You have 2 tough choices there. I have a glock 19 gen 3 myself, but suprisingly....it isnt as reliable as I thought, My 19 throws casings all over the
place. Ive been hit in the face multiple times, had some bounce off the top of my head, and also had some hit me in the forehead and roll down between
my eyes and my glasses.....
As it turns out, I got one of the 19's that had a quirky ejector (the 336 one). From what I hear, some late model gen 3's and early gen 4's had
this exact problem, and eventually glock changed from the 336.
So with that aside.....Look into the exact glock 19 you are buying. Inspect the firearm you have infront of you before you buy it. Some with the 336
ejector I hear work fine, but I just had the bad luck of the draw.
As for the PPK, I have a few friends that have the PPK and they love it. I have thought about getting a Walther PPK, until I found out about the
Makarov....It's almost identical but is much cheaper.
Personally I am a fan of Russian firearms (and the Makarov is made in other European countries), and I hear extremely good reviews about them. (Plus
some of them are extremely cheap, and the 9x18 Makarov round is very cheap to). Within the next couple months, Im going to get a Hungarian PA-63 MAK,
problably at one of the next gun shows in my area. At the moment, the PA-63 can be found for $175-$200 at gunbroker.com.
