What gen of Glock 19?


Recommended Posts

I am thinking either a gen 3 or gen 5, any reason to go one way or another?

The Gen 5s are a little bit more '$' but come with a better trigger and an extra mag. I have owned quite a few gen 3s and put about 200 or so rounds through a gen 5.

What is your take on the different generations of Glock?

Comes down to personal grip preference, more than anything else, until you get to the Gen 5 trigger.  Triggers are easy to change, though, and the aftermarket is flooded with them.   After shooting an original Glock 17, and that first round pull, I hated all Glocks forever - until I tried a 19X.  Then I had to have it.

IMO the Gen3 is the best Glock made, it has the largest amount of 'stuff' available for it, add a $5 'minus' connector and the trigger is leagues ahead of either the Gen4 or 5 triggers.

Again IMO, the only advance that Glock has made with the Gen4&5 is the ambi features and if you're not a lefty I'd go with the Gen3
