    Hi... I'm from Houston, Texas and this is my first Glock 19. I've owned a 23 in the past, but felt it was too expensive to run so I wanted something in 9mm. I had my reservations when choosing the Glock 19 as I've never really been a good shooter with Glock pistols. I originally wanted a Glock 34, but decided against the extra cost and the size.

    Here are the mods I've done to it... basing my work on the work I did on the Glock 23 which was hugely successful.

    Glockworx Competition Spring kit - striker spring, FPSP spring & trigger spring
    Glockworx Titanium Safety Plunger
    Scherer 3.5lb Connector
    Glock OEM extended magazine catch
    Pearce Grip Plug
    Meprolight tritium night sights


    I have to say, I enjoy shooting this thing every bit as much as my Sig Sauer 1911. Today is the first day something has taken the 1911's place as the gun I ran the most at the range. My reservations were quickly put to rest as I was finishing up my second magazine yielding this grouping @ 10 yards with WWB 115gr FMJ... the bottom target is with my 1911 with a Kimber .22LR conversion.

    I plan on the following mods as soon as funds permit:
    Glockworx Tungsten Guide Rod
    Glockworx 12lb recoil spring
    Glockworx skeletonized striker

    I built this thing to be a range toy with an intermediate pistol cartridge that was cheap to run. I'm very happy with it and I'd like to see what you guys could recommend. I have no intentions of turning this thing into a space gun, if I wanted to do that I would've purchased a Glock 34. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Good shooting :) Why do you suppose high left? Were they fast or slow?

    Does your rear sight need to be drifted right?

    Shortly after that group was shot, I had the gunsmith at The Arms Room drift the rear sight to the right just a bit. The sights were off because I had night sights installed. It's a straight shooter, precise and accurate.
    Thanks!
