    I acquired a G19 gen3 yesterday. It came with night sights, two mags and a Glock holster. I put 100 rounds of Magtech thru it and 100 rounds of Federal and both shot great. When I got home, I field stripped it for cleaning and was surprised how clean it was. I still cleaned it. I generally only use Magtech or Federal. Has anyone else had this same situation regarding ammo?

    Thanks
    Kevin

    I guess maybe I have been lucky but I have had no issues with Federal or Magtech or any other ammunition in my Glocks. Some is cleaner than others of course. Seems to me the dirtiest I have used is the Tula.

    Welcome and Congrats on the G 19 !
    Some of the cleanest target/plinking ammunition that I have found is Speer Lawman,
    Once in a great while my local WalMart will have some on their selfs,priced about the same as Federal or WWB. SJ 40

    I will have to keep a look out for Speer at my local Wally World.

    I will second the Lawman from Speer, that's what I looked for the most before I started rolling my own.

    Congrats on the G19 and welcome. :wavey:

    I recently purchased 500rds of Speer Lawman 124 gr 9mm for 100 bucks and I think it's one of the cleanest ammo my Glocks have been fed

    Congrats on your acquisition! G19 may well be one of the best all-around handguns in production (IMO.)
