Vickers Glock Gen4 or Glock Gen5, Model 19
« on: September 09, 2017, 07:55:05 pm »
Just looking to add a Glock 19 to the collection. 

Any reason to get a Gen4 Vickers with the upgrades on a Gen4, versus the Gen5 with the factory improvements ?  Local gun shop has both in stock.  Thanks for input.

I have small hands, and like the finger grooves... especially on my short grip 23 (19 size)...the added depth of the grip panels and ambi slide release does nothing for me.... if you can rent them, I would suggest shooting both first... regards

I think, in the G19, it's mainly comes down to how the grip feels.    I don't think a whole lot else changed in that model.

They did nothing for me either, I wish I had tried it before I bought it lol.

I will pay more attention to the Gen. 5's when they come out in MOS.
