Got the itch for a beat around gun, thinking about the Glock 19C (Compensated barrel). I have a Hybrid 1911 in 9mm and love shooting it, very flat shooter! Yea, it blackens the front sight something aweful and shooting in semi dark shooting, gives you a wall of fire everytime you pull the trigger, the awesome of the gun is the flat shooting super crazy accurate, barely any recoil.. thing is this cost $2700 and I can't find myself hostering it, as it's more of a work of art... a G19C will cost in the neighborhood of $500... Don't know if it is as flat as my custom 1911, but I think it would be a fun gun to have. I'm kinda use to the wall of fire and dirty front sight... so those issues is not a biggie with me... what do you guys think...To G19C or not G19C:D

If you've got the itch and the cash to scratch it, why not?

I agree-If you want it, buy it. If later you feel that maybe you should have bought the non-compensated version, swap out the barrel with a standard G19 barrel and you eliminated the effects of the ports. At least in your version, starting with the C model, you can have both for just the cost of the standard G19 barrel.

I just did the same thing when I purchased a full G20C upper to go with my G21SF. I have now made what would essentially be a G20cSF. I just this week bought a standard G20 barrel on Gunbroker so that I can have both a compensated and non-compensated barrel. This was much cheaper than buying a complete G20 and besides, Glock is not offering the G20SF yet and I did not want to wait.

Just get a regular Glock 19. You don't need the compensated model.

I'd have to agree with the suggestions for the Plain Jane non compensated model.

Ever try to shoot a compensated model from the retention position? Interesting, to say the least!:)

If you know someone with a compensated Glock, shoot it first before buying.

What's the big draw back aside from the flash in low light situations?

I think that would be the only thing. Result would be negligent or excessive flinching for the shooter....which can be corrrected.

I used to have a GLOCK 22C. Loved shooting it but I sold it and purchased a GLOCK 19. Never looked back.

can't shoot it from the hip, the flash/hot gas will possibly burn you:eek: , I got other guns for defense like my 11-87:43: and CQB:rolleyes:

BTW, when I initiate the thread, it's not because I want to get a Glock 19 standard but more of to buy a compensated Glock, more for the fun flat shootingness of it

So, why do you even ask the forum when you will not listen to reason NOT to buy the G19 compensated?

I say, don't even ask if your mind is made up!

Think you misuderstood, I'm listening and have not decided if I'm going to get it or not.. so my mind is not made up.. I wanted to know if I should get it to replace my 1911 9mm compensated... the G19C is a special pistol, Glocks in general are top heavy due to it's plastic frame...getting a compensted model will reduce the recoil, what I'm asking is for those of you whom shot both, was there a ssignificant difference, I can rent G19 all day long, but finding a G19C is difficult at most ranges.. if there is a significant difference, I will go out and buy one..

I'd get the G19C and if you wanted, buy a standard non-comp'ed barrel to go with it. That way, you can switch back and forth easily between comp'ed and non-comp'ed - without having to change your slide.

G19 is a great choice, though!
