NRA Gun of the Week: Glock 19 Gen4 Pistol

posted on November 19, 2016

Making their debut at the 2010 SHOT Show, the fourth generation (Gen4) of Glock pistols incorporated many features that users had been asking for. From a design perspective, changes in ergonomics were the main focal point of this rendition. Additionally, a few subtle internal changes were made to Glock’s Safe Action Pistol. The Glock 19 Gen4, a 9 mm Luger compact-sized pistol features a rough-textured frame, interchangeable backstraps and enlarged magazine release. Internally, the guide rod assembly was changed to use dual-nested recoil springs.
