Flocks of glocks

Hey guys I'm new here at glock talk and new to glocks in general I just picked up my glock 23 gen 3 last week and love it so far it is going to be a great duty weapon let me know what I guys think maybe done personal experiences or thoughts and recommendations also how easy is it to mess the stock sights up? Say practicing draw from a holster would that loosen or weaken them at all?

I don't mind the stock sights at all... I have a 1st gen G17 (I believe it was made in '88 or '89) that still has what I'm guessing are the original sights. They are tight despite me using them to pry open the slide at least twice on stuck cartridges.

Only time I have seen the Dept. Armorer change out the stock sights was after a pistols ended up top down on the concrete range pad, and the other got ground up in a apprehension street fight. You will probably end up putting night sights on your new duty arm. With the LE price you canít go wrong with the factory N/S made by Meprolight. Check with GT Dist.

jcrook, the stock sights do work, and pretty well. That being said, they are probably the wekest part of the Glock, and being plastic can break if you do something like dropping the gun, or whatever. If you like the stock sights, you can get them in a metal version, or go with any of the great options available in nightsights. The stock Glock nightsights are very nice, and fairly cheap. Nightsights are a must on any gun that is going to have any self defense time, IMO. If its your duty gun, get some sights made of something stronger than plastic and that will give you some feedback in low light shooting. G23, best Glock ever made, they are just amazing.

For a duty gun, maybe night sights. As for anything else, keep it stock.

Okay guys need some help here I was just taking my 23 apart for cleaning and I scooted the slide too far back to take down but the take down pins were still engaged when I dry fired to reset the slide came off and hit the ground so I reassembled and repeated the process but check the takedown pins unfortunately I still slid the slide to far and when I dry fires to reset it the guide spring rod came out the front ....so I took it down everything looks normal and seems to function ok did I screw up? Should I take it back to the store? ...I'm scared 😪

Sounds like you don't have the guiderod down in the half-moon shaped cut in the barrel.

Make sure it's all the way down in there, then put it back together.
