    Well bought my first glock the other day. I own many pistols but never a glock. I have been doing a lot of reading and surfing online. Main question I have is. Is it worth buying aftermarket parts and modding my glock? Dont wanna go to crazy just the basics I guess. Like extended slide lock and release, 3.5lb connector, grip force beaver tail, ss recoil spring assy. and tfo sights. Any info would be great.

    I would suggest going to a gun show or dealer that has a Glock Armorer and see them. If you have trouble with the slide lock, get the extended. If you are getting bitten by the slide, check out the beaver tail. I don't recommend the 3.5lb connector changing the recoil spring until you get used to the gun. If you plan on using it for concealed carry, I don't recommend the 3.5lb at all. I do recommend some steel or night sights for a self-defense gun. Night sights are great for a nightstand gun.

    Extended slide release, sights, and maybe, MAYBE the ss guide rod, but dont expect much out of the guide rod other than it being more durable.
    I tried the 3.5 connector and after shooting Glocks for a while I prefer the stock connector, the trigger weight is just right if you shoot from reset. (IN MY OPINION)

    try shooting it before you improve it to the point it won't work.

    :rofl::rofl:

    I agree there seems to be some statistical evidence that Glocks are more reliable with Glock OEM parts.

    Shoot the gun first before you start changing it.

    I am personally not capable of knowing what modifications a pistol needs until I have shot it for a while. I am obviously deficient in mental capacity, though, since there are so many people who can prescribe the necessary modifications for shooters they have never met.
