    Six months ago, I had zero Glocks. Now I have three. What has drawn me to the brand is the lack of annoying variables and "bugs" that have to be worked out. For that reason, I'm in the process of liquidating all of my non-Glock semi-auto handguns, and I'll be danged if I'm gonna start introducing variables of my own by messing with my Glocks.

    thousands of Glock owners have done mods with NO problem, sometimes those mods are done incorrectly and problems do arise:dunno:

    99.9999% of the malfunction threads start like this: the only thing I have done to my Glock is the .25 trigger job. Glocks function flawlessly out of the box. Stop messing with them people.

    Some people always think they can "improve" something. If it works, don't F with it.

    Yep! If you want to tinker, buy a cheap 1911 and tinker your hairy behind off.

    But leave the Glock alone.

    There are some aftermarket parts that are better than factory. There are some that are junk. There are also botched installation jobs.

    I used to mess with all of my glocks... ext. slide stop and mag rel, 3.5 connector and night sights.

    Now, all I do is polish all of the trigger contact points, and install night sights and call it good.

    They all work just fine.

    Some mods are worthwhile. Metal night sights, smooth face triggers on the compact and sub-compact models, grinding off the finger bumps...

    My two Glocks are stock with one exception - Agrip on my G22. Since I CCW I avoid modifying my Glocks with new triggers, connectors, etc. The only mod I am considering is to replace my stock rear sight on my G30 with LaserLyte.

    You tell folks not to mess with them yet you did a .25 trigger job?
    Do you have any idea how many folks have screwed up a .25 trigger job?
    Any mod is just like a .25 trigger job, If done right and done with quality parts then its just fine.

    I try to attend one or two shooting schools a year. Every Glock that I have seen problems with at these schools has been because someone has put in some crap after market part(s) thinking it will may his gun "run" better.

    The last one I witnessed was a Glock 20. This shooter had replace the all mag floor plates with a +2s and added a stainless steel guide rod. When one of the floor plates came off the spring shot in front of me and all the ammo dropped to the ground. Later the gun would not go in to battery because of the guide rod. He finished the course with a stock GL 19 that another shooter loaded him.

    I have a G-22 that is straight stock OEM. I have a SA Mil-Spec 1911 that is straight stock OEM. The same is true of all my S&W revolvers. That having been said, I have almost always modified any 1911 I ever owned. And I have been thinking hard about making a few changes to my G-22... i.e., night sights, lazer, trigger job. Using quality parts it beggars the imagination that one could not modify a Glock in exactly the same manner that so many have customized 1911's, various Ruger 10-22's, etc.

    The really neat thing about the Glock is that the owner can do just about all modifications without resorting to a professional gunsmith. With care and a little common sense, one can try out different ideas and see if they meet ones expectations. If they work... good. If they do not work... one can always return the gun to OEM condition. To some degree the same is true of the 1911, etc. Maybe that explains some of the popularity of the 1911 and the Glock... both are extremely adaptable by the end user. JMHO. Sincerely. Brucev.
