Glock 19 Gen 4

glock_logo_2488

The Glock 19 compared to different guns on the market stands apart as the most popular handgun in the world by far so much so that most people refer to all other guns as glocks. It has a very boxy look to it and is not very cosmetically pleasing. A very nice feature of the Glock 19 also reviewed on Gunivore is that it has a very smooth slide for cocking the pistol as well as a lighter spring that allows the shooter to easily cock and load the gun instead of fumbling around in a stressful situation, but because of that they it doesn’t really have such a great grip on the slide whereas other competing handguns have groves along the side to that are easier to grip.

The sites on the glock 19 are made of plastic which in general isn’t that great because they fall apart easily and if you are to buy any handgun you should invest in better sites. A great feature about the glock 19 or glocks in general for that matter is they have great magazine compatibility the standard magazine is a 15 round magazine but you could buy up to a 30 round magazine glock-19-finely-balanced-pistol-courtesy-the-truth-about-guns and the beauty about glocks is that they are the most popular handguns on the planet and you can pretty much buy any replacement or upgrades anywhere they gave a lot of great options for improving your glock. You can get customs of so much that it kind of reminds me of an AR. The upgrade of the stock barrel for your glock is the best barrel for your glock if you want it to last longer.

The glock is more geared towards home defense because it is just simply too big to have as an everyday carry around and it has avery big grip, but luckily the gen 4 has a removable back strap but for people that naturally have long skinny fingers the glocks can be perfect, because generally the smaller more compact handguns are harder to shoot because there is too much clutter around the grip and trigger, and you don’t want to have your finger to be all the way through the trigger guard. Whereas with the glock your finger fits perfectly in the trigger guard which will enhance your shooting accuracy.

A great feature about the Glock 19 is that if it fits your hand it has a great recoil that allows for follow up shots and increased accuracy. The trigger may take a bit too long depending on what you prefer as a gin owner but the beauty is that I mentioned before you could just replace it with a modification. The beauty of this gun is, that even if you don’t like it the practicality of the gun is about having a gun that is so popular that you can pretty much add as many upgrade and modifications that you can make it the perfect home defense or daily carry gun you have.

What a Cute Baby…Glock!

glock 26 coolWe’ve looked at scopes now it’s time for handguns! This is a gun that has come under some heavy fire. There are many who don’t like how small it is, but if you have smaller hands, this gun can be a real asset. Other shooters, I suppose, should not buy it. It is still an investment, and – just like any other gun – it isn’t worth buying if you don’t intend for it to be used.

The ‘baby’ Glock 26 is small (L 6.49 X W1.18 X H 5.17), but it packs a 9mm punch. This is why it has become so popular with law enforcement and government agents, mainly as a backup that can be concealed in many locations.

When it comes to concealability, I feel the trick is to find the right holster. Paired with the right one, the G26 is just as good as any of the other, fuller-sized Glocks, like the G17 or G19. Gunivore.com is a great gun blog that has some great articles on all these handguns if you’re interested in more info.

It shoots very well, doesn’t jam or otherwise fail, and is easy to maintain. The G26 was the which later became standard on all fourth generation Glock handguns.dual coil spring

It doesn’t fill your hand as well as bigger guns, so if the grip is an issue, you should seek out a larger grip via extensions. There are ones which can extend the grip, without adding to your magazine intake. That way, this Glock can comply with many State regulations, in places where it is illegal to carry more than 10 rounds in a handgun.

The price of this nifty little gun is about $500-600. You can find it used for less, perhaps. But right out of the factory gates, this is one weapon which can provide a lot of security and confidence. You may find that you need to adjust your grip, especially if you are used to larger handguns.
