Glock19 Gen 2 back to Smyrna
#1
On 9/8 I sent my 1988 G19 back to Glock for long over due warranty upgrades. Last Wednesday I get a call from Glock that the frame is cracked around locking block and needs replacement.

Not being overly fond of Gen 3 finger grooves, and concerned with the long term value, I asked if they had Gen 2 frames. They do not.

So, long story short, it's coming back with Gen 3 frame and new S/N.

Amazingly, the FFL just called and the gun is in. 10 calendar days total.
I'll pick up tomorrow, give it a workout and see if I like.
I'm assuming it's worth less, but I like the idea of basically a new gun.
Now to see if I like the finger grooves.

I'm glad the turn-around time was pretty quick. Let us know how you like the new frame.

Picked up the refurbished G19 and its very sweet. Glad now that I had it done.
Stretched the inner tube over the grip and it feels FANTASTIC.
Because of the S/N change had to have a PICS check.
While waiting, I spied a few G26s in the case, Love at first sight. So I picked up the Gen. 4.
Yikes great gun. Super Carry gun, small, compact, powerful, solid feel and From the holster points perfectly.
Did I say love?

Gen. 2 slide & barrel, Gen. 3 Grip and Guts.

Great choice, on both. I carry the G27, but my father-in-law worked for the DEA for 20 years and carried the G26 for some of it, and he swears by it. Part of the reasoni went with the 27. Enjoy!

Okay....Both to the range this morning. 100 rounds through both. FMJs, Corbon JHPs, Golden Sabres......ate everything .....both guns, not even a hint of fail.

Trigger reset in both guns is fantastic, allowing for very, very, fast rapid fire.
Both soft shooters. The inner tube wrap around grips make for super comfortable, super controllable Guns.

Accurate as could be, could easily one-hole either gun.....albeit I shoot all Glocks 2-3" high......everyone one I have ever tried.

As much as I loathe the practice, I'm curious as to why, if you do not like the finger grooves you do not dremel them off? I am usually against such "Bubbafied gunsmithing" but I know it can be done right. I hate seeing good frames goto waste because someone got ahold a dremel and soldering iron. Children

What is that "inner tube" you are putting the grips? Something you rigged up?

A. I didn't think I liked the finger grooves but once stretching the inner tube over the grip, it feels AWESOME.

B. Back when Gen. 2's came out (1988 or so) there were no Hogue grips, or Pachmyrs's or any other after market grip for Glocks. The grip was slippery, especially during rapid fire.

So, we improvised with the inner tubes. Everyone did it and I have it on all my guns. Function over form for me. I've yet to find something I like better. It adds virtually no girth, adds a smooth, non-slip surface so the gun does not slide in sweaty hands, and was the embryo for the Hogue slip on grip.
