Glock 17 frame/Glock 19 slide with threaded barrel???

My understanding is there will be a black version similar to the 19X but it will have a different designation and a few different details. It will be more in line with the standard 5th Gen guns as far as options and design, i.e. flared mag well and will use 5th Gen mags.

 

I still like my G19x.

I picked up a G19x last week and shot it last Saturday.  I am happy to say that the ejection is much stronger than the gen 3 19 I suffered with for three years.  No matter what parts I put in the gen 3, I could not get reliable, strong ejection.  I have a gen 5 19 now and the 19x and they have renewed my faith and enthusiasm for the Glock pistol.  Plus, accuracy for both is significantly improved.  Why do I say so?  My 2/3 -scale steel silhouette that was hard to hit reliably with the gen 3 at 50 yes is now a piece of cake with the gen 5 and the 19x.  Unscientific ?  Yep.  I feel more confident though.

I spent some time shooting one yesterday. In regards to ejection, Every 2-3 rounds a cartridge would comeback and literally bullseye my forehead. 

At first, a friend and myself thought it was a ricochet from the wall (typical indoor range shooting partitions), as im taller and it wasn’t happening to him. He recorded me firing another magazine and we realized it was not a ricochet. 

I was using Winchester 115gr 9mm Brass. He was using Magtech (?) I think.  Only happened within the first hundred rounds of mine, and promptly stopped. Have you had any similar issues?

 

 

The gen 5 19 did eject brass to my head with Blazer Brass.  My hand loads and social ammo: No. I’ve only shot hotter loads in the 19x.   I think weaker ammo may play a role in the ejection issue.

I ponied up and got me one (19x) this passed friday and shot it side by side with my Gen4 19. I'm happy with it. Of course, I need more range time but I'm probably going to send of the my gen4 to get the finger grooves removes and do a few other items.  It's just another tool in the toolbox..

I highly recommend Ben Simonson at Boresight Solutions in Miami.

@Longeye - Brownells is now making a G19 long slide.  Essentially it is a 17 length slide to fit on a 19 frame.  I have no hands on experience with these and can offer no insight as to how they work.  I do plan on getting one this summer to mate to an older Gen 2 frame I have sitting in the safe.  This could be a viable solution.

 ETA - False alarm, you were looking for a 17 frame and a 19 slide...my bad.  Go with the 19X then.  Memory/reading comprehension fail on my part.

FYI, I have a Brownell's slide on my G19.  It is the one with a mounting option for an RDS and a window cut in the top of the slide.  It assembled without any issues or modifications necessary and it cycles as smoothly, maybe better than the factory slide.  I'm using a Silencerco barrel TBRC compensator.  I only have about 100 rds through it right now, with no malfunctions.  The front of the slide is a little more squared than the factory slide, so it works better with the comp than factory.  I realize that this isn't a long term review, but if you're contemplating buying a Brownell's slide, this example of one is a big thumbs up.

I was told yesterday by a reliable and credible source (who made no mention of keeping quiet) that it will drop next week, and will have a different model number. We shall see.

I'm not a big Glock guy, but am liking my 19X 

Location: North Carolina

One of my deputies picked up a G19X a while ago. I got a chance to fiddle with it. I am impressed- It has a better trigger out of the box than what I have been able put together with "-" connectors, Gen 3 trigger bars and Apex USB and trigger faces.

I hope to get some range time with it soon.  

So this Blue Label G45 came home with me on Wednesday:

So far I like it a lot.

We had our Glock rep come out to the range on Wed of last week and he brought one of the new 45s with him.  I shot it and shot it well.  I liked it so much that myself and another instructor went at lunch the next day and each got one.  It is going to take me a bit, but this will be getting an RMR and probably a comp as well.

I was $460 out the door (tax and $15 NICS check) for a plastic sights model.

What is the asking for a Blue Label G45?

Steve, I picked mine up at Jenkins down at 21st and Shadeland.  I got the plastic sight version as I replace the sights anyway.  Mine was $426.07 out the door.

I picked up a Blue Label G45 with the Ameribold sights as soon as my dealer listed them in stock a few weeks ago. Finally got a chance to put some rounds through it last week. 

Block changed the ejector on the 19X supposedly, but definitely on the G45. Not sure if any additional changes were made, but this gun ejects empty cases farther and with more authority than any other 9mm I can remember ever shooting. You really need to see the ejection to believe it.

I shot one mag thru it yesterday at an indoor range.  Ejection appeared to be energetic. Only things flying over my head were bouncing off the wall next to me.  Best group I ever shot with a Glock. The 17 sized frame soaked up the recoil better than my 19s. So far so good.
