I'm getting a Glock 19 Gen 4, and im deciding on some of the upgrades now. I'm getting a grip reduction first, then some others I'm thinking would be good would be. 33 round mag for the range, an extended slide release, trijicon night sights, a flash light, and a metal slide guide rod. Any advice on the upgrades on brand, good/bad experiences, and any upgrades you've done that you like/don't like.

There is an upgrade/modification that allows you to fire your Glock underwater

Why a grip reduction? The Gen 4 has 3 different back straps. I have a 33 round mag and it is fun to shoot. I would just get a flashlight to hold in your hand. The night sights would be a good upgrade.

I've shot them with the smallest grip, the hump at the bottom irritates me, and that's all the reduction removes

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

I dispatched 4 of them and luckily didnt spill my drink ,thankfully i still had the chance to get a nice tan that day. ;-)
I think you meant to say "didnt spill my drank"
