  • USA 1SHOT: The NFA-compliant Glock stock that is not (a stock)

    In the past few years, gun makers (Sig anyone?) have been all aglow about making shooting braces that fit the rear of AR and AK pistols that don't need a tax stamp. Now it seems a maker has come up with a similar solution to help turn your average Glock into an NFA-compliant SBR that technically isn't an SBR. What these things are (a crash course) According to the National Firearms Act of 1934 (the NFA), arms that the government thought to be too dangerous for over the counter sales, such...
  • The Iron Glock Homebuild

    All Glock lovers have a thing for simplicity. One Glock lover appreciated the design so much that he built his own metal framed model. We give you, the Iron Glock. What the... Boris over at Northeastern Shooters has quietly pulled off something that is huge. He made his own Glock. This legally made homebuild is simple to make, inexpensive, and flexible enough to marry up with most full size Glock slides and magazines. Best yet, he did it in a way that is extensively explained with both text...
  • Glock Extended Mags

    One of the beautiful things about Glock's G-series handguns is that factory replacement magazines are both affordable and readily available. Standard-sized factory mags can be had for as low as $25. For those who like to play around with a larger capacity, there are always extended capacity mags. Why an extended capacity magazine Extended magazines, extra-large capacity box devices that protrude below the normal grip of the pistol, look funny but offer a boost of firepower at your...
  • Glock's and Disability!

    What would you do if you lost some mobility in your hands? This brief article is just one example of what I did to accommodate my disability to use my Glock. Everyone thinks arthritis is for the aged, I'm here to let you in on a secret that Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an Autoimmune disease that effects the joints in anyone at any age! I was diagnosed when I was 13 years old, I am now in my mid 50's. I was informed by my doctors I have already lost more than 50% of my hand strength. I have...
  • To Stipple or Not to Stipple That Glock?

    If you have a Glock, you know for a fact that you have one of the plainest gun grips in the world and there is not a lot you could do to change that with a set of aftermarket grips as on other pistols. One very common DIY trick for this is stippling. This act of burning holes in things that you love may (or may not) be the answer you are looking for. What is stippling? Basically put, this act of modification is accomplished by pushing something very hot and very hard (think steel) into your...
  1. Glock 19 Gen 3 Mods to solve BTF issue.

    Let me begin by explaining that my Glock 19 G3 is my second Glock 19 to eject brass in my face at 6:00. I had a G4 do the same and sold it after trying several recommended modifications. I've been told that my grip is not tight enough or all wrong but my other 10 semiautomatics (M&P's, Sigs, Walther, Rugers, Kimber...) all eject properly and the brass doesn't hit me.Not being one to give up easily on a gun with issues, I went all out on my G3 to solve the eject problem and now have an...

  4. Are new MOS models of Glock 9mms coming soon?

    It would appear that a few new offerings for Glock's MOS (Modular Optics System) for mounting reflex and red dot sights are in the pipeline, namely for the G17 and G19 models. The MOS system made its debut at SHOT Show 2015 exactly a year ago and provides factory-original optics ready handguns in a number of models. The MOS feature is currently available on four 4th Gen Glock models including the "Practical/Tactical" G34, G35, G41 and the new for 2015 10mm G40 long slide. The MOS allows a...
  5. AMG brings Lock, Stock and Barrel system for G17

    A new player in the Glock pistol-to-carbine conversion game, American Manufacturing Group, has a system for the 4 Gen Glock 17 that swaps out the barrel of the handgun with a rifle-length drop in and adds a M4 style stock-- while remaining ATF compliant. Why a carbine kit? Pistol caliber carbines date back to the 1850s and the concept in and among themselves are not new. Taking a standard handgun action and adding a short, rifle length (16-20 inch) barrel and a buttstock, you now have a...
  6. Clearing the woods of steel hogs with the a Glock 40 10mm

    Tennessee-based firearms reviewer and outdoorsman Hickok45 got his hands on one of the model G40s in 10mm and went to points unknown to partake in a rather clean and well-run hog hunt. The long-slide G40 Gen 4 MOS pistol from Glock, debuted back in January at this year's SHOT Show, is chambered in 10mm, making it a beefier version of the G20 (which is puny already, right?) with a target-length barrel. Ready to accept red dot sight systems like the Trijicon RMR, the 9.49-inch overall (due to...
  7. SilencerCo intros threaded barrels for G26 baby Glock

    One of the biggest players in the suppressor game is moving into marketing threaded aftermarket barrels for Glock's subcompact line, starting with the 9mm G26. The Utah-based company, who has been setting the suppressor world abuzz with their Salvo and Osprey lines (and new Maxim integral suppressors), has long-marketed a series of drop-in threaded barrels. After all, what good is a sweet screw-on can if your barrel ends at the frame, right? "The only thing better than a normal pistol...
  8. LaserLyte comes out with a training barrel for G19/23

    LaserLyte has gone one better on their Trigger Tyme laser trainer pistol gun tech and debuted a barrel that turns your own Glock 19 or 23 into a training device with its own on-board laser impulse generator that is impossible to use with live ammo. When practicing movement drills, weapon presentation, holstering, close combat, and other evolutions that do not require a loaded firearm, there is no substitute for safety. Much of your training regimen for the use of your handgun does not...
  9. Court-proofing your firearm

    This article will aggravate some who have spent a lot of money accessorizing their Glocks. Such is not my intent. What I do intend is, to help our forum members understand a small part of the legal process, and how the choices of accessories that are made will play out in a court of law. Let me explain what I mean by accessorizing. I'm not referring to mechanical changes to the weapon, such as replacing stock sights with night sights, trigger jobs, or similar alterations (just make sure the...
  10. 4 New Glock Aftermarket Items

  12. Upping your Glock 19 game to .960 Rowland

    One of the most popular caliber swaps for large frame pistols is the relatively new .960 Rowland caliber. It offers a bit more bang for the buck but has some things to keep in mind. We look at this innovative aftermarket conversion for the Glock. .460's younger brother If you took a .45ACP sized round, and made it deliver performance around that of a .44 Magnum, then you have something on the order of the .460 Rowland. This round, the brainchild of "Shooting Show" host Johnny Ray Rowland...
  13. Are you on board with a Glock magazine rifle or carbine?

    Sure, we all love our Glock handguns, and there are always the extended barrel kits to turn them into a carbine, but somewhere in that murky middle ground between your trusted handgun, and your favorite rifle is the pistol-caliber carbine-- and wouldn't it be great if they offered them in the same magazine options as your Glock. Well about that. Why would you want one? The short length and of the carbine when compared to a full sized rifle or home defense shotgun makes it more...
  14. The 1926 Glock: Two great tastes that tastes horrible together

    MattV2099, perhaps best known for his Glocks and food torture tests, experimented with what would happen if you swap the slides on a Glock 19 and 26-- so you don't have to-- all in the name of science. But before we roll that beautiful bean footage, let's take a look at the guns for those who may not already be aware. Backgrounder, G19 Just a tad bit smaller than its G17 big brother, the Glock 19 is a more compact design. Shaving off about a half inch and a few ounces, the gun is overall...
  15. Streamlight debuts TLR-6 combo light for Glock 42 and 43 platforms

    If you waited all this time for one of the slim line Glock .380 and 9mm single-stacks to hit the market, but miss the tactical weapons light you had on your other platforms, Pennsylvania-based Streamlight has you covered. Introduced this week is the TLR-6, what the company is calling an "ultra-compact" lightweight combination illuminator light and red aiming laser-- the first of its kind meant for a sub-compact pistol as thin as the Glock 42/43. "The TLR-6 is a real game changer, the first...
