Glock 19 build

Postby stew47 » Sat Jun 23, 2018 12:19 pm

Hello everyone. So I’ve always been partial to gen 3. Not sure why. Always been super reliable. I’ve thought if I found a rtf gen 3 at right price I’d get it. So a stripped gen 3 19 rtf power came up at good price so I got it. Over next few months or year I’d like to put together nice super reliable pistol. I’ve been looking at sites such as BTC and Suarez. Glockmeister and bunch of others on reading list too. Like the vickers glocks as well. Anyways so many options I’m lost. What should money be spent on and what can I do to save few bucks as well? Not opposed to buying used slide, barrels, but want quality springs and trigger. Want to be able to add trijcon or other quality sight in future. So what says the forum?

I'll focus on the barrel. If you reload, the aftermarket offers replacements that allow you to use lead bullets. A couple friends have done that for the $$ savings.

If you want a "super reliable pistol" why not use Glock OEM parts?

I'm personally unaware of any aftermarket parts that can demonstrably be shown to increase Glock reliability. Not saying all aftermarket stuff is bad, but if reliability is top priority then maybe start with a reliable baseline before going to exotic parts.

If cost is no option then I’d go with a Saurez slide pre cut for an RMR and finished in NP3.

I just picked up a new G19, (gen 4), special edition with a few extras.

I won't be changing anything about it and it may end up being carried from time to time.

Good luck with your modifications !
