I finally got my hands on the new GLOCK 19X. It’s a GLOCK 19 slide atop a GLOCK 17 frame. So how does it shoot? I’m glad I asked . . .
The GLOCK 19X shoots a lot like a GLOCK 19 with a GLOCK 17 frame.
All kidding aside, X marks the spot for a fast shooting, flat shooting gun. I love the 19X’s full grip; it’s easy to grab, easy to control. The short slide is quick to start and stop on target.
The shorter sight radius means I can move the gun faster into smaller places. Given a larger target — like a torso — I can get the sights on target accurately enough with a bit more speed.
This may be my favorite GLOCK yet. Review to follow.
