    Hi all, I recently purchased a g19 gen4 and have since been to the range twice with it, running 4 different types of ammo through it. It DOES have the much talked about heavier "03" spring in it.

    brought it home, opened it up, put in a very small amount of rem oil on all of the factory specified spots and waited patiently until i could go to the range.

    after two range sessions:
    100-winchester whitebox
    200-winchester NATO
    100-remington UMC
    50-range rounds (not sure what type it was but it was dirty as all hell...wont be buying anymore of it)

    had ZERO malfunctions and was overall happy with my decision to buy a gen4 since it felt much better in my hand than the gen3 and I can also fiddle with the adjustable backstrap feature.

    Picked up three of the 250 round remington UMC boxes, 400 rounds of winchester NATO (both were on sale) and also a couple boxes of hydra shocks. I will be putting this honey of a pistol through a good test in my next few visits to the range and you guys will be the first to hear about any malfunctions.

    thank you, i know its not the "best" range report out there...i like to keep things simple and to the point:)

    i was thinking of posting some pictures but i figured we have all seen more than enough bone stock glocks.

    well guys and gals, as of a couple hours ago i have gone through all of the ammo i listed above along with another 100 rounds of federal champion.

    there was ONE malfunction while shooting weak side, one handed, at a 45 degree angle (halfway gangsta) with the federal champion ammo and it was a stovepipe.


    SO after about 1400 rounds in a somewhat short time the g19 gen4 along with the heavy spring has done exactly what its suposed to do. go bang.

    happy shooting.
