    My 19 has a vickers mag release and a 4.5lb factory connector (and sights). Wifes has a gw spring kit and I think a connector.

    I'd be most concerned about the various spring rates than anything else.

    I wouldn't carry a Glock with a light striker spring period.

    My regular carry Glock 19 is OEM save for the sights. I have on rare occasion carried my production legal Glock 17 game gun which has a Vanek CTK, but runs a stock striker & spring.

    To be able to push the gun up against an attacker without possibly pushing the slide out of battery.

    what you do or don't do to a carry gun is a very personal decision. You have to test and evaluate regardless if it's completely stock or heavily modified. My personal belief is if it makes the gun more pleasant to shoot your going to practice more. Good practice and training are much more important than the equipment. After all the gun is just a tool and the shooter is the real weapon. I'm a little different in that I shoot my competition guns much more than anything else. So it makes sense for me to make my defensive guns handle as much like my competition guns as reasonable.

    Trigger pull weight is not a big factor for me so the connector and springs are nice but not a must. I'm more worried about trigger reset and the way the trigger breaks. The way the gun behaves in recoil. So a modfied trigger bar, and proper weight recoil spring are my must haves. I also want really good sights and extended controls (factory ext mag release and ext slide release lever.) I also like a pretty aggressive grip reduction.

    Of course working for glockworx I have the full fulcrum ultimate package and all the bells and whistles. My carry gun is also a demo gun for potential customers.

    I'll be carrying my G27 with a lone wolf .357sig barrel as soon as my ammo shows up.

    Whatever you feel comfortable with. You have no idea how many people tell me how dangerous it is to carry my EMP cocked and locked (i open carry at work).

    I have an extended mag release, and would probably put an extended slide release on it if I used the damn thing. Other than that I leave it alone, I especially wouldn't get any trigger mods done.
