    You call those mods? You didn't even include any lasers ;)

    (soybomb doesn't have any glocks but I predict you will get crap for the grip plug and spring buffer for sure).

    Ditch the extended slide catch, grip plug and recoil buffer.

    Unless you're hand-loading I'd stick with the stock striker spring and go with a heavier recoil spring.

    It's a GLOCK. Shoot it as is :mad:. Don't mess with perfection. That said my G30 is on me right now.

    Of that entire list, all you really needed was the disconnector. And you missed one of the more important upgrades... sights.

    Grip plug and factory extended controls are nice, but not necessary. And recoil springs are only really beneficial if shooting handloads.

    Return the rest of that stuff and get yourself BladeTech or Uncle Mikes holster, dual mag pouches and AMMO, lots of it.

    i thought the lowed lb recoil springs would let it cycle faster, sights are next this is just the preliminary stuff

    yeah, but at what load? Before you start swapping out springs, you have to understand what your current load data is out of that set up. So that is why I thought it was a poor choice for "prelimary" mods.

    Springs are cheap, you don't necessarily have to return them, I would suggest getting acquainted with your stock set up before making any big changes to the cycle characteristics of your gun. Makes it easier to troubleshoot later on down the road.

    Glocks are wonderful guns built on a solid reputation of reliability. Once you start drifting from OEM spec is when you can expect for that reliabilty to also drift losing it's big selling factor of reliability.

    My glocks I have lightly and heavily modified for competitive shooting have made them all eratically unreliable at times.
