Greetings,

If I were shooting a Glock at 7 yards missing the pie plates, I would certainly entertain the idea of machine rest testing my pistol.

Cheers,

Dave

Do you have to remove the plastic grips to clamp into the RR.... oh wait there'd be nothing left.

I am actually fascinated to hear how a stock glock shoots @50yds. I have owned over a dozen of them, and there are (millions?) in circulation, and no one has any hard data as to accuracy on these things. As Dave points out.. rarely have I tried to shoot anything past 7 yards with one.

I just acquired a dogsh!tbrown G19x and am having fun scaring the indoor range commandos by shooting it only at 25 yards. I shoot at B-8 repair centers I saved up from our indoor 22 matches and Fiocchi 115g FMJ holds the black easily. I bought the gun as the lowest common denominator pistol for other forms of competition. The G19X had the best trigger in the store and felt like the Gucci Glocks. The barrel hood fits tight and the grip fits me (unlike the dimension lumber feeling grips of the past versions of perfection).

It would be a hoot to get some Atlanta Arms AMU ammo and Ransom Rest it. I also look forward to seeing if I can keep all shots on paper at 50 yards when I get a chance to shoot outdoors.

I recently acquired a Glock Model 34 generation 3.  And like Sav-tevp, been shooting them with standard bullseye targets at 25 and 50 yards.   

While the trigger is um....."Interesting", what is funny is the looks I get from the tacti-cool crowd.  

While the trigger is not acceptable to me as a bullseye quality trigger, its not that bad.

FWIW I have a few Glocks and I have installed TR Grahams match grade barrel locks in all of them. It's basically a slide take down lever with a smaller slot. More consistent lock up. The larger the caliber the more accuracy achieved. If you have any interest TR Graham's email is grhm458@cs.com. There are those that claim barrel chipping but I have used them for over ten years and never had a problem.

"My mom said I could" is my usual answer when someone tells me I should only shoot at 7 or 10 yards, or that I shouldn't take apart my Colt revolvers. I take a Smokey Yunick approach to conventional wisdom.

Well, you've already got a Gen3 trigger bar, Cranky. A Ghost Edge, Pro 3.3, or Evo Elite connector will take the trigger the rest of the way. All three will eliminate the "wall" before the break. The Pro and Evo Elite also have overtravel stops, but require fitting. You're going to need a Dremel and a file, and a stone comes in handy. The Edge doesn't have an overtravel stop, but it's drop-in.

You can also try the Ghost spring kit while you're at it, but using the entire kit results in a perhaps too light trigger and can make the pistol a little ammo-sensitive.

BTW, I actually think that Glocks are great guns proven by the # of L.E.agencies over the years, but I don't & won't own 1 due to their butt ugliness. Just a FWIW.

Oh crap, now I need a ball-peen hammer too.
Some people like form as well as function.

My son shoots a Glock 34 box stock in our local PPC matches. Last week he cranked out a 588 out of 600 possible and gave me a run for my money. As far as service pistols go I think they are pretty darn good. But they are utilitarian butt ugly.

I have about a dozen of Glocks.  Carry two of them - 43 and 26, Have 17 at my bed side.  Have three 17Ls - two are the shooters, one is pristine, - nice target instruments, and so is mentioned several times in this tread - 34.  Have 40MOS in 10mm and 41 in 45ACP, - solid guns, never mind sights, - I replaced those as soon as guns out of the box.  Shut 19x first time today, - latest addition to my collection.  Very nice shooting gun, and BTW comes with sights, that I don't have to replace.  Yet, I have no hesitation to use any of these as a hammer (making sure first it is unloaded, of course) if I need to, and no other more suitable instrument is available.  Yes, they are f-ugly, but, as one of my friends calls them, - these are the truck guns.  The ones, that you through under the seat, and not worry if they will get dirty, and will not shoot when you need them too.  Just proper tool for proper job.

I can sort of understand making a ransom rest insert for a Glock. I sometimes waste my time testing things. Even going so far as making a mount to do it. Rolling Eyes I get bored.

I tried for the longest time trying to make a target pistol out of a M&P.  I own about all the models and came the closest with a 9mm long CORE with every thing changed in it even a fitted barrel.  The manager at the range kept telling me I was never going to make a BE gun out of it but I didn't listen very well besides he carried a Glock what did he know.  One day I walked into the range store and there in the counter was a beautiful 1911 Gold Cup which I bought and have never bought another M&P.  I am now up to 26 handguns with the last one KC did for me and not a single one says Glock on it.  Don
