Yesterday I picked up a Glock 19 gen 3 from a recently retired LEO. Needless to say this gun has some holster wear but in overall good shape for a 10 year old gun. Only other minor issues are the Trijicon sites are mucked up and no longer "glow" and the magazine catch is worn but holds if you "jam" the magazine in (I've ordered a new one)." This is my first Glock and my first polymer frame gun so this is kind of a new experience. Previous and current guns in my collection have all been Colt & Remington 1911's, Beretta 92 & 84, Ruger SP101's, Colt Mustang and a few other revolvers.
So I went to the range today with both the G19 and Beretta 94. Of course I'm very comfortable with the 92 and can hit a gnat's ass at 10 yards with it, but I never expected there to be such a huge difference in accuracy. Every shot was a little low and WAY left. I adjusted my grip, made very deliberate trigger pulls and was still way left. Now I'm not claiming to be the best shot on the planet but I'm very confident in my abilities so I knew something was off. After a few more rounds and a thorough examination of the gun I discovered the rear sight wasn't centered. DOH!!! Not wanting to waste anytime jacking with it I put the G19 away and finished the day with the 92.
Overall I was happy with the feel of the G19 and looking forward to taking it out again with new sights installed. It went bang every time and no other issues. This will probably end up being my EDC so I'm needing some suggestions on a durable sight system.
Thanks for reading and your suggestions.
