    Glock 19X

    The hybrid Glock 19X has been released recently. Basically it's a gen 5 glock 17 lower with a gen 5 Glock 19 upper. This was Glock's entry into the US military modular pistol trials. It along with Sig were the only two to make it to the end. Sig however won.

    Here are some interesting write ups:

    Announcing Glock 19X

    GLOCK, Inc. introduces their first ever “Crossover” pistol, the GLOCK 19X, which combines the best features of two of its most popular and most trusted field-tested platforms. The full-size frame and the compact slide have joined forces to produce the ideal pistol for all conditions and all situations.

    “The G19X was developed for the military and is a practical everyday pistol that will do what you need it to do, when you need it to; every time, in every condition,” says GLOCK VP Josh Dorsey. “The pistol was developed for the military using GLOCK’s combat proven experience with consideration to efficiency, dependability and durability. Through rigorous testing, the G19X stands out above the competition and has the ability to function in all situations with ultimate reliability and accuracy. Our goal was to meet the demanding needs of the military while maintaining our standard of perfection. With proven results, the G19X delivers maximum efficiency and trustworthiness.”

    Confidence now comes in the coyote color with the first-ever factory colored slide. The nPVD slide coating of the GLOCK 19X prevents corrosion, resists chemicals, and stands up against the elements. Additional design features of the G19X include the GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) with enhanced polygonal rifling and an improved barrel crown for increased accuracy, ambidextrous slide stop levers and no finger grooves for better versatility, and a lanyard loop for retention. The pistol includes a standard 17-round magazine and two 17+2-round extended magazines along with a coyote-colored pistol case.

    The aggregate effect of all the G19X design enhancements gives any user the assurance to succeed and survive in all situations. A perfect “Crossover to Confidence”.

    The G19X will be available beginning January 22nd, 2018 at select dealers.

    I have seen a lot of hate towards this pistol on various other forums.

    My personal thoughts... The Glock 19 was a nice size, very handy but I hated the pistol grip as my pinky finger seemed to go off the grip. It bugged me. Frankly it kept me from buying one. I've contemplated getting one every now and then over the last 2 years. But then I remember how much I hated the pistol grip. I have other G19 type pistols where the grip is perfect. But not on the real one... Also a G17 fits me perfectly. It was going to be the one I eventually ended up buying. That and maybe a G34 later on.

    Now we have this newest version. In my case it seems to take everything I liked from the G17 and the G19 and combines them. I think this will be the way I go when I eventually get a Glock.

    This is one of the better reviews I've seen on the Glock 19X

    Here's a negative review of it which carries most of the arguments I've seen against the G19X

    Looks like Gaston tried to make a Commander with a craptastic trigger. Just saying.
    I never did play well with others. Never wanted to.
    Still some jackass on the other side of the internet pissing people off since the days of dial-up.
