Other than that nothing else to report. Even the rear adjustable sight has held together and stood the test of time!
Used it extensively in the early 2000 with qualifying twice a year in the police department till I retired. I still carry it and I feel it is very reliable.
He isn’t doing much fishing anymore, I may just swap him for an EZ rack Shield for HD.
They remain as ugly as sin 35 years later, lol.
Love the Gen 3s and up. But the Gen 1 Glocks are becoming collector's items and some are going for unbelievable amounts. Who would have thought a Gen 1 G19 would go for close to $10,000.
While there is no way in heck I would pay that for any Glock.
The Gen1 19 isnt something that was widely available. A very small handful were imported and sold to a state agency.
Just means that they are not used a lot. Glocks that get shot a lot tend to loose frame rails.
I don’t expect it to crumble to dust within the next 10 years, but frankly, if it does, I’ll have gotten my money’s worth from it.
I'd expect the polymer to last quite some time—on the order of tens of thousands of years. As far as a 'service life', at least a couple or three centuries.
My VP70Z is going strong.
Still ugly as sin though.
Makes me wonder why all these posts I see of people buying some steel frame whatever because they want the grandchildren's grandchildren's children to inherit it like they're even going to know who their ancestor was who bought it 200 years ago out of their 31 other ancestors. Besides, the likelihood is that the great grandkids will sell it to buy Martian Cocaine for a bachelor party.
If he is a really shrewd businessman, perhaps my great, great, great, great, great grandson can trade one in for an Orion slave-girl.
The frame is generally the least of all concerns when it comes to pistol longevity.
