I got mine in the mail and installed last week. I really like the tabs in lieu of serrations on the lock. I look forward to testing it out.

Got an email back from Mr. Graham with instructions on how to order and sent him my order for two on Monday 6/10. Anxiously awaiting them to see how much they will help my groups sizes.

Would you please post some close-ups of the tabs on the current-one ?
I love the one on the old slide stop, I hope they are not changed...

Gun-Parts & Access.

The photo, taken with cell, isn't great quality, but you can see the difference between the photos on the first page

Fast delivery! I sent a money order out on Saturday and got the part today (Friday). And I like this new style versus the stock design. It looks great and is easier to grip.

Can't wait to try it out, thanks!

Sorry I am late; but here are some pics of the part installed (since freshilla got pics before installation):

freshila and thetoastmaster, thank you for the pictures!
I will second SJ40 and will say that I like the one with the serrations better - the grip on it is awesome, no matter if you have dirty or wet gun, hands... It is important to me this part to stick slightly more out than the OEM G-part, but this is me...
Anyway, I'm glad Mr Graham is manufacturing those again!

So I have 3 of the older production ones before he stopped making them. So the new ones are better?

Only if your intended Glock has a dotted pentagon barrel,otherwise there is no need for a new production MGSL. Seems as the dotted pentagon barrel marking was a indication of a a hardness change.
Which lead to reports of chipping barrel lugs with the old MGSL,so the change. SJ 40

Got his recent e-mail on these.


Sir,

Thank you for your interest in my MGSL.

The MGSL is designed to increase accuracy in any Glock pistol by an average of 7 - 35 %. It is a drop-in component and will work with any factory or aftermarket barrel and any generation and model Glock pistol EXCEPT the G36. Each lock has a lifetime warranty and a full money back guarantee.

Cost per lock is $30.00, plus a flat rate shipping charge of $8.00 for up to 5 pieces. The locks are sent by USPS priority mail.

Payment can be made with a check or money order ONLY made out to TR Graham. NO credit cards or paypal. Please include a note stating the number of slide locks, along with your full name, address and email with your order. Shipping is made the next full business day upon my receipt of the order.

Please send to -

TR Graham
PO Box 126422
Benbrook, TX. 76126

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at Grhm458@cs.com.

Regards,

I've got a two day class this Friday-Saturday. I'll be thoroughly testing my new MGSl. I have a backup G17, in case my primary goes down. With any luck there will not be a comparison between the two weapons. I'll get a subjective range report in though. It isn't a great help that Mr. Graham endorses the least improvement in accuracy in the G17.

I used it in a two-day CCW refresher. I did not shoot the gun from the bench at all (and I never will); but it did seem to inspire confidence. Whether it was the match grade slide lock or the new Warren Tactical sites I do not know, but I only dropped four points on the Utah POST test (not bad considering the rust I had to knock off).

I'll get some pics posted of the wear, if any, on the new part.

As for serrations versus the slope of the new part, I cannot speak to the older serrations, but the slope is plenty awesome. It makes tearing down the weapon a snap and doesn't get in the way when manipulating the pistol. In all, I plan on ordering more for my other GLOCKs.

There is on of these in a friends G17. When you take one and mate it to the barrel, there is only a small lip that's making contact. The "oversized" area really doesn't matter. If anything, what might attribute better accuracy is that it's machined flat and gets better contact with the barrel as opposed to the slightly convex stamped OEM part. The oversized area as previously mentioned can chip the barrel as it's locking up. But after lockup, there is only minor contact and the oversized portion is useless. Just my opinion.
