I have difficulty firing the short-barreled 19 quickly; my wrists aren't strong enough to control the flip well. Other than working out, which is difficult at my age, I am considering some form of muzzle brake. Does anyone have an opinion (I'm sure you do) about whether it would be practical to buy a G17 barrel (1/2" longer), and have it MagnaPorted. I'm sure if I asked Glock they'd tell me that "any modification would void the warranty", but the question is, would it work?

it might be better to go to a 19c or a 17c with the compensator already built in. the g17 has a little more barrel and will aid in keeping the muzzle down.

You can get a ported barrel for your G19. Lone Wolf barrels are pretty affordable. Also try different bullet weights you might notice a difference in recoil/muzzle flip.

Welcome! And I also have to agree with barstoolguru said. Don't even think about a .40! You will see muzzle flip like you never imagined! :)

Wouldn't the ported G19 bbl require modification to the slide? I would prefer not to do that. That's why I was hoping that the slightly longer G17 bbl, since it would extend in front of the slide by a half inch, could work ported. Maybe I should just live with it, or buy a G34. I've fired one of those and have no difficulty controlling the muzzle flip.

The first time my wife fired my G23 she almost threw it back over her head.
JackRussell, that is funny! I mean after knowing nobody got hurt, the way you worded that is hilarious!!
