    Well, I picked up my G19 Ameriglo yesterday and what a shooter this thing is.

    I put 200 rounds of Winchester 115 gr white box and 40 rounds of Federal Critical Defense 135 gr HP. All Wally World ammo, and I am happy to report no failures of any kind. Sorry for the crappy pic :)

    I would also held a 19X which felt great in my hand. I'm just not into tan frames or any colored firearms other than black.

    Any chance Glock will release the 19X in an all black version? IMG_20180121_100708065.jpg I would definitely purchase one...

    I actually like the color too! :cheers: It is growing on me, but I'm going to hold out a little to see if Glock produces in an all black model.

    It’s definitely different for a Glock but I bet they do. I think the sand color would prevent a lot of LE agencies from adopting the 19X. If a major department wanted black ones I bet they do. It’s all about the $$$$!

    Sooner or later, it will be sold in black, unless the model completely fails. I'm predicting the current shipments sell out really fast and then black ones start shipping.

    Glad somebody mentioned this. I love OD and FDE frames, but this poo-brown slide thing doesn’t appeal to me.

    Black the pistol and take the goofy lip off the front so all my magazines work! Then we will have a killer pistol!

    All good recommendations! I'm also glad more agree with me on the color. As mentioned I don't hate it but black is just the way I like my firearms. I would like to see the front lip removed as well and keep the grip the way it is like a Gen 2. I don't mine the cutout on my Gen 5 19 but don't see the need for it.

    You know you guys are contributing to me spending more money. The gun store is calling my name. What do I do? Get the 19X or the 34Gen5. Ugh! CC is going to get some use tomorrow morning!

    What do you do?! You get both!! That way you don’t regret buying one over the other one!

    Mine is the first colored Glock that I own and I'm thinking it looks great. In the past I've never been a fan of colored guns. I do have a KSG, Scar and LWRC that are FDE

    I wanted both, but my LGS only had the 19. So he actually saved me some money that day!

    My dealer had both.... My wife was happy they only had the 19X in tan. She said no black 19X until she gets her new wood laminate in the house :(

    More than likely they will make an all black version. May not be till 2019.

    I like just about everything about the 19x except the color. Black is the color Glocks should be and all the focus on "designer colors" seems foolish and makes the guns look like toys.

    I especially like the fact that the 19x has no finger grooves and no cut-out but I could probably live without that little lip in front of the mag. It looks good and probably feels good in the hand but it limits the types of magazines that can be used. I actually think it could be removed and rounded off and it wouldn't look bad.

    Here is how the G19x should look:

    I would also like to see the 19X in black or OD.
