You need accessories for your Glock pistol but don’t know which are the best for your needs? There are several options that can be pretty difficult to pick.
You’re in the right place! We’ve put together this guide to help you find simple accessories upgrades that will positively impact your Glock handgun’s performance.
Here are accessories that make the most improvement and don’t cost much.
Glock Accessories: Pistol Sight Upgrades
Except you buy a Glock handgun with factory night sights or with one of the unique distributor upgrade packages (such as Vickers or Talo), you should first replace your sights.
Plastic sights aren’t the best choice for handguns. With that being said, Glock sights work, but you can break them, bend them, and even melt them through hard use.
Most people have their preferences for sights, but these are my favorites.
Zev Technologies fiber optic sight sets are a less expensive accessory a Glock owner can add to their handgun. The fiber optic sight sets can be easily acquired and have the highest resolution.
Its higher visibility will allow you to keep your sights on your target. Compared to a factory Glock sight set, the Zev Technologies Sight set will significantly enhance your shots on target.
It has a notch width of .140 and a notch depth of .145 to give you enough room to keep your eyes on your target during transitions. Zev’s fiber-optic sight sets are assembled and machined from quality billet equipment and manufactured to last.
Zev Technologies parts always combine design, feel and performance.
Trijicon HD Tritium Night Glock Sight Sets
The HD Night Sights were mainly designed to solve the needs of tactical shooters. The three-dot green tritium night sight set front sight has a taller blade and an aiming point ringed in photoluminescent paint.
While the rear sight is designed in black and has a wider U-shaped notch, this particular configuration enhances visibility and hastens front sight acquisition, even in transitional lighting.
In addition, the front surface of the rear sight is steeply hooked to help in emergency one-handed slide operation.
The HD Tritium Night Sight is created to shine, even in the most demanding situations. Green tritium lamps have a 12-year warranty from the date of manufacture.
Glock Parts: Trigger Upgrades
Let’s show some love to the G trigger!
Okay, I don’t think you need to do anything to a Glock trigger; they work well. But, they can be significantly enhanced without much expense or effort, so why not? You can get by, by polishing the trigger bar and upgrading the connector.
For polishing your trigger bar, FLITZ works like magic.
FLITZ Liquid Gun Polish
A diluted form of FLITZ’s original paste formula is a high-performance cleaner and polished liquid form.
Particularly formulated to clean and polish with ease and economy of a liquid, this concentrated formula works three times farther than other liquids. It leaves an incredible shine most of the time.
Another simple Glock part of upgrading is the factory connector to give you a better trigger feel, which leads to a better trigger discipline resulting in good accuracy.
Ghost - Edge 3.5 Trigger Connector
Like many others, the Edge gives a lighter-than-stock and smoother-than-stock trigger; however, it provides a cleaner-than-others feel by removing the previous resistance felt when the trigger bar comes in contact with the connector.
Ghost - EVO Elite Connector
According to Ghost, the EVO Elite is the best self-defense trigger control connector that they have ever produced. It does everything the Edge does while also reducing over-travel. It works great, but it’s more expensive.
The Minus connector is a great budget choice. To some people, polishing the stock connector will give them the same function; however, this connector is less than ten dollars anywhere you buy it, and also polishing is time-consuming. So I would suggest you save your time and use the minus connector.
