    Jonny has a new Glock, 26 that is!!!

    Just got my brand new 26 the other day and boy does it shoot like a dream and carying it is dream!!!

    Had night sights put on it and had the trigger spring changed to New York 8lb. I'm carrying it inside the waist and I feel a little more comfortable with that extra pounds of pull. I know what you thinking " boy just don't put your finger on that there trigger unless your ready to shoot and you'll be ok". But I'm moving over from semi's with manual safetys and I'll just don't want to loss anything dear to me:p


    So guys, besides the the things I have already done to it, what else is there to customizing it


    thanks

    Glock 26

    If I owned a Glock 26 I would place an aftermarket barrel in it so I could shoot lead, replace the plastic guiderod and spring with a Wolff steel guiderod and spring, place MMC adjustable sights (amber tritium) on the rear and a Trijicon (green) on the front. I would then change the mag springs to Wolff (+10%) and put a Pearce boot grip extender on the magazine. Find as many Glock 17and19 Hi-caps because they work like a charm in the Glock 26...Fine weapon...

    Thanks Jesse,


    If I went with a steel guiderod what poundage should I go with in the spring.

    Thanks

    It comes in a kit together... Call Wolff and ask for Gretchen, she can help. If you want to skip the kit and want the complete setup go with the Nowlin or Firedragon buffer sold in Brownells. They work well. You did a good thing going with the "New York" trigger. Who installed it and do you know the color of the leaf spring?

    You're cool... I just wanted to ask because a lot of guys get the Alchemy Arms trigger and call it a "New York" trigger. The coil spring in a standard Glock trigger is the part most likely to fail if anything . The "New York" option is a smart move because it incorperates the use of a leaf spring and a coil spring.
    You've made a sound choice in a handgun...I commend you.
