1988 Glock 17 Gen1 - upgrade or keep as-is

ok, need to figure out whether to keep my G17 stock as-is or upgrade it to get the most from it.
I already have a G22 modified including Wolf barrel (police trade).
But the Gen1 I think could do with some mods to aid in accuracy etc.
I tend to think of Glocks as tools and not heirlooms / sock drawer stuffers. but there is a certain coolness having a mint condition Gen1 with low miles :-)

I want to enter some GSSF competitions and I think using a Gen1 stock will not give me much of an edge over someone with a Gen4 RTF etc.

any one got any thoughts ?

It depends, if in a very good state, especially mint condition, I would probably keep as is. If I had the original box and such it would most likely become a safe queen. YMMV
