Just found this group and I have a few questions about mods on my daily carry ( usually a Glock 27 or 23) I thought I would join in and see what I could learn. Am thinking about changing out the trigger spring or installing a lighter connector. Trying to make the trigger a little crisper and lighter on one of my weapons that I not only carry, but also use for action pistol shooting. Can anyone direct me to a forum topic that deals with the above, or relay what are the pro's and con's are for such changes? I don't want to compromise the safety on my daily carry, but need to improve the performance in competition. (I can only beat the local trooper by about 2/10 sec. and I've just got to increase that margin
And as an introduction, I am a professional hunter in Alaska. (Master Guide) I don't cross the street without my sleeping bag and a firearm. In the bush I've carried a .44 Ruger (or Smith 29) for some 40 years, (after all, it was the largest handgun available back in the 70ís) but I find thatís a bit cumbersome in town In civilized company and topography I leave the .44 at home and one of my Glocks usually goes out the door. (23 or 27)
Depending on the dress code, occasionally I forsake the Glock in favor of a Colt Mustang Pocketlite or a little stainless Lady Smith wheel gun. Now I have never had to use the city weapons in self defense, and many folks now prefer the thunder and roar of 457ís and larger wheel guns in the country, but I have left enough blood on the arctic snow to convince me that a trusty .44 Rem Mag is indeed enough gun when times call for a friend in a hurry. I will also admit that sometimes it sure can seem small.
So, in closing, sure would appreaciate it if some of you gals and guys could direct me to some wisdom in modifying my 27.
