I want a Glock...

...but which one? I am either looking for a 17 or 19. I see a lot of 19's for sale and it tends to be more common. Is there a reason why? I was looking at someone's G19, its the compact version of the G17 right? But what is the difference? Just the size? What are the disadvantages and advantages of the two? Thanks in advance guys!

Size is the only difference. The Glock 19 tends to be a bit more common but whichever you get, you will not be disappointed. I believe the Glock 19 is about 1/2 an inch shorter. It's compatible with Glock 17 mags (but they will stick out the bottom about an inch).

Here's my Meister Glock 17:

Thanks for the reply. So in other words, I am getting the same thing but with the option of two different looks. Does holding it feel any different?

I'd say make your way out to a game and feel both. You're bound to find someone with a Glock 19 and a 17 or 18 (the 18 is the full auto version of the 17). The grip on the 19 is a bit shorter and smaller I think. It's personal preference more than anything. I've held both and didn't find a huge difference.

Thanks dpvu. Does the brand matter as well? I prefer KSC/KWA but there are TM's that are out there. Whats the brand of your 17?

With KSC there is more then size between the 17 and 19. The 19 is far newer and has some improvements such as more metal internals, heavier frame, better finish on frame and so on. If you want a 19 make sure it's KSC if you want a 17 have a look at the TM it's newer then ksc's 17

I had a 19 and 26 and a 26 advance... the 26 advance sucks, the other 2 had metal slides but i liked the 26 a lot more cause it was so small and sexy.

KSC G19 all the way, hands down. Get a metal slide on it and the weight will impress you! Literally feels like a real steel Glock. The frame is metalized ABS Or polymer of some sort which is very solid and heavy. The G17 is more toylike, ABS frame that really sucks.

And, the only differences between different Glocks is the caliber, the height and length. So any holster made for a Glock will fit any Glock out there.

Wow, sounds like a lot of Glock owners. I think I am convinced to invest in the G19 KSC. I don't know why but I seem to like KSC/KWA GBB's. Thanks guys.

I found the KSC trigger/hammer mechanism in their Glocks to be horrible. Hard to work on, common to see some parts break. I've owned a couple that had simple parts break, but their replacement would not restore function... just my experience though, some people swear by them.

KJW is internally a TM Glock 26 clone, more or less.

So I am guessing that some get one for the good batches and some get one from the bad batches? Would you recommend a TM G17? TM's are generally more reliable I hear.

I'd take a TM over a KSC any day.

Rather than making a new thread... Do they make Glock 20C's?
