    Just obtained a Glock 19

    Manufacture date of March, 1989, pristine condition, Austrian markings, with about 300 rounds through it total (I know the owner).
    Any thoughts on whether I should send it to Glock for mandatory and/or optional upgrades? Any reason as to why I should not take it to the range for practice? Any reason as to why I should not make this my primary ccw? Any collector value? Thanks

    No collector value, just carry it and enjoy. There is no need to send it to Glock, unless something is broke.... and if it aint broke, dont fix it.

    Thanks for the prompt reply, SIXTO... I really like the 2nd generation frame and will alternate carrying it concealed with my Glock 26 and Ruger SP101. Happy Thanksgiving to you.

    Very nice... I might think about giving it a good cleaning and lubricate in appropriate spots. The Glock 19 is very nice size carry weapon, with very nice capacity.

    If you want to keep that frame keep it from Glock. They usually will change the second gen's out for thrid gen's if you send it in.

    I picked up a 2nd generation Glock 19 w/ Pre-Ban 15 rd mag up here in NY. Prefer it over the 3rd gens with finger grooves. Enjoy your new, older Glock.

    Congrats on the Glock. Man that thing isn't even broke in yet. I bet it still has the red Glock grease in it. Put a bunch more rounds through it, carry it and don't send it back to Glock.

    Thanks to everyone, for your thoughts. Hey, LVLabs and Longbow, thanks for the advice as to the potential cosequences of my sending a 2nd gen frame back to Glock (i.e., loss of frame). I thought that they might favor switching "new for old". Although I would not want them to switch frames, I can see their logic: releasing an older model frame back to the owner in lieu of a newer, "upgraded" frame may have adverse consequences to them for products liability purposes in the event of a defect or malfunction of the "replaced" frame.
    My only concern is that I've read that some of the internal parts may have been recalled (i.e., "mandatorily upgraded"). Glocktalk.com has a list of such things. Thanks again, all! Glad I found defensivecarry.com

    A Glock is a GLock, built to run and run. Your's is a new old gun. Just shoot it, like the others said. It has barely even been broke in yet yet.

    I just reclaimed my old Glock 19 back from my son who's had for the last 4 yrs. I bought mine used from a friend about ten yrs ago, who put about 300 rounds through it. I put another 1000 through it and gave it to my son who's put over 6000 rounds through it. Only thing I had to do is replace trigger spring. Everything else looks good!

    There was a parts upgrade by Glock some time around there. I'll check to see when that was. I'm an armorer and in the Phila area. If you need the new parts (free from Glock!), I'll be happy to put them in for you. Takes about 5 min. Welcome to the G19 club!
