Modded Glock

Anyone shoot a modded G35? I'm picking up my gen 4 next week and I'd like to mod it as a range gun and to possibly get into competition shooting. I'm having trouble picking which trigger kit, I know I need to get my hands on all of them and see what I like but I don't know if that'll be possible.

I'm thinking the Glocktriggers Vogel trigger kit, with jager lightened striker, and warren tactical sevigny competition sights.

I'm going back and forth between the ghost 3.5 trigger with .25 job
vogel trigger kit
fulcrum ultimate trigger kit
vanek kit

Anyone knowledgeable on glocks?

Most people take out the lighter trigger, so do that I did and polish the factory one. It will make it a much cleaner pull. After that, shoot it. Sights are a prefrence, but plenty of people think that a polished trigger is enough to make the weapon perfect. What are you using this weapon for?

you want a light trigger pull for a comp gun... 2-3lb pull with a short throw and reset. Carry gun is different. I'll post back results when I figure out what I'm going to go with

I would love a $2500 1911 but the fact that I can get glocks at LE pricing makes it well worth it. Kinda like lapping someone on a liter bike when you're on an SV

I agree, but for what I intend to use the gun for (shooting steel) it beats 9mm and it's cheaper/less recoil then .45. Trying to convince the wife to get a subcompact in 40 or 45 so I can get rid of the 9mm. Plus, 9mm ammo out here is like finding 5.56

Clearly you've never fired 147gr 9mm - it works for competitive steel shooters.

clearly you aren't a competitive shooter. Not to mention a new Glock 34 would have cost me $700 out here, I bought my 35 brand new from the shop for $499. That's $200 to a trigger kit, lightened striker, and aftermarket sites. I'll take it. Especially since 9mm is impossible to find and .40 is only a few cents more expensive and more available.

Are you doubting a 147gr 9mm's capability, when it comes to dropping steel poppers?

What form of competition are you participating in? USPSA, IDPA?

Yeah, I can see that .40 is more available. I'll give you that.

I reload, so it makes no matter to me. For reloaders, 9mm is cheaper and more readily available.

You may qualify for a discount through Glock. Look into it and see if you qualify.

Re: Modded Glock

Nick your gonna want to reload your rounds anyway for comp shooting. Im not a fan of 40cal always have to stiff arm. Ive been working with some people for steel challenge at ASC and have no problem with my 9 @ all. Actually most are using a 9 or 45. They are lowering their powder count anyway for less recoil

The guy I've been training with competes every weekend with a .40. I may get a G34 down the road but for right now the G35 is where it's at for me. I don't have any issues with my G30, I'm sure the 35 will be fine. Put 8 rounds in the same hole the other day with stock plastic sites on my G30 from 10 yards. I'm not saying 9mm won't do it, but .40 works fine in my situation. Especially because I can sell the G35 for what I paid for it or more down the road and pick up a G34 if I want when the panic dies down.

Check out

http://www.nevesuniforms.com/vendorp...p?vendor=Glock

I'm not sure if they do internet sales but it's probably the best price you'll find if you qualify. I'll pick up a G34 when ever they get them back in stock (I got their last G30SF and G35). They estimated maybe april for new supply, maybe never.

Edit: Sorry just read website says local sales only.

Check out Zev Tech. I checked out several Glock triggers at the Show Show and liked theirs the most.
