    Thanks to Glock including Veterans in the Blue label program, I picked up this new G19 G5. Came with night sights pre-installed. Blue label pricing was $459, which I thought was pretty fair considering it had night sights pre-installed.

    I've always been a fan of finger grooves, so I wasn't sure how I'd like the Gen 5 grip. Well, I love it. The G19 is the perfect grip for me. Drawn from an OWB holster, it lines up perfectly. I haven't done any timed drills with it, but I can tell it's going to be faster than my 26. The sights glow nicely in the dark and work well in the daylight.

    First range trip out, I shot 100 rounds of federal 115gr FMJ, a box of 50 golden sabers, a mag of 124gr HST and even some of my powder coated cast lead reloads. Everything functioned perfectly running as it should, no jams or failures, just a nice break-in session without drama.

    I bought one in Aug 2020. It replaced my previous carry weapon (that I used for 5.5 years). I got mine with Ameriglo sights, and the Gen 5s are great guns!

    I totally agree I did twenty-eight years and got out as a MSG I'm glad at least they are helping.

    Congrats on a very good pistol. I picked up the FS myself about 6 months ago. $459 is a fair price for a new Glock with night sights so you did very well. For me, the finger grooves of the Gen 3/4 models never fit my hand well so I very much like the Gen 5. Reminds me of the Gen 2 I use to have but with better texturing on the grip. I like the FS as well and just have to give the pistol a big thumbs up all the way around. Enjoy it :)

    Yep, any Gen 5 with N/S, for around $500 incl tax.
    Find that at your local LGS!

    Nice! I have an early Gen 5 and a Gen 5 MOS. Both are excellent.

    A gun store in my area is charging $580 + tax for a Gen 3 19 and $620 for a Gen 5 19 + tax. Unreal.

    I have to say that it really does shoot nicely. It’s the perfect size and it just felt solid while shooting, like it wanted to run.
