    Yup.

    I'd knock that little lip off the grip. Don't know what purpose it serves as the heel of your hand/glove is what gets caught on a reload.

    Can I get a 19x slide on a 45 frame?

    That way I have to deal with neither the stupidass lip nor the stupidass front cocking serrations.

    From my perspective, which is entirely focused on performance, the 19X magwell sucks for reloading quickly and reliably. If you want a short slide/long grip, the 45 is a much better gun. If I was going to deal with a long grip for concealment though, or was just buying a full size gun to shoot at the range or compete with, I would definitely go 17 or 34 for the increased sight radius. Despite what the internet says, sight radius matters unless you put an optic on the gun.

    ^ And a fullsize is softer shooting.

    Yup. Two G19Xs that I love, and shoot well despite the stupid sights. Knocked the lip off both with zero regrets.

    I replaced 4 G19X pistols with 4 of the more improved G45 pistols.

    This oft-discussed breechface machining is not anywhere near as significant as the internet makes it out to be.
    I disagree. Having owned 4 G19X and now 4 G45 I see a great deal of difference in the way the cases are ejected.

    Rented out a G45 today..color me impressed. I have a gen4 g17 MOS I bought a couple of weeks ago and the g45 is a better pistol in every respect. Shot about 4mags of my loads through the g45, every single case ejected to the right on a high arc, I got hit with brass, not from the pistol throwing them at me, but rather the cases bouncing off the wall of the stall I was shooting in.. The trigger was better, ejection of emptyís was very vigorous, looks like Glock may have finally solved the BTF problem. I believe the breechface cut really works..Tomorrow Iím going back and ordering a G45 MOS, Iíll be putting my G17 MOS up for sale, along with another pistol in about a week or so..

    Once I get the G45 Iím going to put my Trijicon RMR on it...

    I like the lip, as my little finger will sometimes get caught in a reload pinch on other guns, such as the Beretta 92 series. Never has happened with the 19x.
