Nothing crazy. Suppressor sights, RMR, and a WML.
Just night sights, only thing really needed imo.
Nothing but OEM.
Steel sights and medium beavertail backstrap.
The only thing I add to any of our GEN5’s is some pew pew pew.
So I absolutely love my glock 19. I have a Vortex venom, supressor night sights, tlr8a, and Johnny glock trigger. I got a vedder holster for it and decided that for every day carry with me being a bigger guy it was just a bit too big. Especially in my car which has bucket seats. I was debating a p365xl or 43x mos as my EDC.
I ended up with the p365xl for a couple reasons. I am planning to keep the gun totally stock to keep size down. The p365xl came with night sights, a really nice trigger, and 2 more rounds with 15 rd factory mags available(although the mags are a little crazy price wise, I have grabbed 2 15rd mags to accompany the 2 12rd mags it came with.) These are all things except maybe the trigger i would have paid extra for with the glock. Although I am not planning to put a red dot on I am glad I have the option. The one plus I saw with the glock is that adding a red dot does not require complete removal of the rear sight like it does on the sig. The p365xl is also a little smaller. If I am being honest the main reason was the p365xl came in stock at LGS before the 43x mos. It is also a bit smaller and thinner. I am very happy with the p365xl, I have about 400 rds through it and a vedder holster and compared to ccw with my glock 19 you barely even feel it in your waistband.
My glock is now my bedside and 3gun firearm. Since I have only been at this about half a year I am also happy to have a variety of brands just to get a feel for what I like. My opinion thus far is that glock and sig make really great weapons and you and you can't go wrong with either
I went a smige overboard.

It came unloaded. I modify it by loading it and then returning it to factory specification. I repeat this modification many times so not to get bored.
I recently bought a new 19.5 with stock night sights.
I noticed right away it required serious modifications. After a couple hundred rounds of range ammo, hollow points and reloads it was perfect!
Rock your Glock stock.
I'm not even going to buy a Gen 5.
all I need is night sites...
gen 5 senza il minimo dubbio. Sono assolutamente superiori.
By 'duty weapon' I'm assuming your law enforcement? If so, they make you purchase your own duty weapon and allow you to customize it?
Yes, I am law enforcement and no, we are issued Gen 4 17s but are allowed to purchase either a Gen 4 or 5 19, 17 or 45. It has to be approved by the department's armorer and you have to pass the CPOST 50 round course of fire before carrying the gun on duty. The armorer signs off on it and a memo gets sent up the chain for the Chief to sign. Basically the only stipulations in policy for personal firearms is no trigger modification, it must be black and it must be compatible with issued equipment, ie magazines, holster and light.
Most officers at my department stick with their issued 17, that only gets unholstered for qualifications. A few detectives carry 19s and a couple of guys on the team, including the armorer run a gen 5 19. Myself and one other guy on the team run the 45. I contemplated leaving this one bone stock but the changes I've made improve ergonomics for me and don't impact reliability.
I'm one of the unlucky few who just could not find a comfortable grip with the 17's finger grooves but I made due for years. Personally I shoot my 45 significantly better, especially with the undercuts. The stippling is more of a novelty since I wear gloves for the majority of my shift but I like it so whatever. The barrel is also simply because I think it looks cool. I honestly don't notice any difference between it and OEM.
Appreciate the reply. Always interesting to see what other agencies do and allow. I agree on the finger grooves, although full size is more tolerable for me than compact Glocks. Much prefer the Gen 5's though due to the lack of finger grooves.
BlackJack, That's a very tasteful stipple job.
Nice to see you get to carry a +2.
I don't own a Gen 5 and I don't really think they have any major improvements over previous generations except for the elimination of the finger grooves.
But If I were to modify any Gen 5 Glock what I would do is swap slides on a G43x with a slide from a regular G43 that didn't have the stupit forward slide serrations and the same thing for the G45.
The only other thing I would do is this:
