I have most of a Roland Special and it didn't cost me $2500. G17 MOS with RMR, Dawson Precision sights and a S3F threaded barrel. No KKM comp cuz I have an AAC can on it.

I doubt I'd get all the slide cuts and the compensator doesn't seem to do much. I have other priorities but I do see a tricked out stippled Glock in my future.

Have you tried the TLR's with lasers?
Did you rule out red dots?

My tritium is dim indoors now and the fiber optic is not that bright unless under direct sun. I also got the green front and yellow rear. Same brightness and color on glowing sights looks distracting as the rears are closer to your eyes.

Checking my Safariland holster, it won't fit wider sights

Just got this Gen3 G26 back from Damato's Custom Stippling. Awesome. I highly recommend his work. Fast turnaround and great work.

His products look...okay...but...I can't take anyone seriously if they employ "molon labe" in communication or naming convention. Maybe I am just not enough of a tactical operator...

I did the stippling on my pistol with a soldering iron and some YouTube videos. If you go slow and draw out your areas with pencil first it's really easy.

Making it look good is in the finishing. You need at least two different grit sand papers, a wooden dowel for the corners...

The point is I can't believe what some people charge for stippling and shaping these days. Plus if you do it yourself you can make it fit your hand perfectly.

I have a full house, custom G26 from Zev Technologies. Had the slide milled, then added every part they make for a G26, plus stippling and double undercut. Fiber optic front sight as well.

Added a KKM Precision threaded barrel myself, as Zev doesn't do them for a G26. Had one or two malfunctions after I added the barrel, but after 500 rounds or so break in, it's been flawless.

I used it during the entirety of our High Threat In-Service course, instead of an issue Sig or G19. With the G26, I shot perfect scores on every qual and finished as the runner up in a steel challenge.

I like it so much that I'm sending my G19 off for the full treatment, plus RMR.

Had both my G19 and G17 stippled, changed out the sights and mod the trigger with a 3.5 lb connector from zev for both. I added the magwells as well. No complaints here at all. I shoot USPSA with both and they shoot well. Both also have SilencerCo threaded barrels. These were all small mods with the barrels being the most expensive parts.

The only thing that keeps me from doing it with a G26 is the lack of light mounting options.

That is a good sign if folks feel they got their money's worth. I can't remember which board. Someone had posted SAI sent Glocks to a SMU and they were returned in pieces lol. Don't know if it is true or not?

I do like the more pronounced undercut of the trigger. About the only modification frame wise I could see doing to my Glocks.

Have been looking at Flat Trigger, one without reducing the trigger pull weight though. And need to get new front sight.

When I was shooting Glocks, I researched the shit out of flat triggers. This seemed like the only one that kept all the safety features intact and would pass any kind of drop test.

It shot nice but I switched to CZs a few months after getting it.

Yep, that is the one I have been looking at, as have read good reviews as well on it. And you like you said, still passed the drop/safety tests. Plus, I do have to admit, the gold trigger looks pretty cool. Looking at getting one for my Glock 21.

My brother is in the same agency as you, and he also prefers to shoot and carry his authorized backup gun, the G26, over his issue SIG. Though his is stock.

Sounds entirely plausible, however, also not necessarily indicative of an issue.

Many of the "high end" shops are performing metal work on factory slides which weakens the parts, or making their own in-house slides with a lot more "finishing" machine work than a stock slide. Not an issue for the casual shooter, or for a carry weapon that doesn't put a lot of rounds into the berm, but not good for rough handling or high round counts.

I'm a gun geek. I have "project" Glocks and carry Glocks. I don't put a lot of rounds through the project guns.

It wasn't inexpensive by any reasonable standard, but I'm still super happy with the results.
