If you could only ever have one gun this would have to be it. Easy to shoot, easy to strip, easy to clean, accurate, reliable, reasonably priced. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the Glock 19

Devin M. from Jackson, MS on Mon, 4 Jan 2016

Ok, thanks for the help.I didn't want to post it for sale then find out I had mis-represented it to someone.

Devin M. from Jackson, MS on Mon, 4 Jan 2016

Thanks. All I see on the slide is 9x19 and up nearer the muzzle 19 space Austria. It doesn't appear that the backstrap is removable. Would I then call it a generation 1 or 2?

Devin M. from Jackson, MS on Mon, 4 Jan 2016

I have a used Glock 19 my wife uses. How do I tell if it is a third generation or fourth etc?

William H. from Minneapolis, MN on Sat, 24 Oct 2015

Hey Crowelliski, xlearguy here, I've used Speer Gold Dots 124 grain +P hollow Points for a defense load and I can get a good group out of them. The cops around here use the same ammo in 40 cal. and also in 9mm, which is why I tried them. As with all my pistols the weapon and ammo are much more accurate than I am.

Ernest C. from Chanhassen, MN on Fri, 16 Oct 2015

bought mine used and had a problem with the striker so it was sent back to glock. they replaced the guide rod and striker and had it back in about 2 weeks, NO CHARGE,even paid the shipping. remember i was not org.owner and still no charge. gun hasnt skipped a beat since then,many thousands rounds ago.customer service was FANTASTIC. the gun has been a work horse. one of the best guns i own

Damien V. from Miami, FL on Thu, 1 Oct 2015

I just bought a G19. I was wondering if anybody could...enlighten me on some good defense ammo? thanks!

Michael P. from Naples, FL on Tue, 8 Sep 2015

The G19 / M19 (same pistol), is one of the best pistols out there. I have tested many pistols but still go back to the Glock. Their customer service, and tech supports is excellant. I recenly, puirchased a Ruger SR9, in which I had ALL failure to feed issues. As a matter of fact, I never fired the pistol. Changing ammo brand, lots, magazine, etc.. and still no fire. TG the gun shop had similar issues and allow me to get a full refund..... Concl: Glock is the weapon for me.

I've had my 3rd Gen G19 for about 2 months now. I give it a 4 and 3/4th bullet rating. The only issue I have is with the magazine release. I have to adjust my grip in order to apply enough pressure which, I've heard is a common problem with the Gen 3 Glocks. The Gen 4 fixes that problem but, I not a fan of the new textured grip. If you shoot alot it seems like the grip can rub your hands raw. Back to the review: I find the G19 to be extremely accurate and even at 25 yards. I've shot about 500 rounds so far and went through 7 different ammo's and I've found Fiocchi Pistol Shooting Dynamics 124gr FMJTC (Full Metal Jacket Truncated Cone) 9APC to be the most accurate, consistent, with less recoil than the 115gr. $12.45 per 50 and about $225 for 1000 rounds. No jams or misfeeds so far. The G19 has moderate recoil as compare to other 9mm's. More than the Sig P226 and the HK P30 but, has less recoil than the Ruger LC9 or the Kahr P9. Great for conceal and carry, light and a solid feel. 15 round magazine. If I missed anything let me know.

Eduardo L. from Athens, AL on Sat, 11 Jul 2015

I bought this gun several years ago. Accuracy is ok not great but good. Reliability is good, grips not the best. Like holding s 2x4. The looks are good. I just purchased a S&W Sigma and the feel is great in the hand compared to the Glock. Trigger is stiff compared to the Glock but for what it is intended for its fine. If you love the Glock name and want to have a gun people ooo and uaaaa over get the Glock. If you are on a limited budget or need a gun to throw in the glove box or tool box then get the smith. Its reliable, accurate and for what I paid for my 19 I could have had two smiths. I have both guns and like them both, but the smith with a great price point at 250 for SS three mags new, I keep around me more than the safe queen Glock. PS. Just got a glock factory 33rd mag from Cdnn for 34 plus a ki 15rd mag for 5.99 and free shooting glasses and ear plugs and 5.99 shipping. Great buy on these. I don't see them banning mags but I figured that I should grab just in case.

Frank G. from Prosperity, SC on Wed, 1 Jul 2015

Second and third days at the range were very educational. On the second day I put an additional 130 rd's of 124 gr +P down range. I had no problems with the gun or the three mag's that came with it. Where I did have a problem was with the underside of the trigger guard on the left side. I found that the little bump towards the rear of the guard was cutting into my finger (I like a high grip). I quick search of the Internet proved that a little time and snadpaper or Dremil tool would do the job. Day three, back at the range with the Dremil and a box of 115 gr. And we were off to making a custom trigger guard. I removed a little at a time and tested with 5 rd each time. The guard is now ok, but I found that the G19G4 did not like the 115 gr. I will continue next week with 124 gr until I have at least 600 rd. Through the gun. I already have a 3.5 trigger spring and will have a complete trigger job done by a friend of mine who is a certified Glock Armor. I am also looking into a set of Dawson Sights.. After all of the Work is completed, I will post photos. Since I carry 24/7 and usually a 1911 , having the extra rounds in one place is a nice added addition. This gun is quickly moving into the number 1 carry slot in my rotation. More to follow

Willie F. from Seattle, WA on Wed, 1 Jul 2015

Picked up a gen3 19 2 months ago and I'm very happy with it so far. I may like it better than the g22 I carry for work. I have tried/used several different compact/subcompact 9mm pistols over the years for off duty ccw and liked many but never loved one enough to keep as a regular carry piece. I still have my cougar 8000 but have sold or traded the rest. This is an excellent weapon and easier to carry than the cougar. If I don't find anything negative with it in the next several months I may stop the search for something else....or not.

Frank G. from Prosperity, SC on Tue, 30 Jun 2015

Hello All, Well, I just traded one of my Sig 239's in for a Glock 19 Gen4. I have a smaller hand and the new Gen4 fits almost perfectly without any of the additional back-starps. The reason for trading is that the trigger guard on my Sig239 was not sitting right with my high grip (I am mostly 1 1911 shooter and the SIG239 jut had to go). Range time with the G19G4 at the range yesterday proved to be interesting. First I used White Box Winchester 124 gr +P 9mm (NATO) ammo. Went through 150 rd's not one failure (NO FTF, FTE,STOVE-PIPE,ETC). Right out of the box, I used some of WIlson Oil on the rails and front of the barrel. I than added a Pearce Grip Extension +2 to one of the new mag's, loaded it up with 17 rd's and it also fired perfectly. We are now at 167 rd's so I tried some of my carry ammo Winchester 9mm +P PDX1124 gr. JHP and it also went through nice and clean with NO PROBLEMS (I stress this because I have tread on other boards that shooters have been having problems with the Gen 4 guns). I will be back at the range today and plan to put at least another 150 rd's through the G19G4. Report to follow.

Blake E. from Washington, DC on Fri, 26 Jun 2015

I have had my G19 for more than a year and have put at least 1000 rounds through it. No FTE, FTF, jams or hiccups at all. The 9mm has ample stopping power as proven by the 82% rating on one shot stops. Felt recoil is negligible (even more so since I mostly fire .40) but, Glocks stand head and shoulders above most weapons I have fired. I say this simply because every time I take aim and fire (it does) and keeps tight groups also. An awesome platform that is concealable, reliable and packs good punch for your dollar.

Merle C. from Orlando, FL on Fri, 27 Feb 2015

I don't even like Glocks anymore like I did when they first came out because I own both a Springfield XD and a Smith M&P but I have to say this model Glock is one of the best shooting models that they make and I have owned several models. This 9mm is an awesome gem and this particular model gun was made for this specific caliber. Two things Glock got right. The G19 and the G20.

Perry O. from Baton Rouge, LA on Fri, 6 Feb 2015

you should clean you mags for any gun. single stacks are tighter than doubles, therefore singles get cleaned more often. take out the follower and the spring will follow. soak the cotton mop attachment with appropriate cleaner. scrub inside, wipe clean and lube. wipe the spring and follower, lube, reassemble. helped a lot for me, in my 1911 commander. only thing i don't like is the center of balance, top heavy a better 9mm would be, beretta 84 cheetah or px4 storm.

David Q. from Rockhill Furnace, PA on Sat, 3 Jan 2015

Wharbin, I would definitely go with the Glock...and probably the 19. I think the quality levels are about the same, as well as accuracy. however, the glock does it in a smaller package, and a lighter weight.

Edmund C. from Tampa, FL on Thu, 27 Nov 2014

My wife just doesn't show her G19 any love. I am pretty sure that when I took my Sig out of the safe today to bring it to the range that I heard her G19 whimper. Fortunately, I am not so cold hearted. Like Doria said, you can put any old crap thru a Glock. I shot 100 rounds of WWB thru it today but i am pretty sure you could put nuts, bolts, bb's, ball bearings and just about anything else thru this G19. This will never be my favorite gun to shoot. IMO, it is not nearly as good looking, nor as much fun, nor as accurate, nor as powerful as my Sig P220C Equinox. In fact, I think Glocks are butt ugly. Despite all that, this is the gun I most recommend when friends ask me for a suggestion for personal protection. I trust it with my wife's life which is the highest praise I can give any weapon.

Bart H. from Boynton Beach, FL on Thu, 20 Nov 2014

By far my favorite Glock.

Patrick M. from Winona, KS on Sun, 19 Oct 2014

My first love was when I was blessed with a glock nineteen and 33 round magazine for $300.00. I can handle a 40 caliber recoil no problem. So the 9mm was easy to get a grip on and start out with nice tight groups on the target. Some think the 33 round clip is a over kill but it really saves time at the range from re loading.

Glock 19 Questions & Comments



Carl A. from Buffalo, MN on Fri, 1 Jul 2016

so, what is the difference between a gen 3 and a gen 4? how would you know what generation it is? ---

Frank F. from Warsaw, MO on Mon, 7 Mar 2016

TJS, Very good, simple post! I have had a G-19 for many Yrs now, and it's the most reliable Weapon I own!

Frank G. from Prosperity, SC on Mon, 4 Jan 2016

The easy way is that the slide has Gen4 next to 19. A second way is if it has a double recoil spring and the third way is I'd it has interchangeable back straps.

Thanks Guys. This is my second Glock but the first one I bought was used. This breaking a gun in stuff is new to me.

William H. from Minneapolis, MN on Sat, 7 Nov 2015

geebrad - the copper (gold) stuff is an automotive ant-seize compound that you can purchase at any NAPA or automotive parts store. Some folks put it on spark plugs and such. I believe Glock puts it on for a break in period but it'll eventually wear off and not to worry just use the pistol lube or grease you've been using. I clean and lube my Glocks after every time I shoot them. The Glock will fire thousands of rounds without ever being cleaned, but then your car would run for thousands of miles without you changing the oil and filter. So I recommend cleaning and lubricating your Glock after you shoot it and after several thousand rounds the gold/copper colored compound will eventually wear off and does not need to be replaced.

Bryan R. from Rahway, NJ on Fri, 6 Nov 2015

@geebrad I've had my 19 for about four months now. I've shot around 2,100 rounds threw it with no jams so far. I go to range on average twice a week and shoot a box of 50 each time out. With that being said, I use a Kleenbore classic handgun kit to clean my 19 after everytime I go out and I still have slight traces of the "copper colored stuff" under the slide. It hasn't hurt anything so far and I figure it will just wear away with usage. Hope this helps.

Fernando L. from Frederick, MD on Tue, 3 Nov 2015

Just got my G19 and put 150 rds thru it with no problem as expected. However when do I clean the copper colored stuff under the slide that the factory put on it? I read after the break-in of 200-250 rounds so it can work its way into the metal???? Clean it now or put another 100 rds through. Please advise, thanks.

Keith C. from Chisholm, MN on Wed, 28 Oct 2015

So I'm planning of purchasing a G19 as an occasional carry (I own a Sig P226, great gun, but a bit big/heavy for carrying). I also want to get some good personal defense ammo, and I am debating between Cor-Bon 115gr 1350 fps and Speer Gold Dot 124gr. Any thoughts/recommendations?

Walter C. from Perryville, MD on Fri, 16 Oct 2015

I like the M&P as well as the various options it brings to the table. Still the Glock is cheaper. When Smith reps tried to make sales for LEA, a guy would come out, leave a pistol for evaluation to be pickup later and say this is the price. Glock would leave the pistols permanently, give out Glock gear and deal, including using trade ins in the final purchase price.

Walter C. from Perryville, MD on Fri, 16 Oct 2015

Service after the sale is one of the many reasons Glock rules.

Blake E. from Washington, DC on Sun, 4 Oct 2015

@Crowellski... There are way too many to list by brand but... Most of the experts (or so called) say use between 124 gr and 127 gr hollow point, hydra-shok or whatever the company refers to it's specific round. They say any lighter round is inconsistent and the heavier ones tend not to achieve the speed needed to expand properly. The best suggestion is to fire as many as you can and determine which you like best... bullets are made to kill something and all will. Just a matter of which you like!

Bryan R. from Rahway, NJ on Mon, 28 Sep 2015

WOW, that video is sick, LOL....... I thoroughly enjoy the skit. Too bad anger, the lack of intelligence and lack of sense of humor got the guy so much negative response. Even if he didn't have the message at the bottom of the video, you should still be able to pick up on the sarcasm in his voice. Just remember everyone. Stupidity is a DISEASE......... And it's contagious!!! Be safe, stay protected. ;)

Wayne D. from Centralia, WA on Tue, 22 Sep 2015

WHAAAA HAAAA HAAAA. You guys have got to watch this video. Ed, this is the kind of post you should have been making all along. It's funny but not malicious or venomous.

Blake E. from Washington, DC on Tue, 22 Sep 2015

@edteach2u... That's hilarious!!! All I can say about that is WOW!!!

Eduardo L. from Athens, AL on Mon, 21 Sep 2015

Glock 19 review by Whitehood. Can't miss this its priceless.

Wayne D. from Centralia, WA on Sun, 20 Sep 2015

I purchased a Glock 19 generation 4 a while back. I think it's a great pistol. 1) It's accurate 2) dependable 3) light and easy to carry 4) Easy to clean. I can understand why this pistol is rated as one of the best. The only things I don't like about it is the texture of the grip. It's not particularly comfortable, but it is easy to grab and hold on to. Even with the dimples on the grip this is one sweet shooting 9mm. I have shot around 400 rounds through it without any problems.

Blake E. from Washington, DC on Sun, 6 Sep 2015

@BradLe... I have the G19 Gen 3 RTF and, I haven't had any problems with the new textured grips. They're actually really comfortable for me. I also own the Gen 4 G22 and you're right, they did correct the mag release issue in the Gen 4's. I really enjoy shooting the Glock pistols... I own 4. @edteach2u... As, I said above I own 4 Glocks and have never had any issues with the accuracy. I am able to get groups the size of a half dollar up to 15 yards and a 3 inch group up to 25 yards. I challenge any moderate shooter to better that with any handgun... I have shot most brands except H&K. I think accuracy also depends alot on the shooters tendencies... All guns are fairly accurate.

Wayne D. from Centralia, WA on Thu, 3 Sep 2015

That is a great deal. That's somewhere around $200 worth of extras.

Steve T. from Moorefield, WV on Thu, 3 Sep 2015
