If it's Glock, keep it stock*
*Except add some night sights.

How's everyone doing? Was trying numerous holsters with my g17 and finally found one that I love to use to conceal carry my g17. Grant it I know it is not the best ccw due to the size but sometimes I like to change it up. Typically I carry my ruger sr9c at my hip and sig p238 in my pocket.
Anyways, back on topic, I started researching good mods for glocks that are used for ccw / home defense and was wondering what all of your opinions were. From what I have found, I heard people recommending cutting down the grip to a g19 size making it better for concealing purposes, changing the connector and getting a trigger job. As I said though, I take what everyone says on this forum heavily and would appreciate your insight. Thank you!

I add the extended slide catch. Makes it easier to lock the slide back with my little girl hands. Oh and night sights and a light for HD duty.

I'd say the grip chop and night sights would be worthwhile. Maybe undercut the trigger guard if you want. I wouldn't mess with the connector, but that's just me.

I'm stickin' with "keep it stock"...plus night sights.

I have considered the grip chop. For now I am carrying my 19 mostly. That said I have returned my 17 and my 19 to stock except sights. I had Ghost connectors but my 19 would double tap unintentionally and I wasnt comfortable with it so I replaced the Ghost with stock.
G17 g4 with tru glow sights, is the only glock I have and I have learned to make do with what I got.

nights sights first, IMO.
then i prefer to replace the stock trigger return spring with the New York-1 spring, AND replace the stock 5 pound connector with the Glock 3.5 pound competition connector. this eliminates the most break-prone part on a Glock (the spring, IMO), and results in a trigger pull in the 5-6 pound range, with resistance through the entire stroke (replacing the 'light pull, then stack' of the stock set-up.)
i have no strong objections to the stock trigger set-up. i just prefer to set it up as i described.

Considering what you'd spend on a grip mod, why not just buy a G19? You'll preserve the resale value of your current gun, plus you'll end up with a second gun. For defensive uses, even for some of the action games, there is little lost with the shorter barrel and sighting radius of the compact model. Frankly, unless you've got a safe full of Glocks and you just want to customize one to make it stand out from the pack, I don't thinks it's money well-spent.
