(ALSO FEATURING * COMPENSATED PISTOLS)
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:
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
