    Good Article On Glock

    Is Glock The Perfect Gun Company? - AllOutdoor.com

    Regardless if you like Glock's or not. This article brings home some very good points. Especially in regard to magazines. For example, I didn't know that few, if any of the Springfield XD magazines between the, XD, XDm and XDm mod 2, would not interchange. That's just nuts, to have to run out and replace a bunch of expensive magazines, because you happened to upgrade to the next generation of the same pistol.

    Several other manufacturers are guilty of the same thing. Mostly in an effort to get you as the consumer to spend more money on new magazines. When in fact they could have just as easily designed the next generation of their pistols to accept the same magazines.

    While I wouldn't go so far as to say, "Why Buy Anything Besides A Glock?", I have to agree that keeping that guns features standard through over 30 years of production has certainly helped it's sales and success. Not to mention fewer parts that can be replaced by most anyone. I doubt that with the exception of perhaps the AR-15 platform of rifles, there is another firearm currently in production that can make that claim. The success of Glock certainly proves that, if it proves anything.
    I don't need my AR-15 "Assault Rifle" any more than Rosa Parks needed to sit in the front of the bus.

    I went with a Glock 19 for the aftermarket support.
    I purchased my 19 in February and have caught 3-4 sales on magazines since.
    My LGS just posted a sale today for 15rd mags for the G19 for $19.99.
    I rarely see mag sales for other manufacturers.

    Even Ruger has learned to make their Mark III and Mark IV .22 pistol magazines compatible with each other. Both will interchange. The Standard Mark, the Mark II, and Mark III all required model specific magazines, and will not interchange. Forcing the buyers to purchase separate magazines for each model. It's nice that Glock has avoided all of this from the get go.

    I was looking at getting a Sig P320C but now I'm leaning toward a G26 which can use my G19 mags and I'm already familiar with the platform.

    I was very impressed with the full size P320 but wasn't with the compact. The reduced length/weight from the full size for the compact caused extra rise from the 320's high bore axis to become noticeable. It's got a sweet trigger though.
