I really really want to try this trigger on my 17L.....
One of these days.
Can only think of ONE 'Reason to keep your Glock stock'.....if you don't know what you are doing,
I heed Mas Ayoob's advice and change nothing but sites on my EDC. Changing your trigger pull could cause you issues with a DA god forbid you ever had to use it in a defensive situation.
I have hand loaded defensive ammo in many of my firearms right now.
In the real world, most who know what they're doing find it easy to shoot them well stock, and tend to leave them stock except for sights.
I purchase and carry my glocks completely stock not even night sights. Ive been shooting for 33 years and was in Law Enforcement for 6 years all of which i carried yep you guessed it a glock and in stock format. no need to fix what is not broken../...
Post_87, thanks for your opinion and welcome to Glock Talk.
There's usually no need to respond to a thread, in this case, over 5 years old.
Sometimes, the prior posters are "MIA" (haven't been heard from) for quite awhile if not gone from this earth.
Trijicon HD's and if you like a flat or smooth trigger shoe like Apex, it changes nothing mechanically but just feels better during long range sessions and with the Apex shoe it has a nice finger indexing spot.
For me years of experimentation with different aftermarket parts and I do mean every part I'm convinced now that Glock OEM parts are surperior or at least they work together in a superior way. I will say during the years of changing parts and building P80's (P80 builds can lead to insanity, loud outburst of profanity and loss of hair) I've learned a lot especially diagnosing issues so I think it was like paying for a education, Glock University maybe.
There are some really good quality aftermarket parts but how well they work in a Glock frame or slide can be hit or miss doesn't matter if it's billet steel measured by super future lasers and DARPA hand me down machinery. Glock by design has loose tolerances so you can interchange parts and better reliability, many of the aftermarket manufacturers really like to tighten things up which pretty much goes against what makes a Glock so reliable. Still though I get it it is really fun to change out parts and see what you can get out of it.
I never cry foul even if someone changes out every single part on a Glock because I know if they continue to do so they will more than likey eventually go full circle. It's a journey man.
I used to change things in my Glock's many years ago, I wish I could have back all the money I wasted then. Out of all guns I shoot the best my G17 gen 5 with only a connector and sights.
Trying to "dress up" or "pimp out" a Glock is like putting lipstick on a pig; it doesn't make the pig look any better, it makes the pig look ridiculous.
Extended magazine releases should be used on competition guns only.
Lay your gun down on a flat surface with the magazine button facing down - then apply downward pressure from the top. If the magazine pops out - you might want to reconsider carrying a gun with an extended mag release.
Happens quite a few times at stages that begin with table starts.
AYOOB does not agree and he knows a bit more than most
GSSF Stock GLOCK.
It's your DPM recoil spring. Years ago I tried one in a Springfield XD9. Turned it from a flawless weapon into one with constant feed problems. Put the stock RSA back in, back to perfect.
My EDC is a Glock 23.4. Stock except for sights. Utterly reliable.
Just my opinion.
#1 reason to "leave your Glock stock".
IT IS NOT THE GUN! It is YOU! Its YOU, its YOU!
modifying a glock is a balancing act you can't just change 1 or 2 parts you need a good combo of parts, sounds like your striker spring was over powering your recoil spring ( to light of one ) causing the light strikes.
Yes for example IIRC if you lighten the striker spring you should run a heavier trigger spring. I believe that is correct I have not done that in awhile.
Example a 4lb striker spring and a 6lb trigger spring. I think if you don't run a heavier trigger spring then your reset won't be as strong.
Mas is carrying a complete custom what are you speaking about ?
Do as I say--not as I do!!!
