Snow shoeing up in the mountains with @alaskamauve and with a #P&SSpecial / #fauxlandspecial Glock 19.
The Roland Special is very popular and is a very specific build… by a now retired Army commando “Roland”. ATEi offers complete builds for Roland builds, and lots of people have been making clones. The main things you want are.
1. Mounted RMR: You are freed from iron sights’ sight radius… accuracy unlocked. 2. Full size Weapon Mounted Light (X300 or TLR-1 preferred). Being able to see and ID things at night is smart. Helps control recoil thanks to weight. 3. Match grade threaded barrel and comp. Increased accuracy is nice, and the comp reduces recoil to make dot tracking easy. The comp’s side benefit is that it keeps carbon off of the weapon mount light’s aperture. 4. Conceal Carry Mag Well: Low profile mag wells work great to funnel fingers on the larger hands, and aid in grip/control is less than ideal situations, while speeding up reloads.
Picked up another G19 and i’ll keep it stock for a bit to have it act a foil to the tuned up ones I got!
