The Glock 19X was formally revealed at the January 2018 SHOT Show. Glock’s first so-called “crossover” pistol, it was a full-size G17 frame with a G19 slide and the Glock Marksman Barrel (GMB). Based on Glock’s submission to the U.S. Army Modular Handgun System (MHS) trials, the G19X’s design seemed counter-intuitive for EDC or concealed carry purposes. Of course, that’s because it wasn’t specifically intended for concealed use, but not everyone seemed to grasp that. Discussion/debate/derision about the weapon began pretty much as soon as rumors of its pending release began hitting in late 2017. That continues to this day. Discussion, frequently heated, about the Glock 19X remains normal today.
This Glock 19X, however, is far from normal.
