I'll start..
Semi-competition rig. Started with a used g22 LEO trade in purchased at a great price... Had some finish wear and minor dents/dings on the grip. Great place to start.

After..

Added/changed:
3.5 ghost, extended slide/mag releases.
Flared magwell
Stipple job on grip and index points
Fiber optic sights

She shoots great! Fun range gun.

Now g19 just got night sights and a talon grip. Will add light later.

I got the tool for cleaning mags.

Can't think of anything else it needs other than range time.

owned it for 20 years. Used in in several classes. Shot several thousand .40 rounds with no failures. Changed the recoil spring once. Wore the finish off and have pits on the muzzle end of the slide. Put wheel bearing grease on the pits to keep the rust in check.

Agree with not much "needed" if anything on a glock. This one was an extra for a project so I figured why not. :)

I may invest in a lone wolf barrel for converting the 22 to 9mm and being able to shoot reloaded cast bullets but thats about it for now.

G-19

1. Had Trijicon three-dot night sights added (at the same gun show where the gun was purchased. Dealer was out of night-sight models.

2. Lone Wolf threaded barrel for future suppressor/ cast lead bullet use.

That's it.

Thought about doing the 3.5# Ghost trigger, but this is a carry piece, and I didn't shoot any better with my buddy's G-17 that had the Ghost.

Changed all of my 40SW's over to 357Sig and added night sights, about it.
Used LW barrels on the conversions, more accurate than I am any more.:wink:

Shot a bunch of bullets thru it. Cleaned it a couple of times when I couldn't stand looking at it anymore. That is all other than knocking the rear sight over a smudge.

Storm Lake makes a better barrel. Change the ejector and extractor and you'll have a fine piece.

I've concluded that while a pistol might not need one of these, there is no reason not to have it. It's definitely the future:

For my 34 I got a 17 upper and an Advantage Arms .22 conversion upper. For the 19 I got an attached belt clip so no holster required.

Your gun looks good...

Personally I really like the stippling, for me the improvement in grip is worth the investment especially on the G21.
Still plan on swapping out the sights on mine then I'm done...

On two police trade in Glocks I've purchased the only thin I did to them was change the barrel to a Wolff barrel and put skater tape on the grip because it felt a little to slick to me. They work 100% and are some of the best buys out there for a quality handgun. Unfortuneatly for me I have to pay around 300 or so for the pistol and then 110 for the Wolff barrel so that puts me close to what I pay for a new Glock.

All the Glocks I had were old. Sold them all around 1997.

I'm happy with the XD.

I guess so..... :shades:

Although I have seen some done with Wood Burners or Soldering irons that looked like shit the job ZEV does is very well done and adds a much more aggressive grip I actually like quite well..

If someone is like me and doesn't like slip on grips or skateboard tape this is the best option.

I have only Gen4 pistols now.

With a new pistol... I check to make sure the RSA is up to date. I replace mag release and slide releases with Vickers hardware. Night sights added; 50yd zero, green front, orange rear. Pearce frame plug added, mostly for reloads. Swap to a "minus" connector and polish job.

There are some really nice grip options out there if you don't like stippling. Talon Grips, Operator Grips, AGrip, etc. In my experience a full, aggressive grip stippling isn't comfortable or as compatible in concealed carry.

Went from the box to this...

This slide, optic, threaded barrel and muzzle brake weighs 1 oz less than the factory slide and barrel.

Its very, very fast and flat shooting. Not as fast as some of the 2011's though.

Best custom race Glock I've ever seen. Kind of like a shaved/slammed/chopped hot rod when compared to the import bolt-on, glue-on, mill-everywhere look of the Others.

Since I picked a G21 up on a impulse purchase- and I rarely trade anymore, I have a plan to replace the barrel so lead swc can be safely fired. Maybe a stronger mainspring to better shoot my reloads. IF I do keep this pistol as a general carry over my BHP, it WILL have a positive thumb safety installed- don't care about the blahblahblah that Glock has several safeties. It does NOT, pull the trigger and find out!
