Nor does that give some SHYSTER cause to sue you, because you opted for a part that works better than the original Stock Part.
Ford, GM, guide rods, shysters, and motor oil aside. I was trying to point out (to keep confusion and incorrect info at a minimum for someone reading this in the future) that:
An aftermarket part made by a different company that did not come with the firearm (or pickup truck I guess) is not a "stock" part.

I bought a Lightning Strike striker and safety plunger for my gaming gun. I couldn't feel any difference in the trigger pull from the titanium plunger so I put it back in the parts bin. If anything I thought the stock plunger felt better. The titanium striker FWIW has seen 16,000 rounds without issue.
After hearing about issues with the finish of the titanium plunger I kind of wish I had left it in there just to see if there was any wear after all the use.

New Sights, More Magazines, Ammo, Proper Personal Protection Instruction from a Known Instructor. I also did a under-cut on my trigger guard to give me a better grip on the gun and relief on my fingers from the jagged edges of said trigger guard. Oh, and I polished up the trigger bar and plunger to get rid of the gritty feeling.

Being left handed, and some of my friends who are left handed who have picked up my Model 17 Gen 4, all said that it feels better in their hand with the under-cut and the rounded over edges. You don't need to pay a lot of money for it either. Even if you don't want to do the undercut, at least round over the edges of the trigger guard, it makes a huge difference.

These are all things that you can do at home with a little bit time and short dollars.
Remember, it's your gun, if you plan on keeping it, you can do what you want to it.

Note: Try to find someone who has the work done and feel it in your hand before you do anything. It is well worth the aggravation.

God bless!

Oh, by the way, it will void your warranty if you modify the frame and some after market parts. Check with Glock and get a leeter stating such before you do these mods.

If you have a G17 GEN. 4 you do have to make sure to get a Gen. 4 compatible grip plug so you can use the backstraps with it. I have a G22 Gen 4 and got the Pearce brand. The Pearce part number is part # PG-G4MF if you go with that brand and it is the same one that fits the G22 gen 4. Costs $6.00 + shipping at www.pearcegrip.com. I like that brand because you don't have to use an allen screw with it. Just push it in and a "tab" locks it in place. It fits snug so you don't have to worry about it getting loose and falling out from the recoil.

It's not for ripping out mags, that is what the half moon cut on the front of the grip is for (on most Glocks, not all). The hole in the back is for a lanyard, most of the air cops use them. Don't want to drop your gun out of the airship at 2,000 feet.

Not all Glocks come with the front cut, like my G31s. So since I carry non drop free mags, I just got the dremel out and fixed it.
