Glock 19 Gen 3 The Gen 3 was and is characterized by a specialized grip area with finger grooves that make the weapon easier to hold, even if you suffer from “constant sweaty hand syndrome”.
As an added bonus, the G3 has a thumb rest on either side of the pistol, allowing you to comfortably rest your hand all the way around the weapon, even over long hours (a favorite characteristic for police officers). Furthermore, the Gen 3 typically includes a universal accessory rail.
This allows Glock owners to add flashlights, lasers, and other optical accessories. Not only is this great for duty carry purposes, but it solidified the Gen 3 as a favorite pistol for gun hobbyists. One last advantage is that the Gen 3 has an extended extractor, which easily indicates whether the chamber is loaded.
