Hello everyone. Just signed up today and was reading this post. I have a G19 that I've owned for close to seven years now. In that time it has never needed a new part and has never jammed on me, not even once, even using my own reloads that I use in three-gun matches. I have been able to hold my own with this pistol amongst the users of mostly 1911 type pistols during competition. The fact that you have what would be considered a compact pistol that holds as many rounds as most full size 9mm handguns is still a great concept(even more with +2 mag floorplates). Although the Steyr is a good shooting pistol, my nod would go to the Glock for the reason that it has been around a long time, thus you can get a whole array of factory original parts and aftermarket items as well from quite a few different vendors if need be. Though I've owned several 9mm handguns in the past, I consider the Glock 19 to be the best utilitarian pistol in it's class.
