    My favorite is Frank, he has rode with me everywhere for many many years now .... Oh, btw, Frank is a G17 LE trade in from the 80's.

    Thanks for your video, it was interesting and informative.

    My primary carry is a Glock 19. I did recently buy a Glock 44 and I love it. I like that it's the same size as my Glock 19, but I have Ameriglo sights on it, and have the stock Glock sights on the G44. I don't like them particularly and if I ever thought I would use this gun for anything but target shooting I would have to get some different sights.

    I have put a couple of thousand rounds through it and had only one or two fails to fire and I think one fail to feed with it. I do not put any special attention to loading magazines and have not had the problems that some people seem to have with that. Mine shot high and left from the factory and the adjustable rear sight was able to center it. I did do some work on the sights that helps me aim by painting white line across the top of the front and rear sights. That really helps me get the right sight picture. The trigger on it is heavier that my Glock 19 which kind of surprised me a little bit, but it's not a bad trigger.

    I can get pretty accurate results with it at 15 yards. Picture is at 15 yards and target center is 1.5 inches in diameter and across the red is a little over 5 inches.

    Not sure what happened here, when I posted this, is was after the post # 14, as my remarks are meant for pistolero's comments, not gamblers.






    Lets all remember what a Glock is ... a combat weapon, not a target weapon, as with anything else one buys, you get what you pay for.


    Want a basic go bang Glock buy one, want a target pistol with lots of unnecessary bling, buy a Glock and gussey it up, until your bank account is screaming and you still have a combat weapon.


    I replaced the questionable early "black" parts with OEM updated parts and I am sure my 40 year old OEM weapon will shoot the same if not better than your lipstick onna pig example.

    Are you kidding? Other shooters try to buy this Glock from me all of the time. I could easily sell this G19(RTF2) tomorrow morning for at least $16 or $17 hundred! It's a beautiful shooting pistol with all of the originally defective (wrong) OEM factory parts replaced by the very best the Glock aftermarket parts companies have to offer.

    Things like: An extended and ported, Bar-Sto Precision barrel (a superlative rapid-fire asset). Customized extractor, ejector, EDP rod, and minus connector. Fixed LWD trigger stop; ALL Wolff gun springs, with a steel Wolff RSA. An extended slide stop, all precision-fitted SQ (Squirrel Daddy) steel pins A 'diamond-polished' action that's far more extensive and way better done than anything Aro-Tek used to do for me, and (of course) steel Meprolight 'low light sights'. (Oh, yeah; and, if the buyer should really want it, I'll even throw in the original 'for crap' factory barrel.)

    It took me well over a year of trial and error, and a lot of extra testing and fitting BEFORE this pistol finally became what the factory SHOULD have sold me in the first place! This G19(RTF2) is a late third generation 'P' prefix Glock that was produced at a time when Glock GmbH/Inc. was turning out a lot of: poorly finished pistols with: MIM extractors, BTF (brass into your face) problems, with any one of three different ejectors in them. (Only one ejector finally turned out to be the right one; and, originally, this 'nightmare Glock' wouldn't eject worth a damn!)

    However, and after a lot of custom changes and extra work, it now has a 4.9 to 5.2 lb 'dead stop' trigger in it. (Which is perfect for street self-defense work.) Ejects–if not perfectly, then–at least satisfactorily, and runs through rapid-fire pistol courses just as quick and smooth as molten glass! The last time I used this pistol in competition, I fired off two stages of 60 + rounds, each, in a total time of something less than 7 1/2 minutes. As for my 'far from original condition' G19(RTF2)? Well, no thanks to much overhyped 'Glock perfection' (what a laugh), it ran 'like a Rolex' and didn't miss one single tap on the trigger!

    Screw the original condition; this Glock pistol wasn't worth a damn during the first 12 to 15 months that I owned it. In fact I only kept this Glock because of what it is; and what it is, now, took a whole lot of extra work and money in order to turn it into the highly reliable shooter that it is today. Around here, the quality and performance of my Glock pistols are well known! I really could sell this G19(RTF2) for what I said; and, probably, tomorrow morning too.

    BUT IT AIN'T FOR SALE, ANYWAY!

    Very good video, that guy can shoot ! I don't know if I agree with all his choices but as the say "opinions are like a******s, everybody has got one"! I have a glock 34 and 19 and like them. I am thinking about selling the 19 though.
