Glock the price for "Perfection"

Recenty I started a project to put together a gun specifically for working out. I wanted a 9mm and with some help from members ended up getting a Glock 43. I finally got her to what I wanted, and figured I would share her quick, but expensive journey.

First was the gun itself along with the Taran tactical +1 and +2 extensions along with the talon rubber grip. It now had the capacity similar to other single stacks in this category. I also changed the sights to a set of Trijicon bright and tough night sights. I tried this combo out while doing 1/2 mile runs between firing. I did three cycles of this which produced some decent results, but still something seemed lacking. The trigger still seemed very heavy as compaired to the other "Perfect" Glock triggers. Also the safety shoe was raised enough to cause a sore finger while shooting. I also switched the Talon grip for a Hogue grip to provide a more sufficient grip with sweat soaked hands.




Shortly after I picked up the Ghost edge 3.5 lb connector and back to the range I went. The trigger felt much better now but still had the bite on the finger from the safety shoe. This caused me to naturally want to put my finger in the side curve going up to the safety, but this causes me to push the gun left a little. I have owned other glocks in the past, but none of the models seemed to bite this much. It might of been my trigger was an anomaly for this. Also the take up seemed a little to much for my liking. After doing some research I chose a Overwatch precision TAC trigger. I received the trigger today and installed it and headed out to the range again. My first impression of the new trigger was that this is how it should come stock. The take up was reduced significantly and the break was nice and crisp. The flat face is so much better than the stock trigger, and the safety shoe goes completely flat when depressed. The range trip provided much improved results and the shifted impact was more from slight movement of the gun as I fired and not from the way the trigger was pulled. The target is a 4" circle and this was the typical group I was getting at 7 and 10 yards.






So what was the cost to build this "Perfection" for me.


Gun $475 + tax
Taran +1 $30
Taran +2 $35
Talon grip $18
Trijicon sights $107
Ghost 3.5 connector $30
Overwatch trigger $130
Hogue grip $18

Total: with tax and shipping about $900

I can only imagine how expensive some of these custom builds get, and really its still just a glock.

It makes me wish sig had a non safety thin pistol like a p290 striker or a p320 single stack. I am not disappoint with the outcome, but if something is "Perfection " why would so many companys make aftermarket upgrade parts.

So what is the term when you make Perfection a lot more perfect?

The term you are searching for is *expensive*.
Nice build.

Should have bought a Sig right from the beginning and eliminated all that aggravation.

Folks have spent more on guns and ended up with less.

As long as you're happy with what you spent for what you ended up with, that's what counts.

Frankly, I don't care what brand name is on my gun if I shoot it well. $900 for a pistol that I shoot lights-out is money well-spent in my book.

i have a similar build with mine, got it through the blue label program though. Nice build. The accessories definitely add up. Ive got at least 200 into my glock. Great little gun though.

My 43 needed $50 worth of night sights to do just what yours did. But hey, to each his own.

You did good with your 43. I have the same gun did the same thing you have done but left the trigger alone, it's my carry gun and does bite but if i have to use it i would have to thing about why i am shooting someone and not the bite. I did a polish job on the trigger. I have six Glocks five of which i use for target shooting and have changed the trigger on five of them because of the trigger bite. What i like about Glocks is what you can do with them like you can built an AR15. you can make a Glock a custom gun.

I agree with this - factory Meprolights are $57 installed if you send your slide in to Glock -

Personally I'd rather use the MagGuts +1 internals and keep the factory flush magazines - and I keep my Glock triggers factory, especially on carry pistols -

I don't own a 43 but I own a 19 and 26 Gen4 and have zero qualms about the factory Gen4 triggers - The Gen3's and earlier were not good, but they did make improvements to the trigger on the Gen4's -

Again I don't currently own a 43 but was thinking of getting one this summer with my Blue Label annual discount, single stack would be good for summer carry -

This goes back to a comment I made in an earlier thread about polymer guns being money pits until it was what the person wanted. P225A1 would have been the same money and need nothing out of the box except shot.

BTW-hope your 3.5 GHOST doesn't go tits up on you. I have seen far too many of them fail between 500 and 1,000 rds. I personally had one fail on me and even after I replaced with a factory connector, I still had no faith in the gun. Good luck with it.
