Glock 19c ports vs Magnaported Glock 43

Written by
I got a request for some comarison pics of my Magnaported Glock 43 with my Glock 19c. But first, just a few words about the 19c. Despite hearing many times that they are discontinued they are not. In fact, Glock just released a batch of them for this year's "Glock Summer Special"



A few words about my Glock 19c. It is a Gen4 and is made in the U.S.A. It is noteworthy that it is the only Glock that I have ever owned or shot (a lot) that I have ever had problems with. Now, I will caveat this with the fact that I was using very old factory target ammo that is not exactly known for being high powered (i.e. cheap). I am talking about a few failures in the first 100 rounds or so. I am pleased to say that after 300+ rounds, it runs like a champ. However, it is very out of the ordinary so noteworthy. I know that over the 19c's iterations that they now make a cut into the top of the hood  - we know there had to be a reason for it. But, it is only one example, so take it for what it is worth. 

And now the requested pics:


Notice how big the Glock slide ports are (right) compared to Magnaport's (left)

Comparison of the barrel ports vs slide ports (19c top, 43 bottom)


Notice the top of the barrel. The 19c (top) has a cut in the middle of the hood


Top 19c - the barrel port is so much smaller than the slide port
