We recommend checking out 80-lower.shop – Glock Compatible Parts for all these aftermarket parts.
Choosing the perfect Glock 19 upper
When building a perfect Glock 19 upper this includes barrel,slide and upper parts kit. Even though stock components work fine. There are many benefits to aftermarket upgrades. We recommend that you upgrade or choose your barrel out first. This is because it’s often overlooked but can be the most important part of your Glock 19. Glock factory barrel doesn’t recommend the use of lead bullets, this is because it builds up to unsafe levels in the rifling when shooting lead. Most aftermarket barrels allow lead bullets. Of course there are more benefits to upgrading your barrel than just this. Many aftermarket barrels are threaded, which means you can add attachments like suppressor, muzzle break etc. Also some barrels are spiral fluted, this allows for the barrel to stay cooler and keeps your Glock more accurate for longer periods of time.
Next up is an aftermarket slide, the easiest to switch out and the most cosmetically pleasing to add. When choosing your slide it’s really your preference but we recommend you keep these details in mind. The standard Glock slide is often plain and heavy. Our favorite slide is windowed and skeletonized for grip. Recommended checking out 80-lower.shop – Glock Compatible Parts for the exact slide I’m talking about. I like the Skeletonized slide Gen 3 for many reasons. The windowed feature is good for weight reduction and exposes the barrel. The last part to complete your perfect Glock 19 upper is choosing an upper parts kit. The standard Glock upper parts kit is reliable but often hard to get and over priced. We recommend an aftermarket Glock 19 upper parts kit on 80-lower.shop – Glock Compatible Parts.
Hope this helps and answers your question when building a perfect Glock 19 upper. When choosing standard Glock components or aftermarket we always recommend going aftermarket. The quality and reliability of the parts are on the same level. While giving you many more benefits than the standard parts. Also let’s be honest the Glock 19 is reliable and great for self defense but it could use some help in the looks department. That’s why building your own Glock with parts you want, allows for more customization and an all around better handgun.
