Found my GEN4 G19 and its a 357.

Took a chance and went to the local gun show this morning - my goal - find (in order of preference) a GEN4 in G19, G30 or G26 at a reasonable price.

As soon as I walk in I head over to the AJC Sports Shop table - I have bought many guns from them - they normally have good prices.

GEN4 G19 $710 - G26 $610 No G30.

So I take a walk around and find a guy selling GEN4 G19 for $579.99.

He had 4 of them at this price - and was in process of selling two.

I had a choice - serial # ??? 462 or ??? 357

So I figured it must be my lucky day - I always knew I would buy a 357 someday - guess today is as good as any.


Sort of strange - $580 for a Glock 19 is more than I ever thought I would pay - I figure I over paid $40 or $50 - maybe more if this gun buying frenzy ever ends - but at this point I don't care.


General Glocking

All I need to do now is decide which smooth trigger I want to install (GEN3 or 4) install some night sights - and of course take it to the range.

I though he went in looking for a G19 and came out with a G32 LOL.

Congratulations on the new gun!
I'm grappling with waiting or buying myself these days.

I went to the show around 9:15 AM was on my way home before 10:00 - I only live a few miles from the show - so around 2:00 PM I decided to go back and walk the show.

The $710 GEN4 G19 and the $610 GEN4 G26 were still available -

IMHO this is a good sign - people have finally said - screw these high prices I am waiting.

The guy selling GEN4 G19's for $580 was sold out.

Think I will put a few hundred rounds down range before I make any changes - then night sights and a smooth trigger is all she needs -

Still wondering GEN3 or GEN4 trigger - don't be surprised if I start an additional thread to get this answered - or maybe I should learn how to do a search.

ANYONE KNOW what the function of the "bump" is on the GEN4 trigger?

Is this the only difference?
