    Glock Gen 5 .40 S&W

    The Gen 5 Glock in .40 S&W has been out for a while now, but I’ve never shot one. I’d like to hear from anyone who has shot either a G23 or G22 Gen 5, especially if they can compare it to the Gen 3/4 models. The Gen 5s have a slightly wider slide with more mass that supposedly tames recoil a...

    Looking for 9mm for less than 600 dollars - leaning towards a Glock

    Hi, I'm new to this forum. I'm looking for a semi-automatic 9mm pistol. My maximum budget is 500 dollars but I want to spend 400 or less. I haven't really looked at guns over 400. The best I can find that are legal in California are the Ruger Security 9, SAR B6C, and Beretta APX. The Smith &...

    Glock 17L Build

    Always wanted a G17L since I saw one. Always thought of it as a "9MM Magnum" since the slide/sight radius was such. I couldn't get one for the longest time because of where I lived and I just bought a 17L slide on GB. Stainless steel, looks really nice. Big reason I jumped on it is because it...

    Which to carry: Glock or DW VBob?

    Hi I am traveling with family for a vacation and wanted to take one pistol with me. I am undecided between these: 1. Glock 19 2. DW VBob 1911 .45 I shoot both well. Both are conceal-able and very reliable. I will be attending a few wedding functions and social events. Some late night travel...

    Guppy Belly 40S&W cases, use or lose? = done

    I am in the midst of processing a 1000-lot of 1xF 40S&W cases. (First time loading 40S&W) After I sorted for head stamps I had a bunch of R-P cases, and some (17 out of 224) had glock-bulge. Ran them all through my new G-Rx die. The guppy belly is gone, but there is still a 'frown' (groove)...

    Warranty on Glocks, Kahrs, and Springfields?

    Does anyone have any experience with the warranty on Glocks, Kahrs, or Springfields? Glocks only come with an official 1 year warranty but I've heard that they repair them for the lifetime of the pistol and even if it's from nornal wear and tear. However, having had no personal experience with...

    Watching Gemini Man today and one is using a The Brügger & Thomet USW-A1 (Universal Service Weapon)

    Anyone have any info / experience eith the Brügger & Thomet USW-A1 (Universal Service Weapon) ? I have many pistols with good lights / lasers and several also have red dots. It looks like they sell kits for your GLock 17, Glock 19 and p320 platforms. Anyone hear of them. Any point when you...

    Glock 26 Gen 5 vs Smith and Wesson M&P9 M2.0 3.6" Compact

    For anyone who happens to have experience with both of these guns, which one feels better to shoot, in your opinion (trigger, recoil, grip/ergonomics, etc)? I hear that the M&P has better ergonomics and provides a better grip, and is more naturally pointable than the Glock 26. I also hear that...

    Would a Glock 26/27/33 work in a micro-roni?

    The smallest size they have is the Glock 19 size. The 26s slide serrations would fit in the rear of the micro-roni's sleeve but it's the barrel end I'm concerned about. On the Micro-roni/CAA there are vents that vent the muzzle blast. If the barrel of the Glock is too short, I'm worried the...

    Glock magazine followers

    Hello, I have a Glock magazine question. I've got some gen 3 Glock 22 magazines. I know you can shoot 9mm out of a G22 mag as it comes. But if I warned to put 9mm followers in these 40cal mags, which followers could I use? I'm guessing not the orange gen 5 ones. The other followers I've come...

    Glock 17 Review

    I recently bought my first Glock (a 17) and I wanted to report my impressions and results with it. I have always respected Glocks for what they are (reliable, well priced, accurate, durable) but due to the triggers I have always felt that they were not for me. My background is mostly SA triggers...

    Range Report: Lightning Tap Glock Trigger

    A buddy needed to some money and he had a Gen 3 G-17 for sale. The stock sights are pretty terrible so I ordered some Hi-Viz sights. Usually I put Apex triggers in my Glocks but I had wanted to try a Lightning Tap Double Action Trigger. I got in touch with them via facebook and learned that...

    Siderlock Safety for Glock

    Hi I was looking at a friend’s Glock who has a siderlock safety installed. I couldn’t hold back and told him that how I did not like it at all. My reasoning was simple. Glock triggers are pretty safe to be carried loaded. Not only this contraption increases one more thing to remember in a...

    Just picked up a Glock 30s

    Haven't shot it yet, but I love the feel. I must say, I do like the gen3's. I have night sights on her, and a set of Talon grips and a titanium guide rod on the way, but wondered what else might be worth doing to it. I know the list of Glock upgrades is LONG, but if you have a 30s and have...

    Glock 17 or Glock 19x?

    Glock 17 is a Gen 4, or would you trade it and use a G19X instead? Only problem is the 19x doesn't take standard mags, whereas plenty are available for the 17. I haven't shot the 19x yet, though I've handled it. I'd be 100% satisfied keeping the 17. But I like the 19X cause it's a "deluxe"...

    9mm Out Of A Glock 20/21?

    I have a number of Glocks 20 and 21s. Lately though I've been thinking of trying out 9mm ofr the range. I know Glocks in 40 S&W can be converted into 9mm but can a large frame Glock like a 20 or 21 be converted into 9mm? And will Glock 17 magazines actually work in a Glock 20/21? And how about a...

    Glock MOS, hit or miss?

    If one was contemplating trying a red dot sight on a defensive handgun, and was already confident in and proficient with the Glock, does Glock's MOS system provide a convenient and practical option? I have heard some stories of optics rattling loose or even flying off, apparently some confusion...
