I like it, judging by all the feedback here and elsewhere I should have no problem finding one in stock

Video here. https://www.full30.com/video/1b908493c8de1784af3a1a7d88ac1984

Summary,   rail has 1913 size slot, no grip cut out on front (won't take gen 5 mags), PVD finish in coyote , dual recoil spring. The rest is gen 5

For Glock guys i don't know if this is a win or not.

Good video, informative, I like the lanyard ring and extension on the front strap, that'll cut down on pinching your hand. But I still can't see it as much more then slapping some lipstick on a pig.

Glock seems to have hired some of the product development people that Ruger could no longer afford to keep on retainer.  The folks who have made a living dreaming up crap no one wants or needs instead of designing the products everyone keeps asking for.  Like a single-stack Glock 19 sized handgun, or a Glock carbine.

I'm not wishing for the man to die but I suspect that once Gaston passes away we might actually some neat products come out.

In my opinion this is the perfect pistol to combine with a threaded barrel, the reason I am buying one

It really seems like a designer at Glock was staring at their drafting table, picked up a small drafting square, pondered it intently, and two hours later suddenly said "What if we made a gun where the slide and the grip were the exact same length?!" and it, like, totally blew his mind.

I really think that they thought they would win the contract hands down, despite not meeting all criteria,  and started production. Then when they lost, realized they had to dump some pistols. Thus the 19X was born. Then again maybe we'll see separate slides available with longer dust covers to convert to a 17 on the 19 front.

Well, yes, that is the most logical and obvious reason for the 19X to exist.  But I still want to make fun of it.  :)

They didn't do all the testing. They got through all the pistols but the Glock and sig and then made a decision which was based on cost.

It is truly an Austrian FNS-9. 19 slide, 17 rounds, ambi slide lock and mag release (oops, well not quite; missed it by that much), lanyard loop, no finger grooves...

They probably thought the mil contract would be won with liquor and hookers like the other contracts they're used to, so they started tooling up early. 

It looks like it would balance similar to a commander as others have said, or to a Beretta Centurion (which Beretta REALLY NEEDS TO PUT BACK INTO PRODUCTION!). It'll probably be just fine, and I kind of like it. I wouldn't mind shooting one, but probably won't buy one since I just don't need to buy anything else right now.

I noticed here also as on other forums the same thing, which is all the folks complaining about the large grip and small slide are really not very familiar with current modern guns and are just "Running their Jaws" since at least 6 + more of the current most popular guns have basically the same dimensions as the 19X, Sig P320 Carry, FN 509, FNS, SW M&P FS, XDm 3.8 , VP9 all follow the same format as the 19x or I should say the 19x is following their format,

The only 1 on my list which s about 1/4' longer in slide is the M&P 2.0!  So if u got 1 of these guns and u hate the Glock then get rid of ur other guns on the list!

Nough Said!

Just stating Facts, i also should have included the P99 in my list! I do plan on getting a 19X, cheapest online price i seen for pre-order was $644. but someone ordered 1 from his LGS for $599. + Tax, so i would think they would be about $550. online?

I have only 1 Glock a 27  bought in 1995 or so and its my EDC inside a tuckable holster under my shirts with no issue printing and i use a 13 rd. model 22 mag with a grip extender on the 27 and find it perfect for me!

Point taken, but I don't own any of those so there's that. I'm also just speculating since the discussion came up. No reason for me to buy one when I can just slap in a standard mag on my 19 with a Taran +5 and be essentially the same thing.  Again, don't agree with the direction they went but I don't have buy or carry one so it's ultimately irrelevant to me.

Seems to be a rich man's FNH FNS.  Doubt it comes with a 3rd mag like the FNH does though and probably sells for a $100+ more.  Doesn't excite me that much.  I will just hang on to my FNH.

Well, now having seen a couple, I can say it doesn't have the annoying grip cut out that the Gen 5 pistols have. THAT feels better. The triggers are unusually smooth for a Glock, almost like they've had a polish job. The slide is almost a gold tone, actually looks pretty nice.

All Glocks since the Gen 4 came out come with 3 mags. Unless the dealer or distributor swiped them or something. Glocks have the whole magazine/parts/holster commonality & availability thing going for them, so there’s that.

Wish other manufacturers would start following this trend of selling the pistol with three mags.  And great point about holsters.

Glock Austria did something very unusual/strange with this gun, seems they think Glock USA cant make this gun as should be, since all machinery for this gun was made in Austria and brought here and  the machinery is run by Austrian engineers and the machinery runs on European current and the barrel., slide and frame are made here and all other parts are made in Austria and any raw materials also are not imported but come from Austria!

 

This makes Glock USA look bad! But how often do we hear when this gun was made in Germany, Austria or Italy the guns were much better Quality!  I hear that all the time about mainly Walthers, Sigs and Berettas, seems Glock wants to avoid the Tn. probs with the M9A3 which even after bring engineers from Italy didn't help and thus they stated making it there!

 

In the vid i posted on previous page at 5:50 min. mark U can hear about what is said!

      Well, after building the 1892 Winchester in 357, I guess I got horned into 357 and just had to finally spring for a nice wheel gun. My taste is in S&W but I want a nice handling range gun and the K frame is just right as not being too heavy. Besides I carried a M10 S&W as a duty gun for 18 years and became fond of my qualifying scores with that action. Problem is, I think S&W has been giving the shooting public the screws on their K frame magnums for a very long time. Frame cutting, and burned throats aside, That I can understand but I draw the line at poor barrel shank design. Iv seen a few K's with bore bulges just forward the barrel shank threads inside the frame mouth. Its ugly and should not happen. Reason being, they stop the barrel treads into a "root diameter" opening cut of the shank rather than stopping the threads into thread OD. Taurus correctly decided long ago that they would correct this deficiency and that is one main reason why I bought a 669 rather than a 66 S&W aside from the $$$ difference. The barrel cylinder gap on the Taurus is perfect at .004. It needs a trigger job and a forcing cone hone that I figured would be needed but all in all, this particular Taurus 357 is going to be a very sweet shooter. Its a bit beefier in the frame than a S&W 66 and the finish is exceptional for the 5 bones even OTD on a GB purchase.

      Well, kind of a review, bearing in mind I've only owned the thing for (checks calendar...) 5hrs & 5 minutes.
      First impressions: It's a mini Vaquero! Fit & finish is far better than I expected actually. Joint to joint finish is very tight, although there are a few rounded corners, making it look more 'gappy' than it really is. The grips are perfect fit for the frame & are significantly nicer than those on the Blackhawk or vaquero. Yes, they're plastic, but the checkering is crisp & sharp. It feels very familiar to my hand. Like my 1860 Army. It points just as well too. The sights line up instinctively as soon as it's brought to bear. The MIM hammer has a little patch of very grippy checkering (Like the Blackhawk) making strong or support hand, thumb cocking a breeze. The trigger is rough. It has a pretty long, gritty take up & as it comes heavy break weight. I'd estimate pull weight at around 7-8lb. For a single action, that's just horrible. That said, there is a super simple mod that can be done with no permanent alterations to all Ruger single actions. Pop off a grip plate & drop one leg of the trigger spring of it's post. Instantly reduces weight by 50%. I worked the hammer & trigger a couple hundred times before shooting it & the grittiness went away, although the pre travel remains. It's 1000 times better than it was though & The break itself is very clean with minimal over travel. I also gave all the twiddly expensive bits a drop of oil & greased up the hammer strut. This reduces the cocking effort significantly. The hammer strut rides through a thin steel plate at the bottom of the grip & THAT'S the part that Ruger decided needed minimal tolerance. They bind on occasion. The best solution is to open up the hole a wee bit, but that's not really a fair thing to do before a test/review. Let's be honest, 99.9% of folks won't do it, so I slapped on some lithium grease instead.
      To the shooty bit.....
      Testing parameters:
      I'm working on the theory here that since this is a really cheap pistol, 99% of buyers are going to use it purely for plinking & occasional target use, but certainly not competition (CAS/SASS stuff aside) bullseye shooting. This being my train of thought, I didn't bother even trying any quality ammunition. No Eley, no Lapua. Only cheap, readily available bulk.....crap to be fair.
      I shot indoors, at Templar Shooting Sports range here in Tullahoma ($20+tax per lane) so wind & atmospheric variables could be avoided. Ruger state in their blurb that the sight is regulated at 15yds, so that's the distance I shot at. Shooting was done from a rested, seated position from a Caldwell sand bag. 2 full cylinders (12 shot groups) were fired at each target & the groups measured at the end of testing. The target wasn't moved during grouping.
       
      Ammunition tested:
      Aguila Super Extra 40gn solid
      Federal Target Grade 40gn solid
      Remington Golden bullet 38gn HP
      Federal Black Pack 36gn HP
      *Winchester Super X 37gn HP
       
      I had no ammunition failures, nothing shot or sounded 'weak' (common with bulk) or 'hot'. Not one single mechanical issue with the pistol at all in 125 rounds fired. I fired 3 full cylinders of blind-loaded mixed bag ammo to ensure hitting paper at 15yds & to ensure the cylinder & barrel were good & dirty before I began the accuracy portion. 
       
      The targets:
      Aguila 40gn....
