    Default 19X or Gen4 19(w/extend Mag-XGrip Sleeve)

    OK really would like to know people's experience with the 19x and if it is worth getting or should I just get a gen4 and use 17 Mags with either an XGrip extension or some other Mag Extension.
    This setup would essentially mimic the 19x and currently I can get the Gen4 for about $100 less than a 19x

    Just curious what everyone's thoughts are on the choices.
    Thanks

    The x-grip for using G17 mags into a G19 doesn't add additional finger grip area, it just makes for less of a "there's mag sticking past your grip" look.

    To me, the 19x is not particularly interesting. I can just use a G17 mag in my 19 and not care about the visual. I mean, I may still end up getting one anyways, because I'm a glockaholic and seem to end up with everything they make eventually... but it's not on my list at the moment.

    Yeah that is pretty much where I am at but I have a GSSF Blue Label coupon to use before it expires so need to make the decision now. I have a gen2 19 so dont really need a gen4 g19.

    my other choice would be a G21 but not sure if I want to add another caliber to my collection right now.

    Why don't you consider the Glock 34 ? That way you're getting something somewhat different in the same caliber.

    After seeing your list I think if you’re definitely going to buy one get the 19x. At least you will have the one that some people who already own 19s think they need.

    Making same decision, 19x comes with night sights I think.

    Decision made

    19x it is.. I figure I can always pick up a used G19 cheaper than I would be able to get a 19x.

    Thanks
