    Trigger is amazing. Very nice gun overall.

    Very nice!

    Do you plan to go with the taller sights as a backup?

    Yes I do. Was hoping to maybe get a recommendation from some members here as to a good option.

    I haven't had a chance to shoot it much since its completion. Im going to the range sunday. I put a few rounds through it just to ensure it functioned as I went with the lightest everything since its strictly a target gun. Ill give a range report when I get back.

    Would like to see a picture of the fast fire after a couple thousand rounds. Will it look like this?

    Th hot ticket for sighting in a dot is a bore laser, like the SightMark. Set it at about 30 yards, and you are dead nuts without blowing thru a bunch of caps.

    Im gonna guess so. Judging by home many cases Ive had fly over my head or hit me in the head with pistols over the years Im thinking thats what will happen.

    I didnt even think about that. Think Ill go look for a bore laser today.

    Thats the hope in the not too distant future. Thought about compensator for now but dont know if they really do that much.

    Isnt that what friends are for?

    You don't need backup sights, that's a bunch of Tactical Teddy nonsense started by Gabe Suarez. Open Division guns have been around in competition since the mid 70s' and today's dots are 1000 times better and the batteries last for years. Inside of 7 yards you just look thru the window.

    Compensators are really for competition, they do cause the gun to run flatter, but you have to hand load your rounds very hot to make them work right. And running Major 9 in a Glock is very hard on the gun. They won't run on white box ammo.'

    Brass to the face seems like a late model Gen3 issue. My kid ended up putting in the Gen 4 ejector and an Apex extractor. That fixed the problem.

    Here he is testing it, even throws it out without a magazine, OEM Glocks won't do that.



    And running my 25 year old 2 pin G17 at a local steel match, about 18 yards out

    Why were you on a swing shooting steel?

    That was the stage design. Makes it a little tougher. All competitions have stages that require movement and awkward shooting positions. It's not just standing behind a bench.

    After just replacing the sights on all 4 of my glocks, I can't recommend Dawson Precision, enough. Buy direct from them, and they have a point of aim impact guarantee. All 4 of my glocks were shooting high, they sent me 4 corrected front sights for all 4 guns, hassle free. Customer service is top shelf. But if it is strictly a race run, I wouldn't worry about it.

    And I concur with the zev trigger. Beware, when I run the #2 firing pin spring with Aguilla ammunition (which MAY have harder primers?) I get light primer strikes. I personally need to run at least the #3 spring. YMMV with softer primers.

    All 4 of my gen4 glocks spit brass into my face or onto my head. Same with my shooting partner's 4 glocks. My favorite is when a hot piece of brass wedges itself between my scalp and my earpro. hot hot hot!

    Cpt. I thought the Gen 4's had that problem fixed with flat point ejector?

    I'm no glock expert... just became a glock shooter a little over a year ago. What I remember HEARING, was that the Gen3s are fine, and the "brass to the face" was something introduced with the Gen4. I could be totally wrong...Maybe I am missremembering or I got bogus info, but all 8 glocks I have experience with (my 4, and my buddies 4), all shoot brass back at us. Actually, one of my buddies is a gen3 I think, maybe that one doesn't do it. We shoot so many guns so frequently, back and forth it's a bit tough to keep them all straight. But I believe all our gen4s do it.

    Every time we go up shooting together, we come back down with 2 or 3 black marks on our foreheads :D Doesn't really bother us.

    Refer to the close-up picture of the dot above. That is what the latest and greatest Glocks do. Eject straight up at your face -hopefully you have a dot to block them.

    The Apex extractors with stronger springs help, but do not totally fix the problem.

    At least on the two Gen 4's I've been working on.

    Gen 3's can do it as well.
    My buddies 19.3 ejects poorly. Also likes the occasional stove pipe.
