    Have them on mine, because s**t happens. No one expects to be thrown in a pond/pool, have to use your weapon after an altercation where you rolled in a puddle, etc. Cheap peace of mind that your Glock will work.

    My new addition is a Walther PPQ Navy, comes from factory able to function under water, and has a threaded barrel. Glock could release something similar, lots of folks would self-justify owning a variant of the same gun they may already own.

    Cost, for one thing:
    Glock maritime spring cups cost $18.00 per set.
    Ghost maritime spring cups cost $10.95 per set.
    Glock standard spring cups cost $3.00 per set.

    For this cost you get a part that allows you to fire your Glock underwater. That's it. I have a set in one of my Glocks, but I can't remember which because they make no difference in function that I can detect. None.



    If Glock put them in every pistol, then they would not be able to sell them as an upgrade, would they?

    Replying to my own posts again. Sorry, but I have to admit an error and make a correction. I indicated (above) that the Glock was designed to fire under water using the maritime spring cups. I've been convinced that is not a true statement.

    Last night I had the opportunity to ask a Glock LE sales manager about maritime spring cups. He told us that they were not intended to allow the pistol to be fired underwater, and that doing so would probably result in serious harm to the shooter. Think about it: lots of sudden high pressure close to you in water..sounds like a lithotripter to me...the thing they use to break up kidney stones. Not to mention what it would do to your head.

    Instead, he said that the maritime spring cups were designed to allow water to drain from the pistol more quickly. In cases where the pistol is carried by people whose mission calls for them to wade (or swim....), this is a necessary feature. With water drained out of the pistol more quickly, it will operate safely and predictably. That can't be said for a Glock which has water in the firing pin channel.

    He also said that the G19 is now the favored pistol of SOCOM...but that's another topic, I guess.

    I could not agree with the above statement more !

    NSW goes Glock

    Naval Special Warfare with the G19 Chris. Others are using the weapon too and I would imagine they have mods including spring cups.
    Now I want a G19. Best Glock out there IMO.

    Thanks for the post Joat, confirming what that Glock rep told me about the G19 and SOCOM. He also mentioned that in an election year there's often a big surge in gun demand, so I hope you can find that G19 at a reasonable price!

    No problem.
    I have my eye on a Gen 3 G19 with a TB and suppressor sights. Price is right at just a hair over $500. Problem is that it's a Gen 3 and they don't fit my hand as well as a Gen 4.
    I've owned Gen 3's and all functioned great but the hand fit is crucial with my partially missing trigger finger.
    Still tempting.

    Just saw Palmetto State Armory had Gen 4 19's for $539 w free shipping. Would probably come out close to what they sell for locally after the transfer fee, but if you are having trouble finding one it's an option. I personally prefer the gen 4's for the same reason, better fit. Plus the larger mag release and better grip texture are nice as well.
