Like what most have commented, chances are that your G19 is a gen 2. With regards to finish, all Austrian made GLOCKs since gen 1 all go through a tennifer treatment/process then finished with a black coating. Gen 1 and 2 are a dull phosphate finish. Gen 3 is a Teflon like finish. Gen 4 and current are cross between the dull phosphate and Teflon like (closer in texture/appearance to the dull phosphate).

If the black phosphate on you 19 needs replacing, LoneWolf advertises that the phosphate that they do is the same as what Glock did prior to 2003. I have a few of their black barrels and it sure matches up nicely with my gen 2s.

Where in the hell did any of you read Glock 19 ????

It's a 17 and it's FIRST Gen

And reblue or parkerized because chrome and nickel look ghetto and I have those services available to me


All would look better than the rust, bought gun at auction , gun got wet, put into case, owner arrested, went to police property room for years awaiting trial.....
Want to refinish thus why I asked a question

Maybe you can send it in to Glock to have it refinished? They sub it out but it would be as Glocklike as you can get and the cost isn't too bad. They could even slap some night sights on cheap too if you want. Oh, you can get CPPII in a dark gray ('dusk') if you want.

If it is not rusting I see no need for refinish at all. As a working gun ( no one can accuse a glock of being pretty) you are going to wear finish shoot holster and drive on. No matter what finish you choose if you use the gun it is going to wear off eventually anyway. Never saw the point of refinishing unless you were having rust issues
Even on a gen 1 17 while I do not think these will ever be truly collectible refinishing almost never adds value to a gun and more often than not decreases it.
