So that it is written so shall it be done. Smile

All jokes aside, nothing wrong with folks who genuinely don’t like Glocks for the myriad of practical reasons Glocks have to not like them. It’s the folks who just flat out hate Glocks because REASONS!! for nothing more then they are Glocks that bug me. That goes for any gun for that matter. Get a little experience behind X, Y or Z before arbitrarily hating on it. I mean there are lots of things I don’t care for about Glocks…………I did however buy/own one….or two or…….well I hav experience with them, let’s just leave it at that. Frown Smile Razz

I bought my first firearm in December 1993, a Sig 228, that I still have today. Between that date and early this year, I am lucky enough to have bought several brands of firearms,CZ, HK, Beretta, IWI, SW, Ruger, FN, Browning, Dan Wesson, Walther, Springfield. But never a Glock. Two months ago, I bought my first Glock, a Gen 5 19. I keep saying to myself that this maybe the last handgun I am getting as I will be 66 in a couple of months. I believe that the G19 will be a classic someday, just like my 1911, my Beretta 92, my Hi Power, and my HK P7.

I bought a 43 on my 43rd birthday (four years ago) and went to visit my baby sister (she lives 3 mins from the gun store) and the 43 got stolen by her since she didn’t have a gun in the house. I never bought another one because the 43X came out. But I might pick up another one since Shield just announced a May 18th release date of their 9 rd 43 mag. Will have to compare it to a P365 for size.

A local FFL was having a 10% off sale if you paid cash. I saw they had 1 G21 Gen 4 in stock and took it upon myself to see that they soon had 0 G21’s in inventory! Smile

I found a drop in KKM barrel from Wing Tactical and I have one of those inbound too. I have a bevvy of cast bullets for that G21 to digest and for me to terrorize steel plates this summer.

I have a G20 gen3 and a G21 gen4 as well as my Sig P320 RX I do love shooting my G21 very much, it's a soft shooter for sure and accurate.

I've owned many Glocks over the years. G19, G27,Gen 3 G22, G31 .

I was without a Glock until 2021 whenI purchased a Gen 4 G22 which was a police trade in. It had a small scuff on the bottom of the grip and normal wear on the slide.

I had the slide refinished in Satin Ion Bond, Talon Grip covered the scuff mark. I then bought 2 conversionbarrels from Rock Slide, a 357 Sig and 9mm. The 9mmis really accurate and pleasant to shoots, thatswhats in the gun now.
I also installed a replacement trigger to correct trigger sting.
I use it for my home defense pistol with Streamlight TLR 1. With refinish, 2 barrels, trigger and original gun cost ($350), I've got maybe $675 tied up init.

But I'm very happy with the whole package. It's really the only Glock I need.

Make sure you don't use the 9MM conversion barrel for home defense. Put the stock .40 barrel back in for serious use.

I think the 9mm conversion barrel from a reputable company , used with proper Glock 9mm magazines and tested at least with at least 500 rounds is viable for home self defense.

My 2 Glocks do 5 calibers, 3rd Gen G32 with G23 barrel for both .40/.357 and 9mm "match" conversion barrel and my G30SF has a Storm Lake 10mm barrel along with Glock .45ACP barrel.

(well the .40/.357 magazines interchangeably have worked for almost 20 years for me so I think they're reliable enough)

Honestly, my G32 w/ 9mm match conversion barrel has had no issues and if you can go 500 rounds without any hiccup.

Plus +++ train for failures anyway as part of your routine because nothing is 100%.

I understand your concern. I've shot around 250 rounds using the conversion barrel, JHP and FMJ with no issues. I did polish the feed ramp.

I've seen no signs of peening or unusual wear on the barrel so far. I do however, have a backup pistol nearby the Glock.

Nice Glock.

I have no hesitation at all in getting a police trade-in Glock. If anything is wrong with it, it's about $25 in parts and 20 minutes in labor that will make it right.

$31.80 from Top Gun Supply, to be exact. Big Grin

Replacement recoil, trigger, firing pin, and striker block springs came in today from TGS.
Based on looking at the pistol, I'd be surprised if the pistol had 300 rounds down the pipe.
I will probably shoot this pistol as is for awhile (it's a project gun), but if/when it takes a HD/SD role, all the springs get replaced.

I had a failure in my G32 one time that required repairs.

I was able to give it to my range master and have them mail it Glock and Glock fixed it for free and shipped it back to me.

Glock took any non-standard parts off that I had put on but returned those parts with the gun.

Such as the #3.5 lb trigger and the "hip clip" backplate.


For that Police Glock : I'd do a field strip and clean and check out the barrel etc and go shoot that sucker and if it breaks use the lifetime warranty Smile

Picked up another Glock 45 with Ameriglo Bold night sights, last weekend. Wanted to get an extra since my current G45 is my EDC.

Was $520 out the door w/background check after GSSF coupon.
