So hypothetically if I wanted to change a glock gen 3 into a gen 4 BUT just for the recoil benefits (however minor) . Would this be just changing to a gen 4 slide spring or is there a bit more to it?
Dont get me wrong, as a veteran I love me a 1911 but that would be something attached to my Plate carrier not something I edc. Im grabbing a 10 mm for edc just for multi purpose of the rounds. Plus have roughly 7 to 10 bullets is a compromise for me. Im not a bad shot and 7 will do in most defensive situations but if I ever need to draw multiple targets ( Although rare, we are talking hypothetical) in a high stress environment I want more than 7 rounds. A 1911 for me is something that goes hand in hand when you have a rifle on you. Just my two cents.Converting a Glock Gen 3 to a Gen 4.
- Take your Gen 3, put it in a ziplock baggie, then vacuum seal it in with your (or your friend's) sealing machine with a couple loaded mags. Bury it in the yard.
- Go buy a good 1911. There are many solid brands out there.
When SHTF, you won't GAF about what generation your Glock is. You'll praise God that you buried it.
