    Rattler Glock 19

    I have an 80 yr old friend who purchased a G19 from an acquaintance. He called me over to install a 3# connector, as he handed me the pistol, he said something feels funny. Someone had filled the grip void with steel shot. When he handed it to me, it sounded like a bb gun. We pulled the plug and drained it like a bathtub. I've owned Glocks for twenty + yrs, this was a first for me. So watch where you step, there could be a rattler Glock lurking!

    only ever seen it in rifles! for balance or recoil control can't see a reason for it in a pistol like a G19

    I'm not sure myself. Someone had rolled up a piece of paper and jammed it into the area between the grip / trigger mechanism housing. When I removed the trigger housing to replace the connector, four of the steel shot fell out. I DON'T THINK IT IS A SAFE RECOIL REDUCER!!

    Maybe they planned on tossing it in a river after a armed robbery and were afraid it would float.
