If i was only able to do one, it would be the same as I would do for a M4. I would be looking for that one thing that gives me added capability. I would put on a light. My EDC does have a weapon mounted light. Stock sights are still usable even though there are better ones out there. That goes for everything else on the weapon.

Extended slide lock and extended slide stop lever. Maybe it's my little hands, but these make a Glock real quick to field strip.

For me, if it's just one thing, it would be an AeroTek extended slide release! YMMV

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.
