Since I entered the gun business in 2001, Glock 19’s have been the same price at the dealer level.  We have not seen one increase in 9 years.  Pretty impressive if you ask me.  I wish I could say the same for things like gasoline.  Unfortunately everything seems to go up even though the manufacturing processes are getting simpler.

Glock has just introduced their first price increase and I bet you didn’t even notice that it had happened.  The new Generation 4 Glock 19 is about $30 more than the standard Glock 19.  Not bad you say because it comes with so many cool features like that interchangeable backstrap.

When you will notice is when the Generation 3’s are fazed out.  It will be a while.  I think there are still only 4 models with the RTF.  But don’t worry, it’s coming.

Now I don’t have a problem with this.  I think they have added value that wasn’t there before so it makes sense.  If you are going to raise prices give me something.  They have with the Gen 4.  If they keep it at this price for another 9 years I won’t have one complaint.

By the way a Glock trigger job makes a great addition to that Generation 4!
