Glock 19

Glock 19


Glock 19 is the most proven compact semi-automatic handgun on the market today. Chambered in 9mm Luger, the Glock 19 is a versatile compact version of the standard Glock option.  It’s great for use as a backup weapon, concealed carry, or service pistol.  The Gen 5 in particular has made some great improvements which include an ambidextrous slide stop lever, flared mag-well, and upgraded barrel design, just to name a few. The G19 has been a favorite amongst police agencies and military units and for good reasons. This gun is simple to operate and easy to maintain, making it a great first gun, CCW, or home defense weapon.

final verdict

The Glock G17 features familiar Glock ergonomics and performance offering a reliable shooting performance time and time again. This gun can feel a bit clunky ergonomically and the trigger isn’t the best but that’s an easy swap. Overall, Glocks are known for their durability and reliability and the G17 is no different. This gun will keep going — rain, shine, or otherwise.
