Other than polishing my contact points on my Glock carry guns I keep everything factory. I may change the connector to another factory Glock part but nothing on any of them is from an aftermarket company. 

What mods have you done to your carry Glock?

Just looking for opinions on triggers really. Id like to get a better trigger feel going on but afraid to mess with the reliability

I have shot it.  A lot.  

I have cleaned it.  Occasionally. 

It already had XS big dot night sights on it when I bought it (used of course).  


Before it was my carry gun I had it tricked out with a fancy pants trigger, guide rod, etc.... so my daughter could shoot IDPA with a "trick" gun,

when she moved out, it went back to boring stock....    I like boring.

Sights.  Mags.  Holsters.  Weapon light.  Shoot it.  Clean it sometimes, more to get debris from carry out than get it "clean."

I don't need or want my working guns to be "tricked out."  All looks and no advantage on making fast hits and I don't want anything to do with it.  I shoot the stock trigger damn well.  I've been considering the roland special idea as I can see having less muzzle rise would make for faster shooting.  I can also see how a RDS can help if you are willing to put in the time.  I shoot irons well enough at defensive ranges that a RDS is probably not worth it compared to the costs associated (sight, milling, practice time, holsters, etc).

My Glock 26:
Ameriglo Night Sights
APEX Trigger
APEX Plunger
APEX Extractor
Dues Ex Machina OEM+ Tool Steel Striker
Glock OEM plunger, striker, and trigger spring
Glock OEM DOT Connector
Glock OEM Standard Slide Stop
Vickers Tactical Mag Release
Very light polish job by hand.

Most of the components above do nothing for improving "performance" as far as trigger pull weight, pre-travel, over-travel, etc. I personally do not like some of the MIM parts glock uses as I had issues with the stainless coating flaking off fairly quickly (never had one break though). Hence why they were replaced with just better material parts. I also am not a huge fan of Glock's plastic trigger and prefer a metal one. The APEX trigger is one of the only aftermarket triggers out there that provides little to no change in regards to the trigger pull outside of the its flat geometry. Which is a good thing. Passes all safety checks and still retains a very good sear engagement with the striker.

I think many Glock users have come full circle when it comes to "tricking" out their glocks. I know I have. I have been through the ringer when it comes to aftermarket. The most important thing I got out of it, is learning how most of it is is all excess stuff, not needed, and the peace of mind of simply going back to mostly stock components and spring arrangements.

1,000 round trigger job, dot connector, NY1 spring and a relatively small and unnoticeable magwell on the way.  

I initially didn't want anything other than Glock parts, but I hit my mag at the back of the magwell a few times and decided I needed an extended magwell.   I think I wound up with the agency arms 19 gen4 for the large backstrap.

Now I'm tempted to get the Overwatch Precision trigger, but like I said, I like keeping Glock parts on it.  My reset causes the gun to move a little while I'm dryfiring, I was hoping a new trigger would help.

I carried a G23 for the last five years but recently switched back to a 19. Same mods to each: minus connector, bickers mag release, raven magwell, night sights, usually an x-300. I am trying out the Roland special style comp setup once my mini comp shows up.

OEM Minus Connector
Reduced Safety Plunger Spring
Brass Grip Plug Weight


The grip plug weight is the greatest thing ever, cuts recoil dramatically and handles better.

Stock Glock trigger a tad too heavy for my liking.

In all honesty there really are no good Glock triggers. I love my Glocks, but it isn't for the trigger. The design makes it very hard to do much with it in terms of improvement. You can do a lot more with an M&P trigger (different design). Even though I usually carry a G19, I picked up a CZ P-10 C, and man is the trigger unreal! Here is a little review I just wrote:

Nothing. A stock gun is the best thing to shoot someone with, if you gotta go to court. A lawyer will argue that by modifying your pistol, you intended or wanted to kill someone by making your gun "more deadly", or "more murdery".

I had to send my P10c back to CZ... only got to put 750 rounds through it before the slide release spring on the left hand side jumped out of its recess and jammed in between the frame and locking block. I do really like it too and really agree with you on the trigger. Bummed out. Though my Glocks have been holding true since I have owned them, they do not feel as good in the hand as the P10c did.

I have no idea. Of the cases I have been involved with or observed, the only thing about the weapon that was examined was to ensure that it in fact functioned. Most of the time the prosecutor doesn't even learn what kind of firearm or even caliber when determining good shoot or not. The only time I have ever seen modification be an issue is if an officer's weapon was modified in a way not agency approved. The results there were internal disciplinary actions if anything at all.

It has been raised at least one by a laweyer in open court. Yes this is a cop and now exactly what we would face but its been raised before.

“Inscripted on the officer’s gun, and I hate to use profanity, but it said, “you’re f*****,”’ Laney Sweet, Daniel Shaver’s wife said....
“That statement tells me this is a person who’s enthusiastic about killing people,” Marc Victor, lawyer for Sweet and her late husband, argued. “That’s what that inscription means.”

Functional mods are one thing. Writing nasty grams to the people you shoot on your gun is stupid.

The answer to any of that nonsense is always..."If it is good enough for professionals (or insert LEOs, Military, etc), than it is good enough for me to protect myself and my family. When it comes to our protection, I only use the best." Anyone on a Jury would be like..."yep, that makes perfect sense."

Hmmm, it has a massive effect on accuracy for me. I start with a factory trigger, make an improvement that lightens the trigger, my groups tighten up. Make another improvement, my groups tighten up etc.

The difference is most pronounced with scoped rifles at distance. Start with a 6 lb trigger on a rifle and work you way down to 1.5 lbs, and it is a different world. But it is pretty noticeable on pistols too for me.

Under the logic of that article adding a light to a weapon they would draw the conclusion that you added the light so that you could identify your target so that you could more easily land kill shots.

And I may notice if I'm slow firing. This was done with my Glock 17 Gen 4 at 7 yds firing a round every 3/4 of a second to a second. My 1911 target would look the same. It was a Dan Wesson Valor and it had a phenomenal trigger.

I used to just change to night sights, but after having a longslide glock with the extended slide lock and take down, I now put those on all of them.  I don't like the extended mag release.  It makes bad things happen at the worst times.  The smooth butt plug keeps the hole filled.  Even Glocks like to be happy. 

I will add that as my eyes get older than fuck, I am thinking that fiber optic sight would be much more useful than night sights.  When I finally try a set, that is gonna be an expensive day.
