So I bought a 19x, another one

It is a baseplate issue, nothing more. Swap the Gen 5 baseplate for a previous generation and it is no problem. Or you could just cut off the lip at the front of the grip and be able to use everything.

This is purely my opinion and worth nothing, but I think Glock shot themselves in the foot with the "Gen 5 Baseplate" since hitherto the mags from pretty much any Gen worked in any other Gen.  The slight exception being the ambidextrous mag release cutout in the mag between Gen 3 and Gen 4, but Gen 4 mags still work as long as you're a right-handed shooter and have the mag release configured as such.

These Gen 5 mags with the "lip" have fragmented their ecosystem somewhat, and Glock's claim to fame has been standardization.

I had convinced myself over the weekend that I’d buy a 19x to try it but then found out about the magazine issue that you speak of. Sorta destroyed all plans in that simple fact alone.

The 19x has a flat baseplate as far as I know. Not the cutout like the other Gen 5s.

No, it's just the 19x that's weird. Gen 5 mags work just fine in everything else.

You know, I had seen some pics of a Gen 5 mag base-plate that had a dingus on the front edge that filled in the notch on the frame.  For some reason I thought those were stock.  Turns out they aren't.

Took the Glock Armorer course a couple of weeks ago. Yes the Gen5 internals are different. The 19X internally is as Gen5 as any of the others... just went through the parts order form and almost all are the same for 17, 19 & 19X... a couple of differences between the 17 and 19s.

Our instructor said that because of the frame/slide matchup, there is less rise so it's easier to stay on target for the next shot. I have only handled one in the showroom.

Don't forget GSSF members get a discount coupon from Glock at each anniversary (buy 2+ years up front for a coupon now).

I carried this specific model on duty for 25 years. Sent this item to Smith Custom Shop in 1986 for action job and polishing of trigger. They test fired it, with six rounds, sent it back, and it has sat in gunsafe since. In blue box w all documents and cleaning kit. $700
      Its companion training revolver is also available - S&W 18-3 .22lr $600

      I'm starting a thread to chronicle my efforts to build a semi-custom M&P M2.0 Compact to rival the Glock 19 in my EDC suite.
      As Smith & Wesson are currently offering a $50 rebate on the M&P series of handguns, I purchased another 4-inch M2.0 Compact 9mm strictly for the purpose of sending its slide off to Primary Machine to be milled for a Trijicon RM07 red dot.  It should be delivered to them tomorrow (Friday, Aug 10) and will then be in their queue for the next 2-3 weeks.
      The configuration I have specified for it is as follows:
      Mill slide for RMR and for Glock rear sight dovetail behind the RMR. Install plain black suppressor-height sights.  Glock rear, M&P front.  Proper height for co-witness. Cerakote slide Graphite Black  
      This will be in addition to the other 4-inch M2.0 Compact 9mm that I have been carrying for several months now.  I'll leave it with iron-sights only.  This unit with the red dot sight will very likely become my new EDC.
      I will post updates here as I learn more about the ETA for its return to me.
       
      This photo is not mine but it is similar to what I have in the works.  Mine does not have the thumb safety and the front sight is different.

      The slide and RMR arrived safely at Primary Machine's location today and was signed for by their staff.  The 2-3 week [estimated] countdown begins!
       
       
      Friday 17-AUG-2018
      The slide was completed and shipped back out to me on Wednesday the 15th.  It is due to arrive today.  As soon as it does I will of course take photos and post them.  I should be able to get it to the range this weekend to dial it in and see how it runs.
