    Glock 19 Vs. Glock 19C ???

    I am thinking of trading my 9mm glock 19 for a glock 19C (compensated ported barrel). I like the way the glock 19 handles and shoots. My shot groups are ok, but I'm always looking for that edge to improve. has anyone here shot both guns. I'd appreciate your thoughts on any differences experienced in shooting these two guns.

    I have to admit that i have never shot the 19c. But, I do have one question. Are you going to use this as a carry piece?

    jualdeaux,
    I usually carry G26 but may switch off and carry G19C if I get one.

    nicolasrichards,
    I wondered about flames in low light plus its probably louder report, if that would throw your aim off, in a real life carry situation.(would't have the hearing protection on)

    The "c" is not going to give you any edge at all. It will be more of a fault than a help.

    What advantage?

    I have a Glock 19 and it is pretty tame to shoot, from a recoil or muzzle jump standpoint. The only reason for compensating a gun would be to reduce the muzzle jump, but there isn't much to reduce on this gun. So I'm wondering why bother?

    Now if it were a .50 caliber S&W that would be a different story.

    Actually, it wasn't the low light issue that made me ask that question. What I'd be more concerned about is what might happen if you have to shoot from retention or another position where the gun is very close to you. That upward blast might just throw debris or, at the very least, flames right up in your face or clothes.

    For the minuscule help with recoil you might get I believe that the C models give you far too many other potential problems.

    I"ve shot both and have a Glock 19 but not the 19C. That should tell you what I think.

    I like compensators on high recoiling handguns, and even rifles. My 44 Mag is "comped" and comps are great on a 1911 45 ACP, but I just don't find the comp to be of much use on a 9mm. I say that as someone that shoots the "hotter" Corbon loads, European ammunition and has a bad case of, "If a little gunpowder is good, more is better" when reloading.

    Also, if you are planning to use this gun for self defense I most definately would not have a comp on it. The reason is, if you fire from "Retention" you will probably burn yourself, and it hurts.

    Personally I would spend my time at the range putting more ammo down range in a controlled manner to learn how to "tighten up" your shot groups. Also, shoot at distance. At 25 Yards you should be able to cover all six shots with your hand. This will "tighten up" your groups when you get closer to the target. Also, TRIGGER CONTROL.

    I hope this helps.

    Compensated Glock?
    Shoot one from retention...(holster level) before you purchase, and that will answer your question.

    A ported pistol for ccw? Idon't think so because in low lighting the
    ports will blind you and make you a target.

    If you MUST get the G19C, then at least buy another standard G19 barrel that you can swap into the pistol when you DON'T want the comp effect. My opinion? (and I carry a G19)...Is that; you won't gain anything, you eventually won't like it, and the downside far outweighs the upside.

    BINGO nailed it right on the head!!!!.

    Its not the flames shooting out at night that would be the problem blinding you. Its the hot gas, un burnt powder flying up into my face shooting the gun from a retentive position.

    Also, alot of those ported pistols if you don't keep them clean have issues after a low round count.
