    There's a bunch of modifications out there. Lightening the trigger, extended slide release, extended magazines, sights, steel guide rods/springs, lasers and even barrels.

    Do they really incur an advantage? Do they lead to a liability?

    Any objective truth that KKM barrels actually make the Glock more accurate or reliable?

    I was curious. I like to keep mine stock except for night sights.

    Thanks!

    The Glock armorers by and large don't seem to care for steel guide rods. Extended slide stops make handling easier and more positive for some users. I've found Bar-Sto barrels do improve Glock accuracy, haven't worked with other aftermarket barrels for the Glock sufficiently to form an opinion.

    For triggers, I wouldn't go below 5.5 pounds total pull weight except on a dedicated competition gun.

    FWIW, my own carry Glocks are modified only with sights, and with the NY-1 trigger systems I have in most of them. Some have also had the grips stippled or reshaped.
