Just bought a Glock 17 in o.d. green W/glock tru dot night siights. Thinking about accessories. I think I'm gonna try out decal rubber grip, extended slide and mag release. Any thoughts?
If it were me, I would leave it like it is (maybe add the grip). More chances of snagging with the controls sticking way out there, IMO. I don't have any trouble with factory controls though, so YMMV. My G27 is "bone stock" with factory Night Sights, and that's it.
The best first accessory is the first 1,000 rounds.
I had an extended slide release put on my first Glock before I even paid for it. Being left-handed, it was a near necessity for me. The extended slide release isn't really that much larger than the stock one for the 17, so I don't think that you'd have snag issues with it. I haven't experienced any with the extended slide release on my 19. By the way, the factory extended slide release is actually a stock part on the 34 and 35.
As for accessories, I think just a lot of ammo is a good first step and I might also consider a few extra mags, too. Search around and they aren't too expensive. And speaking of mags, at some point, grab a GTUL - it's a godsend for when it's time to disassemble and clean up your magazines.
Good luck and enjoy the new Glock. They are fun guns for a lot of uses.
I like the rubber grip panels. A lot. Tried the sandpaper ones first. I do NOT recommend them. Tremendous grip. I almost immediately peeled the left hand panel back off, but not before carrying the pistol in an IWB holster peeled a strip of hide off my hip. Ouch. Shooting limited practice was fine, but 400+ rounds at practice resulted in road-rash on the heel of my right paw.
Rubber is much better. Good grip without the pain. I also added a polished 3.5lb transfer bar (MUCHO trigger improvement, though 3.5 lbs might be a bit light with the improvement to the smoothness of the pull. I might soon go to 5 and polish it.) and I added a grip plug since I'm frequently in a sandy environment.
