Just did it. No idea why. I have other 9mms. But, I think you guys finally convinced me I had to try one. I'm holding W.E.G. responsible actually.
He's the one I'll direct the wife to be pissed at anyway.:wink:
This 3rd generation 19 was used on the shelf at the local "Toy" store. Nice shape except for a couple minor blemishes on the slide. Wit the box, 2 mags and a new "butt" pug for that Glock hole, plus tax $ 425 OTD.
I won't be able to get to the range till probably Wednesday.

Oh hell yeah!

Now you gotta take it out and play.

I took mine to a fudd-match this morning.

Normally I just carry the Glock and 5 or 6 mags around in and old tube sock.

Busted out the spastical nylon today.
Gotta work on those 25-yard shots, and the left-hand-only shots.

Are your fingers supposed to fit on, or in, those finger-groovy things ?
If in, their "model" must have a pretty small paw.:wink:
My pinky is half in the breeze.
Are those magazine extensions worthwhile ?
Any problems with using them ?

I cleaned it up. I ended up having to open ? the package the manual was in to find out how to disassemble, reassemble, do the safety checks etc.
Either the previous owner was familiar with Glocks, or never disassembled it. :rolleyes:

Any other Glock "must-haves", other than more magazines, holster, etc ?

The G17 grooves fit me perfectly.
The G19 does not fit my hand the way I would like.
That gap between the floorplate and the grip body on the G19 pinches my finger shot-to-shot.
They make a "gapper" floorplate for Glock mags that is supposed to alleviate the pinch experienced by most folks with the G19.

The above pic exaggerates the floorplate.
In the pic above, that's a standard G17 mag in a Gen 3 G17.
No extended flooplate.

I only use the extended floorplate on the G26.
For the G26, the +2 floorplate gives a better grip, and more ammo.

I see those 3.5 lb trigger connectors from a couple sources.
Lots of difference in price too.
Easy to install ?

Also, I was eyeballing the stainless steel, captured spring guide rods.
Worth while ? Reviews seem pretty positive.

The Glock is perfect for its intended purpose in its stock configuration.

You can hang other crap on it if you want to make it less perfect.

You for damn sure don't need some stainless steel guide rod.
That's steel guide rod is just shit that some P.T. Barnum is hawking to people who can't get their mind around the idea that the Glock is not some fugking 1911 that you need to spend a grand on before you can even start thinking about whether its actually action-ready.

November 07, 2009, 18:54
the ghost connector is popular but most of all of them do the job well. One good thing about glock is that parts are cheap. I changed to 3.5lbs and a .25 trigger job and love it. just my personal feelings. Some people like to go stock and other like the 8.5 pull for carry. All personal preference

i went xd9 for my plastic wonder pistol thanks to the fact that i could fit ruger, beretta, and just about any other non glock mags to it. 22 dollars later i had 8 check mate m9 mags, and a little time with my pencil grinder dotco and a small triangle file, i had a 8 more hi cap mags for less than the price of a box of ammo.

Pinky grips been known to disassemble the mag while you CCW; extension seems to provide enough leverage/wear (esp when you IWB) it to pry it off the bottom of the mag. 9mm subcompact (G26) is not too much to handle in stock form.

I hate the Glock compact finger grooves, the top one gave my hand a permanent blister during academy firearms weeks. I wish they'd make a groove-less model. SOME people choose to do a "boob reduction" and sand off the groves with a file or belt sander. No joke.

My two favorite holsters are the Kramer Belt Scabbard (FBI cant) and Milt Sparks Versa Max 2 for IWB.

IMHO, the only thing you need to do to a Glock is install night sights...

I run all my triggers stock with the exception of the G23 I carry. That one has a stock 5# connector with a NY1 spring. I tried the Ghost 3.5# connector, but I think it's too light for a working handgun. If you're just going to play at the range, it's probably OK, though. Install takes about 5 minutes.

You can get factory-built Glocks with night-sights already installed.

I understand some folks prefer different brands of night-sights than what come on the factory-equipped model.

kerplode
November 09, 2009, 16:12
Absolutely! I don't have any direct experience with the factory nights, but I imagine they'd be fine. My G19, G23, and G27 all wear Meprolight nights. I think I like them better than Trijicons. Still need to get a set for the G20...

November 09, 2009, 16:23
When I was firing my Glock at sunrise this past weekend, the sun was directly behind me, and was bearing-down against the back of my night sights. First time I'd ever fired it under such bright light from that angle. Big glare off the lenses covering the tritium capsules on the rear sight. Nothing to slow me down much after the initial surprise, but first reaction was definitely, "Whoa!.... WTF?!!!"

November 09, 2009, 18:37
I've got a set of these on my 17.Theyre an awesome sight.I went with trijicon on my 19,just due to the smaller profile making it easier to carry concealed.Less to get hung up on and for the purpose,they work just fine.
Either way I think its a good idea swapping out the factory sights for aftermarket.

bykerhd
November 10, 2009, 18:21
I got to the range today.
The Glock ran perfectly with the couple of boxes of cheapo(use to be anyway) Remington FMJs I ran through it.
The rear sight needed some tweaking for me. I had to use "Kentucky" windage at the range to compensate.
Recoil was surprisingly mild for such a light pistol.

Overall, I was pretty happy with the Glock.
The trigger is fine as is and won't get messed with.
The sights may get changed out as I had a hard time seeing them.
No magazine extensions, etc. will get added as the length of the grip was fine in use.
The finger groovy things look nice and rank right up there with "tits on a bull" for usefulness, and probably effectiveness too.:tongue:

The Glock won't replace the other 9mms. But, it now is officially part of the clan.:wink:
I even bought it one of those 33 round magazines as a reward for it's performance today.:biggrin: Now it won't be envious anymore of that picture of the Glock sporting that BIG magazine that mitchellh posted.:tongue:

Hello Folk's,
I am not exactly sure what question to ask here.
I am retired Army. I am experienced and qualify w/o problem's on many weapon's that include revolver's and limited Semi's.
I purchased a Glock 19 approx 4 month's ago. I have went to the range 3 time's since and find in each situaton, that I cannot hit the broadside of a barn w/ the Glock.
The Glock has EVERYTHING updated. It has new steel site's, which I DO NOT like, it has the adjustable trigger I believe down to 2 1/2 lb's but I keep it at the 5# setting which seem's fine.
I go to the range, I am kick azz on every weapon I own including revolver's, rifle's, shotgun's, but for whatever reason, I cannot hot dog pooh with this Glock. I at this point keep it b/c I know of it's capabilities ONLY.
However, I have a friend that has NO PROBLEM with my Glock, which tell's me that the problem is ME. Why am I having prolem's on the Glock but none of the other weapon's?
Any idea's??????? speedy7201 at aol dot com

Thanks

A friend of mine gave me his 19 a couple of years ago, young kids and his wife wanted it out of the house. I was not a Glock guy, but I am a gun guy, so I took it. I had successfully avoided the whole Glock thing since day one, content with my 1911's and S&W semi-autos for carry and range duty. I did a little research on the Glock after getting it home and found that it is a very well regarded pistol and considered by many to be "the best compact carry pistol in the world". Well, those are pretty big words and of course I was skeptical. After a few trips to the range to familiarize myself with the pistol and how it shoots (and boy does it shoot) I figured let me get a holster and see how this thing does carry. I hate to admit it, but this little gun IS the best carry pistol I have ever owned. I still like my M&P .40 for everyday protection, but there are many times when the little Glock just fits the situation better. Glovebox, console, pocket, IWB, SOTB, there is no place this pistol does not fit comfortably. Oh yeah, I have read over the years about how 9mm is not the ideal personal defense round, stopping power, blah, blah, blah....but there is a certain comfort to having 16rds of Black Talon ready to go, nestled under your jacket on your hip. And the guns do go "bang", every time you pull the trigger. Amazing.

Be safe. Enjoy.

Unless of course you are one of the 30% who have had the ends of their plastic guide rods break. I have three Glocks and over the course of eight years all of them have broken their OEM guide rods during normal firing sessions.

Sure they weren't broken as in non-functional, but broken to the extent that I didn't want to take the chance of the spring coming off the guide and royally jamming the pistol.

That will happen when the guide rod isn't properly seated in the notch on the barrel lug.
Don't do the butt plug on a Glock! How are you supposed to "rip and strip" in case of a round over ftf? The hole in the back of the grip is there for a reason.
If you have to use a 3.5lb connector, get the factory OEM one from glockmeister.com the aftermarket ones tend to be soft and can cause failure to fire when worn.

So, how did you determine this "spring guide rod misplacement" was the culprit? I assume you purposfully misplaced the guide rod in a number of pistols, fired one shot, and then disassembled them to find a broken guide rod to test your hypothesis. That is the only way you could have tested your claim.

Since you obviously did all this research, how many millimeters does it have to be out of the pocket for the rod to break? By my calculation, it can only be out of the pocket by about 2-3 mm before the "incorrect placement" becomes self correcting by way of contact between the guide rod and the frame (i.e. you can't reinstall the upper/slide if the end of the guide rod sticks down too far). Is 0.5 mm okay, or will that cause it to break also? Does the back of the rod move during firing? If so, how much does the rod move during firing?

Secondly, how did you determine that the "operator" had improperly installed the guide rod? Did you watch them install it wrong, and then see it break? You used an X-ray on the pistols you didn't physically see assembled yourself, right? After all, that's the only way you could have looked at the position of the guide rod in the pistol without taking it apart. As someone who has "tended to over 250 Glock 22/23 and in 12 years" you would know that the simple act of the disassembling the pistol will cause the guide rod and spring to move down out of the notch due to friction between back of the guide rod and the slide release lever.

So again I ask you, how did you determine that Glocks can be broken by a 2-3mm misplacement of the spring guide rod? I am sure everyone here is very curious.

BTW, I may not be a gun smith, but I know how to stick a guide rod into a pistol and make sure its in the correct position.

Your insinuation was that I don't know how to operate a 1911, or that I had a "butchered" pistol, neither of which is true.

My original statement is valid and true. I have had more malfunctions with 1911-design pistols than I have ever had with a Glock. Maybe your buddy got a lemon. It doesn't make the design flawed, or the 1911 a better pistol.

I have a Kimber Desert Warrior right now that I just frickin' love. Sure, its finicky with the ammo it will feed, but its works a hell of a lot better at knocking down bowling pins at competitions than my Glock 17s.

I also have a Kimber Ultra Covert II that won't feed hollow points. Neither will my dad's. So much for a hard hitting 1911 CCW in .45.

December 12, 2009, 09:37
To get back on topic...

I have a 1911 in the bedside table, but I carry the G19 most of the time. Why? Because I almost never felt comfortable carrying the 1911 over the course of 20+ years with just the single 7-8 rnd mag. I always wanted at least 1 spare. The G19 I frequently carry with no spare mag, and while I do have a double mag carrier I rarely have used it. Even when I want a little extra, 1 spare is plenty. It'll put the rounds where I want them and with modern high performance HP's I don't think that you can put a good 40S&W or 45ACP HP in someone where it would do the job and a good 9mm wouldn't. Ball ammo I want a .45 (or a .46!), but with Gold Dots or Ranger +P I'm fine with a 9! It costs me about $120 to load 1000 124gr HP practice rounds that are within 40fps of the Rangers and are POI concurrent. I shoot that up about every 6-8 weeks. (BTW, I have more than 10 THOUSAND rounds on my G19, no broken guide rod. Yet.)

You've got to start somewhere jdluton. Not a bad place to start.
If you've never shot a handgun before, do yourself a favor and get a .22 so you can afford to do some practice to learn the do's and don'ts and maybe even how to hit something. .22 won't beat you up like some centerfires and is a whole lot easier on your budget to practice with.

Get some extra magazines for that Glock while you still can. CDNN has about the best price around for real Glock, not Korean !!!, magazines.

A Glock was the first pistol I ever purchased as well.

Don't let this first purchase cause you to loose your sense of reality. I ended up selling the GLock 21 I purchased because I discovered later on, when I was more "firearms mature," that it was just too big for my hand. So, I tried another pistol, and then another, and then another, until I found what truly fit my hand. Now I have a variety of pistols.

I use the Glock 17 when I shoot a match that requires long strings of fire and I want to minimize reload time. I use the 1911 when the match necessitates a larger caliber weapon, such as the bowling pin shoots I mentioned previously.

For personal defense I just use my fists. :wink:

Anyone that know's the total capabilities of a Glock. If you Do NOT, just Google (search) the Glock capabilities. Watch some video's, read some website's, speak with someone you trust ONLY.
In ANY situation, the Glock can be the BEST friend you have no matter what caliber you have.
It's simplicity make's it the number one choice for most anyone.
The Glock is one of the ONLY handgun's/pistol's that you may have to have a Class III license for. Depending on it's setup and you having that license ONLY. ONLY an idiot would ignore the license requirement.
I have watched the video's online of people that have the Class III Glock and license and it amaze's me everytime what these gun's are capable of.
I would love to apply for the license but I've heard that it can be a pain in the azz and expensive to receive.

Fr. Vince

Its not knock down power, its too much velocity and the inability to dump all the energy into a target that is at most five inches in diameter. Nines have too much speed and travel through the pins. Even hollow points were traveling all the way through pins. The 45 on the other hand doesn't penetrate all the way through, and thus dumps all of its energy into the pin.

There was a guy with a 44 mag who had a hard time getting the pins off the table due to velocity issues and over penetration.

I love it. I have a G26, but i've been thinking about adding a 19 to the lineup. The 33rd mag with the G26 is just crazy fun. I just can't believe how fun the 26 is, even with its small size. So much power and versatility in such a small package.

per "Butch" at http://glocktalk.com/forums/showpost.php?p=14733781&postcount=2
Early Glock +2 caps did not have a retainer in them and careless, forceful insertion of the magazine, or a sufficiently hard impact on another object could knock the extension off the mag, but the current + caps are much more secure and quite functional.

The old style is on the right:

Is this a liability thing if you were to use the gun in self defense, or what?

Thanx in advance...

Liability thing from Glock. Make sure you use Glock OEM connectors, some of the early after market 3.5lb connectors were soft and caused malfunctions. The ones I have bought from glockmeister were Glock factory connectors.
