    True, it can also facillitate mag drops at inopportune times....

The slide-lock on a Glock is only used when you're taking it apart...there's no need for an aftermarket part.

    I will have to agree with the above post, in regards that it is probably not worth the risk.......

    I'd already decided against installing that part once I figured out the trick in field stripping but it's a good thing to know there's a potential for malfunctions if I HAD installed it.

    I do plan on upgrading to a steel guide rod with Wolff springs (recoil and mags) and the TFO sights but I think that's about it so far.

    Unfortunately for us tinkerers, GLOCKs are best left stock -- the only advisable "upgrade" being sights (I prefer Big Dots), I'd recommend spending the money on those and more mags and ammo instead.....

    On the other hand, there are always the 1911's which lend themselves to "tinkering" quite well....

    Yup, I've got one of those too. Only problem is, I can't stop buying guns and leather long enough to afford to customize the thing ... if I ever hit the lottery I'll have a fully customized SA 1911 though - complete with light saber bayonet mount!

I did it because I like the look of hard chrome better than the black Glock slide.

    Man, I really like the look of that hard chromed slide. I still would like to do that to my Glock 23.

    Nice picture of it too.

    Agreed! leave the damn things the way Gaston designed them

    This thread and the link made me decide to put back the OEM slide release and mag release on my 27, 22 and 23. Did that this afternoon. I had the Glock slide release and mag release for the model 21 on them. I didn't have problems with function. The extended mag release was uncomfortable against my skin when wearing IWB.

    I'm sure my next few range visits will show improvement in grouping and POI.

    Ah, I see that you also went to the "DarkSide". --lol-- I had a G23c when I ran across the used G19. I still love my 1911s but there is a lot to be said for the Glock. It has to grow on you before you get really comfortable with it. I forced myself to put the 1911s in the safe and lock em down for two weeks without touching them. I like the G19 now a lot more than I did before I began to have it 24/7 on me. But in that two weeks, I had to go and put the EMP in layaway to take the pressure off of me. lol

    The trigger on this 19 feels much better than other Glocks I've fondled in the past. No spongey feel or stacking, it's got a smooth take up, crisp break and a short travel to reset with a "click" type feel.

    I think Darth Brommeland used his evil Sith powers to convert me, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
