Glock has introduced its first Crossover pistol, a gun that blends components that have, until now, been strictly divided along the Standard, Compact and Sub-Compact model lines. The new 9 mm Luger Glock 19X features the Compact slide assembly of the G19 paired with the Standard duty-size frame of the G17. It has the same features as the pistol submitted for the U.S. XM17 modular handgun trial including the bilateral slide stops and lanyard loop, but not the thumb safety.  Available with standard or night sight systems, the slide has been treated with an improved coyote tan PVD coating that matches the frame. The pistol ships with one 17-round magazine, two 19-round magazines, four interchangeable backstraps and a hard storage case. glock.us
