Yea if I had to pick one it would be a flashlight.

Nothing. Unless you're handloading and need to change spring weights, no benefit.

Why not play with it a while and see what -- if anything -- you're not happy with. Y'know... if it ain't broke, don't "fix" it.

Everybody's got their pet peeves, but they may not be your pet peeves. Not much sense in changing anything unless there's a need to change. Just cuz So-and-so "needs" a custom barrel, custom sights, and a high-speed, low-drag trigger do-hickey doesn't mean you do.

You may decide you like it as is, bone stock. If so, you'll save yourself some money.

One good scratch.

Just to get over the "newness".

Then shoot it like it was intended.

Night sights.

Twenty five cent trigger job.

Smooth Glock factory trigger.

I've also grown to like the factory extended slide release lever.

Gotta have a "combat" setup IMO -- steel vs plastic, and highly visible front with wide rear.

I've got a couple glocks with 3.5lb trigger connectors and the 25cent trigger job...but wouldn't change the connector on a carry gun. Too much liability IMO.

My first mod was night sights on my G23 gen 4 duty weapon. I also have a Hogue or Pachmayr grip(can't remember which one now) and an eagle, globe and anchor USMC Slide cover plate (just for heck of it). To round that out, I got a new connector and spring kit for 3.5 lbs trigger pull. To me, the night sights are a necessity for duty, but that new trigger pull is just so nice, running a close second to the sights.

Night Sights.

Other mods can be nice but aren't necessary.

I think what you meant to say......

(1) Good night sights

(2) Buy a Gen 4.

Here's a good video of what some of the big names use. I thought it was a good video.

While I most certainly agree that aftermarket sights are a GREAT modification, the stock sights work well, for the intended purpose of the Glock pistols.

My old (Gen2) G21 has Trijicon night-sights. The other 4 Glock(s) have stock sights.

The 'best' modification is the 'best' ammunition that you can afford.
Buy it, until your wallet hurts, then buy some more.

Practice. Practice. Practice.

Range ammo is 'o.k.' for a day at the range, but, TRAIN with what you're going to carry, for defense purposes.

YMMV.

One more vote for night sights. Trijicon HD's get my vote.

After that, just buy ammo and targets.

Trigger if I can just do one.. But I always mod the factory sights so I can see them better, that doesn't cost anything other than a little time.
