IMHO the trigger is good for a carry gun, I wouldn't say horrible by any stretch. I understand some don't care for the stock trigger and can't shoot them very well as stock. (I'm not in that group) Mine has trijicon NS but it didn't need them. I've always been good with Glock factory sights. Just my opinion after all this is a gun a vs gun b thread. I don't think anyone can argue with the reliability of a Glock under all conditions and that's number one on the list for me in a EDC.

I agree. I find the trigger on my Glock and other Glocks I have tried to be pretty decent. It has some initial take up, unlike the P320, that I expect and prefer for a combat style carry handgun. The trigger break is pretty good as is the reset.

My Gen2 Glock is as it left the factory with the exception of a $20 Grip Force adapter I installed to make it fit my large hands a bit better but even that is not a necessity.

The one glock I bought had to go back to Georgia twice before it was reliable. The first trip back none of the parts related to the problem (failure to exrract) were replaced and of course the problem was not corrected. The second trip back with explicit instructions on exactly what parts were at fault and needed to be replaced resulted in the problem being corrected.


My p320 only had to go back to Sig once for the failure to reset issue. It came back with the problem corrected.

My conclusion is any brand can have problems in individual pistols. Reliability can only be considered a sure thing after putting the pistol thru it's paces.

As to glock triggers, on the advice of a long time glock shooter, I put a Ghost 4.5# connector in the pistol. The stock connector went back in after about 100 rnds. The design of the glock trigger requires a certain weight of pull times a certain distance. Lower the weight of pull and it lengthens the pull distance of the trigger. For me, the stock heavier pull was preferred over a lighter creep type pull. I understand that aftermarket springs can be installed that lighten the pull weight, but going that route could result in problems in a post self defense shooting.

The stock 320 trigger was better for me than either of the glock setups tried.

Talon Grips/Grip Stipple
Replaced Trigger Connector
Trigger Guard undercut
Wilson Combat Barrel

P320C
Holster


That about sums it up to me. I have both and I really like both (just bought a P320C in 45 today as well) but the Glock 19 seems more like a Honda that needs to be souped up to compete with a stock P320 with factory night sights
The Sig P320 does everything better than a Glock 19 in terms of comfort, ergonomics, softer recoil, but the reason I would still go with a Glock is because the magazines are cheaper, more accessories, and reliability. I have a P320 but do not trust it for a carry gun. Mine has had no problems but have read many who had failure to extract issues.

MR...I question again why you post this type of second hand information. You have had no issues, but continue to question the 320's reliability.

There is just as much anecdotal info regarding Glock reliability (including the wholesale recall of the new G19 M as issued to the Indianapolis PD), but you'll trust your life to it.

Why don't you go to the glock forums to bash the 320's as opposed to looking for attention here. You're not posting any relevant information for people that are looking for 'firsthand' info.

Goodbye please.

He said he has had no problems with his 320. That is first hand isn't it? Many people feel like not trusting the 320 because of the many issues that have been reported in a weapon that is a relatively new design. Sure every firearm manufacturer has some problems to deal with. Glock has had problems but in relation to the track record, number of guns being used and the length of real world service, the problems really have been very very few. I don't think he was bashing anything, just giving his honest opinion. The 320 is a very ergonomic and well thought out design, no doubt but it hasn't earned the reputation of a P229 or G19 yet. We all love our Sigs! Most here are not gonna give Sig a pass on anything that isn't first rate. We demand excellence.

I've had zero issues with reliability on either the Glock 19 nor the P320. I found that with the Glock I was able to appendix carry it alot easier so thats my EDC gun.

I picked up a P320 40 because I still wanted a P320 and then last month got a steal on a P320 9mm Full size exchange kit ($180 shipped) so I'm going to try that out for my IDPA gun.

The only real upgrade the G19 needs is night sights. After that, it all goes down to preferences. Because of what I do in the shooting industry, I have a lot of about every handgun. You can't go wrong with either. The P320 has a better trigger out of the box but the Glock is used and accepted as the standard of duty weapons around the world. The reality is the Glock is the modern day equivalent of the 1911 because of the accessories and aftermarket support across the board. I am a huge Sig fan but I carry a G32 (gen 3) a lot because of its weight and firepower (14+1 of 357 Sig). I don't care if I beat up my Glocks, it's a tool without emotional attachment. The Sigs "feel" more special and the Glocks are more generic because of how comon they are used by everyone. Competition brings out the best in a firearm so there is a place in the world for all of them.

I have both G-19 and P320C and I carry both. Very little difference in feel when carrying. I changed out the trigger on the G-19 to the smooth one from the G-17 and the sights. I also changed out the sights on the 320C, both were bought without night sights. Both guns are reliable and I trust both or I would not carry them. Both are good guns and have their own pros and cons. Glock has a much better selection and availability of oem and aftermarket accessories.

Having said this my preferred carry is the P320SC and I carry it most of the time.

I rented the G19 yesterday on a whim....I just wanted to shoot it. Previously, I had never "got along well" with any Glock. They were just never comfortable to me.

I put 50 rounds through that 19 and enjoyed it. The trigger was decent...far better than most, but short of some others including my P320c. It was accurate and never failed had a hiccup. Overall I liked it except for the sights.

I have the factory night sights on my P320c so I think there is a spoiled factor there.

To me, aftermarket sites puts the G19 awful close to the P320c. I'd own one....hell I still might some day. At the end of the day I shot the Sig better, it feels better in my hand, and I'm getting more and more comfortable with it every time I shoot it.

Ohhh yeah....I very much don't like the finger molds in the Glock grip!!!

I'm not saying that G19s aren't solid pistols and if you like them in their stock condition, then even better. I've owned Glocks since the late 80s and still own 3 of them right now.

But, having just purchased a P320 Compact, "I" simply think it's a better pistol for the money.
