    I have a Gen2 G19...Accuracy sucks!! Its all over the paper. Left, right but all stay below the target. out of 15 rounds, 1 hit the target!!! I am very good with a pistol(normally). Just got this 19(now I know why) and it is the worst! Before i give up on it, I am thinking of going with a lone wolf barrel. Anyone else have any opinions?

    At what distance were you shooting? 7 yds is a good place to start. What makes you think the problem is with the gun? How many other Glocks do you own? How many Glocks have you fired? How much dry-firing have you done with this gun?

    And, most importantly, have you let an experienced Glock shooter try the gun? A barrel won't solve trigger control problems.

    This is the 4th Glock I have owned and still have my G22. Never a problem with any of them. I hold the 19 the same as I have all the others. Including the ones My friends have. I will have another shooter try it just to make sure.

    What bentbiker said. Get an experienced Glock shooter to try it out. My G19, which looks like it's been through a couple of wars, is as accurate as my G21, which makes me feel very, very happy.

    Last time i saw this type of problem- the frame on a g-17 was cracked right at the ejection port. but 1st have a more accurate shooter try out the g-19 and if he/she has the same problem- check the frame for a hairline crack. in the case of the g-17, glock replaced the frame free of charge. good luck!!!!!!!!!

    Since you are new to Glocks, I suspect it is a shooter problem and not a pistol problem. There is a learning curve associated with Glocks and the Safe Action Trigger.

    If you wish to sell it, them PM me.

    Try altering your trigger finger placement, chances are you are reaching in too far with your trigger finger, or some other basic trigger/grip error.
    At 8-10 yards, it doesn't matter what ammo you are using, or how old the gun is, the error is most likely yours.

    It might NOT be you.....
    I Thought that I had the only G34 that didn't like 124 gr bullets....you might have a 19 of the same breed !
    And for a point of reference, I shoot 115 gr in the 34 when I shoot it in my Bullseye League, and while it's not as good as my 1911/.45, I still shoot at least 270 over the slow/timed/rapid fire segments. (O.K. usually 290+ with the .45).
    But my point is, if I try 124 ggr, it becomes a shotgun.
    Try lighter bullets, you might be surprised.
    My 34 does OK with 147's, but nothing to write home about.

    Danny, I am not new to the glock world..I have owned 4 in the past and still have my G22...Hammer, I thought about that and paid special attention to that to no avail.. Paleojd, they are stock factory sights. 25pd, I have gone over the frame with a magnifying glass I have here and do not see any cracks but thanks for the heads up. It may very well be me. I held every other glock the same and pulled the same without a problem. Maybe I am not noticing something..

    Myself, I'd check the ejection port on the slide.

    I'd sure like to shoot it!

    Since you've had three previous Glocks and shot them decently, then I believe that it's the gun or the ammo. Since you've tried several brands of ammo, it's probably the gun.
    I have NO idea what the problem is...but if you take out the barrel and recoil spring and just put the bare slide on the frame rails...does it ride easily or catch or snag? Is it a smooth ride?
    Check the crown of your barrel with a magnifying glass and see whether you have dents or nicks in the crown right where the bullet exits the muzzle. If these are all good and the frame is good, then send this thing in to Glock and let them fix it for you.
    This is my new OD Gen3 G19, rested @ 10 yards.

    Incorrect. It's not the gun's accuracy that "sucks", it's yours. Get some instruction and practice.
