19X is this a sales gimmick ?

I got to looking at the Glock 19X . To me it seems like a sales gimmick. If you take a 19 and insert a 17 magazine then there ya go . Or to make it more "better looking" just add an X-Grip to smooth the gap.  I just don't get paying the extra money for it . Any thoughts ?

Everyone that I know who owns one of them says the improvements aren't just in the grip length.  They say the trigger is better than any other Glock due to changes in the trigger system and/or sear.  Also, the explanation I've heard several times now for why the grip length and slide length work so well for certain applications has to do with who the pistol was originally designed for.

Keep in mind it was designed as a contender for the joint service pistol.  Anyone wearing body armor with side panels needed a shorter slide so that they weren't drawing "all of that gun" out of a holster and trying to clear it past their armor.

I have a gen 5 17 for my duty pistol and for me the trigger pull is about the same and so is the groupings . I have a personal g26 gen 5 just cause I was curious. I still don't see that big a difference from it and the Gen 3's or 4's.

I like the fact that it comes with night sights, a flush 17 rounder and 2 extra 19 round clips for around the same price as other standard glocks. I also like the desert coloration even though I know a lot of people don’t.

Are those trigger improvements to the 19x specifically or all Gen 5 pistols?

A friend of mine, Mike Sisino, says that it feels different and more improved to him than the Gen 5 trigger.

I like Dolo's moniker of Glock Commander. 

The concept makes sense, I have a 19 cut to a 26, does that make it an Officer?

I'd like a little more info from users on trigger comparison.

Picked up one today. Went to the range and ran about 200 flawless rounds through it. Shot it side my side with my vp9 and vp9sk. Trigger was great and gun shot really smooth. Minimal felt recoil and more accurate than I.

Hey here's my Glock 26X LOL , just messing around but it does fit my hand better than the Glock 19 . For some reason the 19 doesn't fit me . The G17 and 26 fit me better.

      Taurus PT111 Millennium G2 For sale. Like New Condition with box and manual. Purchased in Feb 2017. Taken to the range once, fired about 225 rounds of various FMJ and JHP ammo. All ammo ran flawlessly. The gun was surprisingly accurate but the trigger bit my finger more than I was comfortable with. None of the You Tube reviews mentioned anything about this so I guess I was the odd man out on this. Anyway, I'd rather sell it and get something that doesn't pinch my trigger finger.
      $180 + bill of sale to TN resident and DL or Carry permit.

      I might have made a huge mistake, boys. Could lead to a divorce. I stopped in my LGS (Crossroads Guns, in Fountain City), for some HV .22LR for my Stoeger Luger. I walked out with the .22 rounds and after putting a Walther PPK/s in lay-a-way.  It’s a beaut, a Interarms Stainless steel pistol,  with both mags, box, manuals cleaning rod... all for 5 bills plus tax and BCG. Lay-a-way for 12 months!
      Oh Lord, what have I done???  😆😆😆
      Looks like this!

      Anybody ever try and run 7mm subsonic? Was thinking about a 300 Blackout but I'm not stocked on any ammo or components and after seeing 20 rnds for $30 at the LGS I think that boat has sailed for now.
      I've got an old Contender in 7mm TCU that I haven't shot in eons. Wondered if anyone had tried running something like that suppressed? I do have some makins' to get that going.

      Went to an estate sale yesterday and picked up this Stoeger Luger .22, with an aluminum frame. I think it’s one of the best examples of one that I’ve seen.  Really a bit surprised by the size and heft. It’s very close to the only Luger P08 that I’ve ever fired! Hopefully I’ll get to shot it tomorrow.
