Is it true that NYPD is also going with the G19 now?
NYPD has used the G19 for quite a few years. It's on the approved duty weapon list, which also includes the Sig P226 and S&W 5946. Given that the Glock is lighter, smaller, and easiest of the 3 to maintain, it tends to be the most popular model with the officers, especially the newer ones just coming out of the academy.
G17 vs. G19 recoil- I have both, and they're both a lot of fun to shoot. Felt recoil is a little bit higher with the G19, which is natural since the frame, slide, and barrel are all smaller. However, it's not anything that isn't manageable, even with the hottest +p loads. Hope this all helps.
Kosher Larry nailed it,........I'd say maybe a 10-15% increase in felt recoil with the G19.
This is mainly due to the weight reduction and the slightly different grip.
13.7642% to be exact. I did a very unscientific calculation on my smartassulator.
Hey,....I'm going to be using the "smartassulator"
How's that G19 treating ya?
It's treating my wife very well. After I shot it, I cleaned it up and took it over to the apartment. She went to the range this week and loved it. I guess now whenever I move down there we won't have to fight over a G19 anymore. We have two (I have my EDC G19 that I've had for like 2 years already).
Good deal,.........we could not make it for the Shuttle launch.
The night launches are outstanding,......next one for sure!
