Picked this guy up today.
It's because you got two big honking holes in the top of the slide.
Shoot it in the dark!
Yep, you got a compensated G19, to help reduce all that wrist breaking recoil.
I suspect epoxy would seal up those holes pretty quickly.
But seriously, I've always wanted to shoot a compensated pistol ... to see if the difference is significant. Do you notice any significant difference when you shoot this one?
Yup . . . That will do it every time.
A ported 19, is like a ported .22... it just makes absolutely no sense. Many consider the 9mm an anemic cartridge anyway, when you start reducing velocities, etc... I dunno.
I've let total newbs shoot a .38spl, then an unported G17, and none of them had a problem.
If it was a big, 44mag, or .454, I could see porting, but on a 9m.. its almost like a v10 on a bicycle.
I've only shot a Glock 31 ported(friends), and my 32, which is not ported. I personally did not like it. While I think the idea that you're going to be blinded by the flame is a bit exaggerated, my eyes did have trouble readjusting in low light. Granted, the .357sig is not the 9mm, but thats the only comparison I can give... I've also been hit in the head a lot, so maybe that effects my eyesight..
I cant believe Glock even makes a ported 9mm.
I didn't get a chance to shoot it yet. Hopefully it's fun to shoot.
Just put in a ghost 3.5# connector. It's ready to rock!
Gonna wait and see what the front sight looks like after 200 rounds before replacing the sights.
I have a buddy with a full blown 38 Super STI race gun. It has a compensator. First time I shot it, I did not reset the trigger due to the lack of recoil and light trigger pull.
I do agree that at least for men, a 9mm recoil should not be an issue.
I don't mind recoil, either. I shoot major power factor in USPSA with a Glock 35 and carry a Glock 23.
Not sure why Glock comped the 9mm. The extra noise would probably make a shooter flinch worse.
Going back to the range tommorrow night for a match. I'll try to remember to take some vids.
I don't know if all the people who run down the ported 19s have actually shot them much, but I love mine. Yeah, I can handle recoil from almost anything. Is there a valid reason to continue to do so? I find that the follow-up shots are quicker, which is the best thing to come from the porting. I bought my 19C mainly because I didn't have one (a perfectly valid reason to me, and a seemingly common one on GT...) It's become my favorite Glock, the one I throw in the bag even when I head to the range to shoot something else. (Of course, I have that new G38 in .45 GAP that may challenge it, but that's another loaded topic.)
BTW, I also added the 3.5 connector and a smooth trigger. My night sights still look fine after a whole lot of shooting. Also, I don't notice any increase in noise from the comp.
In a defensive situation at night, that porting will be a big flash in your eyes.
Your quick follow up shot just went down the toilet.
Nice gun, congrats.
looks like a G35 that got picked too early. It's not finished.
congradulations ,it works
Congrats! Enjoy your new G19C fire snorter.
NOPE,......I played with a G19c a few years back at a private range at night,
Little to no issue for me. We were shooting 147gr Gold Dots.
Thanks for the info. Glad you like it, I'm that way with my G23.
I didn't get a chance to shoot mine yet. There were a bunch of new shooters last night, so no time to goof around after the match.
Wonder if I have to shoot limited because of the comp? hehe
looks like someone gouged your new glock. id probably call customer service
