I went to my LGS to order another G23 today and they had this for $30 more than a standard G19. I don't really use forward serrations and I don't really need another G19 but since it had night sights I couldn't pass. I noticed when I got home that it has an extended slide catch also. I don't normally use them, but it's a nice addition. All in all, a nifty little pistol for just $30 more than I payed for my last G19. Now if I can just keep my daughter from running off with this one too.
