As I understand it, yellow inserts mean "Friendship".
Pink inserts = love in a gentle, chaste manner.
Red inserts = intense, powerful feelings of love.
Orange = happiness and joy.
Green = wish for health, wellness, and good fortune.
Mixed(Green front sight, Yellow rear)= promise of adventure.
Wink Hope that helps and good luck. Wink

Went shooting on the 4th, after I saw what she did to her target with her Glock I told her "You had me at Glock 19"

She liked my Ed Brown too.

I just put on some Ameriglo CAP sights on my gen2 19. I like them so far. It's the same profile of the factory IIRC, but with a big bright front sight and a horizontal bar on the rear to "stack the box" sight picture.

I also really like the CAPs. They make them with a thinner front sight version now also.

I picked up a G23 2nd gen (I think) at a gun show this morning ... the frame is the same as my Gen2 G19.
Has 3-13 round mags and a 30 round stick and the loader ... a generic pistol box; he wanted 5 but I got it for $400 ... guy said he was selling it to help fund a Ruger Precision in 6.5 Creedmoore and the seller ddidn't want the Glock or wouldn't allow him enough.

Seemed like a good deal, a little finish wear on the barrel, otherwise very minty (condition, not color Wink)
Is there anything I should look for / be aware of ?

I'm no Glock expert, but I think there was an upgrade to increase chamber support of the case head somewhere in Gen 2. If I'm right, check if yours has the upgrade.

Anyone have a recommendation for a appendix tuckable rig with an APL attached? I've found plenty of non tuckable versions but most don't offer a tuckable option.

My company has a no firearms policy however considering the current climate and other factors I'm beginning to move towards carrying while working just need a deep concealment rig. The 43 in the GCode eclipse will suffice but also want an option for the 19.

How do I check to see if mine has the upgrade? Is there a serial number range that I can check somewhere ... if so I haven't found it.

I've searched on line and haven't found anything about an upgrade ... and a lot of people are asking if they should worry about their gen 3 and gen4 (only to be told no, it was fixed along time ago)

I shot 2 mags of Winchester White-Box and inspected the brass, all seemed to be fine and while all would still fit in the chamber, some were a bit tighter than others, but not excessively tight. A bit of the case head is visible on the bottom, and from pictures I've found while searching, this appears to be what the "not fully supported" is is referring to.

Also, a lot of people that are asking are also reloading, which of course is a no-no according to every manufacturer that I know of.

I hate to sound like a newbie ... but to this gun I am ...
I'll only be shooting factory ammo and while I have a few boxes of hollow points, I mostly bought flat-nose WWB; what I consider practice ammo ... I don't have any that is marketed as zombie or self-defense or maximum load.

Call Glock, ask them. If there was an upgrade, they should know by your serial number if it's been done.

Using factory ammo, though, I wouldn't worry about it.

The extractors are different in that they don't have the loaded chamber indicator and a different angle. Also, the ejector will be coated black, ( as well as the trigger bar) and not bare metal,like on newer models. I had one a little while back and had a Glock armorer order the parts for me as buying them on your own can get pricey. There are numerous parts that are needed to be replaced for the upgrade, but the barrels are not one. Some people have had luck calling Glock and then were shipped the parts but others, like myself, had to go through a Glock armorer.

The 'black' parts of one of my Gen 2 G21s.



Gen 2 G21 'black' parts vs. an upgraded Gen 2 G17.





As patw stated, the barrel isn't part of this upgrade..

I've owned and ran Gen 2 Glocks in 9mm, 40, 45, and even a Gen 1 G17, all with original parts without issue.

Thank you and all that responded! All my internals are bright steel, so whatever upgrade there was it looks like mine has it. It'll make a fine console gun in the SUV.

I shot it the other day and as expected it's a bit snappier than my G19 but I shot it well enough to make 10 of 13 head shots from 15 yards from the first mag and 12 of 13 from the second ... I've got a bunch of styrofoam heads a renter left at my property, they were free and make great targets I may have to buy some then their shot up!

Question

Have: Gen 1 Glock 35 in .40 cal.

Want: to drop it down to 9mm so my wife and sons can handle it a little bit better.

From my research, I found several posts stating that all that's required is a G19 barrel and magazine. Is that really all it takes?

Seems like there would be more to it.

The ejector mechanism is differant on the .40 vs the 9mm, so if not changed, I think that there would be ejection problems.

Glock 7 barrel will fit. But it's not steel and is probably expensive.

You would be better off to buy one of the .40 to 9 conversion barrels from an aftermarket source then simply trying to drop in a 9mm factory barrel.

Your screen is too small Wink

Plain old iPhone 7 pictures. I just started hosting with Imgur, used Photobucket for years.

It appears that Imgur doesn't downsize pics like Photobucket did.
