Not necessarily mag extenders, but fingertip extenders or maybe G17 mags with sleeves?
trade it for a 17?
I havent gotten either yet, but in my other thread eveyone told me to get the 19
Finger grips/angle/too short, or what?
Some of those can be fixed with a belt sander/dremel.
It's a little too short, my pinkie feels like its sliding off.
i have fat fingers
i cannot be the only person on this board that has a problem with this, i've seen some fat fucks on here
If the 17 fits your hand better, buy the 17.
This board sack rides the 19 way too hard.
You must wear a size 14 ring
Pearce extensions match the texture of the grip, I like them. Any extension that adds capacity, you need to function test to make sure you don't need a longer mag spring.
Yeah considering I dont even need to worry about concealing.
I dont like the idea of extenders, seem like they would make the mag more fragile.
I have 3 for each of my XD40SC 9rnd mags and have never had an issue.
I chose the 17 over the 19 for the longer barrel.
Junky ones maybe. Any of the OEM or name brand stuff is at least as durable as the mag itself.
The issues you face with using 17 mags on a regular basis in the 19 is damaging the mag catch or inducting malfunction due to overinsertion of the mag. A sleeve that fits against the grip can mitigate this but then you're talking about adjusting your grip to avoid pinching your hand if it really hangs off the grip that much.
If you're not CCing it, get the 17.
yeah i didnt think about that. it doesnt really "hang" off the grip, it just feels like its slipping though. looks like a grip extension is the way to go.
yeah, but i would like to have the option if CCL gets passed in WI. all the other hanguns i'm looking at in the future are fullsize, so havent something smaller would be nice.
i'm not buying until thursday so i have some time to think about it.
If it doesn't fit your hand get something else.
they prolly only recommended the 19 cause it can double as a carry gun but always go with what your more comfortable with, thats key
just get the G17
I am sure if you posted the same thread G17 or G19 with the information about the fitment, you will likely be told to get the G17.
oh, and you can cc a G17. I can cc my G17 with a 33rnd mag as long as I dont bend over.
yeah it did feel significantly better.
