The Glock 19X is an excellent choice for those looking for a full size – compact semi-automatic pistol that offers great accuracy and reliability. The 19X is basically a Glock 19 slide with a G17 frame.  The Glock 19X was Glocks attempt at trying to secure the Army military contract.  While Glock may not have succeeded against the Sig Sauer M18 pistol the firearm community has with another incredibly reliable Glock pistol.

The Glock 19X Pistol

This model features a polymer frame with a slide made of stainless steel.  One of the features includes the new Marksman Barrel.  This barrel uses different rifling than previous Glocks.  The enhanced rifling allows for an actual improvement of shooting accuracy over previous Glock versions.

The new 19X also gives the shooter a much-improved Gen5 trigger that many shooters have been hoping for.  Glock triggers have never been known for their crispness, but the new trigger assembly has helped make a much more tolerable shooting experience.

The G19X features a nPVD-coated slide in Flat Dark Earth color also marking the first and only to date colored slide from Glock.  The nPVD coating allows for the ability to withstand extreme abuse from everyday shooters. The frame of the 19x is within the Gen5 family but does have some features others do not.  It does not have a flared magwell nor finger grooves which were in the Gen3 and Gen4 Glocks. Now the 19X also features a lanyard loop, not sure if it’s to buckle it to your hip or hang around your neck but hey it’s there.  The full-sized frame allows for a relaxed grip or a frame that will fit a shooter with larger hands.

The 19X features a single 17 round magazine and 2 19 round magazines.
