    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.
     
  2. $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!!!
     

  3. o-yeah... I also have a 15rd mag with a tactical flashlight mag plate and a Maglite XL50 installed that I love.

    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.
     
  9. 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.
     
  13. FYI... a clip attaches to rds... a mag holds your rds inside it.
     
  14. Best money I have spent on my glock is 11 mags and lots, an lots, an lots, of .45 acp ammo. ;)

    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.

    sorry I posted an error on my post, EXTENDED MAG RELEASE, not CLIP release, I have been corrected, I think people understand.
