    I have a Glock 35 that I use for USPSA that has a bunch of modifications:

    1. KKM barrel
    2. Grip tape
    3. Dawson ICE magwell
    4. Dawson sights
    5. Trigger kit from Vanek Custom (breaks at 2 lbs)

    So which mods do I need to remove to be GSSF legal?

    Is there a required power factor for ammo or can I load up some super light .40 for GSSF matches?

    My guess would be that 1,2,3 and 5 would have to be removed. The Dawson sights, if they are a post and notch type would be OK. As far as the ammo, just be sure it will reliably cycle the gun and that it will knock down the steel targets. Good luck.

    PS You could just use this a good excuse to buy another glock and get you a 17 or 19.

    you can leave them all on then shoot unlimited -- good luck with that.

    Grip tape is fine, that can stay.

    Vanek makes a GSSF legal trigger, if you have that one you're okay. The "break" or trigger pull weight isn't as important as the components... they must be Glock (but can be polished, etc, which can result in a low pull).

    As was said, the sights, as long as they are "notch and post" would be legal, and there is NO power factor for GSSF. If the bullet will knock over the steel plates, and punch a hole in the cardboard, you're good to go.

    Mag well is OK in Stock classes if it is plastic (& does not add significant weight) and therefore does not constitute a competitive advantage.

    Not OK if it is metal (brass, aluminum, unobtanium and adds weight) and thus constitues a competitive advantage.

    OK if in Unlimited.

    Also don't forget that the KKM Barrel is ONLY allowed in Unlimited Master. Plus the G35 is only allowed in Competition and Unlimited Master Categories. So of the 7 different categories in GSSF the G35 is authorized in 2.

    Good stuff from folks more experienced than me. Listen to what they said and ignore most of my post. The part about getting a 17 or 19 is still good advice.

    Had to think about the magwell. You're right, as long as it's not metal (I suspect OP's is).

    They're easy enough to remove. An FYI to OP: you won't be swapping mags or drawing from a holster on the clock.

    They're all legal depending on what category you want to shoot in.

    Seeing as he's got a 35 he may be more inclined to get a 22 or 23.

    Which is why in GSSF the weight is the only issue.

    It's function of speeding up a reload is not a factor since there are no reloads "on" the clock.
