GLOCK Stock or Decked Out?

Recommended Posts

Do you prefer your carry GLOCK to be stock, or do you add personal touches?  If so, what do you do?  Does anyone use a replacement slide cover plate?  Change sights?  New trigger?  Just curious.

I only own 1 Glock, but I think my answer would depend on what I used it for.  For a SD pistol, make mine stock or close to it.  My G19 is a carry pistol, so I got factory night sights and have made no other hardware changes.  If I were building a gun for competition, I'd trick it out.

The internet is full of products designed to improve upon perfection.  It's Capitalism at its finest.  Not sure if any of the products have real merit, but I'm glad people are always trying to make things better.

I generally have kept my Glocks stock except for a recontoured FPS, but my Gen2 G19 doesn't even have that.

The Glock Gen4 MOS on my hip right now has the aftermarket FPS and a Glock OEM "-" connector, but I just ordered a smooth G17 Gen4 trigger, a 7lb striker spring, and maritime spring cups for it.  Don't ask me why...I couldn't tell you.o.O

I leave carry guns stock.  Several of my Glocks have a Glock (-) connector.

The only other modifications I've ever done to a Glock are to put a Glock adjustable rear sight on my Glock 20 and Glock 29, and when the trigger on my Glock 26 wore out, I replaced it with a flat trigger.

I think once you get used to the Glock trigger, there is little need to modify it.  That said, my gunsmith is one of the most competent shooters I know and he has aftermarket trigger parts in his carry gun (a Glock 21 with a holographic sight).

KKM barrels, i shoot lots of lead, and carry what i am used to.

front night sights from Glock.

just installed over sized slide locks on my G19, G29 and G20.

got tired of the struggle with OEM and arthritic hands.

huge improvement!

Most of my Glocks are stock, except for 2 G17's, and a G34. Those three have 3.5# connectors, and one of the 17's that is my travel gun, has night sights.

Bone stock for all of my carry guns. They all work well as designed, so I see no point in changing anything.

Now my fun guns are a different story.

Heinie Straight 8 night sights and a 25 cent trigger job.  If it came with a serrated trigger I swap it out for a smooth factory unit.  That's it.

Interesting, I prefer not to change the serrated trigger, and to do the 5000 round trigger job though it costs a little more than a quarter, but I like your choice of sights.

I swap out all my triggers for the smooth G17/G21 versions.  I don't even consider these to be true modifications, but I suppose they are.

Absolutely stock, as it comes out of the box, heck I leave it in the box, in the store, unpurchased.

I'll take CZ or HK , can't stand glocks. Just my opinion.

All my Glocks get the following:

- Lone Wolf barrel. They reduce the so called Glock bulge in the brass which is important for reloading, much better accuracy and often a 50 FPS velocity advantage.

- Truglo night sights. Very bright and they last at least 10 years. Those cheap Glock OEM plastic sights are a no go for me.

- MagGuts springs. They add a round without extending the magazine in length.

- A polish job an several parts to smooth out feeding as well as trigger pull.

How long have you used the MagGuts springs and on which models?

That was a little inconsequently written. MagGuts on my G42 only, been using it without issues for some 2 years now. I use Kriss extensions on my G40 and Pearce on my G29.

Stock with two tiny changes:

1. Over sized slide lock by Fixxxer- saves my old guitar playing fingers!

Fixxxer extended Best Grip angle Lock for ALL Glock Models and Generations 1-4 Excluding G36, G42, or G43 MODELS (extended takedown plate)

2. Pearce Grip plug. Now I have to store my Tootsi-Roll somewhere else.

Of all the Glocks I own, only the Glock 34 has been modded and that was with a set of fiber-optic sights. Everything else is all Glock.

I only own one stock Glock, it's a 36. All my others, both competition and carry have some form of internal modification. The only thing external is the sights. I don't do cosmetic modifications.

My 19 is mostly stock, I put Ameriglo nite sites on it but that about it. There is another upgrade I want to do but I haven't bought the part yet.
