Thanks! Compatibility with existing Glock G17 magazines is definitely a requirement since I want to be able to use the same mags in my Ruger PC Carbine.
You don't need the longer grip of the 19x to run G17 mags. The longer grip of the 19X makes concealing more difficult, IMO. YMMV.

I don’t have a Glock 19X, but I do have a Glock 45. I have zero problem concealing it, but I also have more real estate that most people to conceal a pistol . "rlol"

I have had many G19's and always go back to my Gen 2 every time don't think I can beat it. Daily carry is a 2nd Gen 32 so same size.

Right. Cause most self defense situations occur at 50 yards? Really? :roll:
