I agree that stuff is nuts.

viewtopic.php?f=20&t=5337

This is why I left the HK Facebook group and the M&P group and the Sig group. That type of crap is showing up in the Glock group but just not as often. A Glock isn't a typical pimp-gun; a Glock is a combat gun and pimping it out for no conceivable tangible advantage seems silly.


I see it on glocks all the time. Between Zev, Agency Arms, and many others. its rare that i encounter someone that does not put at least $50 worth of aftermarket upgrades on a glock. this does not count night sights but might soon as i'm moving to the camp of were they serve no tangible defensive purpose.

i really dont care if you have your defensive tool sent off to have work done, its all personal preference.

I'm not following you, here. You don't believe that night sights serve any tangible purpose? I think night sights should be standard on any defensive weapon. The next time you wake up in the middle of the night to go piss, acquire a sight picture in a pre-determined safe direction while your eyes are still fully dilated. Were you to be awakened in the middle of the night by the Proverbial burglar in your bedroom, night sights are gold. I know many who train at night, Hell I train at night, but that doesn't fully dilate your eyes like when you've been asleep and night training won't prepare you for taking that shot with fully dilated eyes. For a nightstand gun, I must have night sights or a laser.

Grip reduction and stippling are worth while additions for many.

Good steel night sights are legit.

I'm a a fan of the polished 3.5 connector.

All that slide stuff is bullshit
