    I want something for my G19 for starters.
    Not that I'm not willing to buy from upper echelon.

    Pays to L@@K. I just did. Is the polymer worth a hoot?

    Have you considered a little trigger work first?

    No. I've looked into it. Polishing that is. Just was never "sold" that it helped much.
    It's a Glock. I've learned to accept them in the raw without mods.

    I listen to suggestion and recommendations, well. :cool:

    Check out this guy's videos. I had a hard time imagining how to tear apart my Glock until I watched his videos #1 and #2. I don't know much about his store or rep, but as far as his ability to demonstrate in a patient way how to work over the Glock, I think he's great.

    After watching his vids, I've installed Ghost Connecters on our G42 and G43 which made a nice improvement to the trigger feel, and I've polished all of the trigger parts as well.

    I've looked into quite a lot about upgrades for them, then got distracted.
    The ghost connector (I thought) seemed, snake oil barring the replacement of maybe springs.

    However, what can you share with me any very noticeable personal gains? I'd love to shoot one that had the upgrades to help me commit.
    Not meaning to come over as sounding negative. I'm forced to reason with here say and trust in others.

    On my command, authority speaks, said the G19.
    I inquire the magwell for repetitious consistency, form factor, placement, and accuracy.

    I can appreciate your logic. I'd planned mag extensions if I did go the route of a magwell. They (the magwell) make sense for grip placement, however, somewhat moot. I use a grip sleeve. My grip placement is very consistent.

    Your grip should be dictated by placement of the web of your hand, not your pinky against a mag-well. Unless your building a "race-gun" for range competition, I'm not often keen on a bunch of "bolt-on doo-dads" for my Glock pistols, either... for above mentioned reasons.

    Change the sights to your choice of tritium night-sights (I like Trijicon), a "grip-plug" for the "back-strap" hole behind the mag-well, and an extended mag-release button if needed.


    LOL.... OK, that was of no help to the OP's question, but hopefully helps you decide whether or not to go forward with a mag-well.

    Appreciate you input none-the-less. Night sights have crossed my mind. I've got the Big Dots on a few. Thinking Trijicon on the 19 & 26

    I'm also with the sights and trigger in place of the mag well. Unless your building a comp gun. Then I'd say go for all 3.......That's my opinion, sorry no help

    I really, like the sleeve. Sliding has never been a problem.

    The night sights will happen. Trijicon GL101O
    The trigger, I would like to go assured it's the best for the price. My searching the topic leads me to believe the price is a waste of money as compared to a Ghost connector and a bit of polishing.

    Was pretty impressed with the Zev products. They make quite a few different sized Mag wells. Geisselle also makes a mag well, and so does Raven Concealment.

    They have their place .... IPSC
    But for edc, TT makes a smaller unit. Not as big as their CEREAL BOWL sized competition unit.
    LOL

    The GL-101O is what I have on mine and the wife's Glocks. My eye picks out the orange dot really quick in daylight.


    The TrijiconHD are the best IMHO. You can easily rack the slide using the rear sight on the edge of something if you find yourself one handed for some reason.

    I have found them (full front/rear set) on eBay for as low as $100 NIB

    Ameriglo Pro I-Dots give you the awesome Trijicon orange front sight, but drops the 3-dot busy-ness. I really like the simple dot-the-i. In this case, I think you'd call it a figure-8.

    Beat me to it fxdc,

    Hmm, what was the subject?
    I forgot long ago.



    I think three replies were on topic.
    All commentary, good, but, hesus.

    Seems to be the norm around here.
