Interesting given that the grip is what really tends to print more than the slide, with the G45 having the full size frame/handle of a 17 and shorter, compact slide of a 19. Would think it's a moot point between a 17 or a 19 with that giant light on it that extends well beyond even the length of a 17 slide. Still not able to wrap my head around how OP says it doesn't print as bad as a 17. Looks like it would print more like a 34.Fells like a G17 but does not print as bad when OWB.
Agreed. I never understood having a TLR1 or X300 on a 19X or 45. Just get a 17 or a 34.With that long light sticking past the barrel, why not just have a G17 and make use of the extra muzzle velocity, or a smaller light to make use of the compactness of the G45 slide?
Now, that is a reasonable response. But someone saying it prints noticeably less while a big-arse light is attached to it that extends out to the length of a Glock 34 is what's entertaining.The draw to me to the 45 is that I really like the 17 grip but the 45 fits in all of my 19 holsters.
