    Just got my 1st Glock the 22 Gen 4 and I am already in love with this gun. I was looking for info on some nice upgrades to enhance the gun but change is to much of its original feel.

    Gratz and welcome. I would suggest dropping in an extended slide release and a 3.5lbs trigger connector.

    Some like the gen 4 extended mag release, but I don't find it that good of an upgrade as it is barely larger then the stock one. Not like the old extended mag releases that are a lot larger.

    Thanks for the info
     
  4. I have the gen3 and I love it!Mine is the compensated 22. I orderd a gen4 compensated but it has not been produced yet. Maybe next year.Any way I changed my connecter. I'm thinking about extended slide release.The compensated barrel stays on target!I love shooting it!I also have a g34 which is very accurate!

    How about some night sights !?

    They say most SD shootings happen in low light situations.

    Trijicon, Meprolight, and TruGlo come to mind...

    As I see it, in a SD situation even in low light I do not think that night sights would make a difference.

    I will not be shooting in a SD situation at more then 3-5 yards. If that is the case, a center mass shot can be obtained by point shooting faster then it can be with the sights.

    In that situation I would say practice point shooting a lot and muscle memory will take over if you ever have to use it.

    I have trijicon night sights on my G 22 gen4 and thankfully I have not had to test them out in low light or any other light. I do find that I prefer the factory glock sights in daylight or indoor lighting. They are larger and easier to pick up quickly. In a lit room unless the light source is behind you the night sights don't pop like the factory sights. I am not going to put them on my G23.

    On the plus side,It is a reassuring glow on the night stand which makes it quick to grab in the dark.

    Glad I found the forum... It beat searching all over the Internet for answers to my Glock questions.

    True that !!...but I would rather have them and not need them than not have them and need them...

    I do see and know the point your making tho...
