    I know a lot of you guys like to make adjustments to your stock glocks, so this question is for you. If you were only able to make one modification to your glock, what would it be? Would it be sights, trigger mod, stippling, flashlight attachment, etc.? And to be more specific, lets say this glock is going to be your EDC.

    I have tried quite a few different things, but usually i just come back to stock, with aftermarket sights. Usually trijicons or ameriglo.

    Yeah - Night sights are good, but not totally 100% necessary in all cases.

    If I could only do just one mod, it would be to smooth the "bumps" on either side of the trigger safety lever (they keep the safety centered in the opening in the trigger face).

    Sometimes there is a bit of extra plastic flash on these bumps or a sharp rear edge. If you pull the trigger straight back as you should, you will never notice any hesitation. However, if you pull the trigger to one side or another, the trigger safety can get hung-up on the sides of its slot in the trigger face. This can actually prevent you from firing if the flash is bad enough.

    I have experience with several Glocks with this problem. If you know about it, it takes only a minute to bevel a smooth ramp on the bumps' rear surface with a X-acto knife.

    Steel sights. Usually Meprolight night sights.

    Here's my honey do list>that I finish really quick

    trijicons HD night sights
    Hogue grip

    Just those three mods help her shooting a lot...
    but now she thinking about a weapon light... she
    already has a AR setup that most would die for
    and keeps that by her bed at night :shocked:

    I believe I created a Monster> :supergrin:
  7. A couple of cases of ammo and a decent training class are what most new Glock owners need.

  8. Yes.

    And night sights if you like them.

    If your modification is driven by "what can I change" instead of some need you see, you probably don't need anything. A new Glock needs to be loaded - that makes it an instant competition or self-defense gun. At most I put some grip tape on a competition-only gun.

  10. Sights. My preference, and the one I have on a number of my Glocks, is the Trijicon night sight #GL01.

    Without a doubt, sights. I go Warren Tactical and never look back.

    Night sights. That's it. Trigger is very good out of the box, mounted light not really sensible for permit carry (great for a dedicated home defense gun- if you've received training with the light). No stipling necessary.

    Night sights for me and replacing the serrated trigger on compacts/sub compacts with a smooth trigger.

    If I was going to do anything to my Glock it would be to change the sights to night sights. Other than that I do not feel a need to mess with a reliable pistol that I already shoot pretty darn well. I CC mine, it was never meant to be a range toy. If I can use it well enough to stop a threat while under stress in it's stock configuration I'm good.
