Tricking out the G40

<< < (2/2)

Davew223:
These sights are not listed for the G40 but I bet they will fit.  https://www.midwayusa.com/product/692967/warren-tactical-sight-set-glock-17-19-22-23-24-34-35-sevigny-competition-rear-fiber-optic-front-steel-matte  I have used them for comp shooting for years and love them.  If you look up their namesake things get clear quickly.  For the trigger, 25 cent trigger job on you tube makes a big difference.  Any other trigger work and you could be hurting yourself if you had to use it for a bump in the night.  For the barrel, are you going to shoot lead?  If not the stock Glock barrels are actually very accurate. 

If I were to trick out this pistol, the first thing I would buy after the sights would be either:  http://www.dillonprecision.com/xl650_8_1_23803.html  or whatever Carl recommends for progressive reloading.  For high quantity loading, he is the man.

Why would it be funny? Looks like a serious concept to me. Then again, I consider red dots and compensators to be viable options for carry and defensive guns.

Carl:
  Don't let too many curb feelers interfere with the 'out of the box' capability of the G40 ...night sites and plenty of practice ammo till you can shoot it by instinct rather than depend in sighting equipment. Later maybe a spare parts kit and a 357 Sig barrel and recoil spring kit .

Agree.  You should shoot it a lot before adding geegaws.  My main home pistol is a G23 with Ameriglo night sights and a Streamlight TLR1 light.  I like the Ameriglo or Trijicon night sights that have a orange front blade along with the tritium front and rear. I shoot this almost every range session.  A smoother trigger would be nice but for me not as important as more and more range time with it (ammo).

Being over 60 I am thinking more about an RMR as the front blade is getting more fuzzy every year.  Under 50 I don't know that an RMR would be worth it.  But over 60 it may become imperative.  I can still hit well at 25 yds but I am slower on target.  The magwell seems only useful if your are in timed competitions.  Have you shot it a lot with mag changes and actually found any difficulty?
