Glock G19 slides

The Glock 19 has been an extremely popular gun since hitting the market shortly after its G17 big brother crossed onto American shores in the 1980s. With only three major differences between the two -- shorter grip, shorter slide, and slightly smaller capacity (15 instead of 17) -- the Glock 19 is almost identical to the earlier model. “Almost” is the operative word. These small differences have vaulted the G19 into a concealed carry role the larger predecessor has a tough time playing. But the G19 is just as customizable as the G17. It’s a Glock thing.

So what are your options if you want to upgrade, for example, the slide? These five aftermarket options are engineered to enhance performance, durability, and customization possibilities for Glock owners. Each slide brings unique features and benefits, catering to a range of shooting preferences and styles.
