Picked up a new Glock 19X... Login/Join

The 19X is like Glock's version of the Beretta Centurion. I like it! I even like the color although it would be nice to see it in black too, especially the new Gen 5 finish which so far I have found to be excellent. Not sure why they would put a front lip on the mag well though. It is the only thing that irks me a bit. The lanyard loop I can take or leave, leaning more towards leave.

Maybe it’s just me but the grip on the 19x looks much thicker than the other glocks, especially the top picture.


Visual illusion, same thickness.

I think that may be a visual illusion. In hand it feels just like the Gen5 G17 to me.


Yeah, it's just an optical illusion. The black grips blend with the dark shadows where the gun meets the table, making the grip appear skinnier.

They're the same size. The only difference is the slight lip that protrudes from the front edge of the bottom of the G19X's grip.

I haven't verified what Glock's MAP will be, but I expect that when I get in and put these to the floor later today our shop will be in the $600ish range.

Thx, figured that might be the case. Been thinking about getting the 17 but I might have to consider this instead.

I think I may need a Gen 5 G17.
I finally accepted the idea that I shoot Glocks better than any other striker platform out there.

I’ve been thinking the same thing. Absolutely love my gen 5 19. Now with the 19X, I think I may prefer 19X over the 17.5.

Does that little loop thing mean it can also be a key chain?

You mean the lanyard loop? Well, a key chain or necklace if you want to really be bad arse!

What's the pricing on these Glocks?


The gun shop near my house has them for $619.00.

I'm glad you like it, and it's your money, but I just don't get it.

The hard part of about concealing a fullsize Glock is not the slide/barrel length, it's the grip length. If you're not concealing it then there isn't a real advantage to the shorter slide/barrel either.

If I had my druthers, I'd rather have a G17 length slide and barrel, with a G19 grip. Slightly better performance due to the longer barrel, longer sight radius for "iron" sights, and the ease of concealing from the shorter grip.

Just my 2 cents. YMMV.

I too agree about the difficulty in concealing a fullsize pistol of any manufacturer but we have to remember this wasnt meant to be a concealed carry piece. It was designed for the military contract and I'm pretty sure printing is of little concern...
