Default Glock 23 Modifications

Hello, I've had my Glock 23 for several months now and have shot alittle over 1,000 rounds with it, it's a great gun and I'd like to know what some G23 users have done to modify it.

So far mine is stock but I'd like to see what kind of modifications I can buy for it ect..

Thanks!

My standard Glock setup-

Sights- your choice, mine are Warren tactical.
Vickers extended mag release
Smooth trigger face- for glocks with serrated triggers like the 26.

Everything else I leave factory.

On any major caliber Glock, I'd change barrels to a aftermarket type with a better supported chamber.

Other than that and nights, you really don't have to change anything.

Night sights and beveled the bottom edge of the magazine release (not needed unless you're left handed). That's it.

Mine: 3.5# connector with the NY-1 trigger spring. The trigger pull is still pretty close to stock, but has a very crisp reset. I also put a Hogue overgrip thing on it. It's otherwise bone stock. Perhaps one day I'll put night sights on it.

Depends on what you use it for, carry, competition, home defense, or plinking at a range? All have different missions.

I bought a Lone Wolf 40-9 conversion barrel and a G19 magazine for mine. I swap the barrel, insert and G19 magazine and shoot BOTH .40S&W and 9mm at the range. It's like 2 guns in one !

What did you use to color in your slide markings? I've been reading about users using crayons or nail polish, but I'm afraid to mess up my G23 in doing so.

Steel guide rod, night sights, talon grips, surefire e2d led defender to hold in your hand, and a whole lot of ammo (cus you can never have too much).
