it has a threaded barrel, with a thread protector on it. can accommodate a compensator or a suppressor. plus, another 0.6 inches of barrel. giving more muzzle velocity.

on the 19X? no. in fact, i am unaware of any standard glocks that come with a threaded barrel. i bought the threaded barrels for the 43X and 19X.

my 19X came with tritium night sights, 1- 17 round mag, 2-19 round mags, and some beaver tail add-ons (small, medium, and large) i put a plus 5 mag extension on the 17 round mag, giving me 22+1.

the 19X is a cross between the 17 and 19. it has a G19 length slide, with a G17 frame.

Yeah, they definitely added it after market. The extra 0.6 inch of barrel length adds a decent amount of muzzle velocity. Threaded barrels range anywhere from $150-225 depending on manufacturer/quality.

Damn, mine is just the plain ole Glock 43.

Does your wife have issues with recoil? I’m an old lady pede and I’m thinking of getting a larger Glock like the 45. Little 43 kicks like a freaking mule!

the recoil is not that bad. she also has a griffin micro compensator to screw on the barrel. reduces recoil by about 20-25%. she can shoot 2 inch groups at 7 meters. i am pretty damn proud of her!

Ohhhh I want one of those!! It's just a bit much for me, I've only been shooting for 6 months now but I'm hitting inside the black a lot! I plink with my little Browning 22, love that little gun.

I will look into the micro compensator, if I'm allowed to have one in California ....arizona next year!!!! Thanks so much!

I shoot my instructor's freaking 40 caliber and it has less recoil than my Glock. But that thing weighs around 3 freaking pounds lol!

if you ever come to vegas, you can shoot my glock 19X. i have a killer innovations compensator that reduces recoil by about 60%. that 9mm pistol is like shooting a pellet gun! 🤣🤣🤣

hmmm I've been wanting to visit Vegas lately lol! I really need something like that, I love my little Glock but I have really tiny lady hands and haven't perfected my grip yet.

I can handle my 22 no problem and shoot a fly off the ass of my horse with that thing. But the Glock just has too much kick, I have to re-adjust my grip between each shot. Damn it.

Moving to Arizona next year and believe me I will be getting all the cool toys we aren't allowed to have here in California! If I so much as put a dot of nail polish on my front site I can no longer carry that gun concealed, it's considered modified. Just fucking kill me!

how did you get a glock 43 in california? I thought the registry was closed a long time ago?

1
Brookes 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yes I bought it last year. There are a variety of 9mm that you can no longer get here. But I bought this used from my local FFL guys and it was owned by a cop who was selling it. It's almost new and in excellent shape.

I wanted a Kimber that was larger and would have less recoil for me but we aren't allowed to have that certain model here. So when I move to Arizona next year I'm going hog freaking wild and buying everything I can't have here.

I have to show my damn birth certificate here to buy freaking ammo! California SUCKS!!!! I've already met with a couple gun clubs down in the Tucson area and they seem super nice and very safe. We're going to learn to skeet shoot too, now that looks like a serious good time!!!

Try experimenting with bullet weight. Some people do better with 115gr, others with 124gr. In theory, the 115s should be a little easier. But I find the 124s to be better for me. 147s can be a bit much on the sub compacts. You could also get the liberty rounds like they got in that pic here. That will help some with the snap and they sail rather quicklike!.

Thanks so much will try that! You're a very helpful pede!

The liberty rounds will be expensive target practice but very nice self defense, just fyi. But definitely experiment with the bullet weight. It can make a really big difference. The other thing is to look at a ballistics table for various factory loads and try some lower power ones if the weights don’t seem to be improving.

http://www.ballistics101.com/9mm.php

This site isn’t the be all end all, but I find it to be quite handy for quick reference. It has a lot of different factory loads. If you aren’t seeing much difference between bullet weights, start looking at loads with lower weights + lower muzzle energy. Something like 115grain with under 330ft/lb muzzle energy. That ought to be helpful.

Are those liberty rounds?

How does that trigger perform? Or is it just a trigger housing change?

2

  • Yes, 2,000+ FPS Liberty Civil Defense. Shreds Level III plates.

  • The trigger is great. Tyrant Designs I.T.T.S. trigger.

  • Shield Arms 15 round mag in that tiny little 9mm!

15 rounds?? serious!? wow...isn't factory mag just 10?

1
vegaspatriot1776 [S] 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yes, factory is just 10 rounds. Shield Arms figured out a way to stack them and get 15 in the same exact space. You can even buy a +5 mag extension to give you 20+1. LOL

Wow that’s nuts! I was seriously torn between that and the p365xl. I went the sig route because of the 2 extra rounds even though the 43x felt a lot better in the hand. Am kinda over red dots on pistols and don’t think I will ever purchase another that way. I may pick up a 43x.

FYI, if into appendix carry (I know some just hate it or can’t) my ANR with a glock 29 works better than anything I have tried with a p365xl. And there’s nothing wrong with my sig rigs. They are good. The ANR is that awesome.
