Changing sights is not a problem.
Any well-known ammo manufacturer is fine.

Pistol modifications are something a little different. I've chosen to upgrade my trigger connector to the 3.5-lb Lone Wolf and a stronger trigger spring.

However, if a prosecutor were to question me about why I chose a trigger labeled "for competition only" I'd be very nervous about that line of questioning.

Just my little, humble opinion.
The reality is a good shoot is a good shoot. The competition only triggers can become an issue in a questionable shoot or accidental shoot. If I intended to put a round or 6 into a goblin, so be it. It really does not matter how heavy the trigger is.

I have been told that if a 3.5 or lower trigger is used during self defense that its not illegal but the prosecution will have an easier time arguing malicious intent. That being said ghost makes a ranger tactical 4LBer I have installed in my g17. My trigger pull was tested at just under 4 1/2, for me the pull wasn't my issue I just desired a smoother travel which my smith was able to provide.

It's always been my thought process that when I go to court for taking a life the prosecuting attorney will use ANYTHING he possibly can to make me look like a blood thirsty gun nut who gunned down the poor downtrodden criminal who was in my home. I leave my carry and self defense weapons alone. I chose Glock for both because they are NEARLY perfect out of the box. I don't know maybe I'm just being paranoid I just don't want to go to jail or owe some POS family 5 million dollars for killing him.

People say you will get sued for everything. I am not saying do it, or don't do it. But it is like the carrying handloads thing. Does anyboy know of a single lawsuit for carrying a modified gun, or handloads for that matter. No hearsay, but that you actually know of. Not talking about what Bubba's girlfriend's, cousin's, dad told you.

Well I just got the kit in. I only installed the connector, I'm satisfied
The muzzle movement is almost completely eliminated. I'll save the springs for competition.

I'm definitely not saying there has been any precedent set to justify my paranoia, I'm just saying I'm not comfortable handing the prosecutor any ammunition to use against me.

Sweet! I bought the ghost kit myself and installed it in my gen 4 glock 23. I polished everything and its smooth as butter. Personally, I don't subscribe to the thought process that you have to have heavy triggers for carry. If you carry properly, and train, then you don have any issues.
