Haven't heard much from our gun smiths in quite a while. I was just wondering, in your opinion, what is the best 9MM made by Glock?

As a gunsmith and an AGI  certified Glock gunsmith, I don't like any of them.  I prefer Sig if I am in need of a striker gun,  But prefer the solid iron of a colt 1911.  I  am not a fan of plastic guns, but it seems to the wave of the present, so whatever floats your boat.  IMHO, light, high powered guns, are not fun to shoot, and I shoot to have fun.  My carry gun is  Smith airweight.  I barely know I even have it on.  It has knockdown power of a +P, but is not fun to shoot.

I was never impressed by 9mm Glocks until I bought my wife a Glock 19 Gen 5 for our 19th anniversary.

What a great pistol. It's so accurate, I find myself trying to get the front sight centered just right so it will hit exactly to point of aim.
And, of course, it runs like all the (mostly 10mm) Glocks I've ever owned: round after round, mag after mag, month after month, without a single malfunction.

I didn't say they were no good, I said I don't like them.  I like vanilla ice cream, others may prefer strawberry, but we both like ice cream.  I had a Romo in for repairs.  Cheap sat night special of way back days, but it goes bang, I like it.  I just would not buy one.
