    I am going to buy a 9mm in the next few months.
    I am looking at the g19.
    Is there any difference in the first, second, and third generation glocks???
    (other than the rail and finger groves)
    I really do not care about the rail and finger groves and i would not mind buying a first or second gen glock if there is no major difference and the cost is a little cheaper.
    Thanks in advance for any advice :)

    It's highly unlikely that you'll find a first generation G19, they're pretty rare and getting right valuable.

    I'd buy a second generation G19 in a flash though. (actually, I have two of them already...three if you count a cutaway)

    Some folks actually prefer the second-gen G19s to the latest models; often this has to do with the fingergrooves not fitting their hand size/shape. Having owned several, I'd heartily recommend a good used G19 if you could find one.

    Have your local dealer check CDNN Investments; they carry a lot of used or police refurbished handguns, including Glocks. Glock refurbs include a warranty, I believe.

    Gotta go with the others here. I have a 3rd gen 19, love it, but wouldn't hesitate to also buy my neighbors 2nd gen if the price was right. I happen to prefer grooves but that's solved cheaply with an aftermarket item & is an indiv pref anyway. Happen to also own the Glock light as a novelty but don't really need the rail; I usually have a nice handheld nearby. Find a good price on a 2nd gen & don't worry about finish wear. Several places will refinish & Glock will fix anything mechanical. Short of disaster, used Glocks are the way to go; and warranty forever, like a Zippo. Article with some add'l links attached (if it'll take my PDF)...

    (If you actually find an affordable 1st gen it's serendipity; scarf it up and then if you post about it, the wallets will circle like sharks in the water.) ;f

    thanks for the info :)
    I will start looking when i get enough money saved up.
    I only have 300 for now but im getting there, lol
    PS. i guess the first gen 9mm did not have rails.
    So do all the second gen 9mm have rails?
    Is this the easist way to tell a first gen from a second gen??
    Thanks again :)

    That is, without a doubt, one of the most well-arranged, useful photos I have ever seen. And I've seen it used here a LOT.

    Bravo!

    Lm,

    This for duty use? If so, get a letterhead from your agency (if they'll give you one) for Kiesler's for a G19 with 3 high cap mags. Then, do a road trip up here to Louisville, and I'll show you the wonder that is Kiesler's!

    Their price for a standard Glock is $399 (with letterhead). It's $418.95 after tax...go ahead, ask me how I know.


    *Hint - I have a G22, 23, 27, and 19.;f

    thanks for the info but we use 40cal and i already have a g23.
    they will not give me the letter for a 9mm :(
    I thought about getting a new 40 and selling mine or trade it in on a 9mm.
    I will be using it for competitions so if i get a used one thats scrached up its no big deal lol.
    When i get the funds saved up i will call you, Thanks again:)
