So shouldn't the Glock 45 have been the combination of a G19 frame and a G26 slide and barrel? Although I guess they could now maybe make it a Glock 52 instead since it would be 7 more than the 45 like the G26 was 7 more than the G19?

In either case, whatever the designation, a G19 frame with a G26 top end would be quite interesting!

S&W did it with the 3.6" M&P compact and would be my favorite configuration for concealed carry. For everything else I like the G45 model of a full duty grip and a 4" bbl.

I have finally joined the Glock group. A model 26. I have much to learn.

I just traded my G19 for a 320 X-Carry and couldn’t be happier. I could never get use to the grip angle of Glocks. I guess I could if they were all I shoot. I’ll still keep my G23 around since it’s been abused so much and it got some sentimental attachment.

Nice review of the Vickers kit - I still use the Glock OEM Extended releases on my big Glocks but the G42/43s get the Vickers slide stops.

If you haven’t tried one on a full size, it might be worth it. With the extended OEM, I found myself riding the slide stop to the point where the slide wouldn’t lock open on empty. Hasn’t been a problem with the Vickers. The problem I AM encountering is that my acid sweat is rusting the bejesus out of it.

Though, I’ll say the ones I own are older and look different from the one pictured above, which has more of a rounded profile than angled, like mine are. Might be that they’re treating them with a different finish now as well.

I might have to try one, although I've never had that issue ever, even with extended slide stops.

I am trying to find a slightly extended magazine release on the G19/G45. I have the OEM extended 'FBI' mag release in all of em, with is a whisker or two taller. Tried the Ghost and hated it, took it out before even going to the range. Maybe I'll give the Vickers a try.

I shot a course and had issues with the G19 either locking back prematurely or dropping; it took a few days to determine but was the OEM extended slide stop release. I had them on all my Glocks. It was never a range issue, and didn't turn up until I started really hammering them. With thumbs forward close to the frame, it got activated.

I switched to the Vickers and have had no issues since. Now all my Glocks have the Vickers.

The OEM standard slide stop release doesn't have that issue at all, of course. The benefit of the Vickers is that it's snag resistant, not easy to inadvertently activate, but easy to positively lock up or down.

Yeah, I've taken classes and never had that issue once.

Yeah, shortly after I posted it, I realized that surely that isn't a problem for everyone and didn't mean it to sound like like I think it is, but life happened and I didn't get to editing the post in time. Big Grin

What I guess I want to say is that the Vickers, at least the ones I've used and what looks to be a further improved version in the pics 1lowlife has posted, is a nice compromise between between the OEM standard slide stop and the OEM extended slide stop for those of us finding that we were riding the gun out of slide lock on empty. If you don't feel like you need it, don't feel like I'm trying to push it on you. Big Grin

I also have the Vickers controls on my G42, and for a pistol that small, they make a drastic improvement in handling and manipulation.

The Vickers is 'smaller/shorter' than OEM IMHO.
But I like that is doesn't stick out as far as the OEM.
I also like it's 'rounded' shape.

Same here on the G42, along with the Vickers mag extension...

Last time I bought a Glock was in the early 90s when I bought my Gen 2 Glock 19. It is my only Glock but am thinking of getting a Glock 45 at some point. Will the Glock 45 fit Glock 19 holsters? Mine is an all kydex Ozark single clip IWB. Thanks for any advice.

In theory, yes it should. It's a G19 length slide and a G17 frame length, so absent any really tight molding issues (the frame has gotten a hair thicker in some parts over the succeeding generations) or a holster made for a Glock without a rail, I imagine it should work.

I never thought I'd be considering this, much less posting about it.

At the range this past weekend, I was asking about the SIG P365. "It's on our wishlist," I was told. Mine, too.

So, it seems the P365 is a unicorn around here, and then I read reports of all the problems associated with it and I wonder...

The guy behind the counter was showing compact 9mm guns to another customer: Shield, G43, PPS, and we got to talking. He was waxing on about his Glock, and how he could mistreat it all day long and it would shoot. He said he hadn't even cleaned it for six months and only realized he needed to as it was flashing as he shot it.

I had thought about a Glock 43 for my daughter, but she's not yet found the gun that suits her. I've been carrying a P938, but with the problems I've had with it, feel like I can't trust it when it's needed most.

Now, I'm considering buying a G43. Should I get my head examined? Will you try to talk me out of it?

I had two 43's. Both USA Talo models. 1st was a tac driver and reliable as you would expect from a Glock. I sold it to fund a P365. After the P365 (first one) gave me issues, it was sent to Sig. Received a new one back and sold it. Went back to the Glock 43 Talo and I had nothing but issue after issue with it. After replacing everything but the slide frame and barrel, I finally got it to run right. Sold it and tried for P365 #2. I have a thread on it here. It's getting ready to go back to Sig for the 2nd time for one of the same issues it was sent before.

I give up on micro's..........

If you fundamentally do not like Glocks, don't buy it. If your on the edge, rent one and take it for a test spin.

I understand there is an emotional "war" going on vis-a-vis "pro-Glock" and "anti-Glock." I don't understand it any more than I understand the "Nikon vs. Canon" or "Gibson vs. Fender" wars. For me, it's what fits and works best for me.

Renting a G43 at my range is a simple thing to do. I don't know why I haven't so far, as I own S&W, Springfield, SIG, and several other brands. Maybe I need a Glock just to flesh out my arsenal.
