gen 4 glock question, 19

Post by NonConformist » Wed Dec 23, 2015 10:11 am

My issue with Glock has always been that they point way high for me. Sure I could train it out but I won't compromise my natural point shooting ability. So I was looking at the new gen 4 Glocks and see they come w/ inserts for the grip. It looks like one of them would fill the web of my hand and lower to point of the gun for me. Does anyone have experience here on this or am I stuck w/ 'buy and try'?

I have 2 and use the narrowest grip, but YMMV. Any good rental places near you?

I have both Gen 4's and Gen 2 Glock 19s.
The Gen 4 gives you a beavertail but WILL NOT change the grip angle.
I am a 1911 shooter and it wasn't until an FBI guy showed me that all his Glocks had this

that the Glock worked for me.
It does change the angle.

I go back and forth with it on as it is not legal in USPSA production which I use a Glock 19 for.

That looks like what I thought the stock ones would do on the g4!

I used to think this, and always shot an XD but picked up a Glock and realized they actually make you roll your wrists forward into a better grip. It didn't take long at all to get used to the draw.

19 is always a great gun to add to the collection

A friend of mine was at the range last month with his gen 4 G19 and had his slide stop spring fail, causing the slide stop to work its way out. His upper went flying off during a reload. Glock is sending him a new spring; perhaps it's an issue they know about as they didn't seem surprised on the phone.
