Glocks Aren't Perfect?

May 2, 2012
1. Many factory new defective magazines (rounds fall out, other rounds stuck inside) These are real Glock mags not Korean or other aftermarket mags.
2. New in box, trigger flops around, no spring or spring not connected.
3. Slide stop notch battered into nothingness in less than 3000 rounds.
4. Recoil spring guide breaks during installation.
5. Recoil spring guide breaks during firing.
Been shooting Glocks for years. That's just my own personal experience. You can find more.

Glock Internal Locking System (ILS) Safety Feature

August 3, 2011
Glock I owned a glock m23 cal 40. Its ILS fall off and lost it. Can it installed with a new one? where can i source it here in the Philippines?
Thank you much.
John


Response - John

I have never seen an ILS for a Glock and would have no idea where to find it in the Philippines.
Sorry.

Glock ILS Information
In 2003, Glock announced the Internal Locking System (ILS) safety feature. The ILS is a manually activated lock that is located in the back of the pistol's grip. It is cylindrical in design and, according to Glock, each key is unique. When activated, the lock causes a tab to protrude from the rear of the grip giving both a visual and tactile indication as to whether the lock is engaged or not. When activated, the ILS renders the Glock unfireable as well as making it impossible to disassemble. When disengaged, the ILS adds no further safety mechanisms to the Glock pistol. The ILS is available as an option on most Glock pistols. Glock pistols cannot be retrofitted to accommodate the ILS. The lock must be factory built in Austria and shipped as a special order.

Which Gun To Buy. Glock 19 or Glock 23?

July 25, 2011
I intend to buy my first handgun and i prefer glock. what should i get glock 19 or glock 23. i never fired a gun before.
Richard



Response - Richard,

Before you buy your gun I would suggest that you get proper instruction, go to the range and fire a few rounds off first. Try a variety of guns to see what is best for you. You might end up saving yourself a lot of money if you find you picked the wrong gun or can't handle the recoil.

When I took my first gun course, a women in the class bought a handgun and brought it with her to the class (for the shooting portion). When she shot the gun (for the first time) she didn’t like it at all (too much recoil). She left the class without finishing the course. The instructors offered her the use of a less powerful gun but she became too afraid of guns and walked away.

That being said, a Glock 19 and Glock 23 are great guns. I own a G19 and it is my favorite gun.

Last week I was at the range and had a chance to shoot a G23 (.40 S&W) and compare it with my G19 (9 mm Luger). I found out something interesting about both guns. See Glock 19/Glock 23 Warning.

The guns are basically identical except for the ammo that they shoot.

Here are some things to consider when you make your choice.

- The Glock 23 has slightly more “stopping power” (but I don’t know if that difference really matters).
- The Glock 23 has slightly more recoil ( I could barely notice the difference).
- The Glock 19 ammo (9 mm Luger) is cheaper and more plentiful.
- At the range I see a lot more people shooting 9 mm than .40 caliber.
- Availability of parts, mods, enhancements and accessories are probably about the same for both guns.

I would personally go with the Glock 19 but I am a little biased.

But, seriously, you need to get instruction and shoot them before you buy them.

Best regards,

Tanner

 

Follow-Up:

Tanner, Thank you very much for sharing me your knowledge about guns. I will take your advice and try to fire several pistols before finally deciding which to buy. Although most of my buddies owns and recommends your favorite glock19. Thanks again and happy weekend.
