Is the compensated version of the G19 that much different than the non-compensated version?

Besides the cuts in the barrel and slide, no. They are a heck of a lot louder the trade off being quicker follow up shot. Personally I would go the plain Jane route every inch of barrel = more FPS on the bullet.

9 millie being a heavy recoiling round, I'd consider the "C" model!

I've had both before. I really preferred the C model.

It always shot flawlessly for me - follow up was very fast. I never did night shooting with it, but I could see where it could be slightly more difficult. But for me, the trade-off is worth it.

My thoughts exactly.

I have a 19, and it doesn't kick at all.

These are the "clown" responses the forum could do without. Why dont you just share with us your personal experience with both the 19 and 19C?, that may be more helpful in answering the original posters question.

I have shot most all of the "C" models. While it certainly does make a difference in the 9mm, the greater benefit of the "C" models is in the .40 and .357 sig. So, to answer the question, in my opinion, a slight diffrence in the 9mm.

If you ever want to shoot IDPA with the gun the "C" models aren't allowed.

I also agree with alot of the other posters, if you need "taming" of 9mm recoil you might want to consider another hobby.

Yep, sounds like utter bullshit to me, Aim4MyHead. No personal experience whatsoever, and totally disrespectful.

I am not convinced that the compensator cuts will have a significant negative effect on velocity. I have seen some chronograph results that show an increase in certain pistols! That said, I wouldn't bother with the C version of the G19 unless you have one offered to you at a smoking good deal. If that is the case then go for it. The G19 is a great 9mm, comped or not. I have a "regular" version that I frequently carry and I think the G19 and the G20 are Glock's best products.

With the "C" models you can easily swap to a stock barrel for competitions or carry if you need/want to, but you can’t swap the other way. Bullet weight is one of the biggest influences with the “C” barrels. With lighter bullets generally the comp works better because they are loaded with faster powders. You loose about 50' per inch in velocity of barrel length so with the "C" it would be about 60’-70’ per sec loss. The "C" models do nothing for recoil, when you pull the trigger the recoil is still there. What you do loose is muzzle rise thus recovery is faster for follow up shots. I have several "C" models and even though they are louder they are still fun to shoot. I have shot in complete darkness and muzzle "flash" is a non issue until about the 6-7th rd and at that point I did see spots but could still find my night sights. If you ever get a chance to shoot a G18 verses a G18C you will really notice the difference.

Go with the NON-compensated pistol if you intend to use it for personal defense...the ported pistol, when used for defense, has way too many drawbacks which really can't be reasoned away.

For gaming and general goofing-off go ported...pistols for serious use should have only ONE hole at the end of the barrel...

I personally dont care for the "C" models, IMO. -Justin

I HAVE a Glock 19C and shoot it a lot. It shoots great and I always use earplugs anyways so noise isn't much of a big deal to me.

However, I have tried some "point" style shooting where the gun was slightly lower that my line of sight, and the blast was VERY noticable! It hits you in the face and without eye protection it would seem kinda hazardous. I would not consider the 19C to be a good gun for carry/home defense, so I am currently looking for a regular (maybe even a slightly used) G19 barrel to "drop in" as a replacement for that reason.

Just my $0.02

You could always get the C model and an extra barrel. Have two guns in one.

I have a 19. Recoil is very mild so I never even considered getting the C model. With a compact .40 maybe. Or a 10mm. But for a 9mm I'd say stay standard.

Or, you could get a 19, and an extended and ported barrel. Just another idea thrown in...

If it's a competition gun, you can go compensated, if it's a gun intended to be used in a personal protection role, do not go compensated. Reasons why have been posted numerous times in other threads.
