    Hello all,

    Contemplating getting a Glock 43 customized with Mod 1. I saw an outstanding YouTube review about one of their products. The Glock looked great.

    I have one question about the video- what is the purpose of a dish cut?


    Thank you!

    The dish cut is to make the slide lighter. It would be good to hear how this functions through a few thousand rounds, because it might affect the gun harmonics making it less reliable - might.

    For my taste, this overhaul didn't appeal. The grip texture and capacity on the stock gun are fine - I like keeping the grip as short as possible. The undercut is nice. I would want to try the trigger and see just how "crisp" it really is. I don't care for the creep you usually get with a connector mod, if that's what they did. And it looks like the serrated trigger shoe was left on the gun - replacing that would be one of the main things I look for.

    Very interesting. So would front serrations also hurt the harmonics?

    It also looked like they cerakote'd the barrel. Am I mistaken?

    The front serrations seem pretty useless to me as well, but I'm not a TV detective with a script requiring silly "press checks" all the time. You can't rule out the affect on gun harmonics either. The dish cut and front serrations require them to refinish the slide. These mods must have removed the metal treatment (formerly called tennifer) in the areas affected - another minus.

    Very interesting.

    Is cerakote a good or bad idea?

    And do you think cutting the trigger cut more would hurt the harmonica?

    No opinion on the cerakote. I haven't ever needed to refinish any of my Glocks which range in age from 1 month to 26 years. The finish has changed over the years, and I like some better than others, but not enough to have them redone.
