to find a place that says bad thing because the pro always out way the cons.

It's the squarest pistol known to man. And being neutered to 10 rounds many other guns are now a better choice in my opinion.

Looks and my druthers aside the G-19 is a good reliable firearm. That said, I agree with Agust, I think there other good choices out there.

I am not a Glock fan because I think their plastic sites are disappointing for what you pay for the gun. Also, the grip just does not fit my hand the way I like it to. I can shoot them ok but there is something about the grip that does not work for me.

If the G-19 size is what you like have a look at the M&P Compact or the Ruger SR9c. The Sig 320 looks interesting as well.

Before deciding on any hand gun try it out.

I remember when the 17 came out, thought I would never buy a plastic gun.
I have a few models now, all the sights are upgraded, had to figure out what locked wrist is to shoot them well. Wear one everyday, light, dont care if it gets scratched rolling on ground under truck, or other work where I would prob remove a metal pistol till chore complete.
Ugly, not so great trigger, expensive for what it is, takes time to learn to shoot well. I have other pistols that have attributes that win across the board, but weight, size, capacity, and the durable plastic win across the board for 24/7 carry, especially the 19.

Rich, good points for sure. It is great to have so many choices that we can talk about them for a long time. Like the planes I used to fly, hand guns have unique features and designs that give them a personality of sorts. Lucky for us(so far) we get to chose one to meet our need and maybe just because we like it.

Viva la differance!

I have been shooting reloads in my Glock 19 for the past 8 years. Well over 10,000 rounds with no trouble.

I heard that the only no-no was shooting lead bullets from a Glock. Something about the polygonal rifling that required jacketed rounds.
