Glock 19/17 Accuracy Enhancement Quuestion

I want to hear from guys who have tricked out their Glocks to make them match grade guns. What changes have you made and what sort of equipment have you installed? Pictures of modified Glocks are welcome.

How to improve on PERFECTION????
I have used aftermarket barrels on a G23 that improved accuracy a bit. Not sure I would put a Glock in a match group, they are more like a work horse. It's also the gun I reach for daily, over the Sigs, HK's, Berettas, etc....

When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away!!
Carry ON!!

Get a Lone Wolf or Schumann barrel. Just don't let the gun get too dirty, the tolerances will be much tighter than factory Glock and will not function properly under the same conditions that most subject their OEM Glocks to.

A Match Grade Slide Lock is a fairly inexpensive and very easy to install accuracy upgrade for the Glock pistols (except the 36).

I haven't done careful testing to verify the manufacturer claims but there do seem to be some satisfied customers out there.
Did you know that there is a TEXAS State Rifle Association?

if you want a match grade pistol, get a 1911.

I like all sorts of handguns (S&W revolvers, 1911s, Glocks, etc), but since the 80s I've found that by far the coolest and most effective tricked-out tactical equipment for my Glocks to make them really accurate has been the following:

1. My hand - as often as possible.

2. Ammo - as much as I can afford

3. More ammo -

Just my .02 worth, but this has worked best for me.

Trade in your Glock for an M&P and that's all the accuracy enhancement you need.
