Made In USA vs. Austria

Month ago I got a Gen4 M19 3alpha serial number made in Austria. It had a 7-8# trigger pull. Every thing in it was rough and unpolished. Simply polishing the contact surfaces reduced the pull to 5.5-6# when done. Firing a few hundred rounds stabilized the result at a crisp 5.5# pull with a short smooth slide down. The biggest improvement was polishing the burrs off the head of the firing pin block/lock pin. It had a burr line on both segements of the bevel, small diameter and large diameter. It is smooth and quick at 5.5#.

I got a second Gen4 M19 today with a 4alpha serial number made in the USA. Out of the box oiled as shipped, it has a 5.5# pull that is longer in stroke but slides more smoothly than the Austrian one. Not quite as crisp with the longer movement.

It is so nice I am not touching it. Good as is. I would be afraid of messing it up.

Both were marked as 5.5# spec guns on the box labels.

I just hope the 4alpha USA guns shoots as well as the 3alpha Austrian one.

(As to sights: They both had the idiot thick black plastic line at the bottom above the white outline that obscures part of the front white dot when the top edges of the black sights are properly aligned. A quick hit in the bottom of the rear sight with a round diamond file made a U for the front white dot to sit in and be completely visible when properly aligned. A diamond triangle cleans both corners so there are no burrs.)

Vendor says its all the same stuff made in Austria and assembled in the USA. Just a where made name change. Makes no sense to me.

I will shoot it today, Friday, edit day, hopefully.

Anti-limpwrist technology is but yet a pipe dream.

Actually anti-limpwrist technology is available! It is called the Apex extractor. Check my other thread

Glock Perfection.

60 rounds to check L-R, U-D, zero with four different loads.

100 rounds at 20-15-10-5 yards, draw and shoot, as speed.

Worked perfectly with light and heavy 9mm loads. Ejection was into piles, 3:00-5:00, from close to 5-6' depending on the power of the loads.

Zero'd it well enough that 100 rounds of three loads stayed in an IPSC A from 20 yards and in except for three rounds from 15 when I started to go faster than my finger worked.

Got bored, picked up my brass, and went home.

WW115FMJ USA ammo is the same zero as Hornady 115 Critical Defense is the same zero as 4.1 grains Bullseye with 115 & 124 grain FMJ bullets at 25 yards. Makes it easy.

I just picked up a Glock 19 Gen4 made in USA last week. Didn't even notice till I was on my way home that it was made in USA. Mine is also proofed, it has the state of Georgia with a P in it on the slide, barrel and frame. Have not had a chance to get it out to the range yet. Mine was test fired on 9-28-12. Quality looks spot on with every other Glock I have owned. Will post a range report as soon as I can get to the range.
