Default Are glocks models no longer current or absolete?

I'm about to buy a glock 19 yesterday but my friend told me not to buy because glocks are fallen into disuse, outmoded type, old fashioned and it cracks so easily. Please advise! Thanks guys!

Glocks may no longer be state-of-the-art but that doesn't make them obsolete. They do have some problems but mostly in .40S&W and not in the 9mm. So if you want the Glock 19 go for it.

Please keep passing this information along.

I operate a shelter for unwanted Glocks, will provide nice, dry, secure storage for them. Let me if you need my shipping information.

Your friend is full of caca.

If you like the Glock, buy it. It's still the most popular of the polymer framed guns,
and if you have any thoughts of modifying it to your tastes, Glock has by far
the most extensive aftermarket parts availability.

Xd and M&P have taken a bit of Glocks market, both have their strong points
and are worth a look before you plunk down the cash.

Interesting. I have a police trade in model 17. It is second generation and it dates to the early 1990s. No cracks.

The local sheriffs office is using Glocks. The local police department is too.


While it is true that Glock hasn't made a ton of changes since the original i wouldn't call them obsolete. I'd ask for the source of his information.

Your friend is not only full of caca, he is an idiot. Glock is every bit the quality it was when first introduced (barring the alleged MIM striker and extractor issues).

They forced the rest of the players to step up their game and innovate. As a result there are numerous great guns that are competing directly with Glock's market share. S&W, FN, Beretta, Ruger and others are churning out high quality polymer based handguns. This does not even take into consideration the huge number of top of the line 1911 pistols available.

There are more than enough quality handguns to fill any need and budget.

My friend is an officer, I immediately back off when he commented negatives about glock. That is why I posted this topic to get more positive opinions. I myself really like glocks but if you are hearing negative it's hard to decide.

HK is awesome. I would look at a USP or USP tactical. Mine is .40. The USP is even older then Glock, but in my opinion, the best polymer gun on the market. HK also invented the polymer gun. You will pay more for better though. Oh, what else is older then Glock, the 1911 and the Sig P226 (my other gun). The best bolt action guns are Mauser actions, which have been around for a very long time. The whole absolete and not current then is a bunch of BS.
