    All the rust you will miss. These are incredibly robust weapons.

    I paid 600 for my gen4 g19

  4. Glocks are great, super dependable, easy to take care of, and shoot straight. I carry the G 26 everday. I am 5'10" 175lbs. and work in an office. No one can tell I am carrying. The 19 is a bit more "printable" depends on how you dress and what you do.

    I carried a G19 Gen2 from 1988 (when they came out) until 2001 when I got a G26. G19 is a fantastic CC firearm. Never misfired or failed to fire using all kinds of ammo from all around the world. I carried that G19 everyday in Panama, Peru and other Central and South American countries. I carried it in Germany and throughout Europe. Fantastic gun. I still have it and have it in my nightstand. The only reason I carry the G26 is because it is smaller lighter and more concealable. Actually I still carry the G19 OWB (Israeli Tactical retention holster) OC with the G26 as a back up.

    I have a Gen 2 G19 that I carried on and off duty for years. I was given it when I retired and still carry it CC. Since I carried it starting in 1999, it has fired thousands of rounds of +P ammo without a single jam. It has no finger grooves thankfully, as the groove usually are where my fingers are not. Don't need a rail as it has Trijicon tritium sights. I never liked the light being on the gun. Bad guys tend to shoot back at the light and I really don't like it in line with my head. That is why many years ago they trained us to hold the flashlight out to the side when lighting up a perp.

    By the way, you can't beat the price or performance of the Israeli Tactical retention holsters at this site. Tighter and less "rattle" than a Blackhawk Serpa (I've tried them) at about 1/3 the cost. Also, Serpas have 3 different cant positions where the Israeli Tactical have 360 degree cant settings using an allen wrench (included) so you can use it for cross-draw, vertical, horizontal, whatever. I have no affiliation with the sight but I have ordered holsters and magazine holders from them with fast delivery.

    I paid $500 for my G19 Gen2 in 1988. I paid $500 for my G26 Gen3 in 2001 and it think they are about the same price now.

I'm not sure what Gen the Glock I'm getting is. Is there a way to tell? I know it's not a Gen 4 because it doesn't have any finger grooves or a rail system.

    To answer your question, Gen 4 Glocks actually say Gen 4 on the slide. Most likely if you're buying it new, it will be a gen 3 if it doesnt say gen 4 on it.

    must be a gen 2... gen 3 and 4 both have finger grooves... i've got the gen 3 and 4, have had zero issues...

  11. Rj if you can get the serial number you can use this thread to detirmin when your gun was made:

    Glock Serial Number Research Project - Glock Talk

    Mine is a G26 made in 2003.......man that is old. I can still hit a 10 off a draw (once in a while). So to some up 8 years of blasting and carrying everyday with absolutely no problems.
