    Just seeing what everyone does for mods. For me, I do night sights, a grip plug, 4.5lb Glock connector (except work guns), extended slide stop (Glock) and extended mag release (Glock part, only on my gen4 17). I also put smooth triggers on my compact guns and a gen3 trigger on my gen4. I am going to do one extended mag for my G17, and I need a 9 rounder for my G30SF. Also- anyone run the Magpul 21 rounders?

    Better to spend to money on ammo and range time.

    I do put in the grip plug and change sights. That's it for changes. The sights I've been liking lately are the Truglo TFOs. Tritium lights up the pipes at night, and the slots light them up in the daylight.

    Other than sights and extended base plates, I've kept my guns stock. If I didn't like the gun as it came, then I would have bought something else.

    Talon grips and extensions for some of my G26 and G43 magazines. That's it.

    For the most part all I put on is Decal Grip, and a Pachmayer slip on grip. Just trying to make the grip a little thicker, and I like the feel of the Pachmayer. One of these days I'll learn how to spell it. I've got two sets of slip on grips laying on the dresser, and a grip plug. I'll get around to putting them on something one of these days.

    Just bought my third Glock last week (a Gen4 G26 this time) and broke it in Saturday. Always swap out sights for Trijicon HDs, install G34 style slide lock lever (which helps my stubby fingers work malfunctions), and apply grip tape.

    I like those trijicons. $140 is pretty high though. I need to do sights on my 17. Have you shot any other brand of night sights for comparison purposes?

    I used to leave guns stock. After 30 years or so of shooting pistols, I have found that some things work better for me and tweak my guns accordingly.

    I put Glock OEM night sights and smooth trigger, Apex extractor and non-LCI spring loaded bearing, a Vickers slide release and mag release, sandpaper grips (http://sand-paper-pistol-grips.com/sppg_web_site_009.htm), a grip plug, and a 35,000 round trigger job on my Gen 4 G19

    Here's my standard program for new and old Glocks:
    - OEM night sights.
    - OEM extended slide stop lever for full-size models.
    - OEM MINUS connector for Gen4 models to produce 5.0-lbf trigger pull.
    - OEM DOT connector for pre-Gen4 models to produce 5.0-lbf trigger pull.
    - For pre-Gen4 models, upgrade the trigger with trigger bar and trigger mechanism housing with latest OEM Gen3 version that has the improved coil trigger spring hook attachment point (for reduction of TS hook breakage).
    - Install OEM LCI extractor and spring-loaded bearing in place of original non-LCI parts. (I like the LCI...so does Glock.)
    - Replace all parts that may have been molested by previous owners. Absolutely no polish jobs on any parts ever.
    - Replace any part that may not be OEM.
    - If the pistol is not new, replace all springs, including slide lock spring and slide stop lever and spring.
    - Verify latest ejector version is installed.
    - Verify latest RSA version is installed.

    The prime directive has two parts:
    1. No aftermarket parts.
    2. No owner "improved" OEM parts.

    The second directive is to use the current version of OEM parts.

    Steel sights, aluminum slide cover plate, stainless non-captured guide rod, and a lot of shooting are what I do to a new Glock.

    Depends on the use for the gun.

    Personal Defense Glocks: (my g17 and g19s)
    Swap extended slide catch back to small one
    Sights (I prefer fiber optic)
    Undercut on trigger guard (I have huge hands, and an angled undercut is a necessity for me)
    Cut beaver tail
    Polished feed ramp
    Light on my bedside gun

    Competition Glock: (my g34)
    Swap extended slide catch back to small one
    Undercuts on trigger guard
    Competition trigger (I run a zev)
    Lightened firing pin
    Aluminum guide rod with spring tuned for action
    Cut Beaver Tail
    Polished feed ramp
    Sights (I prefer fiber optic)
    Extended base plates (I run TTs)

    Up until recently I changed sights, connector, springs etc.. I have returned all of my Glocks to stock except night sights. I may add Talon grip on my 43 but currently undecided.

    On my G26s I put night sights on them and undercut the trigger guard. My Gen 2 G17 is totally stock.

    back in Arcadia, FL, again
    Blacked out sights, also modified to give tighter picture. Finger grooves and grip texture removed with granulated tape on front and rear straps. Also have a piece of granulate where the palm of my weak hand goes. Quasi 25 cent trigger job. That's it for me. If I get another Glock without the 4.5lb connector, I will put one in. All my Gen 4's came with it.

    More mags are a must. I did night sights on one Glock. All the rest are 100% stock

    Pearce +2 base plates on subcompact mags, extra 19/23 length mags with X grip sleeves, night sights, talon rubber grips.
    Tried the extended slide stop/release. My hands got tired during long range sessions and inadvertently engaged it three times. Took it off and gave it away.

    I have a G32 gen3 and a G33 gen3. They both got Glock night sights, minus connectors, Vickers magazine releases, and smooth triggers. On my G33 (a subcompact), I use a Pearce +0 magazine extension. Trigger assemblies are inspected and corrected if there is anything that is not as the designer intended.

    On my G27 I use TFO's and Pearce +0 extension so my little pinky has a place to live.

    On my G20 and G41, just a set of TFO's and lots of shooting
