There's a 20% coupon enclosed for when I register the warranty, which I think I'll use to get some night sights. Other than that and maybe a 25 cent trigger job, otherwise I intend to leave it stock.


Congrats...

Love 'em or hate 'em, I feel every collection should have at least one Glock in it..
Be it a G19, G17 (Gen of your choice), or my favorite G45..
Gotta have one Glock in the safe or on the hipp...

Yesterday, I picked up a 43 for my oldest on her 22nd birthday. She went out of state to spend the day with her boyfriend (kid actually has a good job in Georgia) and I came to realize she needed one of her own.

Here at the house she has access to mine in the safe etc. She is trained and we go to the range (not as much as dad would like).

So yesterday, a 43 followed me home, a box of ammo for practice, box of carry load, and a coupon for a range day with dad Smile

How many rounds do you have through it? Any reliability issues?

Thanks!

I've got a health problem I'm working on, if I can get it taken care of, my next move is a Concealed Carry Permit.

I have only had it about 2 weeks.

I have already shot 400 rounds thru it. It is awesome.

I had a few issues in the first 50 rounds. I then switched to 124gr ammo, and it ran fine.

Some new guns need 124 for break in. After fifty rounds of 124gr FMJ, I went back to 115gr, and I have had no further issues.

I am sending off a Glock 19 to them soon, for the same service.

Well, this is not your normal Glock.

They lightened the slide with different cutouts. Also, more metal is removed when they change the serrations.

And, they spring the gun very lightly, to where it just functions. By doing all that, there is less recoil.

I honestly did not believe the hype, and just got the Wick package because it was cool. But damn, it does have less recoil than a stock Glock 34.

I am very pleased with it.

Thank you. I’ve been on the fence about having one done, but my biggest hang up is what generation I want to have done.

Thanks for the feedback.

What exactly does the “Wick” package have that the standard Combat Master doesn’t?

You just have to decide what you want. The normal Combat Master is totally customizable. You can get anything you want, leave out some things, get a specific magwell, no magwell, competition trigger, carry trigger, etc...

Look at the stats on the Wick 34 and see if you like it "as is." If not, then order from the customizable Combat Master link.

When I send in my G19, I am not getting any magwell on it. Gen 5 already has a built in magwell type opening. And, the grip is shorter. I decided to skip that.

You can do anything you want. Even choose between 4 different finishes.

Those cosmetic changes are certainly an acquired taste, but I don't like racegun looking Pistols in general so it follows.

I bet it shoots nice, regardless.

Oh, it shoots amazingly well. 3lb trigger. Less recoil with the changes they made. Grip is better because they did a grip reduction. My favorite gun I own

That is a nice pistol. I liked the TTI pistol line.

On a side note, I think we need to change the title of this thread to-

"You will buy Glocks"

The more of the Glocks I see, I find I need more.

What about that copper stuff that comes in your new glock?

I've heard this about that copper stuff but also heard its for storage so who knows?

"It is hi-temp copper anti-seize, and it helps with aiding break in within the slide rails & frame."

I also see this when I'm researching it
"
Per Glock:

The copper colored lubricant on
portions of the slide of brand new GLOCK pistols is
intended to help provide long-term lubrication and
should not be removed"

so it's possibly up in the air or Glocks do need a break-in period

I recently bought a new Glock after 30 yrs. so I was curious about this too.
So I opened up the manual that came w/ it and found-

Your Glock pistol should be cleaned and lubricated as follows:
1.when brand new, before first time it is fired,
...
Then later it says to brush the rail cuts w/ brush and lubricant and then wipe them w/ a clean patch.
Repeat until the patch remains clean (except copper colored lont-term lubrication).

So it sounds like you're going to remove most of the copper lube but not worry about any residual.

"I've heard this about that copper stuff but also heard its for storage so who knows?" Good grief, man. Stop guessing. Glocks do not need to be broken in.

Tell me what happens if you remove the copper anti-seize from the pistol. Tell me. Do you know? Apparently, you don't.

Good grief. No, it's not "up in the air". You go on and keep thinking that Glocks need breaking in, but stop spreading misinformation. You're just talking out of your ass. Roll Eyes

umm no, I actually researched the net because I was wondering.

I have 2 glocks and yes I did take it off (after the first shooting with both which was like 500+ rounds).

One of them had a breach block failure during regular shooting after about 3500 rounds with Winchester ammo, do you not believe that could happen to a Glock?

I know it will just earn more of your ire but you only quoted me on what you wanted and completely omitted stuff like this I had found on the net...


I've read more and some say its a kind of Loctite?

I am definitely not saying that without that stuff a Glock is immediately going to have FTE's and FTF's and explode, they are great guns we should all own one or 10+ whatever you want.

I am also not trying to shame Glock or make Glock look bad.

I was more truly interested in the answer.

edit: I'm a dumb Smile, removed the unfounded quote I had in there from the internet

What happens if you remove the copper anti-seize from the pistol? You don't even know why it's there in the first place.
