    The slide is from a company called Zeffiri Precision and the barrel is a zev. The next time I’m getting is a slr rifelworks magwell.

    Just installed my new magwell from SLR Rifelworks. They have two models for the 45 Gen 5. One is with the pinky lip and one without. They both do not work with any back straps however I think that if you shave down the catch at the bottom on the back strap you can put it on and hold the bottom down with the screw. Done quote me until I decide to do it. I kept the Glock floor plates on my magazine as it sits perfectly with the magwell. They have custom floor plates at SLR as well. slrrifelworks.com. Here are a few photos.

    I think next I will be doing the laser stippling. I know a company here in lake worth that does spectacular work. My goal is not to customize it to what I want to keep. But to customize it so that if anyone looked at it at a pawn shop or a gun shop, they would say l have to have that! I don’t want to over do it with crazy colors or fancy muzzle breaks because I believe though Glocks are the Honda Civic of handguns, just because they build everything for it does not mean you should buy and put everything on it.

    Just received my Olight Vallkyre PL Pro. I actually got it for my AR that I’m saving up for but it looks so sexy on my 45. I may just buy another one.

    I decided to use the PL Pro Valkyrie on my soon to be getting AR. I got the Valkyrie Mini as it was on sale. It’s smaller which means it’s lighter. It’s also 600 lumens! It’s so bright! No options for strobe or lowering the lumens but it’s fine with me. Adjustable slide so you can move the light either forward or backwards. For EDC I think this will work out well. Next is the drop in trigger from Overwatch and custom stippling from Palm Beach Laser Engraving. Got to get a IWB holster as well at the next gun show. Can’t wait. Here are a few photos of the new light!

    Got the extended magazine release from Tyrant Designs and stainless steel extended slide lock with pins. Next is the matching extended slide release from Tyrant when it comes out later this month. I also found what laser stippling pattern I want to get as well.

    Didn’t realize they could use lasers to do stippling but it makes sense. Seems you could get a more consistent pattern that way. That pattern looks great.

    It looks nice but I guess I am old school and like mine original stock. May be wild and add a laser but not in a hurry.
