Glock 19/19C

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Glocks feature an indentation along each side for the thumb, and finger grooves with molded-in checkering on the frontstrap. Checkering also adorns the rear of the grip. The full-length dust cover accept flashlights. However, the sides of the grips are still very slippery.
