Glock 19X

New release Fromm glock. It’s a Glock 19 slide with a 17 length grip. Not sure why you wouldn’t just put Pearce extensions on your G19 mags and get the same thing?

Or just use a 17 mag with xgrip in your 19.


But glock will make money on it because of their fan base.

Insane as this sounds, this is EXACTLY the gun I've been looking for from Glock. If they had an MOS version, I'd buy it tomorrow. I like guns with short slides, but I also like having a nice big grip. Yeah, that's backwards for concealed carry... I don't concealed carry, so I don't care.

I love this idea but think it's to late in the game for a massive profit. The 17 grip is the perfect size for most male police officers but the slide is a little long for carry. The extra rounds is IMHO a huge LEO selling point. For those that carry full sized guns this is the perfect weapon platform for duty and CCW (For the full sized CCWers in the profession). Had this come out 10-15 years ago I think it would have made more of a splash.

If I carried a full size I'd be all over this.

so it's a 'commander' glock. agree with above that the slide is the easy part to conceal. but nothing at all is wrong with giving people different options.

Same here, glad to see it being produced. Contrary to all the 17 slide/19 frame naysayers. This will be my next Glock, oh I hate the handgun roster.

Funny thing is, they did the exact opposite of what people were asking for. The CC crowd wants a Glock 19L, with the shorter grip and longer slide. This gun - which is basically the Glock 17K - would be perfect for carry optics (don't need the longer slide for sight radius), but they didn't come out with an MOS version. Makes you wonder what their marketing department is thinking, but maybe there was a contract involved.

I wouldn't be surprised. I see this as the perfect duty gun.

Reading that this is glock trying to recoup its losses from the MHS loss. This was basically what they tried to sell the army (minus the manual safety)
