Glocks are garbage, get a Sig if you want to hit something out to 50 yards.


A Glock 19 is meant for engagements much closer than that.

If you're engaging at 50m or more, use a rifle.

It's a Glock 19 with a Mullet.

I like my G19 G4 because it conceals well, the grip is the right size, and if I want more rounds I can use larger mags. The 19 is supposed to be compact...I just don't know what Glock's logic is here.

Yeah, dead right there.
It's just a bit blingy is all, had you down for Matt black or nickel.


Well I have almost 30 pistols and most at black if that helps..

It is what the military asked in the trials..

And I have to say, for whatever reason, it works.. At least for me it does.. The standard 19 grip has never been comfortable for me..

If you've got big hands get an fnp 45 tactical... It's a great carry weapon if your name happens to be Goliath...

Come on, even I have a Flat Dark Earth (also known as coyote tan) Beretta 92 S. Which also has a threaded barrel. Rounds out my 92 collection nicely. The sights are low profile but dead on. Just need to run across an original 92 F to go with the SB, M9 and 8045 Cougar which actually a Stoeger, but that makes it a little more special/rare in my book. The stainless 84 Cheetah is just icing for a 380.

But that 19X looks pretty tempting for entering a striker fired to the collection. Still wanting a FNX in 45 though. But not sure if I would like the weight of 15 rounds of 45. And having that balance change while shooting.

I like that extended beaver tail with the shorter slide. It just dresses the Glock up a bit. And just looks like it would be more comfortable.

Colour reminds me of the fictional handgun Gun from Goldeneye 64.

Does it have a shiny or matte finish? I can't tell from the photo.

It kills you (in one shot) no matter where it hits you.

Aye, but in GoldenEye we just called it cheating. LoL

Most of that went over my head

I'm in England and only ever used longs.

Yeah, but in the game you could get the golden gun, 1 shot, 1 kill.

Wouldn't a Glock 19 with a 17rnd mag and a sleeve to fill the gap essentially be the same thing? Like the sleeve the S&W shield has on it's magazine.

Best I can describe it is "Mildly Matte"

Definitely adds to the comfort of shooting it..

Kind of but not quite..

Most extended mags only support the front, ie. fingers, this supports the whole hand..

I think it's a perfectly good color.

Maybe people are confusing it with gold. This is sand colored and it is in matte. It will not reflect sunlight, so it will neither make you out nor reflect in your eyes during use. Nickle would do that and is therefore not used by professionals.

But it will blend in when in an environment it's meant for.
