    If I ever got a hankering for a .40S&W I'd buy either a G-35 or G-24.

    Congratulations.

    I'd have put all of the $ you spent on aftermarket parts, (except for the custom slide cover plate, that's cheap and a nice touch), into mags, ammo, and maybe improved sights.

    To each his own, but sh1t, you haven't even fired it and you're replacing part of the trigger assembly, the barrel, the recoil springs, etc... I just don't understand that mentality. :dunno:

    I was inbetween just those 2 being I'm getting my ccw permit I figured I would go with the 35 hopefully getting a 22, 21, 36, or maybe even a 23 for a little more practical carry but I fell in love with the 35 the first time I shot one

    I've shot alot of glocks just never owned one myself, the barrel in my opinion is just insurance if I choose to shoot a hp round, recoil tube makes it more accurate (consistent) springs incase I need them with the porting, the 35 I shot had the trigger connector in it which I liked, and I have 800 rounds that are waiting at home with my parts, I know its not the greatest idea to buy all these parts but I have nothing else to do in this state I'm in :/

    I feel exactly the same way. Not to mention, if you shoot a gun for the first time after modding it out with that many non factory parts, it will make it very difficult to diagnose any problems with reliability that it might have.

    To the OP, fantastic gun and enjoy it safely. :wavey:

    That does clear some things up. It sounds like you've got more experience with Glocks than I would've expected considering your age. Regardless of that, as I said, to each his own and you should spend your money however you want. Personally, I've got too many different firearm "works in progress" and calibers to support to spend that much $ on the minutiae of a pistol that already works so well from the factory, so I've learned to love the factory trigger rather than replace perfectly good parts, (I do enough of that in my AKs :supergrin:).

    It sounds like you do have a very specific ideal you're (re)building this pistol toward and that's cool. I will be interested to see the end result, and hear a range report! :)

    Yeah, I haven't really ever been content with stock stuff, I just wish I had some gunsmithing experience to go along with the fab work, not that confident with guns so I'll just sick to cars and bikes....and most definately I'll have a range report up after I go thru a couple boxes of ammo:supergrin:

    Long slides are cool and it will be fun to shoot. It is nice to buy a piece or two at a time and then put it all together like you are doing.

    Thanks everyone, and yes I can't wait to assemble it, I don't think I'm gunna even shoot it with stock parts, maybe use the recoil tube to see if the stock lb spring will work so I'm not putting loctite in the stainless tube 3 different times
