I am impressed at all the aftermarket goodies for the Glock, and just kinda lookin to upgrade my G23, and wanted your guys opinions on the best upgrade you have made on your glock's.

$22 w/ free shipping... botachtactical.com

Extra mags.

I also like my...
titanium pins
Extended mag release
extended slide release
extended slide stop
Competition trigger job (2.5-3lbs pull)
Grips (both rubber and grip tape)
Mandalorian Bantha skull slide plate
+2 and +5 mag extensions
Truglo TFO sights
Painted letters on the slide and mags

That about does it for me.

ps... Holsters!!!

I think the best "bang for the buck" was the trigger . I can deal with the slide release , mag release and standard sights ( don't get me wrong I upgraded all that too) but the most noticeable performance modification was the trigger . Make it a much better Shooter IMO and its like $25

I have 6 mags, and the usual dress up parts, but was thinkin trigger job, and a tungsten guide rod? But seems I've read on here alot of you guys don't see any difference with the stainless or tungsten guide rods.

Some people hate Glocks too... make your own judgement.

I can't speak to the tungsten rod yet . I have a G22 with that installed and the factory rod and I am going to do a comparison of the 2 . If you had a G22 I'd send you mine to try out .

As for the trigger my accuracy has improved greatly . It has also made my wife much less apprehensive to shoot it .

Upgrades

By far the best upgrade I have done so far is the tungsten rod and spring, adds weight to the front, i have a glock 21 and it helped alot, also installed chrome extended slide lock, extended clip release, firefield tac light. The glocks are so ease to work on and to upgrade.

FYI... a clip attaches to rds... a mag holds your rds inside it.

That's good to hear, I never realy liked the trigger on my 23, not smooth at all, but my biggest problem right now is the trigger, I catch myself antisapating the shot quite often, but I think a trigger job will be my first mod, any suggestions on triggers?

The most significant upgrade was a set of TruGlo Tritium green sights. It's a personal thing, I just pick them up faster, day or night, than the factory sights. And since I come from a lifetime of 1911 schooling, the extended slide release makes it a easy pistol to use with one hand. The trigger is a bit stiff but still acceptable. Perhaps later for that.
