Default 19x

Anyone have a 19x yet? Iím thinking this will be my next purchase. My 19 has been fantastic, just leaves a little to be desired on my hand fitment. I played with a 17 recently and loved the grip however wasnít crazy about slide length.

Looking at real world users not randoms on the net

Based on your likes/dislikes it sounds like it's for you lol. I have a gen4 19 fits me perfectly. I have a gen4 17 frame that I only have a .22lr upper for that fits me fine, I don't find that the slide is that much longer.

Take a look at Caracal Corbin. The rear sight is in front of the ejection port, stupid easy to get on target and very comfortable in your hand.

A guy I work with match shoots and says it shoots as well as his competition 1911.

The slide length isnít that much, like 1/2Ē. However as I carry appendix itís enougn to poke my dick while Iím sitting haha. Iím hoping to handle a 19x and see if it fits the bill. If not Iíll be moving to a 17 and dealing with the dick poke lol.

Never heard of that. Quick google. It would have to shoot like magic for me to want one. Reminds me of the .22lr beretta came out with a couple years ago. Great shooting little gun. Terrible to look at

I appendix my 19. I could appendix a 17 but the grip sticks out too much for me.

It grows on you. I actually like the looks better than the Glock, admittedly Iím not a polymer fan. Love my para but it isnít nearly as comfortable in the hand as the Caracal.

I own several 19s I was thinking about trying one. I conceal carry a 19 with an xc1 and love it. I have a side car but it prints pretty bad so I stopped running it. My dad has a caracal and loves it.

I appendix carry a 19 with a trijicon RMR and love it.. Thing I DON'T like about the 19X is it only accepts 19X mags. They are not interchangeable with the 17 or 19 glock mags

Actually I retract my last statement! I just re read the article and they will except the standard 19/17 mags. But still in my mind this whole concept of a shorter slide length and longer grip make no since to me..

Iíve been wanting a rmr, canít justify not having my primary carry long enough for the slide work. I hate carrying my 26 as it feels like a lcp in my hands lol.

I canít see a standard 19 mag (15rd) fitting inside a 19x as itís not long enough. Now a 17 mag I can. And a 19x will back fit anything 9mm (17,19,26) I presume
