    Glock mods on carry pistol

    Short and to the point. I EDC a G26. I have been entertaining the idea of adding a extended slide release and 3.5lb trigger connector. What do you think?

    For EDC, I would recommend leaving the trigger stock. Slide release is ok if that is what you want.

    +1, trigger mods can lead to the argument of intent, should you need it.

    I've got the gap floor plates on both of my mags. Think I am ok with those?

    Yeah, they do not affect the action of firing. Cosmetic things, espacially those less noticed like the floor plates are fine, but then there is also the school of thought regarding flash... If you make the gun too flashy, you are just looking for an excuse to use it, or something like that. I don't buy into that, but as far as the triggerpull, I would avoid modding it for personal defense.

    I have the extended slide release on my G27 and love it. I'm within about a 45 minute drive to Smyrna Ga. and recently took my new G19 to have night sights and an extended slide release installed. I'm still kicking myself for forgetting to ask for the extended slide release. :(

    I have the 3.5 and the NY trigger spring. Maybe slightly heavier than stock adn bomb proof.

    I took the extended slide release off as I was riding the release and not getting lock back. I am not sure why I even put it on because I have no issues hitting the stock one.

    Other than the trigger spring everything I do to my 19 I end up putting back to stock. Gaston got it pretty right.

    Have yet to do so, however, my statement came from a conversation that I had with a LEO. I know what you are going to say, "that doesn't mean anything", "they are all talk", "they don't know what they are talking about"...

    My reply... do what you want. Personally, I do not have an issue with my stock trigger pull for personal defense. If I come to a point in my life where I am participating in competition, then, I may modify trigger pull on A gun that I own, however, it will not be my primary defense gun.

    While not Glocks, my edc's have always been modified and had lighter than stock triggers. With that said the modifications were for reliability, done by professionals and the lighter triggers were merely a byproduct.

    Against popular opinion, many LEOs are pretty well informed and experienced w/ firearms and the legal use of them. Especially us firearms instructors.

    To the OP, I would leave it stock. An extended slide stop may be inadvertantly hit while firing which may cause lock back on a mag that still has rounds in it.

    The only time I use my slide stop is to keep the slide to the rear.

    Glock 30:

    I added an extended slide release and a Brownell's Ghost 3.5# trigger connector.

    For my hand size (small), the new slide release was effective in giving me leverage to drop a magazine for a fast reload.

    The Ghost trigger connector made a lot of difference. This is not a hair trigger--but for me it eliminated gun movement during a first pull and feels more precise. The feel was reviewed with approval by a friend, a federal agent gun instructor used to heavier triggers, too.

    Glad I did it. Like housepaint, it isn't a permanent change, and it's not expensive to switch back if you want.
