2nd Gen Glock 19 desecration?
OK, so I got a sweet deal on a 2nd gen G19 for $250 w/2 LEO marked 15 round mags. I got it cheap because the frame is a little chewed up and the slide has some nicks and small pits in it. It has night sights that still glow so that's a plus.

Now, the 19 doesn't fit my hand well due to the hump being in the palm of my hand as opposed to the 17 where the hump rests just below it. So I was going to send it off to ColdBore for a grip reduction, but I can't help but feel I'm going to destroy a collector.

Now the other side is telling me that due to its condition it's not really all that collectible and I should just get as much comfortable use out of it as I can since I'll be using it as my daily carry when I'm not carrying my 1911.

So what do you guys think? Would I be desecrating a collectible piece or should I just go ahead and not worry about it?

It's your weapon, do what you want. Have fun. :wavey:

$250 is a great price. Good job!

I think you should send it to me ,so it can cavort in my safe with my 2nd gen M19.Who knows what would be the result of that relationship,other that the knots someone would put on my head for getting another one.Seriously,fix it up the way you want it and ENJOY.

Collectors generally want high end condition pieces. Unless it is a rarer variation (non-Austrian proofed with 19 still on trigger guard, etc.) go for it.

Well I guess it's off to ColdBore!

I shot my M19 yesterday and gave it a good workout with several of its brother Glocks. I like them but never considered them to be Holy or sacred. If it was my pistol, I'd modify it in any way that suited me. A $250 Glock? Geeze, sniffing out a bargain like that earns you the right to do as you please!
