My New Gen 5 Glock 19

Picked up my Gen 5 Glock 19 today. No frame customization done yet (tomorrow), but I note that the inner workings are quite different from the Gen 4 pistols. The trigger assembly is similar to the G43, in that an L-shaped bar hooks onto the cruciform. Also, instead of a trigger spring that is stretched, the Gen 5 trigger spring is compressed. Hrm…

Much study ensues.

Update: After contouring and stippling

This month I’ve been shooting the Canik TP9 SA pistol at Eagle Gun Range for an upcoming review. This is a lot of gun for very little cost. Stay tuned for my shooting review in a few days.

My Gun Collection Records

by Andy Rutledge 4 Comments

I keep meticulous records on my firearms, especially with regard to rounds fired and parts replaced. I have never been a fan of any of the commercial apps for keeping track of these things and have always used my own solutions. This week I built a new system for keeping my collection and shooting info online. Not beautiful, but it’s quite serviceable and very handy. I highly recommend that you keep good records for shooting and maintenance for your guns.

Here’s the main tab for my original Glock 19:

And here’s the second tab, for component replacement info for frame and slide components.

There’s more to it than this, of course, but this gives you the basic idea. Whether it’s paper, an app, or something you build, you should keep accurate records for your gun or gun collection.
