Default Glock triggers...

One can change out the triggers or just take out of the gun and file or sand smooth and replace.

Do a .25 cent trigger job. That helps.

Get a (-) connector and that helps.

I like TFO Nightsights.

Good to go!

BT Guiderod for the 30SF is the only modification I've made. It works great and I never have to worry about it chipping or breaking.

I only do it after a lot of rounds through the factory RS. Usually after 5k rounds...I do all the springs with Wolff Springs and then I swap the rcoil spring guide as more of a routine or administrative function. I have never had a failure...so I don't worry about it.

That's just me.

Glock got it all right the first time. I've changed nothing on all 6 of my Glocks. There is simply no need to. Bill T.

i hear you on that . but i`d rather have a steel guiderod rather then plastic. theres alot of heat comming out the slide and barrel . so (imo)i`d rather have a steel rod rather then plastic rod . just incase something did happen because heat does cause plastic to melt
