Nice! I just picked up a gen 4 19 last Friday
I like to do buisness with my LGS instead of ordering off the net. I like to handle them before i buy them and also like to keep the money closr to home. Well I have been looking for a Gen 4 G19 and it just isnt going to happen. I refuse to spend that kind of money (619.00) at Buds or (699.00) at another place. Well I hit all the LGS (4 of them) and no G19's in either Gen 3 or Gen 4. Just my rotten luck or I thought. I cut down a road I have only used 2 times in maybe the last 5 yrs and there it was a Mom and Pops gun store. I figured what the heck I'll stop in and see what they have, there she was a Gen 3 G19 looking so sexy in the case. I asked the price thinking this is gonna cost, well it was 500.00 OTD. Didnt have the cash to pay upfront and he says if you like I'll do a 90 day lay away for ya and I said sold. He said i was lucky it was his last one and he couldnt find anymore from his supplier. Thats exactly what the other GS's said as well. Now im a happy little camper and im glad i took that cut across. 90 days and shes mine.
It makes sense, the glocks have been popular because they can handle extendo clips!!! Im sure many people instead of buying an AR bought a glock 19 w lots of extra mags, glad you got a good g19
I just traded in my XDs on a glock 19 gen3..
Even up ..the gunsmith wanted it for himself ..
I just didn't trust the XDs anymore ..
this weekend I will give the G19 a chance to earn my trust ..couple 100 rounds should do..
I was so happy to find it. I always buy the wrong gun first to open carry, they just scream "HEY LOOK AT ME" and i hate myself afterwords. My first was the Stainless Kimber, and the second was the G17 (black and fxs). This is costing me too much money, but i know its money well spent on the Glocks.
whats wrong with the XD, why dont you trust it?
The XDslim. 45 Would not always stay in battery..
Just accidentally bump slide and it would stay..
I blew 500 rounds through it to loosen it up..
no change ..lubed it..cleaned it..
Tomorrow is D-day for my new Glock 19..
So your saying it was a piece of you know what? cheaply made?
I'm only saying I feel real good about the trade and I havent even shot the Glock 19 yet
Even trade? Who did you rip off?
He is a gunsmith and friend of mine..
And We were both happy with the trade..
Does he know that you got a way better deal than him?
One gun is not always better than another, all guns can have an issue. Trust me i know i have had problems with a $1300.00 and a $500.00 gun. Its made by man it can have issues.
There is a big difference of quality between Austria and Croatia.
I was thinking of sights upgrade anyway..
I've always had 3 dot night sights..
Never tried the bucket sites..
200 rnds...and all good..
my dueling tree got a work out today..
that G19 really hits the 3in paddles nice..
and I may keep the sights ..they must work..
