    I have an opportunity to buy one of the the two but not sure if the compensated Glock's are more desirable then regular ones. Let me know

    i think they are cool. though I would guess that with the ports on top using the sights could cause you to get flash blindness .

    Just not sure if I should wait to find something else or just go for it. I know how hard Glock 19's are to find

    I don't know anyone who likes the C Glocks. A comp in a USPSA open gun, sure. But in a G19? What's the point?

    I love glocks, carried a 19 for the last 7 years in Iraq as a private security contractor. easy to use, maintain and universal to just change a barrel out and have a 40, 45, 9mm, my fav throw away barrel is 357SIG I carried. So really you are buying 4 guns in one, can use same mags, just switch barrels, toss and go :winkkiss:

    I have owned a glock 19 before but I am just wondering about the C version.

    I had a xd-v10 (xd 40 comped). It was loud and cool. No night vision issues. If you have the money, buy both!

    I would buy a 23-C in a heart beat, I've shot comp'ed glocks in the dark with no problems.

    i believe changing a 40 s+w to a 9mm is no problem going from a 9mm to 40 impossible

    Ya. I am sure you can't take a 9mm and make it a .45 either...

    I am no expert but I doubt you would have any trouble selling if did not like. I would go with the 23C and have the ability to convert to .357 SIG, 9mm or .22 conversion slide. Like I said I am no expert and those are the only conversions I know of. Glock 19C can convert to .22 with a slide conversion.
    Good luck and stay safe,

    I am not sure that 19c would be of a lot of interest. The flash is a negative and for the world me i can not see any reason to have a compensated 9 in anything. Maybe I am in the minority but I would not want a compensated 9. I do love the g19 though, it is the gun that made glock famous. But then I wouldn't want a compensated .40 either.

    Just swap a barrel and have a 357 sig, 40 S&W or 45 on a G19 frame/slide? The needle on my BS meter just took a big swing.

    Oops, just saw this. My understanding is that with caliber swaps, you can only go down in size and never up. Glock says you can not swap a .357 sig, a .40 or a .45 barrel onto a g19 and I haven't seen it done. Not without changing the slide. Well, unless you don't really value your appendages of course. And a .45 barrel on a g19????????????? That would be fun to see................from a fairly long ways away.

    I got to the gun shop this afternoon ( well like an hour ago) and the 23C was gone. I took the 19C because I am sure that there is a market if I did not like it. I was looking for an STI 1911 in 45acp but the only I found was a compact spartan and I wanted the 5". I will hang on to the C for awhile (Maybe I have owned 5 G19 and sold everyone of them within a few months) and leave it at home for the wife and switch it for carry with my Xdm.

    I can tell you that they are louder than their non comp counterparts

    I understand that they will be louder but that is what hearing protection is for and if I am carrying it and need it the loudness is going to be the least of my worries

    No issues with the C models. I have a 21C and it's great. It might be blinding if fired at night, but I haven't tried it.

    Question?

    If I decided to get rid of the 19C but had a Lonewolf match grade barrel along with the ported barrel would that make it more sellable?
