MAGAZINES

MORE MAGAZINE CAPACITY


Glock 17 Mag. Capacity
Standard: 17
OPTIONAL Mags.
19 / 33

Suggestion: Buy at least three 17 round standard magazines. One to keep in the gun with defensive ammo and two backups loaded with cheaper target ammo. You might also want to have 3 spare magazine springs on hand, just in case.


GUN SIGHTS

BETTER GUN SIGHTS

A wide variety of pistol sights are available. The best one is determined by your eyesight, style of shooting, proficiency and personal preference. Suggestions: If you point shoot you don't need change the sights. The factory sights are just fine. Over half the people I meet at the range have changed the factory sights with night sights. If you have bad eyesight or don't like regular guns sights you might want to try Red-Dot Sights.




TRIGGER PULL

IMPROVE TRIGGER PULL

If you want a smoother trigger pull and are not afraid to take your pistol apart, try a Trigger Job and changing out the factor connector to a 3.5 lb. Connector.

Suggestions: Replacing the connector in your pistol makes a big difference in the feel and pull of the trigger. About half the people that I met at the range with Glocks have replaced their connectors with 3.5 lb. Connectors.
