    I just received mine in the mail a few day ago. It looks to be made out of a much higher quality steel. The ridges on the ends are cut very precise and are much easier to grip. Over all the slide lock looks and feels like a huge improvement over the stock one. Thanks T. R. Graham!

    Thank you, sir. Now, you need to take your pistol out and shoot it for accuracy.

    By any chance do you know if the MGSL is IDPA legal.

    Yes, it's just an internal modification.

    Ok guys I need some help here. I have one of Mr.Grahams MGSL's but I cannot figure out how to get the stock SL out to put in the new one. If someone could pass along a little direction I would appreciate it. My little friend would also (G27):supergrin:

    Take a punch or Glock armorers tool (what ever you use to detail strip your pistol)
    and push down on the top of the V shaped spring holding the slide lock up, while pushing the spring flat just push the slide lock out the channel it runs in, it does NOT take any force just a bit of coordination, to install it slide it back in the channel and depress the spring when you get to it, and make sure it is captured in the notch.

    Great! I was reading these posts that you had moved to DFW area and was thinking you would not be in pasadena in march. Glad you will be there.

    I used a golf tee to press the spring down. Thumb and forefinger holding the sides of the gun and the palm pressing down on the tee. Take the new MGSL and push out the old old from one side, leaving the new one centered. Remove tee. Very easy.

    I tested mine today but haven't looked at the targets as yet. I started the day with 3 targets for later comparison at the start of break-in. I then put about 180 rounds through my 34 shooting at steel and shot 3 targets from a rest to see how much they differed from the first 3. I want to run the targets through OnTarget when I get time. Rough guesstimate...I see some improvement. I'll test it again at 250 and 300. I know there is a break-in period of upwards of 200 rounds. I'll reserve judgement until I get to 400-500 rounds and I have more data.

    Yup, you don't need any special tools to install a MGSL....a pin punch, golf tee, paper clip - hell, even a long fingernail will work. :supergrin:

    Hicksville Kid - Let us know your results when you get more rounds fired.
