I walked in to a pawn shop this afternoon and a 19M just jumped in to my arms–I couldn’t do anything about it. Normally, I’m only drawn to the early guns–as the models get newer and newer a company tends to get more and more “gimmicky” trying to boost sales. Like, really, how many Glock 19s does one man need? (The answer, btw, is all of them)
This particular 19 just couldn’t be helped though. I couldn’t tell you the real difference between a Gen 5 and the “M” model (other than the letter and the price tag) but something about the FBI picking this version, and the rarity, and just the looks of it made it irresistible. And now I feel like a true fan boy.
To be fair, most of my Glocks are investor grade rare models and this one is no exception. It’s new in the box, unfired, and has been selling online for significantly more than what I paid. At least, this is what I’m going to keep telling myself 😉
If you get a chance to handle one, I encourage it: this might could be true “Glock Perfection.”
