Well, I got in my 4th Gen G19 a few days ago. I have been working too much to get the chance to take it out to the range but I did go ahead and put trijicons on it. Before I left for work I threw a couple of boxes of S&B ammo in the car my sight pusher just in case and the range bag. On my way home I was tired like always but had made my mind up that I was going to shoot Gaston's newest release to the gun world.

So, I stopped at the range and set up a target. Nothing fancy just a saucer sized paper plate stapled to the end of a foot lont 2x4. Put it out about 40 feet from me and started shooting my new toy. It shot nice. No jams no problems what so ever out of it. It was not as soft shooting as my Gen 4 G17 is but it was still softer than the Gen 3 G19.

Of course, it was accurate stock 5.5lbs trigger pull was what I have come to expect from Glock Stock triggers. I have nothing negative to say about the gun or how it perfromed today. But I did only put 100 rounds through it. I will have to see if that continues or not. I am sure it will though. All in all I am happy with it:cool:

Well, there is the obvious changes that have been made to the gun that give it a different feel as well. But yes it does shoot softer. I am really liking the 4th gens overall. I just need to get off my but and order my 02 spring for the G17 from Glock. I just keep forgeting to. Always thinking about something else instead.

Thanks for your review of the new 4gen G19...

I've read that some people don't like the new 4th gen Glocks... It makes me feel better when I read that someone with your knowledge likes them...

(because I plan to get one!)
Thanks. I am not really singing the praises of Glock on this pistol yet though. I am going to load up around 250 low pressure re-loads and take them out to the range with it. Hopefully Sunday evening sometime. Depends on what time I get out of work, and church. The low pressure re-loads are where the G17s were having problems hence the new recoil springs.

Now, this was supposed to have been addressed before this pistol was introduced as they were aware of the problems in the G17 by that time. I guess I just like to mess with things too much and can never leave well enough alone. But like I said it did great with the 100 factory rounds I put through it this morning.

Some of the promised pictures as I believe any I have a new gun thread should have pics of the new toy with it. Sure they all look the same but who don't like to show off a new toy right? I will apologize up front though. I spend ALOT more time shooting a gun than I do a camera. I am not much of a photographer but here it is with it's big brother. Gen 4 G17

I know when the Gen4 23 will be out... And its right after you get fed up and tired of waiting on it and buy something else, hehe.
All I can say is that it is coming. The paperwork in the box has a chart saying what backstrap fits what and the G23 is listed on it. I have heard RUMOR that they are in Austria and ready to ship but are waiting ATF approval. Which normally happens fairly quickly belive it or not as long as the gun scores enough points. I would go out on a limb and say a couple weeks they will be here. That is only a GUESS

I do not clean them before I shoot them. I do exactly what you are saying your going to do. When I do lube them I just use CLP. Nothing fancy. Six drops in the right places is almost too much. I always find myself cleaning off extra. But they run fine like that.

As soon as my daughter's Scooby Doo cartoon goes off we are heading to the range with those low pressure rounds. I will post up something about how it went later.

Ok well, I took it out with the low pressure rounds. They are Chronoed at 800-825fps in 9mm for a idea how low pressured they are. Anyway, not a problem in the world out of them. It ate them all with no trouble.

I color them in. I use a pastel crayon to do it just because I like the look of it. Plus it is easy to clean off if I get rid of the gun. Little CLP and you will never know it was there.

Ah, I see...

You know all the tricks...
How does that go? You don't get to be as old as me without picking up a thing or two. Or is it even a moron can learn something every now and then. ha ha ha lol
