Brown is the new black 

 

Basic overview

 

19 length slide and barrel, 17 length grip

 

3 mags, 1 17 round mag, and 2 19 round mags

 

No finger grooves, ambi slide release, marksman barrel, nPVD slide, tan frame, glock tritium 3 dot night sights

 

Pretty much a gen 4.5.

 

Only shot 17 rounds, but ran fine for that. Will update this as i go

Glock. You either like them or you don't. Very few of us straddle the fence.
They are fine pistols for sure. Will never part with my 26 despite using it only a little. Had the 19 for a while. Funny, it is the only firearm I ever traded. Just wasn't my cup of tea. A fine shooter yes.......... but I never enjoyed it. The feel just wasn't right for me. I traded it in for a H&K VP9. Loving it, no regrets.............. Not saying the 19 isn't good though. I'd recommend it to anyone. And who knows? I may try it again someday.

Its worth trying the 19x, its a G17 frame on a G19 slide, so the gun handles better thanks to the shorter barrel and longer grip.

 

No finger grooves, aggressive texture on the grip, and a really nice barrel help a lot.

 

Size wise, this is in the same relm as the VP9/P30/PPQ, but you get 17 rounds in a standard mag.

This is IMHO the pinnacle of glocks. I'm normally not a fan of commander style guns, but the x might just convince me

Put 920 rounds though it today

 

I mixed up a few hundred rounds of speer frangible, winchester forged, Wolf wpa, 124gr hst and it ate everthing

 

Target was 25 yards out, shot with 147gr speer gold dot

2k report

 

Hit 2k today. Gun runs. And runs, and runs. 

 

Not a single instance of BTF or eratic ejection. The gun passes the test where you shoot a round with no mag in the gun

 

Finish holds up well, though i haven't done that many draws with it yet. Its not as slick as the gen 4 finish, which is nice.the barrel has lost a bit more of its finish compared to my gen 4 G19, but it isn't going to rust due to the type of finish it has.

 

Zero complaints. The trigger isn't as nice as the PPQ, but the glock is much simpler, and more consistent over high round counts without cleaning.

 

Plus i can make stupid things like this now

2500, no issues.

 

I do wany to show a few more things about the gun.

 

It has a recessed crown, so any damage done is less likely to effect accuracy

Slide stop is thicker than on previous gens, and engages the slide on both sides.

Texture is the same as gen 4 guns, but thanks to the absence of the finger grooves, it feels like I'm able to get a much better hold of the gun

 

The wire and leaf spring are gone. Everything is a coil spring. Coil springs are much more durable

The nPVD coating is amazing. That is all.

 

If you want, you can run a gen 4 slide on the 19x, and vice versa, all you need to do is swap the end plates. All the controlls on both guns work, thought the trigger on the 19x framed gun wont be as nice, and the slide will rquire a bit of wiggling to slide on20180904_062322.thumb.jpg.7604ce8623494928332a544d47cbb8cf.jpg
