    Best G30 Upgrades

    A couple months ago I picked up a used G30 (new glocks are banned in MA, so I was happy to finally find a legal, pre-ban one).

    The first things I bought for it was a Sidearmor, kydex IWB holster and an extra mag holder (I love both). Next I ordered a Firedragon barrel from TopGlock (on backorder). When the new barrel comes, I'm going to add night sights.

    I was wondering what other accessories people really liked? This is a combat/carry pistol - no competition stuff.

    I was looking at Agrip (vs decal grip) - do people like these overlays?
    I was also considering a grip extention and maybe a plug?

    Anything else that will really upgrade my pistol?

    Thanks!

    I like my Glocks stock.

    Although, I'll admit that when I damaged my front sight on one of them, I replaced it with a steel sight.

    Not really an upgrade, more of an accesory - use the 9 round mag vs the 10 round one (butt of gun prints less/no print at all), and a G21 13 round mag as a reload/spare.

    Mass-Diver, for night sights, consider the Tru-Glo TFO. They are tritium for night shooting and fiber optic for daylight, the best of both worlds.

    I special ordered mine from Cabelas, getting yellow rear/green front dots.

    Here's what they look like: http://www.truglo.com/content/prod_h...iber_optic.asp

    Especially for a CCW. I might add night sights. I might suggest a good belt to go along with your holster. Otherwise I leave mine the way Gaston sent them from the factory.

    I got a G34 mag release on my G26 to aid in mag changes (sticks out just a bit, but isn't an "extended" one) other than that I got ameriglo night sights (a steal at $45 off ebay) and called it good.

    G-30

    New Barrel (FireDragon) came yesterday. Dropped it in, went down to the range and put 100 rounds of lead through it with no apprent problem.

    I'm still thinking about the AGrips though?

    Lots of people seem to like the Agrips, I have never tried them. What does that barrel give you over the stock one?

    I can put reloads through it. I shoot quite a bit, so reloads are a must for me.

    Very cool. I guess it allows you to shoot lead bullets then since the rifling in regular Glock bbls won't allow it?

    Exactly, it's supposed to be more accurate as well and just plain a really nice barrel, but the reason I got it was to shoot lead.

    The FireDragon Barrels (in general) are extremely high quality barrels

    I'd add en extended slide release if you don't already have one.
