A while back I did a Youtube video inspired by one from Nutnfancy and TNP on installing some of the Glock modifications he recommends. I really enjoyed doing the video, and in part, the only reason this site exists is because of that video. Everything here can be done one your own without paying for an gunsmith, as a matter of fact everything here can be done for very little money and installed in just an hour or two.
With permission from Nutnfancy himself, I’ve embedded the original Glock Mod video here…
Here is a list of the parts you’ll need to spec your Glock out like mine. Since the video I’ve added the Glockmeister Tungsten Guide Rod, and I highly recommended it! The Armorer’s plate is rather useful, although I failed to mention it in the video, while working on adjusting the TCT bar. If you fail to shorten the bar enough, your gun will fail for fire, and you wont be able to take it down. The Armorer’s plate allows you reset the firing pin which will let you take the gun down and try again.

Without further delay, here is my original Youtube video…
Adjusting the TCT bar
Normally, adjusting the TCT bar consists of making small adjustments, and keeping the edge of the bar straight (at a 90 degree angle). However, Dave Spaulding has come up with a new method that results in a much crisper trigger, and what some people describe as a 1911 type reset. Dave cuts the TCT bar at an upward angle, preventing drag as the trigger bar is set into place. For more information see the Ghost Inc website.
The 25¢ Trigger Job
This has become quite popular on most of the forms in the past few years. Basically it consists of using a dremel buffing wheel and some Flitz metal polish to put some shine on the trigger bar, trigger connector, and the firing pin lug. This job does require a complete tear down of the Glock, but it is still quite simple to do. For more details, please visit Mr. Poyz’s site.
All said and done, these mods are simple and quick to do and they really do give you quite an increase in performance out of your Glock. You may of noticed that I’ve left out the addition of an extended magazine release. Since I was working with the Glock Gen4, it already comes from the factory with a great magazine release, and never felt the need to modify it in any way. If you have any questions, or any additional ideas, please feel free to leave a comment and we will try to answer your question to the best of our abilities.
