02-sightpictureA highly visible sight picture, with good light bars on either side of the front blade when it’s centered in the rear notch, is a great aid to fast and accurate shooting.

03-two-guide-rodsGen-4 Glocks feature a recoil system consisting of two guide rods, and two springs, reciprocating within and around each other. (bottom) Jager sells an aftermarket guide rod allowing a single strand recoil spring to be installed in a Gen-4. (top) The spring shown is an ISMI 13-pounder.

07-stormlakeThomas’ Glock 17 has had the stock barrel replaced with a stainless aftermarket barrel from Stormlake.

08-tango-downThe Vickers Tactical magazine release button from Tango Down protrudes slightly further than a stock unit.

09-mag-button-springOne trick to make the Glock magazine release button easier to depress is to slightly bend its spring. Stock (left), reworked (right).
