The GLOCK 19 9mm Pistol is ideal for versatile use through reduced dimensions compared with the standard pistol size. With the proven caliber of 9×19, it has found worldwide distribution in security services. In addition to being used as a conventional service weapon, it is suitable for concealed carry or as a backup weapon. For instance, many of the elite pilots of the USAF for instance trust the GLOCK 19 for their efficient defense in emergency situations.
The new Gen4 GLOCK 19 has several new features designed to satisfy the most demanding consumers. It is based on a full size G17/G22 MBS (multiple back strap) frame with a reduced short frame trigger mechanism housing. The multiple back strap system allows the user to change the circumference of the grip to fit their individual hand size.
The grip has three options; a short frame version, medium frame or large frame that are easily changed and secured with a single pin.
The grip angle of the GLOCK “Safe Action” Pistol is not changed by back strap modifications. This ensures that the shooter does not shoot high or low when modifying the back strap or when shooting with a different GLOCK Pistol.
Additionally, the Gen4 has a new Rough Textured Frame (Gen4 RTF) surface designed to enhance grip traction and is present on the frame as well as the interchangeable back straps.
Internally, the original recoil spring has been replaced with a dual recoil spring assembly. The dual recoil spring assembly noticeably reduces the recoil while simultaneously increasing the life cycle of the assembly.
GLOCK Test Firing
During development every GLOCK pistol is test fired with overcharged ammunition to establish its safety prior to delivery. In addition GLOCK pistols are precision test fired. A laser target test device was especially developed for this purpose to coordinate the hit pattern with the line of sight. Every GLOCK customer can rely on receiving a weapon that has been tested in the factory and which operates reliably “out of the box” without compromises or expensive additions!
