Default Custom Glock 19

Glock 19 9X19mm pistols are about the perfect size for carry while still holding 15 rounds of ammo in the magazine. One up the spout and a +2 follower adds a bit more firepower to your fingertips. I admit I am fond of these little ugly ducklings.

I never really intended to become a Glock collector but Lord knows somehow over the years I have accumulated quite a few of the various models. I can't say they are attractive or give great pride in ownership but you can pretty much always count on them when the chips are down. Yesterday a gun dealer I know had one heck of a deal and I could not resist. A Glock 19 that has been extensively customized by Bowie Tactical. He frankly is not into Glocks or any polymer framed gun and took it in on a trade but really beat on the guy in the trade. The previous owner was a newbie to guns who bought it and sent it away at the advice of friends and spent a fortunue. All I will say is it cost me less than what BTC charge for the work they do on a customer supplied gun. I know why the guy traded it in. At 15 yards it shoots high, about six inches high with the Wilson combat tritium sights that is on it. Windage is perfect, so you just modify your sight picture.. make an upside down less than perfect triangle of those dots... but as I mentioned before the previous owner was a newbie. So now he has a high end 1911... somehow I think I will keep my eyes open for that to get traded in too.

Features I have noted have been modified on my new pistol.

*Radius ejection port
*Slide and slide stop refinish in OD green, black or gray
*Wilson Combat tritium night sights
*Feed ramp and chamber polish
*Trigger job with connector
*Grip reduction with 360 stippling and slide plate stippled
*Remove finger grooves
*Magazine well cut outs and widened
* Magazine floor plates stippling
*Rounded trigger guard 3/4 stipple
* Forward slide serrations
*Magazine release checkered

This work from what I gather cost about $800 on a customer supplied gun. Cost with BTC supplied gun is about $1250.

2nd Gen, 3rd Gen and 4th Gen Glock 19 pistols. The custom gun at bottom.


Comparison between stock Glock 19 Gen 3 and Bowie customized model 19 Gen 3.

Like the grip on the custom G19! Bet it's "sticky" in the hand.

How do you suppose they "stipple" those grips like that? Some kind of machine, or by hand with some kind of fancy soldering iron?

The Gen 4 Glock 19 is my favorite handgun. I put TFX night sights and did a trigger job on the one I shoot in competition. I also converted the 4th gen recoil spring back to a 3rd gen configuration.
