glock 19 gen 3
glock 19 gen 3 price for sale barrel accessories is the little brother to the Glock 17 gen 3. Both pistols are 9mm and very popular for both personal and professional use.
Being a compact pistol it is versatile enough to fill multiple roles. It fits well in the service and range pistol position while being a great choice for concealed carry purposes.
The third generation of Glocks was released all the way back in 1998 and is still a popular choice to this day. This generation introduced then-new calibers to the Glock lineup while redesigning some features included on their current pistols.
The safe action system is a staple of the Glock design. It works by allowing the gun to have 3 passive safety that operated independently from each other. The system includes:
- A trigger safety
- A firing pin safety
- A drop safety
This design allows the trigger pull to be the same throughout the course of fire. whereas traditional hammer-fired pistols would have a longer and heavier first shot when they are in double-action, compared to when they are in single-action.
glock 19 gen 3 accessories
There have been changes since the second generation some welcome additions, others not so much.
The grip texture on the backstrap, has been enhanced giving the user a positive hold on the pistol.
Gen 3 also introduced the infamous finger grooves that have become a hot topic of conversation between Glock enthusiasts.
I swear some people look like this when they talk about the whole finger groove thing…
A thumb rest was cut into the frame to give a more natural feel to the very blocky pistol.
On gen 3 and new Glocks, the user is given the option to attach a laser or light with the accessory rail. This greatly increases usability in darker environments.
Another easy way to tell a gen 2 from a glock 19 gen 3 price for sale barrel Glock is the double pin setup above the trigger. Gen 2s only have a single pin whereas gen 3s have the extra pin for the locking block to give it more support.
Later-generation 3 models also included an upgraded extractor that also seconded as a loaded chamber indicator.
The factory trigger gives a consistent 5.5-pound pull. Glock triggers are known to work themselves in and get better over time so if you are able to pick one of these guns up used you will save yourself time getting the pull weight down.
Glock pistols are made with only 34 component parts. This simplicity means there are fewer things to go wrong with the firearm and wear out.
Glocks have always been known for their reliability. Whether or not you like the brand it is an undeniable fact that these guns will perform in adverse conditions and are durable enough to take a beating.
It is an old saying that a firearm is only as accurate as the person behind the trigger. This is true, but it still helps when the gun in question has a great barrel to help the shooter out. I have always found Glocks to be accurate pistols with good barrels. I think the polygonal rifling really works well with these guns as long as you don’t put unjacketed lead bullets through it.
The form factor of the Glock 19 lends well to concealed carry purposes. It is especially a good option if you are someone with big hands as the grip on the 19 is only about an inch smaller than the full-sized 17.
I’d say the biggest upgrade between the second and third generation would be the accessory rail. This gives the user more customization options than previous generations could offer and is a fantastic addition.
