    Question Glock Internal Parts..

    As I've been looking into purchasing a Glock 23 I have come across alot of different internal parts that you can change out this kind of surprised me at first as I didn't know you can customize the Glock so extensively. Now I'm curious to the Glock owners out there have you ever tweaked with the internals in you're Glock? & if so can you explain the differences in the performance of the Glock? as to when it had standard internals vs. the upgraded internal parts.

    I have never touched anything on my Glocks, other than sights. Never felt the need. They are (except for sights, as mentioned) completely stock.

    Oh no...!!!

    Glock is now going the way of the 1911 with a cottage industry competing to provide all manner of "must have" parts for us to buy and install.

    It was bound to happen sooner or later.

    There goes the vaunted Glock reliability.

    You don't need to upgrade internal parts on your Glock. If you want to do something to it polish the trigger bar and connector. That won't cost a thing and it can result in a smoother trigger pull. Suit yourself but I wouldn't start tacking unnecessary aftermarket stuff on your Glock.

    I haven't changed anything on either of the Glocks I own/owned (22, 26, 27). I'm thinking about getting Truglo TFOs put on my 26 since it is my primary carry gun, if I get a 34 eventually I will probably change things as I would use it for competitions.

    You are correct, there is a metric butt load of aftermarket vendors and products out there for Glocks.

    Leave the Glock...stock, except for night sights and/or a light.

    Oh, sure. Before you even fire it, new from the factory, send it to a gunsmith and have the entire gun re-worked just to make it function properly. That's just standard procedure... oh, wait a minute... I thought you said "1911"...

    Sorry, just leave your GLOCK stock. It will work just fine.

    The only thing I do to a Glock is install night sights and a NY trigger (8#).
    No internal lock or magazine disconnect on my pistols!

    Never alter the Glock. Except for night sights, even the stock sights are very usable

    Agreed.....the only thing I "customize" on a Glock are the addition of night sights. Some folks want to slap aftermarket gizmo's and junk on their Austrian plastic but all you will get is problems with no increase in performance.

    Isn't that like adding salt and pepper to your food without tasting it first?

    I swapped out the crappy serrated G23 trigger with a smooth G22 trigger and installed an extended slide release.

    I "oranged" the stock sights and replaced the slide stop with the extended version. Nothing else needed to be changed.

    I cleaned mine, then fired it a bunch of times, and then cleaned it again, and repeated this process several times. That's all I thought it needed.
