  1. Masty

    This is one of Glocks great pistols, perfect size for carry and consealing with the knock down power you want. Extremely reliable, I have put over 1500 rounds through mine without a single issue. Accepts any ammo I feed it with no issues. Only thing I can say is it is a .40 caliber pistol so it has the kick of one, due to the size you will want some talon grips and possibly a pinky extension on the mag to ensure a good grip. That being said I love this gun and it will remain in my collection.

  2. Kerine

    I have a Gen 3 Glock 19 that I carry in the winter but this one is way easier to carry in cargo shorts. I wanted a heavy hitter. I love this gun a lot. Definitely has knocked down power so be prepared for some recoil. Nothing crazy but you will feel it. This isn’t a every weekend range gun unless you plan on grip extensions.

  3. Juaty

    This pistol is perfect in size and flawless in design and function. I love mine and think that the reputation that Glock has acheived is well deserved. It never fails me and always hits its mark. You will never go wrong with a Glock. Every police officer that I know carries Glock as both their on duty and off duty gun, as does lots of other law enforcement and military personel around the world. To me, Glock is to modern times as what Colt was to the old west.

    This is yet another quality firearm by Glock. This was the very first gun I purchased over ten years ago and I never regretted it. If you are debating on a Glock, just YouTube videos about the different stress tests. The gun will literally fire every time you squeeze the trigger and that’s a big plus in my book. When you squeeze the trigger, you want to know it will go “bang” every time without an issue. My only gripe about this gun is it’s not as easy to conceal carry as some other options out there. The gun is pretty heavy and bulky. Other than that, it’s a nice quality piece.
