    I change out the sights as soon as possible. Everything else stays stock.

    Glock factory night sights. I install them on every Glock I own.

    On second thought, I'll stick with Ameriglo CAP sights. Thanks for the heads-up. Overall, I still think Glock's OEM steel rear W/O sight is under-rated.

    I heartily agree with adding copious amounts of ammo to every Glock handgun purchase.

    Metal sights at a minimum, night/fiber if that floats your boat. But definitely get rid of the plastic sights.

    I agree that the best mod for any Glock owner is shooter training. It is a fine pistol that doesn't NEED anything right out of the box. That being said, I know it isn't what this thread is about.

    All of my Glock's have night sights from various manufacturers, OEM smooth face triggers for my compacts/subs, OEM extended slide stop levers, and Pearce grip extensions for my subcompacts. I don't even really consider the OEM parts as mods but included them as they don't ship that way from the factory.

    I went through my phase of installing OEM "-" connectors in my pistols but have since taken them out as my shooting technique has improved enough that I do not need them and actually prefer the trigger in stock configuration.

    Is teaching the owner to shoot a "modification"? Other than that, nothing else really improves it.

    No offense, but when somebody posts a "what can I modify on my Glock" thread, it tells me they haven't identified a need and they are wanting to make a change just to be doing it. Those people aren't too bright and Glock is the wrong gun for them.

    Most important and (only) Glock modification, replace the sights.

    Really? That's a narrow minded thought process if I ever did see one. In your opinion they are fine out the box and nothing else needs to be done to them. Other people would beg to differ.

    Why would Glock be wrong for them if they want to modify one? Just because you say so...?

    As I see it, it is one manufacture that actually has aftermarket support for them. In full force that is. And nothing is perfect. Not even with addons.

    I've never owned a Glock before in my life until about two weeks ago. I bought it for many reasons...

    1. It fit my budget.
    2. It fit my hands.
    3. It was in the caliber I wanted.
    4. It fit my Conceal Carry needs.
    5. Because it has overwhelming aftermarket support.

    Night sites... I dunno they help you see in the night. I would think that would be a benefit to anyone who was thinking about them. Or any sites for the matter that help you see the target better.

    Yes, I have & it works great. About all I use on all my Glocks.


    I do black out the white outline on the rear.

    PA30s, I think you missed Bren's point. He's talking about people who want to mod their Glock just to mod their Glock. I think Bren would agree that, if you've identified a shortcoming (ie., a shortcoming to you), then go ahead and take care of that shortcoming.

    Personally, I changed out the slide lock lever and the slide lock on my G-30. But it was ONLY after I identified the stock parts as not meeting my personal needs.

    Night sights. Then get to work on your 1000 round trigger job.

    Good sights and maybe a little skateboard/rubber tape depending on the model.
