Rampart Range Day 18 – Glock 19X

Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

Developed for the US Army’s Modular Handgun System solicitation, the GLOCK 19X is still relatively new in Canada.

It combines full-size GLOCK 17 frame and the compact GLOCK 19 slide. Additionally, it features the GLOCK Marksman Barrel with polygonal rifling and an improved barrel crown, no finger grooves, ambidextrous slide stop levers for better versatility, and a lanyard loop.

Finally, it’s their first factory colored slide. The improved nPVD slide coating prevents corrosion, resists chemicals, and stands up against the elements. The pistol comes in coyote color and includes a standard 17-round magazine and two 17+2-round magazines along with a coyote-colored pistol case.

GLOCK pistols are available for unit and agency orders in Canada from Rampart Corp.

SHOT Show Industry Day At The Range – Glock

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

Glock had their new range of Gen 5 pistols out at range day, including the G19X, which is based on Glock’s entry for the US Army’s Modular Handgun System solicitation.

IMG_0130

Right off the bat, it’s fair to say that the G19X isn’t a true Gen 5 pistol. While it incorporates some of the Gen 5 changes, such as a dual finish slide, ambidextrous safety, and lack of finger grooves, in was developed specifically for the US Army’s solicitation. What this translates to, feature-wise, is:

A compact-size slide on a full-size frame
A removable lanyard loop
Tan-colored magazines
No front grip cutout

This lack of a cutout also means the new Gen 5 magazines are incompatible with the G19X, due to their larger floor plates, but older Gen magazines are good-to-go. Factory +2 floor plates also up the capacity to 19+1.

Elaborating on the aforementioned “dual finish slide”, much like the Gen 5 guns feature an nDLC finish, the G19X features an nPVD finish, with a color the rep was adamant should be referred to as ‘Coyote’; officially, it’s not Flat Dark Earth, Desert Tan, or any such variation, folks.

The trigger, noted in literature as featuring a smoother pull with a weight of 5.8 lbs., felt pretty similar to a standard Glock factory trigger, if a bit nicer. The factory night sights were clear and functional, and easy to point at the target. The full-size grip, derisive as it’s seen by some, felt good in the hand, with the lack of finger grooves contributing to the comfort.

GLOCK Unveils Countdown Clock For G19X Launch

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

There have been rumors for months that GLOCK planned to release their Modular Handgun Submission to the public. The marketing plans behind unveiling a new product can rival that of a full scale military invasion, but rarely do they survive contact with the fan base. This is what happened to GLOCK late last week, when a development page for what has been dubbed the G19X, was found on their website. Very quickly, several firearm websites posted what information they knew. Understandably, GLOCK took down the page and hid the video.

But, GLOCK did a great job of pivoting. They revamped the site and added a countdown clock to the pistol’s official launch at SHOT Show. They also sent out this press release earlier this morning.

SMYRNA, GA. – Jan 2, 2018 GLOCK, Inc., today introduces their first ever “Crossover” pistol, the GLOCK 19X, which combines the best features of two of its most popular and most trusted field-tested platforms. The full-size GLOCK 17 frame and the compact GLOCK 19 slide have joined forces for the ideal pistol for all conditions and all situations.

“The G19X was developed for the military and is a practical everyday pistol that will do what you need it to do, when you need it to; every time, in every condition,” said GLOCK VP Josh Dorsey. “Using GLOCKs combat proven experience with consideration to efficiency, dependability and durability, and through rigorous testing, the G19X stands out above the competition and has the ability to function in harsh climates and all conditions with increased accuracy and ultimate reliability. Our goal was to meet the demanding needs of the military while maintaining our standard of perfection,” said Dorsey. “With proven testing results and fewer parts than our competitors’ pistols, the G19X has maximum efficiency, reliability and is easy to maintain.”

Confidence now comes in a different color with the first-ever factory colored slide. The GLOCK 19X’s improved nPVD slide coating prevents corrosion, resists chemicals, and stands up against the elements. The pistol comes in coyote color and includes a standard 17-round magazine and two 17+2-round magazines along with a coyote-colored pistol case.

Among the additional design features of the G19X are the GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) which delivers increased accuracy with enhanced polygonal rifling and an improved barrel crown, no finger grooves, ambidextrous slide stop levers for better versatility, and a lanyard loop.

The aggregate effect of all the G19X design enhancements gives any user the confidence to succeed and survive in all situations. A perfect “Crossover to Confidence”.

The G19X will be available on dealer shelves beginning January, 22nd, 2018 at select dealers.
