    welcome...


    Barrel: if it is a match barrel its for a percieved accuracy increase or to shoot lead reloads.

    Some Glocks can convert to shoot other calibers, yours cannot.

    connectors: to change the feel of the trigger.

    I recommend that since this is your first, keep it stock until you are used to it and know what you want to do.


    oh and watch the caps lock :)

    ok cool. You can convert your 23 to shoot 9mm or 357 sig. Since you already have a 9mm, .357 Sig would be a better idea if you wanted to shoot something new

    some people see improvements with aftermarket barrels. I guess its up to you. Lonewolf, Storm Lake, and EFK Dragon(?) makes drop in ones and Bar-Sto is one that makes fitted (gunsmith) barrels.

    totally your call man. If its something you want to play with and spend a little money to try out something new, go for it. It's not hard and there are plenty of videos on youtube showing how.

    is there a big difference between detail stripping a gen 2 23 and a gen 4 gun? other then the 3 pins? is it remove 2 pins instead of three or mor intence then that?

    nope, same thing. Remember the locking block pin is the first pin to be removed and the first pin to be reinstalled. If you install the locking block pin after you install the slide stop lever, you will bend and damage the slide stop lever spring.

    Bar-Sto claim that their match fitted Glock barrels will shoot 1 inch groups at 25yds and 2 inch groups at 50. It sounds good, but at about $400+ it's an expensive modification.
