    Being that someone has already swapped sights I say go for it.

    I put over 3,000 RDS through mine in the short time I had it, and the owner prior had over 1,000 just in Leo qualifying so I see no problem with shooting it. I'd probably say an aftermarket barrel and no +p ammo to try and preserve what's there. But that's strictly my opinion.

    Extractor swapping isn't a big deal. In my opinion its just the serial numbered parts and the mag that are the important features. I'm jus like you and FAR from being a collector (I gave away a 000 serial number g36 in a drawing). I personally get lot more enjoyment out of shooting my guns. And if this isn't your primary I see nothing wrong with shooting it.

    Love it and use it for what its meant for! Maybe be a little more thorough with cleanings and inspections being that I personally had some issues with mine.

    We definitely need pictures. If only someone (Sig fiend) would post a video of shooting one people would realize these are still functional firearms.

    Oh I'll definitely get some video too. Video was one of the reasons I wanted to get a decent DSLR. ;)

    Always makes me shake my head... DSLR for video. :crying:

    So aside from rarity, is there any other reason this pistol is special - seems pretty boring to me.

    I don't know if it will effect performance but Apex extractors
    are for 15 degree extractor slides as compared to 90 degree of early Glocks.

    Nope! It's just an old gun that was born out of a man's need for a smaller gun...

    I just spoke on the phone with another GT member who owns THREE Gen1 G19's that he bought decades ago as used police trade in's. He said the shop actually had four of them, but he didn't have enough money to buy all four! :wow:

    I'll let him identify himself if he wants to, but he sent me a couple pics to post. Unfortunately he only had the camera on his phone, so they're small pics, but he'll be working on getting some bigger and better one's for us.

    I lightened this one up a bit and enlarged it slightly...

    Cutting down the grip is easy but how they hell could you cut down the slide length?

    Since that post, I have learned more about the Gen , 1 G19. It is real and rare.

    There is a real Gen 1 G19 for sale right now on gunbroker.

    I bought my 19 in 1988 a friend of mine ordered it for me before they were available in the gun shops she has been well taken care of and is in like new condition i have the box and every thing that came with the gun and im trying to figure out what its value is , im seeing some crazy prices and dont know what to believe i gave it to my oldest son when he joind the force and i want him to pass it on to my youngest when he joins up and some day je can pass it on to my grand son so with all that said can i find out what its worth by the serial number or are all 19s bought in 88 worth way more than i ever thought they would go up any info would be appreciated my son asked if he could sell it to a friend of his a couple years back for $300 and i told him absolutely not that is a first-generation Glock 19 it will only go up in price
